Results from the Definitive Referral Survey of Fitness Businesses

This is the page where I'll be posting the results from the referral survey as soon as we've reached statistical validity. Which means at least 200 survey responders.

I'll also be posting my key take-aways and recommendations based on the data obtained by the referral survey.

And as more results come in over time, I'll continue to update this post to keep it relevant and useful.

So please tell your fitness professional friends to participate in the Definitive Referral Survey for Fitness Businesses.

No opt-in is required. It's anonymous. And it's free.

Thank you!
