    Special Edition - The Coronavirus Chronicles - Finale

    Special Edition - The Coronavirus Chronicles - Finale

    Back to business but not as usual. This episode marks the opening week of gyms, personal training studios, etc. and the finale of The Coronavirus Chronicles. Personally, I went from having about 40 clients to working with 15 during the week, having 23 postpone until maybe July, and 2 actually quitting all together for different reasons. There's been a mix of reactions to the steps gyms are taking to adhere to the guidelines. Beyond the pandemic there are other things happening in our world that continue to plague our society which changes my focus throughout this episode. Thank you for listening to this special edition of Fitness Candor Podcast, I hope it helped someone. Stay safe, be kind to each other and I'll talk to you later.

    Special Edition - The Coronavirus Chronicles 5/18/2020 - 5/24/2020

    This is the last week before I return to work. I keep things short again as I tried to soak up as much time with Melissa and Kennedy as possible. It's not that I'm not looking forward to working again, it's that this time away from work went by so fast and I'm hoping I made the best of it. I'm aware that a lot of people are living in different circumstances so I try not to dwell on my situation but I'm having mixed feelings about the upcoming week.
    This will be the last installment of the at home Coronavirus Chronicles and I'll recored a going back to work version then call it a wrap. Thanks for listening everyone!

    Telling everyone that this is the 9th installment of The Coronavirus Chronicles is hard to believe. When I first started recording these I knew time would fly and I wanted to capture emotions and thoughts along the way and I think I did just that...and I was right, time flew. This series is much shorter than past episodes because it wasn't the best of weeks and I honestly didn't feel like reporting that much so there's only one check in per day which worked out nicely. I'll continue the final week the same way and maybe have a wrap up episode the week the gym opens. I hope everyone is well!

    Special Edition - The Coronavirus Chronicles 5/4/2020 - 5/10/2020

    I'm not so sure I can call these podcasts "special editions" much longer. A lot of confusion this week with the announcement of other businesses reopening but no mention of gyms, fitness centers, etc. I spoke with some other gym owners around the country and mention it briefly. You'll hear a little frustration that that lead to some short recordings but overall it really wasn't a bad week. I hope everyone is doing well!

    Special Edition - The Coronavirus Chronicles 4/27/2020 - 5/3/2020

    The biggest piece of this chronicle is Ohio Governor DeWine's reopening announcement and its impact on what happens next.  By now most people know how it turns out but my reaction is interesting. The rest of the week had a couple of surprises as well that hit close to home.

True reflection of the profession

Most fitness podcasts focus primarily on the physiology of the job. Some will focus on the business side but primarily on the customer service and/or sales portion. Almost none speak about accounting, finance, psychology, and even the philanthropy of the profession. To have a successful career, you can’t just be book smart. You have to educate yourself in all aspects of it, or at least have some fluency. That’s why I like this podcast. The variety of topics and professionals show how diverse the industry really is. It’s like a one-stop shop for education. That makes this podcast valuable, efficient, and effective for the working professional.

Awesome

Eric is super genuine about his passion to help others. Great guests providing knowledge on many topics with real life application! It's tough to see through the fluff in the industry and Eric provides a guiding light.
