  What’s up gang – it’s been a bit longer than I’d like between articles here, but if I’m MIA, you’d better believe that I’m hustling hard behind the scenes.  Hope your fitness business is growing and you’re in heavy grind mode as well. Right now I’ve got something cool that you might like.  I recently turned in my monthly column for PFP Magazine, and like I’ve mentioned before, I kept it on the Vanilla side. The rest of the fitness business isn’t really ready for the type of stuff we talk about here, and especially in my programs. Actually the article I sent over was a variation on an old article I had here almost two years ago.  Back then this info was pretty groundbreaking, but by now, everything I shared is pretty much common knowledge to you if you’ve been a reader of this site for any amount of time. Sadly, for the rest of the industry, most of my article I’m sure will be earth shattering.  That’s fine as long as it gets them moving in the right direction. What I’m going to do right now is break down for you everything I put into that article.  […]

  I want to start out today by giving much deserved props to the legend Jack Lalanne, who recently passed away. If you know of Jack’s accomplishments, chances are you’re only aware of a portion of them.  That’s because through his long career, he was involved in almost every type of fitness business imagineable, and has done more to impact the industry than probably anyone else in history. It’s hard to estimate how much we owe to him – the truth is a lot of us wouldn’t be in this business without him.  He popularized fitness in America through his long running television show.  He invented much of the gym equipment we see today, owned a chain of gyms (that eventually was bought by Bally’s), and made a fortune in direct marketing. Do yourself a favor today and do a little research into him, his accomplishments, his history, his career, work ethic, passion, and some of his videos on youtube.   His magic is sure to rub off on you in some way, and you’ll find yourself a better person for it. There was a good article I wrote about Jack a couple of years ago that you’ll probably find valuable […]

    We’re now officially two weeks into the year.  How are your resolutions doing? Just kidding.  If you’re anything like me, I know you’re not in the “resolution” crowd. That’s for OTHER people, to give them excuses to make changes once a year (which they usually back out of).  But for me and you, we don’t need an excuse to make immediate, wholesale changes to what we’re doing.  Anytime is a good time to go harder.   And on the subject of the new year, I realize that I kind of missed the whole boat on writing good new year’s themed articles (God knows I milked Christmas for all it was worth).   So knowing that I’m beyond late, let me finally get into the NEW YEARS spirit.  Considering that this is the week that most people’s new years enthusiasm starts to diminish, I’m sure you won’t mind.   For this article, I want to hit you with “a BIG IDEA.” Do you want to know THE SECRET to success for personal trainers and fitness business owners?  And on the flip side, what causes more frustration, disappointment and failure than any other single factor?   In the training business, […]

  Hey gang – It’s been a great week for me in terms of progress on the projects I have going on in my businesses, some great content I got to deliver here on Super-Trainer (more of which I have for you today), and a promo that is doing real well (and ends today, which I’ll tell you about later). One article that got a huge response was the one from earlier this week about FAST MONEY.  To tell you the truth, I was a little hesitant about dropping this one.  After all, I was recommending the books of convicted felons and violent criminals as business education. I wasn’t sure if everyone would “get” what I was trying to say (not that I care all that much), but the reaction was overwhelmingly positive, which I was very glad to see. Like I pointed out in the article, you’ll find many major business success stories carefully toe both sides of the line of the law, proprietary, etiquette, and fair play to get massive success.  If that’s what you’re after, you’ll need to do the same thing too.  I’m currently reading the book TITAN, the biography of John D. Rockefeller, and one […]

  This is a pretty funny year … As I’m writing this, the date today is 1/11/11.  Yes, all 1’s.  The 1st of the year was like that too (1/1/11), and we have too more dates like this in November (11/1/11 and 11/11/11). Sure, it’s a cute coincidence about this year, but if you’re a serious results oriented person, have been following this site for a while, and been getting results with what you’ve been implementing in your fitness business either through the content or the programs …. well, the fact that you have so many number 1’s popping up in one year shouldn’t be taken lightly. You should take it as your cue to make this the year that you become number one, however you define that for yourself.  Be a better you, going harder at your particular stengths and interests, than anyone else possibly could. You also should appreciate that these dates full of 1’s are here as your measuring sticks – the first set in January to make sure you hit the new year hard, and the last set in November to cap the new year off with a bang. When I talk to trainers, I throw […]
