Audio-Driven Workouts with Colin McIntosh

It’s tough to come up with and follow exercise routines by yourself. YouTube and Instagram videos aren’t good solutions. Listen to Colin McIntosh describe a business idea to create a workout-centered podcast platform. If you like the show, please leave a review on Apple Podcasts!


  • This idea is so exciting because it’s a platform that expands both sides of a marketplace; it makes it easier for fitness instructors to get their content out, and easier for people to work out remotely
  • Don’t forget about the incredible power of puns in branding and marketing.

Action Steps:

  1. Create a business overview/plan including the product, points of differentiation, value proposition, etc...
  2. Create a financial model with some basic assumptions to ensure that the idea will be profitable
  3. Validate product/market fit (before spending serious money or seeking investment dollars)
  4. Create a basic landing page with the value proposition and run Facebook ads to it
  5. Use the data collected from ads to inform and iterate on the financial model
