On today's episode, I chat with Tom Hamilton. Tom has been coaching for almost ten years, working with a wide range of clients from the gen pop to world record holders. He currently coaches at W10 in London, is the Head of Education at the IFBA and runs his own online coaching business. Tom has also competed at both bodybuilding and powerlifting, with a highlight being winning the world drug-free powerlifting championships in 2016. In this episode, we discuss low hanging fruit trainers that you can add to their coaching tomorrow morning, how to programme and get your clients strong and dealing with serious injuries. It's one of those "take notes and get actioning some practical stuff" kinda episodes.

I always have such enjoyable conversations about business with Sally, who is a returning guest after her first appearance on episode 164. Her journey into now owning a facility is incredibly relatable and I always appreciate her honesty about the challenges she's had. One of those challenges was how tough her first few years were, and how much she doubted herself and her business during that time. 99% of us go through that stage but we don't talk about it anywhere near as often as we should, so that's where we begin this podcast. We also discuss why managing your money is a huge part of business success as well as how she decided to she wanted to go into facility ownership.
