    Gym Owners Response to the Shutdown

    Gym Owners Response to the Shutdown

    Brought to you by PerformBetter.com
    Highlights of Special Episode 278.5
    This was originally a Zoom call that I did for StrengthCoach.com.  I received a lot of great feedback so I wanted to make it available to a larger audience and through a different format.  You can still watch the video on StrengthCoach.com.
    Gym owners from across the country (and one from Canada) got together to discuss their COVID-19 Response.
    I asked:
    1- What are you doing for training (pdfs, zoom, apps, FB live, etc.)
    2- What has been your members response as far as membership continuation is concerned?
    3- What is the compliance so far? Are clients engaged?
    4- How are you engaging with staff?
    5- What is silver lining with all of this?

Nate Stenabaugh ,

Best in the industry

This is the class of podcast for strength and conditioning. The guest are top notch. They make you think and give great information. Additional segments are great as well, touching on several different topics to create a well rounded podcast. However, I don’t care for Train Heroic Data Driven segment. I don’t feel it adds much value. If they are a sponsor, that’s great, but they don’t need a segment. That one segment does NOT take away from a simply phenomenal podcast. Thank you for all the information!

Coach Sarah Brady ,

Great guest

The show is great because of its guests.

Harrison_L ,

True knowledge

These people know what they are talking about. Each topic and statement they could back up with research and proper arguments. Great to listen to and very educational.
