Now, onto a quick story that I’d like to share with you…

Last week I spoke with a Fitness Professional, who was interested in Business Coaching with me – she was maxed out at 8 clients and works 7 days a week, because she travels from house to house to train her clients in-person at their homes.

As I was speaking with her, I thought, “HOLY SHIT! I was doing this very thing 11-12 years ago! With all of the advances in online training, I cannot believe that there are Fitness Professionals out there who are STILL doing this!”

There IS a better way.

12 years ago, when I started out full-time in the fitness industry, I was working for two commercial gyms as a personal trainer and group fitness instructor, and training private clients in their homes on the side. I was a SLAVE to my business, working 6 days a week, 5 days, Monday through Friday, 6 am – 8pm, plus half days on Saturdays, running around like a crazy person to multiple locations, lugging kettlebells in and out of my car everywhere I traveled.

I’d go through my days in a burnt-out fog and would end the week on Friday completely toasted with only enough energy to collapse on my couch and press the button on the remote to watch marathon episodes of The Rachel Zoe Project. On Saturday mornings, I would drag myself out of bed to train a few clients and teach a cycling class. After, I would come home, and if I had energy, I would clean my apartment (oh fun!) and then collapse on my couch again for more BRAVO TV.

I DREADED Mondays as the 6-day cycle started again.

I literally was living my life as a zombie. This zombie-like state, with no interest, other than to zone out comatose on the couch to try to recover at the end of the week, was so bad, that I almost blew off Eric when we had our first date! Time after time, I would choose being anti-social over social connection.

I knew this was no way to live. Then, fast forward 5 years to 2013, thanks to the exposure that writing my blog IronBodyByArtemis and regularly posting on Facebook gave me, I opened up the door for new opportunities that helped me to create a better way to work so that I could have a better quality of life – I had left the commercial gym and owned my own facility and I was training clients ONLINE with one of the VERY FIRST online training platforms.

What killed me even more as I spoke with this Fitness Professional, was that even though she loves her work, she HATES her schedule, and has hated is for AGES. BUT, hasn’t done anything about it until NOW, because she’s being FORCED to explore a better way to work due to the current crisis.

She is wasting precious time holding onto something that isn’t working to get a little more out of something that she doesn’t want, INSTEAD OF letting go of that which is preventing her from THRIVING, so that she can create a better opportunity, THRIVE, and GROW.

If you are like her, to be honest, the current crisis is a blessing and an opportunity because it’s driving you to make a change for a better way to work and a better quality of life.

AND, let’s get real here, on May 1, we’re not just going to walk out our doors and get back to our normal lives. This IS the NEW NORMAL. This IS the way businesses will be run from here on out. Even when you get back to training clients in-person, your in-person business will be a FRACTION of your online business. If you need help making the change to transition your business online, and to build it to THRIVE AND GROW despite the current pandemic and economic transition, I CAN HELP YOU.
