STRONG Life Ep. 171: STRONG Life Podcast QnA: Gym / Strength Coach Business, Life Lessons & Abundance Mindset.
Actually, the title of this blog post is kinda lame compared to all the awesome questions (and of course my answers 🙂 that came through this QnA. It has also been a LONG time since I've held a QnA opportunity. This was refreshing and FUN! The questions were great.
Here's just some of the topics / questions answered:
From the gym business, strength coach "problems", lessons learned from The STRONG Life Experience, abundance mentality and much more, this was a FUN & Powerful podcast.
- When should you go from being a Coach in your garage to renting your first space?
- Biggest takeaway I had from the recent STRONG Life Experience
- Is it important to give away "free stuff" all the time? (Note: My simple answer shoulda been...... When you do not buy something / invest with dollars, you have LESS skin in the game, hence, if it's free, you simply don't value it as much, you have LESS urgency to take action). There's more to this!
- Training large groups of athletes with limited equipment
- Advice for Strength & Conditioning Interns (By the way, I can ALWAYS use a hard working, reliable intern at my Manasquan & Scotch Plains Underground Strength Gym)
- When should you take a rest day?
- How old is "tool old" when you're a gym owner / Strength Coach?
- How to handle the athletes who get injured training at their high school when you're an independent strength coach?
There are LOTS more of awesome questions answered so dig in and listen!
