After wrapping up college with an exercise science degree, dumping most of my made money into classes and certifications, and a few stray clients on the side who I was training during the week, I felt it was time to venture out on my own in the world of personal training.
Insert Sculpt Fitness Training LLC. Since I had no money to open up a training facility I found my way into training clients out of their homes. No matter what equipment you had in your house, I could come there and make it happen ! As time went on my business started growing and growing. Before I knew it, I was running out of time slots for new in-home clients because of having to incorporate travel times to get to their homes(I was training people all over god’s green earth, thankfully gas wasn’t $4 a gallon at that point!).
In 2008, I decided to make the leap of faith and open up a training studio with some of the cash I saved up. The most beautiful place on earth I thought. A 1,200 sq foot office space in a medical park was what my budget got me. Still looked like the doc had just moved out and I jumped right in ! Carpet, wall paper and all =). Now I had all my clients coming to me so I was able to make more time slots appear.
I still wanted more. I started incorporating some new training techniques using kettlebells and sandbags, ropes and some odd strength tools. I became obsessed with finding ways to write up new programs and get my clients the results they wanted while at the same time, spicing up the programs and giving clients a more “bang for your buck” workout. To this day, I still spend endless hours researching the top trainers and coaches in the country and see how they have found ways of making their businesses better.
