“We are doing it to protect the brand and also to ensure we are only working with those who are hungry to get better,” Phelan wrote. “Throughout my 10-plus years in the fitness industry, my favorite part is to help those who want to be helped. If you come with a great attitude and an eagerness to get better each day, then let’s get to work!”
