Cory Gregory

From Coal Miner to Fitness Cover Millionaire

Another Ohio legend on The School of Greatness today!

Yes, they keep coming 🙂

I actually only met Cory Gregory a year ago but we’ve become real friends and he’s going to be a trainer for morning workouts at the Summit of Greatness in a couple weeks!

There are a lot of awesome things about Cory and what he’s built, both in his businesses and his fitness career, but one of the things I love about him is how down to earth he is.

His gym in Ohio is called Old School Gym if that tells you anything.

He was raised by generations of coal miners (and worked in one himself for a bit) and has huge respect for hard work and grinding it out.

You don’t need to look farther than his massive success both as a trainer, fitness model, and entrepreneur to see the results.

"Confidence is everything."  

Cory not only has been on the cover of 11 fitness magazines (and counting), he co-founded one of the fastest growing sport nutrition companies ever – and got Arnold Schwarzenegger to become a backer!

He is also a husband and father, an author, a podcaster, and a mentor to hundreds of guys who have worked out with him daily at 4 am.

Needless to say, I have a ton of respect for Cory and I’m sure you’ll get big value out of this interview in Episode 380.

"Activity on a day to day basis is one of the most therapeutic things."
