Pat and Taz Barber on Girls Gone WoD Podcast | Warmup & Workout

Taz and I talked with Joy and Claire from the “girls gone wod” podcast about programming, marriage hacks and the mistake of prioritizing competitors over your other members. We get real on some big issues like programming too much in the hour, and how to walk that fine line between giving-in to what members want or saying ‘no’ because you have their best interest at heart. This is one of the hardest things for gym owners — deciding whether to cater your methodologies to what people want (like more cardio, or a daily strength and metcon program) or going with what’s really best for members, even if they don’t like it. In this podcast episode, we lay it all out there so you can hear exactly what kind of challenges we’ve had and how we’ve dealt with these issues.

Here’s a link to the episode.
