Each one of us has a story of how we got into the fitness industry.
For me, my inspiration was venturing into another field that I knew nothing about (other than enjoying the benefits of a gym membership AND having a great personal trainer) and to see what I could create for it (the gym software).
I am curious to find out what inspired you.
Does your inspiration come from another person in the field?
A loved one who benefits from your knowledge and expertise?
A general innate desire to help others?
I hope everyone is having a great week. I look forward to your responses and, always, learning more!
I played sports in school, football, track and field, wrestling and powerlifting.
Graduated high school and went to work in the oil & gas industry. Very rough rugged and tough work along side other men of the same caliber in the oil field.
Some bad habits started…smoking-alcohol and soon became out of shape.
My sister talked me into going to a small gym with her and I found just how out of shape I was.
Changing my habits…I was soon hooked working out again and within a year was in my fisrt bodybuilding competition.
Left the oil & gas industry and crossed over into the health and fitness industry full time.
Received the first PT certification from IDEA when they had PT certifications,
and began my PT business and started two retail/distribution businesses soon therafter.
So…”a thank you” to my sister who had a part in changing my bad habits and my career.
