Like many other fitness professionals, Tricia Murphy Madden has experienced both failure and success. On this episode of Empowered Entrepreneur, Madden, the director of education for Savvier Fitness and co-creator of Barre Above®, shares the lessons she has learned from her failure and how that experience helped her find success in other areas of the fitness industry.

A lot of planning goes into creating a stellar group fitness experience. Madden talks about how a lack of success in one business led to her finding her niche as a program developer and education manager. What gives a fitness facility an immediate sense of success? How does a fitness instructor improve? What are the contributing factors that gauge professionalism in group exercise?

    Great podcast! I just came across this podcast while being stuck at home because of the Coronavirus (April 2020). This is very timely for me as I’m pivoting within the fitness field —because of shelter at home — and learning new skills and looking towards the future.
