Episode #3: All the Hurdles of Launching Your First Space, with Alex Perrin

 

Alex Perrin is the co-founder and CEO of Cut Seven, a sports conditioning studio in Washington, DC. Alex opened the doors to Cut Seven in early 2017, and it has quickly become known as one of the toughest workouts in the city.

Alex is trying to strip the fitness industry of its "clicky" vibe and replace it with team camaraderie. A weight loss success story herself, Alex explains how building a team first was how she built her business. And she and husband Chris needed that team through all the stumbling blocks Cut Seven hit before opening its doors.
