From “dumb jock” to “savvy business(wo)man”? Check out the article here: Wall Street Journal Article featuring Lacey Stone!

  1. Great article. To me, the idea of athletes turned trainers is great. The entire time I participated in college sports my coach constantly talked about “coach to coach”. So when he couldn’t be there we could coach each other.

  2. Personal trainer jobs can be great for professional athletes struggling to make ends meet after leaving their sports. What would you say the hourly rate is for personal trainers that work for larger corporate gyms? The gym has to take a cut, right?
