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 have always felt that fitness was as important as education. But that wasn’t the view of parents and teachers. I did a lot of coaching as a way to make extra money while going through college. When I graduated I realized that I could make a very good living coaching and teaching fitness. That those were real professions as much as being a doctor is a real profession. And I believed that fitness would eventually be proven to be more important than any scientific advancement in medicine. So, I decided to stay with what I loved to do. And to bring health and wellness to people before they were too far down the road of poor health to reap the benefits.
