Get the Basics…
Know your client’s problems
Don’t rush things by trying to execute too early
Mission-focused management helps your business adapt in a highly volatile market
In a recent team meeting, our CEO shared his notes from Steve Blank‘s book, The Four Steps to the Epiphany: Successful Strategies for Products that Win.

Practice mission-centric management. Mission-centric management offers the flexibility to deal with rapidly changing situations and exploit fleeting windows of clients and market opportunity. Mission-centric management has five unique parts:
Mutual trust and communication

Client Workout Calendar Update
With our client workout calendar update, we have removed the steps required to assign workout plans to clients and start/stop their workout plans.
You can now add workouts directly to your client’s workout calendar, and the workouts will quickly display in the app. To make schedule adjustments, just drag & drop workouts on the calendar as needed!
You can still create workout plans the old way if you’d like, then you can just import the entire plan onto your client’s workout calendar.
