The Gym Owner’s Handbook - Chris Cooper

Gym Owners Fitness Business Podcast And Women Leaders Fitness Business Podcast - Mel Tempest

Chris Cooper - Two Brain Business  Chris Cooper believes hard-working business owners are the heart and soul of the economy, and he’s dedicated his life to supporting them through mentorship. His goal: help 1 million entrepreneurs find success. After starting Two-Brain Business on Feb. 13, 2016, Chris built a multi-million-dollar mentorship practice with hundreds of clients all over the world. The businesses these clients own consistently grow faster and outperform their peers by a wide margin because of one-on-one guidance delivered by certified Two-Brain mentors. Chris owns several other businesses, including a gym, a fitness coaching practice and a media company. He’s the author of dozens of ebooks and four other books, including “Two-Brain Business”—the best-selling fitness business book of all time. His most recent book, “Founder, Farmer, Tinker, Thief” reached bestseller status on Amazon in six categories. Chris is a prolific blogger and sought-after speaker, both in-person and online. More About Chris Chris’s unbelievable work capacity almost sunk his gym business in 2008. Sitting on a park bench after getting up before 4 a.m. and working 13 hours straight as a personal trainer, Chris realized he wasn’t making enough to support his family or keep his business open. He was working hard, but he wasn’t doing the right things. Desperate, he borrowed money and made an all-or-nothing decision: He would hire a mentor. Through mentorship, Chris discovered that he didn’t have to “figure it out on his own,” and he used his investment to fix mistakes he had made and avoid countless others. Soon, his gym grew into an asset that provided for his family, and Chris blogged about the lessons he had learned. By 2012, Chris was mentoring other gym owners, and he had enough blogs to create his first book, “Two-Brain Business.” In 2015, he wrote “Two-Brain Business 2.0” and “Help First.” Twobrainbusiness.com was launched in 2016, and the practice quickly grew to serve hundreds of entrepreneurs located all around the globe. In 2019, Chris published “Founder, Farmer, Tinker, Thief,” which became an instant Amazon bestseller in multiple categories. As he worked with more mentors and grew his companies, Chris discovered his true superpower: the ability to break large, complicated problems down into a series of small, solvable issues. After more than 20 years of research and millions of dollars in investment, he used this superpower to create the Two-Brain Roadmap—a one-of-a-kind, data-backed, step-by-step progression to help entrepreneurs solve problems and find success fast. The Roadmap includes everything Chris learned over two decades in the fitness industry, as well as researched and tested strategies that stood up to Two-Brain’s rigorous evaluation process. Today, Chris leads a worldwide team of certified mentors who are helping him accomplish his vision of helping 1 million entrepreneurs find success. He lives in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, Canada, with his wife and two children. He enjoys cycling, flooding his backyard hockey rink and drinking a beer by the woodstove.
