OUR COACHES

Our personal trainers will push you to new limits that your mind and body didn't know your could reach. We'll create customized plans to help you surpass your health goals. But most importantly, we do it all while building a relationship with you. We get to know you as a person, with hopes and aspirations for your body and life. It's this genuine relationship with our clients that allows us to push you further and that sets us apart from other trainers.

Chase founded Ult Fit as a new type of training studio. Chase follows the 2mm Rule. If you make a 2 millimeter shift, you'll completely change your trajectory. Small movements have massive results. Squat 2mm deeper. Run 2mm further. You'll end up at a new destination faster and stronger. Make the 2mm shift to show up at Ult Fit, and your life will never be the same.

Ryan Hanlon

We reserve Jenna for only the most committed clients. Her intense training programs show results so fast and so long-lasting that she's received the nickname, "The Miracle Worker." She lives and breathes physical activity as a professional volleyball player, yoga instructor, dance teacher, marathon runner, and of course an Ult Fit personal trainer.

Ronnie Gordon

Martin's known for his "one more" lie. He believes in pushing his clients to do one, two, or five more reps than they think is possible, because that's where all the growth happens. Martin is professionally trained in basketball and rugby, and he loves working with athletes and clients who want to train for endurance and performance. Plus, you'll love Martin's puns.

Mindset/Business Coaching for Filmmakers & Videographers 

Are you working a ton of hours without much profit to show for it? Do you feel stuck and unsure how to grow? Is your freelance business bursting at the seems but you feel afraid to take it to the next level? I feel you. I’ve been in your shoes. I can help. The image below is the process I go through with my clients to help them achieve breakthroughs in their life!

I was so sick of all the Courses, Books, & Trainings out there where you are essentially left to figure it all out on your own. The other thing I was finding is that there are a ton of coaches out there who have NO UNDERSTAND of film & video. So I created what I wish I could find and I’m here to help filmmakers & videographers to:  

Stop feeling Overwhelmed, Confused, Stuck, & Unclear!  

Let me help you:  

  • Start getting Paid More! 
  • Have more Fun!
  • Have more Freedom!
  • Have more Confidence!
  • Have MORE Clarity about the right actions to take for YOU! 
  • No more figure it out on your own, GET PERSONAL GUIDANCE!  


A lot of coaches give you prescriptions that work for themselves but not the you…I only care about what’s right for YOU! Anything is Possible…It’s just a matter of having the right personal guidance, believing, and taking action or as I like to say M.I.A. (Massive Imperfect Action).

What If YOU Could Make MORE Money with LESS Stress? 

Give Me Just 30 Days & I'll Show YOU How!

Does This Sound Like You?

Right now, you don't know where to begin...

  • You don't know where to go find more clients...
  • You don't know how to convince people to pay you for your work...
  • You don't know what you should be charging...
  • You either have feast or famine in your business...
  • Sometimes you get to work on AWESOME projects but most times you don't...
  • You are charging hourly for your work but there is a ceiling to what you can charge... 


or you migh be further along in your career and now...

  • You have built a "prison" where you have no FREEDOM!
  • You are super stressed, overwhelmed, and it's ruining relationships!
  • You are doing everything yourself to run your business & it's draining YOU!
  • You want to get help but you can't afford it!
  • You are afraid to outsource things because no one will do it better than YOU!


Business can be lonely and finding someone who get's you and understand what your going through can be just what is needed to accelerate your business & lift a weight off your shoulders!

This Was Me Just 10 Years Ago...

I was struggling just like you to figure out how to charge more than $500 for a project that I would spend weeks on...

I started to make descent money but I was working 24/7. I was VERY distracted doing every type of project that came my way from dance recitals, graduations, church services, music videos, film transfers to DVD, weddings, commercials, even photoshop jobs. At one point in time I was over 9 months behind delivering peoples wedding videos & I was so stressed I didn't even want to answer the phone or go out to the movies because I thought a bride or her family would see me and chew me out for not delivering their wedding videos yet...

In 2010 I literally almost quit because I was so fed up and realized that the life I was living was NOT the life I thought I would have when I started my business back in 2006.

