Within the walls of any successful fitness gym, it's the culture that sets the stage for success. As an owner, it's your responsibility to put the right people in place who carry out the values, mindset, behaviors, and beliefs that inspire clients to keep coming back. The bottom line is that culture will make or break your organization and be your greatest competitive advantage if done right.
In today's Fitness Franchise Podcast, Bryce Henson speaks with CJ Wehrkamp, a Fit Body Boot Camp franchise owner and CAP Coach (Coaching & Profitability), who helps dozens of franchise owners scale their business.
CJ gives us his insight into building a winning team that shares your vision, the importance of leading yourself before others, employees versus team members, how to follow up with leads, working with family, and so much more.
"When you're in the moment, you don't really see the learning lessons you could take from a situation. But what I learned is how you lead yourself, and your team is everything." -CJ Wehrkamp
