Now, Steve Kamb is asking the same concern.
Kamb, 32, is the New York developer and Rebel leader of Nerd Fitness. Despite the fact that the online neighborhood speaks of being a disobedience (members chose the term to be aligned with the light side of the Force), Nerd Fitness has actually ended up being an empire. Near to 300,000 customers receive e-mails from nerdfitness.com, which gets nearly 1.3 million page views a month.
The Academy, a self-paced online fitness regimen produced by Kamb to be fashioned like a computer game, has more than 20,000 paid customers. Geek Fitness provides NF Yoga, a directed online course with Kamb and two other trainers. And later on this year, nearly 400 members will assemble in Georgia for the third version of Camp Nerd Fitness
