You don’t always have time to hit the gym, the trails or your workout environment of preference as much as you like. Travel, life, family and other plans can get in the way, but as a fitness pro you know that anywhere can be your “gym.” It might require a little creativity, but breaking out of your routine is almost always a good thing. Just because a special event has put a kink in your usual plans doesn’t mean you have to skip your workout. You just have to get more innovative.
You have a passion for fitness, or maybe just a particular niche (like Zumba). You’re so committed that you went ahead and got certified in your fitness love of choice, read regular blogs on the subject and perhaps dream of owning your own yoga studio one day. That’s an admirable goal, but it’s also a highly competitive field. However, there’s not just one type of personality that has the makings for a successful fitness entrepreneur.
