Greg Mikolap was a recent guest who came on for our gym owner roundtable discussion a few months ago (8th of May 2020). He runs the gym Icon in Maidenhead, England and spent over 10 years in a commercial gym prior to that becoming the busiest trainer in that gym. And that is what we mainly explore today. We talk about his lockdown experience so far, how he priced his services in a commercial gym, developing a niche, the differences between trainers who last vs those who don’t and why Greg imagined himself wearing a cape before he went into consultations with PT prospects. I know you’re going to enjoy this as Greg speaks from the heart and details a lot of experiences that are just so common for the trainer.
