The Kris Gethin Podcast

Sep 25, 2018

"The audience only sees one side, it’s up to you to tell the whole story."

This episode is coming to you from Dehli, India. Kris sits down with his friend and business partner Jag Chima, and fitness influencer and YouTuber Abhinav Mahajan, to talk about what it takes to be successful in the fitness space as an influencer.

Abhinav has a lot to share about his journey. He started out unsure of how to use YouTube and now he gets over 35 million views on his videos. Jag has a very unique perspective in that he not only mentored Abhinav early on in his journey, but has worked with many other fitness celebrities to increase and engage their following. 

Tune in to find out what they suggest you do if you are looking to be successful as a fitness influencer.
