Start-up Mentality to 100 Million Dollar Company

Randy Hetrick is a former Navy Seal who founded TRX Training & turned it into a 100-Million Dollar brand. We go deep on today’s episode on how the principles of being a Navy Seal helped fuel TRX’s success during the pandemic. Why he recently launched a spin-off fitness app called OUTFIT Training. Along with his fitness industry predictions and trends for the industry and what brings him the most joy & happiness these days.

In full disclosure, Randy is one of my closest friends and confidants, and I think you will hear that in the banter between us. Heck, we ended up talking family, fitness, business, and even politics. 

Specifically, this is what we cover in today’s episode:

  • The challenges TRX faced during Covid, what they did to capitalize on the opportunities Covid offered, and what is working well now.
  • The new OutFit Training, a mobile, outdoor group-fitness franchise that just launched but will be national soon.
  • Randy’s predictions on the future of fitness.
  • His feelings on the Afghanistan situation and how he would lead the country if he were in charge. 
  • Lessons learned as a Navy Seal that carry over in life now.
  • Randy goes deep on what he does now regularly to have more clarity.
  • Randy shares the hardest thing he does.
  • What brings Randy the most joy and happiness these days.
