My Trainer Says is my definition of executing on an idea.I first came up with My Trainer Says when I was a self employed personal trainer in 2010. Like many first impressions of an idea, I thought it was brilliant. After researching this plan, I soon discovered that the margins of obtaining a reasonable ROI and the endless competition of other t-shirts companies would be a monumental challenge. Nevertheless, I knew that I was onto something with just the concept. I created a few t-shirts and they were a hit with my own clients and fellow trainers. The next six months, I struggled in attempting to make this a viable business opportunity and just wasn’t getting anywhere. Personally, I was not in a good place financially to continue to give it a proper go and I decided it was best to give it up.
Years later, I still had My Trainer Says in my head and a sense of regret in giving up on one of the only good ideas that I’ve ever had. In 2016, I decided that I will not let this haunt me anymore and started to take action. I spent around three months of tireless research, multiple business plans, and tested dozens of t-shirt fulfillment processes. (I even turned my basement/man cave into a t-shirt screen shop)
I am very excited to finally turn this idea into a business. Eventually, My Trainer Says will be much more than a T-Shirt company, but I’m excited to hear anybody’s thought on the product and the website I currently have. Please let me your thoughts in the comments below and/or express them on social media.
