Monday Mindset: When Things Don’t Go As Planned! 👍

I received this story with a great lesson from my friend Randy recently and wanted to share to get your mind right this Monday..

The Chinese Farmer 

Once upon a time, there was a Chinese farmer whose horse ran away. 🧑‍🌾

That evening, all of his neighbors came around to commiserate.

They said, “We are so sorry to hear your horse has run away. This is most unfortunate.” 🐎 

The farmer said, “Maybe.”

The next day the horse came back bringing 7 wild horses with it, and in the evening everybody came back and said, 

”Oh, isn’t that lucky? What a great turn of events. You now have 8 horses!” 

The farmer again said, “Maybe.”

The following day his son tried to break one of the horses, and while riding it, he was thrown and broke his leg.

The neighbors then said, “Oh dear, that’s too bad ” and the farmer responded, “Maybe.”

The next day the conscription officers came around to take his son. 

As in that time, they conscripted people into the army and they rejected his son because he had a broken leg. 

Again all the neighbors came around and said, “Isn’t that great!” 

Again, he said, “Maybe.”

The morale of the story?

The whole process of life and fitness is an integrated process of immense complexity, and it’s nearly impossible to tell whether anything that happens in it is good or bad — because you never know what will be the consequence of misfortune; or, you never know what will be the consequences of good fortune. 💪

The most important thing to do is have faith and a positive perspective that it will all work out for your good! All while keep taking action toward your health & fitness goals every day to make your life better! 💯

Make it a great week!

Monday Mindset: 3 Nashville Takeaways.. 1024 768 Bryce Henson

Monday Mindset: 3 Nashville Takeaways..

Happy Monday!

Last week I returned from delivering a week-long training in Nashville Tennessee to nearly 300 attendees.🙌

The group was made up of owners, leaders, and coaches all wanting to get even better in the service of their clients, teammates, and community.⚡️

While the days were action-packed full of incredible teaching and takeaways. Here are a few that really resonated with me that will help you on your journey.👇

  • Proximity is power. When you gain more proximity to people doing well in life & with their fitness, it raises your productivity & fitness thermostat. Just as you tell your children, pick your friends wisely for the exact same reason. As when you put yourself in a room with other fit people, you will become the next fit person!
  • Growth Mindset. You are either growing or dying. That’s a tough truth but a law of nature. What we have at Fit Body is really a personal growth program packaged within a fitness & nutrition service offering. Choose growth and your life will prosper. 
  • Knowledge is only potential power. While we learned, shared, and taught some amazing strategies to drive even better fitness results for our clients. My parting message was that the only true way to unlock this learning is taking action. While both are very important, action and implementation always trump knowledge collection. This is true for you with regard to your health and fitness. You know this inherently, but do you do? That’s the power of our fitness program which creates action and why hiring a coach is extremely productive. 

I trust these takeaways will help you on your health and fitness journey! If so, please share it with someone in need!

Make it a great week!👊

Monday Mindset: The true value of your fitness 1024 768 Bryce Henson

Monday Mindset: The true value of your fitness

Happy Monday! 🙌

I am very excited to be home after an action-packed trip to Nashville delivering the Fit Body Elite Training workshop for our owners and coaches in the brand. 🤗

I will share some good takeaways from the trip next week.

The best part of returning? 

My wife Tatiana picked me up from LAX, with my 2 moms for the first time!

Donna whom you know as my birth mom and Cristina my Brazilian mom, who is the birth mom of Tatiana!

In fact, Saturday was the first time they had met after 12 years of Tatiana and I being together. 🥳

They both were extremely excited as you would imagine.

And to further prepare, Cristina has been taking some English lessons in anticipation of meeting Donna so that can communicate more directly. 💥

Or at least the very basics.

And I supposed their children will bridge the rest of the translation gap.

Morale of today’s story? 

Your Health & Fitness is important. But not for fitness’s sake alone. 

Rather, fitness gives you a baseline foundation to live a better quality of life. 

To be with your family. ❤️

To travel the world and to spend time with your loved ones.

That’s what truly matters in life and the true value of fitness. 

So yes, it’s important you value fitness.

But it’s most important to never forget the true gift it gives which is better quality time with your loved ones…

Make it a great week! 💪

Monday Mindset: You never know when you will need your fitness.. 150 150 Bryce Henson

Monday Mindset: You never know when you will need your fitness..

Happy Monday!

I’m traveling again, this time to Nashville delivering a week-long training to our owners and coaches throughout the Fit Body brand. 🤗

I return on Sunday so, in next Monday’s Mindset message, I will have some good take-aways for you so be ready!

For today, I’m still reflecting on last week. 🤔

If you remember, I took a trip to Sioux Falls to attend the Grand Opening of my dear friend and Franchise Business Coach CJ Werhkamp. CJ who was also a face of our recorded videos during COVID.

And 1 thing I left out last week was how the trip ended!

Turns out, I had a flight back to Orange County that was routed through Phoenix, AZ.