I KNEW something needed to change or I was DONE!

I started taking risks...because I had nothing to lose. Than I made a couple big shifts in my business & everything CLICKED! I finally unlocked the key to more fun, more freedom, more money, better clients, and a business that I LOVED!


My Life Radically Changed


After having my breakthrough in 2011, over the next 24 months my company went from never billing more than $160,000 in a year for the first 5 years to billing almost $275,000 in 2011 to almost $400,000 in 2012. Within in months of gaining massive CLARITY & CONFIDENCE in my life I started working with people (pictured below) like Tim Ferriss, Tony Robbins, Richard Branson (been to his private necker island 4 times), Lewis Howes, Pat Flynn, Jayson Gaignard, and many others. 

It wasn't ALL rainbows & butterfly though...there have been MANY up & downs through the years that I have so many patterns I've been able to see. Also navigating through multiple partnerships, hiring employees & freelancers has taught me so much about the power of getting help in areas that you are WEAK! Alignment in business is VERY important to SUCCESS. Finding it can be the hard part if you are doing it alone...



and if you are curious to see a video I did for one of the above people, my favorite video to share is the one I did for Tony Robbins 6 Day (15 hours a day) Date with Destiny Event. It was an intense project we filmed with 3 people & and over 60 hours of footage to edit.


And here's the good news for you...

After years of being one of the most saught after videographers in the country, I started getting asked over and over by other videographers how I was doing what I was doing.

I started realizing just how many videographers are struggling to build the business they want.

So I started helping a couple of them 1 on 1....giving them my blueprint for quickly creating a video business that they Ioved...and would give them an amazing lifestyle.

After helping just a handful of people at first, almost every single one doubled or tripled their business within 12 to 18 months...and dramatically lowered their stress level, and started to love their business instead of hate it.

This has now become my PASSION: to help videographers like you quickly build a business that you love.

And I do this through one simple method: my JumpStarter Elite Program™


It's Kinda Like A "Coach In Your Pocket"

My JumpSarter Elite Program™ is everything I needed when I got started in the video business. Once you're in the program, you will get direct access to me right from your cell phone anytime you need me.

I will be right there to guide you...making sure you avoid all the major pitfalls I fell into.

You'll benefit from the exact system I used to create an insanely profitable video business that I LOVED, without working 80 hour weeks in the process.

Listen, here's the truth: if you want to finally have a video business that is both insanely profitable AND doesn't feel like a "job"...you only have 2 options:

1. You can figure it out as you go. (this will most likely take 5-10 years, just like it did for me...and cost a ton of money you don't have to spend)

2. You can take a MASSIVE shortcut a learn from someone who's already done what you're trying to do.

Onbviously, my suggestion for you is Option #2. I've seen so many lives transformed by my simle process, and I know how much time and money it's going to save you in the long run.


So ask yourself this...

  • How would your business change if you had support daily from someone, who has been in the same exact place as you, to bounce ideas off of?  


  • How would daily check-ins with a business/mindset strategist change your business? 

 

  • What if you could "pick the brain" of someone who has grossed over 2 Million Dollars in video business, I don' t say that to impress but rather to impress upon you that ANYTHING is possible! 


  • Someone who has grown a video production company living in small town of around 26,000 people, didn't go to college, had tons of people tell him he wouldn't succeed, shooting EVERYTHING from dance recitals, graduations, funerals, church services, commercials, music videos, weddings, sports etc...


  • Get the support from someone who was able to find the FOCUS, CLARITY, and CONFIDENCE which allowed me to travel the world shooting over 300 wedding specializing in Same Day Edits and after that reaching the "unreachable" and getting to film for Tim Ferriss, Tony Robbins, Richard Branson, Josh Shipp, Jayson Gaignard, Pat Flynn, Social Media Marketing World and SO MANY Others?  


  • How would that type of direct access change your business?

Just Imagine...

  • On a Monday you get an e-mail from a not so happy client and you don't know how to deal with it! Frustrated, you reach out and get help on how to respond to the client so everyone is happy. 


