What's your name?
What business do you run?
Mike Ward Personal Training
What do you offer?
One to one personal training, small group training, online coaching and nutritional planning.
When did you start at Evans House?
What did you want to be when you grew up?
How did you get into running a fitness training business?
By mistake really haha. I was employed as graphic designer in a marketing company. At the same time I was helping train a local rugby team. So I decided to do a personal training course to build my knowledge. From there it took over! I loved it, so I wanted to learn more and keep learning. Eventually I took the leap and physical training took over full time. The business is still growing every year : )
What is your top tip for running a business?
Keep learning and work hard, but remember to find that balance between work and play. I took me a good few years to realise that your rest and personal time is just as important as the hard work you put into your business.
