Skyler Tanner is the most featured guest to-date on Corporate Warrior, and for quite a number of good reasons: in addition to being a well-regarded exercise physiologist, an analytics professional, a world-class personal trainer, having given lectures and presentations in a variety of conferences and media platforms, and having been featured in mainstream outlets such as FOX and Prevention Magazine, Skyler is incredibly sharp and entertaining.

In this episode, Skyler goes into detail about how he started and scaled Smart Strength into the robust HIT establishment it is today, particularly the story of how he was able to more than double the amount of business it generates in just over a year’s time.
