Episode 032: Coronavirus, how to make the most of uncertain times

The coronavirus has turned the fitness industry upside down at a massive scale, here’s how to make the most of uncertain times as a Fit Pro.

In today’s podcast, Neale and I talk about the problems and possibilities that come from the coronavirus epidemic and how this is appropriate to you as a FitPro.

This was filmed on 18th March, and the coronavirus is a fluid situation, so rules will have changed throughout

We hosted this podcast as a Live training session inside our closed Inner Circle Facebook group, where we went on to answer questions. If you want to see the full version of the podcast, with questions and answers, join us here:
