Podcast Episode 12: The Key to a Successful Fitness Business

In episode 12 of The Fitness Business Podcast, we were delighted to be joined by Paul Drew, co owner, and senior coach at Origin Fitness. Paul shared his story on building his business from the bottom up; starting with training a small number of clients from his co partner’s garage. Now, they work with over 160 clients in a large facility in Sandyford. 

Having learned a lot of lessons along the way, Paul gives us an insight into not only their successes to date, but what they would change if given the chance to do it all over again.
