On October 4th, 2014 we joined our partners Chris and Gidget Blunt and opened a gym that we called No Limits Fitness.
The gym name is a metaphor for both fitness and life.
You see, if you are truly living a life by design, there are no limits. Nothing can hold you back.
When you look back at my career in fitness I think that this gym has summed it all up.
Fitness should be fun. Fitness should be challenging. Fitness should have variety and intensity and a bit of competitive spirit to move you in the right direction.
No Limits Fitness has all that and more. This gym has been my greatest accomplishment as a fitness professional.
In October of 2018 Teresa started a meal prep and delivery business called The Fit Life Meals. This business has been wildly successful beyond anything we could have imaged.
Over the last 7 years I grown as a person. I have been building businesses, working on my relationship with Teresa, being a father and step father, and working on both developing and executing my mission.
As with the rest of my life (and probably your life too!) there have been challenges along the way and there are still challenges to this very day.
The great thing about growing as a person is that I am better at facing the challenges and I actually relish the opportunity to face down any and all challenge that comes my way.
The theme of my life is pretty similar to most people's lives.
There are ups and downs and highs and lows.
I recall with pride the days where I stood on top of the mountain. I also look back with sadness on the days when I was at the lowest of lows.
All of it is part of the process of life. This is my life and it has been a full one for me.
Now that you know my story of the first 48 years I want to share what the future holds for me.
Are you ready?
Here it is: more of the same.
I will continue to fight to live my mission, "To lead a life that can inspire anyone to embark, and continue on, a journey to live a fit life."
I will also continue to fight for my goals with my businesses and with athletic pursuits.
When the final curtain falls for all of us we will be judged not on what we have, but rather on what what we did and on who we were.
My only hope is that I inspired some of you to maximise YOUR time so that what you did and who you were is more important that what you have.
After all, there are no limits to how much better you can be.
