Ever had one of those days where juggling even a handful of fitness classes feels like a whirlwind? 

Oh, trust me, I've been there, and I've got the coffee stains on my shirt to prove it!

But imagine, just for a second, being the driving force behind 340 fitness studios. (Mind-blowing, right?)

In EPISODE 575, we’re entering the world of Andrea Bell, the wonder woman who brought Anytime Fitness to Asia. 

And no, that's not a typo – we're talking about 340 locations!

Here’s what we’re chatting about:

  • The Ownership Tango: Owning 30% of those fitness hubs? Yep, it’s a tale with twists.
  • US vs. Asia – Fitness Showdown: Different continents, contrasting cultures. 

Intrigued? I thought you might be. 

Dive deep with me into EPISODE 575 and let's uncover these stories together with a dash of excitement and a sprinkle of curiosity.
