inspiration for extraordinary fitness careers


Issue 7


Hey everyone

Well, here we are; fast-approaching the second quarter of 2021.

Understandably, many of us are still scratching our heads and wondering how it’s been a year since COVID first arrived on the scene. Rest assured, it’s not unusual to be experiencing a little shell-shock from the fact that we
are still having our businesses directly impacted in so many varied ways.

But, what we can all be proud of is the support we are providing to our members and our clients, and hopefully, to each other.

The only way to successfully weather this storm is to keep planning for change, expecting the unexpected and getting comfortable with the uncomfortable. This issue, we’ve gathered up some pretty cool info that will hopefully help you achieve this.

Stay well, be fit and keep looking out and after each other.
