What is mentorship? And what does “successful” mean now?

Pat Barber Gym Management, Interviews


In this webisode, I chat with WUWO member and Two Brains coach Ashley Andrews.

When Ashley’s top coaches walked out the door with 40 of her members to open a gym 2 miles down the road, she contacted Chris Cooper (of Two Brains) to figure out where she’d gone wrong.

We discuss:
– What mentorship is and how it can benefit you
– How to use extrinsic and intrinsic motivation to build and maintain a solid business
– What makes Two Brains special in the crowded, sometimes shady world of fitness business coaching
– What does “successful” mean now?
– A formula to help you determine how much to invest in mentorship
– How to manage big changes at your gym

You might know me from the CrossFit Games, where I’ve competed since 2008, but I have also been the Head of Coaches Development for one of the largest CrossFits in the world. I have the honor of being one of the few L4 coaches, and I still love teaching L1s and L2s for CFHQ (I’ve put about 15,000 coaches through their L1’s). I'm husband to the most wonderful woman in the world, and a father who loves surfing, Magic: The Gathering, knife making and good coffee.
