If you’ve never heard of Sam, that’s because he’s actually doing it in the real world instead of talking about it online.  Him and his business are an example of the balance in practice and service, operations and marketing that it takes to “get” this Personal Training thing. If I’m raving a little bit about this guy, it’s because I’ve done enough things in different places to appreciate what Sam has accomplished as a Personal trainer and the level he’s taken this game to.
