When I made my career change into personal training 5 years ago, I started following the Fitness Consulting Group’s work. I attended an Elite Training Workshop in Napa in 2011 and the information I was able to gain there — both in terms of what I could bring back to my clients AND what I could apply to my business — was tremendous and easily implemented. Fast forward to 2013 in a new city where I had to start by business from scratch, I decided to attend FCG’s annual summit in Louisville where I was warmly greeted — by name — by Nick Berry. It was there that I decided to take the leap and join the Accelerator Coaching Program.
I started IzzyFit organically. I was so excited to be my own boss and make the rules and have passion for my career while also allowing me to have a life with family and friends. The company was built on a personal training structure I was familiar and comfortable with: 1-on-1 coaching. While I was slowly building up my client base it became very clear that, unless I raised my rates dramatically — effectively pricing myself out of my market completely — there would be a limit to how much I could make which would render my work/life structure incredibly imbalanced and unhealthy.
The first Accelerator Coaching Live Coaching Day I attended was in January of 2014. It was then that everything changed. There, in our meeting room, after digging into what was important to me and what my coaching philosophy was, I decided to move to 2-on-1 coaching. Low an behold, with the coaches’ guidance, I was suddenly pulling some 5-figure months and reached my financial goals at the end of the year, raising my gross revenue by 50% from 2013 to 2014.
Numbers aside, I am learning how IzzyFit can operate smoothly and consistently while staying true to its core values and purpose. I talk to my coach every week to make sure I stay on track and troubleshoot when things don’t as planned.
The most important aspect of the Accelerator Coaching Program for me, though, is that every coach sees me as a person first and a business owner second. The Fitness Consulting Group has become family I look forward to seeing who treat me and my company with respect, tough love and compassion.
They will give you the tools and if you put them to work, fantastic things will happen.
