Mac Dodds and his wife, Tina, started their business, Good Life Fitness, “to help people put their intentions into action by increasing awareness of and supporting the practice of healthy behaviors until they become a way of life.” They promote a healthy and fitness lifestyle by focusing on education, demonstration, and involvement.
Good Life Fitness is about more than just training. The staff guides hikes, organizes cooking demonstrations and potlucks and offers free education. Mac and Tina also support the homeless in their community by putting together packages of essential toiletries for them.
Mac encourages other fitness professionals to “figure out what kind of leader you really want to be and what aspects and areas of fitness energize you the most--then go for it.” One of his favorite inspirational quotes is from Les Brown: “Life has no limitations except the ones you make.” He uses this philosophy in his own life and shares it with clients. He and his wife want to help their clients to see that “there are no failures, only opportunities to discover their best path.”
