The Bachelorette winner Shawn Booth made an exciting announcement on his Instagram today. He's opening a new gym. The Instagram photo shows him and two others with power and demolition tools, with building debris in the background. In the caption, Booth explained that the gym used to belong to a friend and that he's taking it over. He promises "an all star team of trainers."
Booth won his season of The Bachelorette, with Kaityln Bristowe. He works as a personal trainer, which explains his dream to open his own gym.
"It's been a blessing and a curse... Trying to take on clients is difficult, because there are a lot of people who will reach out who just want to train with me once or twice - and they just come there and want to take a selfie," Booth told Men's Health. Hopefully, with the opening of the new gym, Booth can attract more serious clients.
In addition to opening a new gym soon, Booth has established a successful program called Healthy Meal Plans by Shawn Booth. Those who enroll receive custom meal plans, tips, and more.
Booth also said that he's planning on focusing on becoming a group instructor rather than working as a private instructor. And it's no wonder. His classes are widely popular, and spaces sell out quickly.
Undoubtedly, Booth's appearance on The Bachelorette helped accelerate his personal fitness career. But that's not to say that being on the show was easy for him.
