How I Went From A Struggling Personal Trainer To Multiple Business Owner – Josh Mullin


Many people go through a certain point in their life when they wanted to step up their career and undergo transition. That is exactly what Josh went through, the owner of PT Toolbox & Southend Personal Trainer Academy. At the age, of 15, he was qualified as a gym instructor and two years after he became a personal trainer.

With years of experience in teaching courses to personal trainers, he always kind of knew that he wouldn’t want to be a personal trainer forever. However, being a personal trainer allowed him to spot gaps in the market and what he could provide so he started to build the PT Toolbox – a one-stop resource for PTs. Besides this tool that he made easily available, he is also running training academies for PTs and aspiring PTs.

On today’s episode, Josh shares his major shift from being a personal trainer to being an owner of multiple businesses. He dives into how personal trainers can gain more clients, improve their technical knowledge and grow their business with PT Toolbox. By the way, we go in depth on how PT’s should take their marketing seriously for their fitness business.
