What is the most fulfilling part of being a business leader in the fitness industry?
The fitness industry is a fun and sociable industry. With World Gym, where we have over 220 locations on six continents, our community is diverse but we all share something in common, a commitment to personal fitness and love for what we do. Those common bonds transcend our geography, affiliations, and cultures. It is fulfilling to work with such a diverse group of people all over the world who share common goals. One goal is to get more people into gyms so they can become more healthy and fit, which we believe is good for their happiness. It is pretty fulfilling to be selling health and happiness instead of products that might have more adverse effects.
