This week on the podcast I am joined by Charlie Reid. Charlie is a personal trainer in San Francisco who offers a custom-tailored approach to fitness. On this episode, Charlie shares how he got into personal training and how he built up a successful private personal training business. Charlie talks about the importance of being great at what you do, caring about your clients, and how being passionate are the keys to running a successful business in the personal training industry. We also talk about the overlaps between the personal training and yoga industry, and what yoga teachers can learn from Charlie's business. Finally, we talk about the benefits of strength training as a yogi, and how to get started with a strength training practice.

Enjoy!
