Entreprenuer

I am a fitness entrepreneur and rarely do I come across podcasts that address this niche. The idea fit pro show checks all the boxes when it comes to relevancy, cutting edge science, business ideas and how to separate yourself in this industry. Another five star review for this tremendous organization!
