Here are the first couple questions of Daries interview to give you a taste:
Bleu Magazine: How did you get involved with fitness?
Daries Lindsay: I started getting involved with fitness around three years ago. But, I started taking it more seriously in 2016. I wanted to be a teacher but it wasn’t my true passion. I just wanted to better myself in this field. I just started digging deep within and started figuring out things that I wanted to change about myself. It was definitely the way to go because I wanted to be in shape. I wanted to inform others about being in shape. It was a plus for me and I was just locked in this field. I didn’t look back at all.
How did you start building up your clientele?
I chose a different route, I was a personal trainer for Equinox but I wasn’t fond of the staff members. I was ready to venture out on my own and began teaching fitness at boot camps and health clubs. And that’s how I started building up my clientele. So, it’s a combination of referrals and interacting with people.
