Steve De La Torre – Show Notes

How did you get involved with the fitness industry?

When Steve was 18, he got his first job at a big box gym. Steve’s goal was to make enough money to put himself through university. He worked at the front counter and one day saw a posting at the gym for a personal trainer certification course.

He was an athlete already, and saw the opportunity to train people as a way to make double what he did at the front desk, which would help pay for school.

“I learned really quickly that it was really all about personality matching. It had nothing to do with the workout; it’s just about personalities.”

Steve advanced in his career, but got burned out pretty fast.

“That’s when I really started to educate myself and learn more about how to get better results, how to motivate and learn about the business side.”

Steve no longer works with clients, and he works with fitness professionals on the business end of things.

What do you enjoy the most about what you are doing at this point in your career?

Steve has always been interested in marketing, even from when he was younger.

“What I enjoy most is taking a trainer, who is a fantastic trainer, who is great at what they do, but just doesn’t have the great presence and doesn’t have that branding ‘wow’.”

What are the most common mistakes that you see clients making?

In Steve’s experience, he finds trainers stop and give up on ventures or methods before they have a chance to see the success from it.

“What I would say is the biggest mistake that I see most trainers making is that they stop right before they’re about to hit that stride.”

What is your biggest challenge you have with your business?

Steve says one of the challenges he has had is not to get distracted. When you get distracted you under deliver.

“That for me has been a huge learning lesson from trying to do too many things from being distracted to promising certain things and end up not delivering.”

What helps you stay on the cutting edge?

Steve says things change in the industry quickly these days, but what always stays fresh is great content.

How do you stay on the cutting edge?

Steve says things change in the industry quickly these days, but what always stays fresh is great content.

What are the books that have impacted you the most?

“The 4-Hour Work Week” by Tim Ferriss,
“The Go-Giver” by Bob Burg and John David Mann and
“The 10X Rule” by Grant Cardone have been the books that have impacted Steve the most.

Who is your ideal client?

Steve says he always loves the underdog, because he has considered himself to be an underdog.
“The reason why I love the underdog is because there is so much potential, if just given the right chance.”
