Like many strength coaches, weight training slowly starts to integrate by our high school years. Taking that one step further, Chris Tutela began his career at the young age of 18 at Iron Athletes gym ran by his cousin John Alvino. You could say he was meant for this career.
But, like many of us who pursue strength & fitness as a career, the road is rarely straight. There are many twists and turns that can either push you forward towards success or completely derail you from the path.

Through his years of failing and getting back up, Chris breaks down what he did to take his business from 3 clients and struggling to make it, to over 60 members with a thriving gym and a kick-ass culture.
