"I don't like to ask someone to do something I'm not willing to do myself. Obviously, as we grow we can't be everywhere at the same time, but keeping this in mind makes you think about whether something is really that important." - Robert Dyer

Robert Dyer interviewed for Livestrong - Starting a Fit Biz

Screen shot from Livestrong article featuring Robert DyerFor the recent Livestrong article, What Training Do You Need to Start an Exercise Gym? writer and fitness expert, Trillia Newbell of Trill Fitness needed the advice of someone who knew exactly what's involved in starting an exercise gym. And so she interviewed Robert Dyer, whose years of doing exactly that made him well-acquainted with the rewards as well as potential pitfalls.

Here, Robert is quoted in the article:

"One thing that helped me was understanding and building relationships in the industry," said Dyer. One way to do this is through social networking via LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook or similar sites. Begin to get to know key players in the industry and learn what they do and how they do it and begin to connect. Make a contact and ask advice. If social networking does not appeal to you, find ways to connect with a local gym owner."

To learn more, including thoughts on business plans, the willingness to make sacrifices, and resources for additional training, read the complete article here.
