Fitness CEO

May 12, 2021

As a business owner, it's your vision and leadership that drives the direction of the ship. However, it means nothing without the dedicated individuals working alongside you. It's ultimately the team that will help you achieve the end goal. If you're able to lead them, your business will rise, but if you fail to acknowledge that the buck stops with you, you will eventually fail. 

In today's Fitness Franchise Podcast, Bryce Henson speaks with Matt Schneider, the Executive Director of Franchise Development of Fit Body Boot Camp and instructor for the Modern Day Knight Project. Matt's journey from a police officer to a US Marshall, SWAT Team member, and eventually a fitness entrepreneur is not one you want to miss. He explains the mindset it takes to be a success, keeping a level head in times of chaos, ineffective leadership, the power of proximity, and so much more.

"Nobody really ever achieves a high level of success by themselves. People can achieve certain amounts of success, but if you want to have real success and real impact, it requires a team." -Matt Schneider
