How “Personalized” Training Yields Stunning Retention, Featuring Greg Johnson

  •  Season 3, Episode 17

On today’s episode, host Sandy Webster digs in with Greg Johnson, MS, CSCS, owner of Varimax Fitness in Sacramento, CA. His company’s client retention rate of 85-95% would be impressive during normal times, but during pandemic when so many pros have struggled with basic survival, it’s an incredibly significant stat. Today, we’ll find out how he does it and also learn more about his upcoming IDEA World session.

Greg is owner of Varimax Fitness in Sacramento. With more than more than 20 certifications and specialty qualifications, Greg’s “never stop learning” philosophy is crystal clear. In the past decade, Greg has also become a savvy fitness entrepreneur. He sees 60-80 clients a week in a private or semi-private setting. He applies his Master’s degree in kinesiology on performance enhancement and injury prevention for all.
