Have you ever had an employee leave and take over $15,000 of revenue with them? Our guest was THAT employee, but don’t get triggered just yet.


In this episode, we’re talking to 1-on-1 Active Life Coach and personal trainer Larry Gaier. He talks about his decision to leave his job at New York Sport Club and take his clients with him.


If you haven’t experienced remote programming for yourself it may seem unlikely that you can achieve the same results, if not better, and never even see your coach or trainer in person. We discuss the difficult choice he had to make in leaving his dream job and why he doesn’t regret it for a second. Plus, Larry talks about how he restructured his services to do less work while making more money, having a greater impact on his clients, and how you can start doing the same.
