Check out what a few past attendees had to say

“The Two-Brain Summit helped my fitness business in many ways. I was able to meet so many amazing people who own/manage gyms just like mine. I listened to awesome speakers whose message really resonated with me. I was able to take away action items that I’m currently working on, still 7 months later. Last but not least, I gather connections with people who help me stay on top of the action items.”
Nate Boley
“The Summit will offer you the value of the tickets within the first hour of the event. The rest of the time is pure bonus that can take your gym(s) from good to great in one weekend of knowledge! The 2022 Summit helped me engage my management staff and get them on the same page and focused on the same vision. It’s been a tremendous game changer for my gyms. In 2023 I plan to bring most if not my entire staff!”
Chris Williams
“The Two-Brain Summit in Chicago changed more than my business, it changed my life. This event was the inception of a radical transformation where now I have the business of my dreams, a family I get to spend more time with, and an amazing financial future. The Two-Brain team goes above and beyond and curates the best in the world, and packs it in a couple days. If you’re hesitant to go. Don’t be, book it and transform your life.”
Derek Ward
“The Two-Brain Summit brought our staff together better than any event we have ran. Coming out of the summit, we sat down with each of our 8 coaches who joined us and did career roadmap sessions. This spawned three new programs in the gym, which generated over $30k in revenue for the year. The intangibles are what really made the weekend, though. During our annual planning, the first question our coaches asked is when we’re going to the summit, and it’s become our most-anticipated conference of the year. We can’t wait to come back, and this year there will be over 10 of us!”
Kayla Allen