  • Or you just had an INSANELY juicy idea (possible shiny object moment) for a new business on a Tuesday afternoon and need to run it by someone who won't crush your dreams, you reach out and get a plan of how to proceed forward.


  • Or maybe on a Thursday morning you had the 10th potential client in a row not book you and you just need to figure what you might be doing wrong, you reach out & get a pep talk, & get action-items moving forward make your mindset rock solid. 


  • Or on a Friday afternoon you're planning the next week's goals and you need a strategic focus to help you meet your goals, you reach out and you an entire reverse engineered response on goal-setting.  

What makes ALL the difference?

There’s one word I hear again and again from my clients:  

CLARITY 

  • Clarity will give you less stress.
  • Clarity will give you more time.
  • Clarity will give you better clients.
  • Clarity will give you greater confidence.


Imagine knowing with certainty the thing you’re working on is going to bring more of the right clients

How great would it be to feel Confident?  

Feel confident you’re working on the right thing and not wasting time.  

  • What is uncertainty costing you in time?
  • What is uncertainty costing you in money?
  • What is uncertainty costing you in missed opportunities?
  • What is confidence worth to you? 

 

All of your energy can go into taking M.I.A. (Massive Imperfect Action) and making progress.

Hear what clients are saying about the IMPACT my coaching has had on them!

"I can't believe I almost passed up on this opportunity... This is one of the BEST decisions I've ever made!"


I know most videographers & filmmakers have either NOT experienced coaching before or have potentially NOT had a good experience with a coach. So you are luck...While I'm currently building this I'm SO CONFIDENT that I can help YOU. That I'm willing to take on ALL the risk. You can try out "Coach in Your Pocket" for 30 days with no credit card. 

I call this LOVE it or LEAVE it. If you LOVE it, than it's $1,000 for the year or $100 a month. If you don't LOVE it than you LEAVE it and there is no hard feelings. My GOAL is that I will be able to DELIVER so much VALUE in those first 30 days that I will pay for myself.

I BELIEVE that there are a lot of nuances in business & answers to questions aren't always black & white.  

People really need the context (IT REALLY MATTERS) of YOUR current situation to give you the BEST advice.  

So if you are worried you won't know what to ask me to get the BEST advice/answers out of me. Don't worry...  

I will provide you with over 50 different prompts like these to ask me:

1. Should I hire someone?  

2. How should I package my services?  

3. How should I price my services?  

4. Should I have contracts?  

5. Should I have proposals?  

6. Should I quit my job?  

8. How to charge for traveling jobs?  

9. How do I deal with an upset client? 

10. What niche should I be in?

I will dig into your EXACT situation and give you personalized feedback that will be UNIQUE to YOU. 

There are over 40 more like the above that I provide

PLUS anything that you want to ask. If I don't have the answer, I most likely KNOW someone who does...

"Coach in YOUR Pocket" 

  • Not just another Course! 
  • Not your typical Coaching Service! 
  • Not another NON Video Professional "Coach" telling you what to do!
  • Not another Group Coaching Program where you wait in a queue to get your questions answered! 


THIS is SUPPORT when you NEED it most. 

NOT enough time in your schedule for "normal" COACHING...not an issue here...

I GET it showing up to Scheduled 60-90 min Calls anywhere between 1-4x a month is DIFFICULT. That's not a problem with "Coach in YOUR Pocket" because there are no scheduled calls. It's all done going back & forth in audio messages via a special app. This is SUPER EFFECTIVE & EFFICIENT as you send messages at anytime and listen back to the responses multiple times!

This isn't some cookie cutter one size fits all approach. It's PERSONLIZED to YOU! 

You will get Support & Guidance on a "Daily" basis from someone who has been self employed and in the video business generating 6 figures for over 13 years & YOU will have NO NEED to schedule calls to get this support. Which means a quick question you need help with won't have to wait two weeks and take 90 minutes on a call to get answered. You send over your question and receive an in depth response that will be sure to keep you moving forward with CONFIDENCE! Read on to learn more!!!!

