How to Find the Right Fitness Business Coach

 In podcasts

How can you find the right fitness business coach to accelerate your business success? What are you looking for and how do you know you’re a good fit?

If you’ve ever had a tutor, a trainer, or a sports coach of any kind, you know the value of getting it right by getting feedback and staying on track. If your fitness business could use a boost or you’re spinning without direction, and wonder if you could use a mentor, this is your episode.

Canadian fit pro Shawna Kaminski has been a fitness professional in the industry for over 30 years. She has a Bachelor of Kinesiology and Bachelor of Education and too many certifications to count. She is a teacher at heart, having taught school for 20 years.

Shawna is the #1 best selling author of ‘Lose Your Menopause Belly’ available on Amazon. During her career she’s owned a small group training studio and multiple fitness boot camps and helps thousands of online fitness clients worldwide with her fitness and coaching programs.

She’s appeared on national TV as a fitness expert, authored articles in numerous publications and created curriculum for international fitness businesses.

Shawna’s response to what she would differently if she were starting all over again was all about getting a mentor, and recruiting some one – a coach –  to accelerate her progress, spare her of mistakes, and eliminate the need to re-invent the wheel. I loved that answer – so I asked her –  when she got started 30 years ago  how she did it. The fitness industry looked entirely different. Shawna talked about her start and a pivotal decision she made about attending a conference.

“I know how to help people, I need to know how to make a business out of helping people.”
