  What’s up trainers … While flipping through this month’s issue of Muscle & Fitness, past the photos of the juiced up circus side-shows and ads for NO EXPLODE, I saw something I wasn’t expecting:  a small article about Personal Training, from a real trainer, giving some non-traditional, real-world advice. It was Gunnar Peterson’s monthly column in the magazine.  If you’re new to this game and don’t know who Gunnar is, he practically owns the term “celebrity trainer” in the dictionary.  The question isn’t who does he train;  it’s more like you’d have an extremely hard time finding an a-list star he hasn’t. He was one of my original inspirations to get serious in this business; it was reading his book, THE WORKOUT while sitting in a Barnes & Nobles when I was flat broke, that showed me that becoming an independent personal trainer was a real, viable business (not the freak show I was used to at Bally’s).  Since then I’ve got to talk to him several times, he’s collaborated on fitnesss business products I’ve produced (and a new one coming soon), and has in ways been a mentor to me. Well, the reason this article suprised me was […]

    Even though I’ve had some big success with fitness bootcamps and have a very loud voice, I have to admit that running or operating large group classes are not really my thing (if you own any of the personal training business products I’ve produced, you know that high priced semi-private sessions are what I have the most experience with). But make no bones about it, large group training (ie bootcamps) is the present and future.  That’s why when it comes to bootcamps, you’ll see me bring on a lot of guests.  Today’s guest is Georgette Pann (creator of SURE RESULTS: THE ULTIMATE BOOK OF BOOTCAMP WORKOUTS). Georgette is a fitness industry vet who runs five completely outsourced bootcamps, has sold the most bootcamp info products in history, is a Clickbank Top 100 preferred seller, and has a loyal following in the fitness business.  She’s been on Super-Trainer before, but if you’re new to this site, it’s possible you still might not have heard of her.  That’s why right now I wanted to bring her on here for more info on what she does best: ——————————————————————————————— Georgette, you made a career jump from another industry into bootcamps and became […]
