On this episode of the Firepreneurs Podcast, we interview a fellow Firepreneur, Chris Estridge. Chris is the owner of Edge Fitness & Strength. In addition to owning a gym, he is also a full time firefighter at Indianapolis Fire Department.
Chris owned Edge Fitness & Strength going into the fire service. Do when he started the grueling 30 week Fire Academy he relied on systems, processes and good people to keep his gym running smoothly.
We unpack some of those difficulties of running a gym while going through a Fire Academy Monday-Friday; we also unpack what motivated him to own a gym and what motivated him to become a firefighter after having already taken the Entrepreneurial leap. Aside from the tough road of being a Firepreneur, Chris has faced tremendous adversity. He graciously shares those stories, what inspired him during the tough times, and what continues to drive him to this day. There’s something for everyone in this episode.
