Episode Info: Whether it’s at an office desk or on the gym floor, the daily grind of hourly work get’s old. Sure, some people manage to work a superhuman quantity of hours each week and come away with good money. But what about the quality of that work? Is it providing something of true, lasting value to the client?  Being a successful trainer is not about spending every possible moment in the gym and getting burned out in the process. It’s about moving each client towards their unique fitness goals, using whatever tools and strategies are most effective. Today’s guest Eric Bach is leveraging the power of online fitness and marketing to make personal training less like a grind and more like a smartly-run business.  “Are you building a business that is going to be sustainable for you in the long term? What are the other trainers in your gym doing? Ask yourself, is that really what you want? Because if you don’t take the actions that you need now, you’re not going to have that in the future.” - Eric Bach About Eric Bach Eric Bach, CSCS is a personal trainer, author, and fitness business coach at Eric is passionate about helping trainers take their business online by cutting through information overload and helping coaches stop trading dollars for hours and build long-term, sustainable fitness businesses.   Eric’s hybrid training model pairs traditional one-on-one sessions in the gym with innovative online resources.