And the bustling metropolis of Sioux Falls doesn’t have many flights going out on a daily basis.. So when I found out my flight to Phoenix was going to be delayed, it looked like I was going to have to spend 6 hours in the Phoenix airport due to missing the connecting flight.

Bummer. 🙁

Although when I finally boarded the plane from Sioux Falls to Phoenix, I received an SMS notification that the Phoenix to Orange County flight was delayed. Although from the initial notification, it looked like I was still going to miss the flight by 30 minutes.

So for the first time in my traveling career, I began to hope that my connecting flight would be delayed..

When I arrived in Phoenix.. it turns out that’s exactly what happened! 😱

The only problem, my connecting flight to Orange County was in the other terminal and had only 3 minutes before the gates closed to make the distance of a 15-minute walk according to the attendant.

Now I didn’t check any baggage and only had flip flops on.

So upon exit, I went into a full court sprint mode for 5 full minutes. Yes, you know from camp, 5 minutes of 100% intensity is absolutely brutal!

When I arrived, the door has just locked by a 2 minutes. So I began to politely and urgently plead my case to the attendant to let please me on.

The attendant called the pilot on the radio and after a 15-second hesitation which seemed like an hour, she opened the gate and said “go now, hurry!” so off I went.

I made it and thank goodness! 🥳

And as it turns out, I found out later that the evening flight was canceled to Orange County. So if I didn’t make this flight, I would have been posted up in the airport for nearly 16 hours until the next day.

Moral of the story?

You never know when your fitness will come in handy.

So my message today is rather than getting fit… stay fit and your life will benefit.

You see, those burpees help after all! 😉

Especially next time you unexpectedly need to burst out in a full court 5 minutes sprint throughout an airport so you can spend more time with your family! ❤️

Make it a great week!

Monday Mindset: Some takeaways from my trip to Sioux Falls 1024 768 Bryce Henson

Monday Mindset: Some takeaways from my trip to Sioux Falls

Happy Monday!

I just got back to California after an incredible weekend celebrating my friend and Fit Body Franchise Business Coach CJ, his team & clients Sioux Falls Fit Body in South Dakota. ❤️

You may remember CJ and his team from all the virtual Fit Body workouts during COVID.

And it was my first time there and it was such a fun town!

Hundreds of people came out in the community for their Grand Opening block party event to kick off their 2nd location all to get a little better. 💥

They even had a dunk tank and raised a few thousand dollars for our charity partner the Special Olympics.

And yes, yours truly got dunked 5 times!

Fun times! 😉

In reflection of the amazing weekend, I wanted to provide some valuable takeaways that will help you on your fitness journey.

✅ Show me your friends and I’ll show you your future. As who you surround yourself with is who you become. This is why group accountability and friendships from positive & dedicated people at boot camp are so beneficial to your long term fitness success!

✅ Dream big, take bigger action. CJ and his team took a lot of time to prepare the event to make it special for the community. That’s the same with your fitness goals. I wish there was an easy button, but there’s not. So prepare by planning your week, scheduling at least 3 sessions in our booking app and plan your meals. When you dream big and take even bigger action towards your fitness goals, your quality of life will improve.

✅ Don’t forget to have some fun. Watching CJ lead, shine and make the experience fun is his personal mantra and is embedded deep in the fabric of his culture and community.

This is a critical part of your success and keeps you coming back for more!

Let’s make it a great week!

Monday Mindset: Intentional or Conditional? 919 1024 Bryce Henson

Monday Mindset: Intentional or Conditional?

This past weekend was exceptional as I had the opportunity to MC the High Performance Summit led by Bedros Keulian & Wes Watson where I gave the opening keynote..

If you haven’t heard of Wes, he is a MEGA successful fitness coach and entrepreneur. 💯

In fact, he’s known as “America’s Most Famous Felon”. 

Yes, that’s right, he was a self proclaimed “gangster’ without direction in his youth. He fell to the streets of gangs and the drug trade. 😱

And after being caught and then serving 10 years in the California State Penitentiary, he had an “ah-hah ” during serving his time in society. 

Midway through his sentence, he had an “awakening” and his focus turned 180 degrees from the negative to the positive. 

His biggest message from the stage? 👇

Most people live conditional lives NOT intentional ones.

“Sorry I’m a late boss, traffic was bad.” Traffic was the condition. 

“I overate last night because of my friend’s B day celebration.” Your friend was the condition.

“I slept through my alarm because my spouse wanted to watch some Netflix last night.” Your spouse is the condition.

Instead, when you take the approach of “self mastery” and living an intentional life, things change and results happen!

To illustrate his point, he closed his opening teaching with the story of the day he was released. As the latter ½ of his prison term he began to work on self improvement, reading and bettering himself.
So much so that he developed a rock solid mindset that the “condition” of the prison wasn’t a cause of pain. It was a source of his personal growth.

No, he didn’t desire to stay in prison for the rest of his life..

