RETRO FITNESS BOSS BIO – ERIC CASABURI, RETRO FITNESS

Why the Boss wants to go undercover:
Eric Casaburi started Retro Fitness in a time when people are looking for a cheap, but high quality gym workout. The company has grown to over 90 locations and is expanding at a great rate. Eric's passion for his brand is immense; he wants everyone to love him and the company. Eric wants to go undercover to see if the systems he has put in place are working and to discover what improvements need to be made.

Jobs he will do undercover:
Sales – Getting people to join the gym is the most crucial part of making Retro Fitness a successful company. Sales associates are tasked with giving tours and closing deals. Will the boss be able to stay in character when he's faced with a failed sales attempt?

Front Desk Associate – Being the first employee that a member sees makes the Front Desk Associate a very important role in the company. Another duty of this position is to manage the juice bar which is a crucial part of the Retro Fitness revenue. Eric genuinely cares about what is being produced for each and every member. What will happen when the boss is faced with his worst nightmare?

General Manager – General Managers are an important part of the Retro Fitness family; they are tasked with keeping the gym running smoothly. How will the boss react when he discovers a hiccup with the phone systems? And how will he feel when he sees an employee with the same pain he dealt with in the past?
