There’s no denying that the fitness and personal training industries have been among the hardest hit in the face of the Coronavirus outbreak.

An industry and profession that thrives on the physical space, the social restrictions in place have caused business owners in this industry to pivot hard and fast.

Gary Wagner and his business Recalibrate provide an interesting case study in this respect.

Gary’s business Recalibrate has always stood out from the crowd for his unique business model and his own personal charisma and in the face of this crisis, he has not only moved quickly to ensure the ongoing viability of his own business but has been at the forefront of leading change across the industry.

In our second episode of Pivot Point, Matthew Galea chats to Gary Wagner about his initial reaction to the COVID-19 outbreak, what’s happening at Recalibrate to ensure it and its clients continue to thrive and the challenges – and opportunities – ahead for his business and his industry.
