Keep it up

I’ve been listening to this podcast for 4 months now. I’m a chiropractor getting ready to open a personal training studio in order to give more value to my patients. It’s scary, but listening g to Jim and his guests keeps me motivated as well as gives me great information. I can’t recommend this enough to current or aspiring gym owners. Jim, I’m in Kirkwood, MO not far from you. I’d love to take you out to lunch or coffee some day and see your operation.

Usable real world knowledge

I listen to every masters in fitness business podcast numerous times. As newer small studio owner this knowledge and the experiences that are shared are invaluable. There are so many fears and questions that I have as I look to grow to help more people. Jim and his guests touch on so many of them and give me confidence as l continue to change more lives. It is not easy but this podcast helps layout tons of scenarios of studio and gym owners successes and mistakes. Keep up the great work JIM
