I feel like I'm incredibly lucky ...   

I've built a growing business while traveling to dozens of places all over the world and spending time with my wife Alison and son Calvin.

I could pretend this has been easy or claim I have a secret formula you can copy.

But the truth is that this has taken hard work.

I couldn’t have done it had I not developed good habits. (In fact, I wrote a whole book about them.)

In this week’s new article, some of our most successful Online Trainer Academy students share the most influential habits that helped them build the businesses (and lives) they wanted.

My advice: Choose one of the habits from this article—the one you believe will have the greatest return-on-investment for you—and start practicing it today.

I’ll never forget it …

It was a Friday—March 20, 2020—and I was sitting in the staff room with some other personal trainers at the gym in Edinburgh where we worked.

We were listening to a live broadcast from Prime Minister Boris Johnson, who had just ordered a nationwide shutdown that included gyms beginning at 10 p.m.

I had sensed something like this was coming.

When soccer leagues in the U.K. cancelled play a week earlier, I realized COVID-19 must be serious. So I’d started recording an exercise library.

I shot every variation of a squat I could think of, every version of a lunge you could do at home, every single push-up variation … I was at the gym until midnight. And then the next night I recorded 20-minute classes.

Other personal trainers were like, “What are you doing?”

I was the only one preparing.

Still when the official announcement came that gyms had to close, it didn’t seem real.

That night I couldn’t sleep. I got up at 4 a.m. and built my whole online training system.

By the time my clients woke up wondering what they were going to do, they already had an email from me with the solution …

I kept all but one of my original clients and added more at a time when most trainers were losing theirs.

I’ve since left my in-person position because I got so busy online.
