Fitness Business Basics

by Derrick Wilburn, MBA

Description

Many fitness professionals find out the hard way that there's a lot more to starting a business than just running an ad in the local newspaper and raking in the clients. In addition, there is a vast difference between being an independent personal trainer and owning a business. This lecture examines some of the very basic, yet very critical—and often overlooked—elements that go into opening and running a successful enterprise.
