This week on The Business of Lifting Weights, we reflect on 6 years running a successful gym in the highly competitive landscape of San Diego Gyms. We’ve been through a lot in those years, but ultimately our success comes down to 6 characteristics that have gone unchanged and allowed us to continue to grow year after year.


  1. Culture
  2. People
  3. Keeping Things Net Positive
  4. Ability to Pivot
  5. Strong Internal Compass
  6. Multiple Lenses

To read in depth about these characteristics in addition to the podcast, check out the blog post Reflections on 6 Years of Operating a Successful Gym.