Speaking & Workshops  

 Since the mid-2000’s I have been building my career as a creative professional. From mom and pop shops to Netflix, Oprah, Tony Robbins, Richard Branson, Tim Ferriss, the Number ONE Doubles Players in Tennis The Brian Brothers, I have worked with a full gamut of clients. I love to share my good, bad and ugly experiences from growing my video production company in hopes that I can inspire young creatives, struggling entrepreneurs and successful business leaders looking to take things to the next level  

 With a “video/business” degree from the school of hard knocks, I grew my video production company from basement freelancer to multiple six figures employing multiple people and traveling the world filming celebrities, top athletes, and anyone in between. Along the way I gathered nugget after nugget of hard earned wisdom from both the good and bad experiences. I find great joy in sharing my knowledge and experiences with creative students, freelancers and successful entrepreneurs in an effort to help people learn things “the easy way” through lessons taught by another.  

 I am passionate about people having CLARITY and I have cracked the CLARITY code for creatives/entrepreneurs and I am ready to share. My lectures are filled with candid stories of my successes and failures, intermingled with plenty of humor to help inspire, motivate and grow the audience.  

I have been privileged to speak at venues around the world as well as numerous universities and corporate events.  

Some examples of past talks include:  

Burn Your Gear (lessons learned in the trenches of the video industry).  

People Skills Matter (a detailed guide to having the right people/communication to get work & succeed in this highly competitive market).  

How to Grow Your Production Business without Losing your Money or your Mind (guidance and direction for freelancers and production companies looking to streamline/simplify their business).  

The Wizard not the Wand (what creatives need in place in addition to their “tech” to land them their next great opportunity).  

Should I Bite the Bullet (should one go from employee to full-time freelancer).  

I am willing to speak on whatever topic fits your venue. Drop me a line. Let’s brainstorm a great topic will be for your next event!

ABOUT GEBBS!

I was so sick of all the Courses, Books, & Trainings out there where you are essentially left to figure it all out on your own. The other thing I was finding is that there are a ton of coaches out there who have NO UNDERSTANDING of film & video. So I created what I wish I could find and I’m here to help filmmakers & videographers to:  

Stop feeling Overwhelmed, Confused, Stuck, & Unclear!

Let me help you:

  • Start getting Paid More! 
  • Have more Fun!
  • Have more Freedom!
  • Have more Confidence!
  • Have MORE Clarity about the right actions to take for YOU! 
  • No more figure it out on your own, GET PERSONAL GUIDANCE!


A lot of coaches give you prescriptions that work for themselves but not for you…I only care about what’s right for YOU! Anything is Possible…It’s just a matter of having the right personal guidance, believing, and taking action or as I like to say M.I.A. (Massive Imperfect Action).  

Let me tell you my story. The oh so wonderful (sarcastic voice..I don’t love doing this per se…but it’s necessary) part where I “have” to brag on myself so you know what I’ve done & how I can help!  

I graduated high school & I decided to not go to college so instead I started my video production company. I’ve generated over 6 figures a year since 2008. I’ve shot over 300 weddings all over the world becoming known for something called the Same Day Edit. My passion & drive in this industry set everything in motion for me. Which led to some seemingly impossible feats..  

One of those seemingly impossible feats I’ve been able to achieve is working for some for some of the most influential people on the planet such author of the 4 Hour Work Week Tim Ferriss, Pat Flynn, Ben Newman, Jayson Gaignard, Derrick Halpern, Sir Richard Branson (been to his private island “Necker Island” 4 times), and Tony Robbins. Below is one of my favorite videos we did for Tony which was for his Date with Destiny event! I don’t say all this to impress you but rather to impress upon you that Anything is Possible. I still live in a town of 26,000 people in the midwest.  

To achieve the “impossible” one HUGE piece of advice I can give is to know that when you are considering reaching out to someone or going for your Dream is that “The worst thing that’s going to happen is you get a NO but you get a NO if you don’t ask or don’t try but at least if you ask or try you have the OPPORTUNITY for something good to happen” Never forget that and Never Give Up on your Dreams!! Allow me to help YOU achieve YOUR Dreams!
