I’m not gonna lie to ya, I have said to myself a least a ten thousand times in the last six months “Should I have done this?”
The question I was asking myself over and over and over was “Heavyweights Training Center, Should I have done this?”.
You see opening a business is hard, it’s the hardest thing I have ever done. Going to school, that’s easy. Training my members and helping people, that’s fun. Opening a business and having the balls to say “Fu*k it let’s do it” is not an easy thing to do, not one bit.
My our new gym Heavyweights Training Center just opened up a few months ago and it was a big under taking for me and Danielle and a lot of our team. It was a VERY difficult decision to take on a big business, more bills, more staff, more headaches, more stress, more WORK. It was a huge step for us. And as I said above every day I would say to myself “Should I have done this?”
Well today I had a day where my reply was “FU*K Ya it was worth it and then some” and let me tell you why it is worth every bit of stress, work, pressure, and then some.
When I coach and see someone get a personal best, when they do something they didn’t think they could do it is a pretty damn good feeling.
When one of my members goes to his doctor after 2 months at my gym and his doctor says “Whatever you are doing keep doing it”, it’s a pretty damn good feeling.
When I see a female get her first pull up it’s a pretty damn good feeling.
When you get Reese peanut butter cups, chocolate, red wine & a Batman shirt from your clients it’s a pretty damn good feeling.
When I can e-mail a customer at the age of 15 and have him tell me he is taking pre workouts like 1mr and I can tell him not to take it and tell him what I think he should be doing and focusing on which is food, training and fish oil and he listens to me it’s a pretty damn good feeling.
When you get a bottle of Jack3d Daniels for Christmas it’s a pretty damn good feeling. (I don’t advise Jack3d & Jack Daniels together but it will be fun lol).
When I see 30 of my clients changing their physiques, their health, their LIFE better with our Rippedin42 program, it’s a pretty damn good feeling.
When I have a great night teaching, training and I look around and I realize I am living out my dream it’s a pretty damn good feeling.
I have a simple question for you.
If money didn’t matter in life what would you do?”
For me it would be doing exactly what I am doing right now. Teaching, educating, helping people, getting them stronger, fitter, happier, making someone’s life better.
That’s what I would do.