But when the warden came to let him know he was released after 10 years.  

He did not jump up immediately (condition), he calmly thanked the warden. But said he needed to finish his last meal to ensure he got his proper protein in (which he tracked his food even in prison).

So he calmly finished his meal and then 20 minutes later, got up and was released. 💪

Self mastery and intentionality as its finest.

This is an example of a transformation towards intention and away from condition. ⚡️

I hope you are inspired to do the same!

Monday Mindset: Just because it’s not your fault, doesn’t mean it’s not your responsibility. 1024 1024 Bryce Henson

Monday Mindset: Just because it’s not your fault, doesn’t mean it’s not your responsibility.

I hope you enjoyed a good Father’s Day weekend! 

We had a great client appreciation picnic on Saturday so a big thanks to all who attended. And as it pertains to Sunday, I wanted to wish a BIG Happy Fathers Day again to all the awesome dads.💥

My siblings and I caught great fortune with my mother Donna who picked up both mom and dad roles for our family.

This was due to her need to escape my father’s grasp while living through a chaotic situation riddled with addiction when I was just a boy.

Today’s message?

Life happens for you and not to you. 💪

Yes, sometimes it throws you unexpected curveballs. 

But just because it’s not your fault, doesn’t mean it’s not your responsibility.

That’s the lesson I learned from my mother Donna who stepped up and turned father. ❤️

As it wasn’t her fault, but leaned into the responsibility which is a great metaphor for many things in your life.

I hope this message also resonates with you so please share it with someone in need. 👊

Happy Fathers Day. ❤️

Monday Mindset – What’s behind the door? 🚪 150 150 Bryce Henson

Monday Mindset – What’s behind the door? 🚪

My buddy Joey sent me this a while back and got value so know you will too…👇

A few years ago, a coworker told me a short story about a king, a criminal, fear, and freedom. 

The story really left a long-lasting impression on me. 

In fact, I visualize the door from the story in my mind almost every single day. 

Let me pass the story on to you — it goes like this: 

A criminal was caught committing a crime and brought before a king for sentencing. 

The king told him to choose between two punishments: 

  1. Hanging by rope OR 
  2. Taking whatever was behind an ominous, mysterious ironclad door 

Without hesitation, the criminal chose the rope. 📿

The king, not shocked, mumbled “everybody chooses the rope” while he ordered to have a noose put around the criminal’s neck. 

Seeing the king’s reaction, the criminal asked: 

“So… out of curiosity, what’s behind the door?” 

The king paused then said: 

“Freedom — but everybody is so fearful of the unknown that they immediately choose the rope.” 

HOW TRUE! 💯

I don’t know about you, but I believe that it’s unreasonable to be completely fearless— 

To reach a point in your life where you never, ever feel fear.

Life is too dynamic nowadays. 👊

Situations present themselves in a flash and leave you: 

  • Fearing how your trying will end in failure 
  • Fearing how you’re not good enough 
  • Fearing how your ego or reputation will be bruised 

The good news is, like many emotions, I do believe fear has its lace… 

AS A TOOL. 

You just need a strategy to face it so it doesn’t completely overwhelm you. 

If it does, you’re paralyzed…  

And you’ll most certainly “choose the rope”.  

When I’m facing the fear of a limiting belief, big lift, or business risk, here’s how I prevent the overwhelm: 

(I call it the triple B strategy!) 

I breathe to create space between me and my fear. 

Just a sliver of space — a moment of detachment — and, in that space,  

I bring awareness to the gift (yes, I said gift) that this fear is presenting to me, such as: 

  • Increased brainpower to focus 
  • Increased motivation to move 
  • Increased opportunity to grow 

And then comes the hard part: 

I barrel towards the fear. 💥

For you, it could be public speaking, joining a fitness program, launching a business, learning a new skill in a group setting, starting a difficult conversation with a coworker, ending a relationship —  

Whatever it is, remember that fear doesn’t have to confine you… 

It can be the thing that frees you. 😱

If you value freedom as much as I do, give my strategy a shot and let me know if it helps you out! 

Here’s to turning fears into freedom this year,

Monday Mindset – Remember and Honor.. 150 150 Bryce Henson

Monday Mindset – Remember and Honor..

The last 2 years were a great test which questioned our resolve.

Although through the adversity, the fact remains, that we value FREEDOM here in this amazing country of ours. 🇺🇸

No, we are not without problems. ☑️

In fact, problems are just a sign of life…

However, we have an incredible nation to call home, and this value of freedom is engrained in our DNA.

Not because it’s free.

Rather, because of the strong men and women, both past and present, that have served to defend it…💯

Happy Memorial Day and let’s remember its true purpose by remembering and honoring our fallen soldiers who have and continued to protect our freedom. 👊

Ahh.. 

And don’t also forget to enjoy some time with your loved ones which make our freedom most enjoyable.❤️

Love and gratitude,

-Coach Bryce
