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!
Loved reading all of the answers. I’ve been involved in athletics for as long as I can remember. My dad was a high school coach so I’ve struggled heel and toe with athletes for since I can remember. After competing and coaching at both the high school and collegiate level it was fortuitous that the ‘fitness industry’ was just emerging when I retired from coaching & teaching. It has grown leaps & bounds and I am thankful to have been a part of it for many years. Working with individual clients, groups, lecturing, writing articles and books and striving to maintain my own fitness have all been a labor of love!
