Entrepreneurs in the Health, Active Lifestyle and Outdoor ("HALO") sector sharing their stories


Episode #283: Bobby Verdun, CEO, Active Entities

Bobby founded Active Entities after a successful college and professional basketball and tennis coaching career. "Health clubs don't matter to people these days. Health matters to people!" he states firmly. "People will pay for quality and results. Out of this pandemic, we learned a lot about ourselves as an industry--a lot of our shortcomings. When you get grouped with casinos, it really tells you where you're at."

He shares his in-the-trenches experiences with independent "big box" operators, chats about why it's important to consider increasing prices, provides some tips for independent clubs who may feel they're "on an island," what clubs are doing now to get people in the door, and more!
