Welcome to the Fitness Business Asia podcast. I am your host, Jack Thomas, and today is part 2 or the interview with EricMalzone.
So in our last episode we did something a little differnet and turned the tables, with Eric interviewing me on BASE, our journey and the fitness scene in Asia.
In this episode, it’s my turn to interview Eric and we touch on Crossfit, how that’s exploded, the things they’re doing well and what the future holds for them.
We also discuss the importance of retention, a topic that is getting more coverage and is just so important in developing a strong business. We talk about trends and fitness tech that you’re seeing in the states and that we can expect to see in Asia soon and we also talk about how the fitness business game is not as easy as many anticipate and some of the shifts you can make in your mindset to gear up for success.It was great to connect with Eric so without further ado, here’s part 2 of our interview…
That was Eric Malzone of the Future of Fitness podcast. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank Eric for his time. It was great to connect and to hear his thoughts as someone who really has been embedded in the fitness industry over in the states for a while. He’s interviewed hundreds of people for his podcast so he has a deep insight into what’s going on.
Eric has a few projects on the go and is releasing a service that helps people create profitable online courses. All the links to his projects are in the shownotes.
