The Fitness Franchise Podcast is back with another fantastic interview. Today, Bryce Henson interviews Barrett Henson, a former college athlete who shares his experience owning a Fit Body Boot Camp franchise.

His franchise location has consistently made the top 10 for both revenue and community impact. He also serves as a franchise business coach for the Fit Body Boot Camp brand and mentors over 100 franchise owners across the U.S. and Canada.

Barrett breaks down why it's so essential to expect greatness from yourself, how to reinforce successful behavior within your coaches and staff, the hidden gem of being a franchise owner, and so much more.

"From a business standpoint, I believe you can do a lot more than what you think you can. Starting out, I was the coach, I was the admin, I was the phone person, the sales guy, and the janitor. There were many, many late nights doing a lot of stuff, and I'm so blessed because of it. I literally put in the reps to learn the business inside and out." -Barrett Henson
