My wife and I have a cheesy tradition on our anniversary. We go to a restaurant called, “The Melting Pot” and we dip bread and fruit in gobs of cheese fondue, followed by more fondue, followed by a dessert, followed by a sugar coma. Great times.
But the cheesy part was actually my idea. At dinner, we exchange a one-page letter reflecting on the previous year. Then, once we get home, we look over all the letters we’ve exchanged. Since we started doing this in 2004 when we dated, this will be our ninth letter to each other.
This one will be huge.
You see, this time last year, I was struggling while managing a gym, handling my bootcamps as well as balancing my one-on-one clients and small groups.
But more importantly, my wife was teaching math in middle school while my son, Champ, was in daycare.
But we both wanted something more. We wanted my wife to be a stay-at-home Mom, but I knew I couldn’t do it doing what I was doing.
I loved what I did and I certainly enjoyed training people, but I felt that there was more to it and I wasn’t making as big of an impact as I could.
I was a trainer who had lost 105 lbs and I knew I could connect with so many people who are struggling to lose weight, but I didn’t have an avenue.
One click changed that AND my life.
I became a part of something bigger and bolder, helping 1,000,000 people transform their lives. I jumped in head first and it has truly changed my life.
Because of the client attraction tools we receive each month from Craig, I grew my summer bootcamps from 5 people to 20 in my 6 am class (yes, during the summer) in just a matter of a few weeks.
Later that summer, I had a series of articles posted on Craig Ballantyne’s site (one of the many perks you get as a TT trainer) and due to the response I was inspired to put together my infamous Workout Finishers program.
In fact, those articles were what “put me on the map”. In September of 2011, I had a non-existent online business and my mission of never, EVER letting you get bored of your workouts was only shared with my clients at my gym.
Because of that one click, my message has gotten to the masses, but more importantly, my wife is now a stay-at-home Mom.
I was the fourth certified TT Trainer and I’ve been TT certified since the spring of 2011. I still remember clicking and becoming a part of the 1 million mission. My life hasn’t been the same since.
I challenge you to become a part of something bigger and bolder. There’s nothing like it and you’ll get everything you need to design a career on your own terms.
Imagine waking up and being excited to start your day like I am.
Maybe you’re looking to triple your bootcamp memberships like my friend and certified TT Trainer Brian Kalakay did in just a matter of weeks, all while becoming known for his online program, TT Bootcamp Games.
Or perhaps you’re just struggling on what to do with your life as a coach. You want to make a difference, but you just don’t have the avenue to do so.
This is more than a certification. That’s why my mentor and coach Craig Ballantyne calls it a mission.
I hope you join me,
