Episode 92: Behind the Scenes at Burg CrossFit

Burg CrossFit
Tony Vouis and Jen Hutson

Tony Voius and Jen Hutson are the owners of Burg CrossFit.

The duo has had a crazy road in the ownership of their gym. Whether it was exponential growth, a landlord jacking up building prices or COVID-19, they’ve had to overcome a lot.

However, one thing that has got them through it all is imperfect action. Both agreed you simply have to take action and move forward; if it’s imperfect, correct as you go.

As you listen to this episode, ask yourself what imperfect action you could take today to propel your business into the future.
