Fitness Gym Business Mentor

Chris Cooper Gym Business Mentorship Success | Ep. 205Chris has been coaching hockey players in fitness since 1996. He opened a gym in 2005 with hopes of turning it into a successful business. But long story short, he went close to bankruptcy.

His mentor helped him overcome. Knowing that others may have similar experiences in running a gym, he shared the lesson he learned from his mentor via blogs. Eventually, he compiled all these into a book and it became one of the bestsellers in the fitness industry.

Two-Brain Business

The blogs landed Chris on several speaking occasions. People kept coming to him for advice. In 2016, Two-Brain Business mentoring was born. And now, it is servicing to more than 350 clients worldwide.

Questions to Ask Your Clients

As a business owner, Chris wanted to have clients for many years. He shares that the first thing to do is identify your best clients in terms of profit and happiness. They are your key clients.

“Another big mistake that a lot of entrepreneurs make is that they project what they want onto their clients way too often.” – Chris Cooper

Next, ask them three questions: the favorite aspect of the gym, fitness industry frustration, and the biggest challenge in life after leaving. Behind these questions are reasons that Chris discusses in this episode.

About Jaime Jay

Meet Jaime Jay – a man who wears many hats, and wears them all admirably. He's a master connector, an entrepreneur extraordinaire, and a published author who knows how to get things done.

Before he found his way to the business world, Jaime served his country as a brave paratrooper in the U.S. Army. But that's just the beginning of his many accomplishments.

He's the founder of the renowned Bottleneck Distant Assistant Services firm, and his book "Quit Repeating Yourself" has become a must-read for entrepreneurs everywhere.

When he's not busy building his empire, you can find him on his beloved Harley Davidson, cruising through the countryside and taking in the invigorating effects of Uitwaaien – a Dutch practice that involves facing the wind to boost health and relieve stress.

He enjoys spending his free time outside building stuff with his wife, Nikita the dog and their two kittens (for now at least) Tommy and Tater.

He is ‘over-the-moon’ happily married to his wonderful wife Sara, his amazing daughter, Jessica, who is serving our country as a United States Army soldier. Jaime and Sara are the proud grand parents of two beautiful little girls.
