In this episode we talk with Seth Munsey, owner of Iron Republic, founder of Disc Golf Strong and Master Trainer for DVRT and Original Strength. Seth reminds us of the importance of committing 100% to what we are doing and not just showing up to be there, but really showing up with intent and purpose. Seth shares some great stories about how connecting and making learning a priority helped him build his business.

Seth also not only gives some great business advice to trainers starting out, but reminds us that training and being a coach isn’t about your love for working out, but instead about your client and their goals.
