Lesson 2: Your business will last a long time if you take care of your body and brain.
No business benefits from the owner burning themselves out.
This is an industry that is plagued by burnout.
Being a personal trainer is not easy.
You are giving yourself physically, mentally and emotionally. You are usually working very long hours to make ends meet.
But when you add the stress of being a business owner on top of that it can put people over the edge.
The uncertainty of not knowing how to get more clients, hiring a staff and the financial side of this game cripples gym owners every day.
The ones that don’t learn how to do these things will fail. If you’re always tired, your brain is foggy and you never give yourself time, you’ll never learn this stuff.
The number one asset you have as a gym owner is your brain.
It kind of seems crazy that this is Number 2 on my list. I see many trainers turned gym owner completely let their health go.
They sleep like garbage, start to hate working out because all they want to do is get out of the gym and not pay attention to taking care of their health.
I only know this because I’ve been through this myself.
If I could send one message to my 29-year-old self it would be to make sure I was taking very good care of my most important asset, my personal health.
I know it sounds crazy but you may need to hire someone to help you with this. Not that you couldn’t do it on your own but you should practice what you preach to your clients and get a coach yourself.
