If you’re a fitness pro and have thought about starting your own outdoor bootcamp but aren’t sure where to start, check out my Outdoor Bootcamp 101! From nuts to bolts, this guide has all the info you need to get started
Hey friends, I’m shaking things up a little bit today and sharing some resources for personal trainers. I haven’t posted a whole lot on my blog about personal training, group fitness, or running a fitness business, but I started writing for the ISSA blog recently and I wanted to share those articles with everyone here in case you are a fitness pro and want to enrich your business!

I had a personal trainer friend give me some amazing tips on starting my outdoor classes, and I did some research, and jumped in with both feet even though I wasn’t 100% sure how to make everything work.
