Another fun 27 minutes of my day…a hell of a lot more fun than certain other parts of this weekend. (That is an allusion to some personal issues that arose over the weekend, but I’m not going to drag everyone’s mood down by talking about it here!) It’s really killing me to see what Brett has in store for me in phase 2!
Robert gave me a report on tonight’s Cohoes Fit Club. We had about six people show up. Five of them were new. The sixth was that woman Nancy, who did most of Pure Cardio last time. One of the people who replied to my Craigslist ad expressed interest in being a coach, and I got a second customer to boot. If we can just keep the momentum (and attendance!) growing, then I’ll be a star diamond and beyond before I know it!
A lot of coaches I meet always say, “As coaches we really need to be more about the fitness than the business,” but here’s the deal: we have to focus at least SOMEWHAT on the business in order to get the customers under us, and then to get those customers become coaches…because once you reach a certain income level, then you can QUIT your day job and be about fitness all the time!
