I am so fired up to have one of my best friends, Trina Gray, on the show today, who just happens to be one of the most driven & successful entrepreneurs I know. She’s also one of the best parents, coaches, and life-transformers I know as well. Trina and I go way back to when she joined my Mastermind in 2007, and she has continued to flourish and serve in so many capacities. We share many commonalities, and today we are talking about parenting, life, lessons learned, and our love of coaching people to a higher level. 


My friends, today’s episode will inspire you to live your best life with harmony and joy. Listen in and hear Trina share her immense wisdom on:

- Lessons learned in running a health club for over 15 years but most importantly the last 1 ½ years during COVID-19.

- Thoughts on where the industry is heading over the next 1-3 years.

- The three stages of parenting… parents listen up!

- As a busy Mom, lessons learned on how to live her best life personally.

- How Trina is coaching & serving women to lead their best lives also.

- What brings Trina the most joy in her life these days.


I hope that you find great value and inspiration in today’s SHOW. Please share it with your community, family, and friends and have them subscribe to our podcast, that would be amazing. As always, thanks for what you do!

5:51 - Trina shares her top 3 lessons learned running a health club.

Be willing to make a decision, move quickly, and move forward. Communication has been a source of my success in my business with clients, members, and my team. If you need to make a change in your business, now is the time!


19:30 - How do you see the fitness industry in 1-3 years?
Integrate the online presence. Be more relevant with your clients and members. Fitness is an essential need. Give them value adds outside of the gym.


25:07-  The three stages of parenting.

Show your kids at an early age your work ethic, share your business and goals. Communication and the early teen years are huge, have conversations with your kids. High School kids make choices, allow them to make choices for themselves vs. pleasing their parents.

Move through struggles faster and feel all the feelings. Self care - give yourself permission to take it more seriously. Slow down and do fewer things that allow you to do things better.

I had a vision of my life far before I ever had it. Seeing my health club open. Coaching other women to be the best versions of themselves
