Action creates reaction. Keep moving and your actions will drive leads to the door, stop moving and you will die. Continue reading

Personal Trainers; 5 Ways to Treat Your Small Business Like it’s BIG.

Anthea-Altamura

It’s a pleasure to have a guest post today from Anthea Altamura of FitBiz. I’ve known Anthea and her partner David for many years. They’ve successfully run their own clubs – so well in fact, that their group training program, GO!45, is now licensed by clubs throughout Australia. Via FitBiz they’ve helped many fitness businesses (and Trainers) increase profits . More recently, they’ve begun developing new fitness professionals via FitCollege. Over to you Anthea…
