My weakness: I want to help everyone be healthier. I sometimes get frustrated when people don’t put my advice or help to use.
What keeps me motivated: helping our members make progress toward their goals. I also love our members so much that motivation comes easy. It’s like being with your best friends every day.
Working Out Sucks, but: not being capable of working out sucks more!
I feel my best when: I have treated myself to a challenging workout, eaten the right foods and assisted people in reaching their goals of better health and fitness.
If I could tell the world one thing about exercise and fitness it would be: don’t take the ability to exercise for granted. There are a lot of people that are incapable of working out due to physical or mental limitations. The best way to be healthy, stay young and have a better outlook on life is through fitness.
The hardest thing I have ever had to overcome in my life: has been making my business successful. My club is doing okay, but taking the extra steps to elevate it from okay to wonderful has been a challenge. We all know it’s easy to settle for average. I work hard to rise above average in my professional life, my health and fitness life and my family life. I have to push myself to give that extra little bit each day, but when I do, I get a great sense of accomplishment knowing I have moved beyond my comfort zone.
