Greencastle, County Down, Northern Ireland Contact This Student: Rhanell Fitness

"Everyone who is considering the Academy: Do it! When I started the Academy I had mostly one-on-one personal training clients and a handful of online coaching clients. I did the course eight weeks ago and did exactly as Jonathan Goodman told us to. I created a package and gave it away for free to 10 people, three of which got amazing results. This was my advertisement: Do a good job and let everyone know! I now have over 100 clients and I'm fully booked until November. I'm flabbergasted, thank you!"
