70 years of wisdom

Happy Monday Mindset!🙌

This past Friday was a special one as Tatiana and I celebrated my dear friend Mara’s 70th B Day.🎉

Mara and I met in June 2014.

She lives in south Orange County, but was born and raised in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

I’ve been taking Brazilian Portuguese private lessons with her every weekend for nearly 10 years.🇧🇷

And unless a very special circumstance or either of us are traveling, we meet every weekend with incredible consistency.

Now she started as my 2nd language teacher behind my mother-in-law. 🙂

And with time, she’s become one of my closest friends in life.

I now consider her my 3rd mom after my dear mother Donna and Mother in Law Cristina nearly 10 years into our relationship.🙏

I feel blessed.

Now to unpack this, there are so many lessons she’s taught me about her language, her culture, and her life packed with 70 years of wisdom.✨

But probably the biggest lesson is the value of relationships in coaching which is the industry I’ve chosen to pursue a career in.💥

Yes, I am a very disciplined guy which has kept me committed.

In fact, one of my superpowers is that I can lock in on a target for an unreasonable amount of time to get the desired result.

However, the truth is that the main reason I keep coming back week in and week out is only partially due to discipline.

The other significant part is driven due to our relationship.

Mara is a beautiful soul coming from a completely different walk of life who I love.🥰

She grew up in another country & continent on the other side of the world 30 years before I made my entrance to planet earth.

She’s an incredible listener.👂

She makes conversation fun.🤗  

She’s very thoughtful and compassionate.

She’s very curious.

She knows her craft well.

And best of all, she cares.  


In fact, there’s been only 1 time in 10 years she’s needed to cut out of the lesson first. That’s such a cool fact I like to share in that I FEEL her love and support.

This makes lessons with her fly by as I focus on the relationship.🌟

And as a byproduct, I have gained fluency in her beautiful language after years of putting in the work which I have no plans on stopping.

And this my friend, is the takeaway.

Today’s message is for you to pick something that’s meaningful to you in which you want to achieve.  Yes, something hard that will both challenge and change you.

This could be fitness, business, or any hobby that catches your fancy. 

The more time to master, the better as that will 10x the fullfiment. 

Then seek out guidance from someone who’s gone where you want to go.

After all, guides show you the path.

But also know that all guides are not created equal.

So, ensure you mesh well with them. Ensure they are passionate about the subject you are learning as passion transfers.

Ensure you have common ground, and you genuinely like them.  

And then focus on the RELATIONSHIP, not just the transaction of learning.🌟

This is where long term consistency and results resid, even when the going gets tough. Trust me, the going will get tough, and you will feel like quitting often.

But when this feeling hits, the RELATIONSHIP will carry you through.

This is what has worked for me and what I teach my team of coaches here in Mission Viejo.👊

This approach has allowed me to accomplish a very challenging goal, and greatly fulfilled my life in the process.

My hope is you achieve the same success and fulfillment in whatever you are after.🔥

And of course, if you ever need help, my team and I are here.

Make it a GREAT week!💪

Don’t overlook this foundation fo r success. 150 150 Bryce Henson

Don’t overlook this foundation fo r success.


This Saturday our team of coaches here in Mission Viejo executed our quarterly team training.

We aligned as a team.✨

We discussed the game plan for the next 90 days.

We discussed how to better support our clients.

We reviewed the form coaches training provided at our World Conference event last month in Dallas. 

And most importantly, we focused on the basics of coaching which was a great reset.🔥


Life comes at you fast.👊

But if you take a step back, you realize that success leaves clues.

Whether it’s in professional sports, hard charging business executives, or great parents..

A commonality is that they focus on the basics which compound all aspects of their lives.💥

They eat well.

They get enough sleep.

They train 3-4x per week.

They invest time in their family & relationships.

They work hard.

They focus on learning & growing personally and professionally.

My friend, these are the basics..

No, they are not glamorous but where success resides!

So as our 10LB. Fall Challenge kicks off today..

Let’s take the next few weeks and focus on the basics. 

As this will set you up for long term success!🌟

Freedom 150 150 Bryce Henson


Happy Monday Mindset!🙌

This past weekend I gave a keynote at the BK Live Event hosted by my business partner & founder of Fit Body, Bedros Keuilian.

In my talk, I covered why I decided to stop going down the bad path of drugs and alcohol in my 20’s.🥃

I described the pain of my rock bottom moment nearly 7 years ago. 

But also the hope & solution I found when I eventually sought help. 

In a nutshell, my message was that you can take action to rewrite your story for a better and a FREER life at any time. 

This is true for you too, even if you feel stuck at the moment. 

If you can relate, I would encourage you to ask for help and seek support from a coach/community.✨

When you do, you will increase your probability to focus on your fitness, become more disciplined, and make better choices..

And while tough at first..

You eventually gain more FREEDOM!⚡️

This message is also very important today being Monday, September 11.

As today marks the 22 year anniversary of the dreadful day where FREEDOM was attacked and many lives lost when the twin towers in New York City were hit.🗽

My hope that we will never forget and always understand the true value of FREEDOM while honoring the lives lost.🙏

And lastly, to encourage you to live with urgency so you are empowered to rewrite your story of health, wellness and fitness NOW to gain more of the FREEDOM you deserve.💪

Do you Labor? 150 150 Bryce Henson

Do you Labor?

Happy Monday Mindset!🙌

Today is Labor Day here in the states.🇺🇸

I did some research on the origin and this is what came up on Wikipedia..

“Labor Day is a federal holiday in the United States celebrated on the first Monday in September to honor and recognize the American labor movement and the works and contributions of laborers to the development and achievements of the United States.The three-day weekend it falls on is called Labor Day Weekend.”

While I believe this is a noble cause.✨

I do have some concerns.

Speaking freely..

I see a lot of entitlement & resistance to labor in our country as of late.

Now regardless of the root cause on a macro level..

My mindset message today is intended to make you think and inspire you on a micro level..

So it’s time to take moral inventory.💥

I challenge you to look at yourself in the mirror and ask yourself, whole heartedly..

Do you labor?

What I mean this is..

  • Do you give it your all every day?
  • Are you active in your fitness?
  • Are you challenging yourself to grow in your fitness, family and finances to achieve the best version of you every single day?

Time is fleeting.⌛️

If your answer is no, let this day be a good wake up call to step your fitness, family and finances game. As the time is NOW!

If your answer is yes, enjoy some well deserved time off with your loves ones, and then get ready to attack your week ahead!💪

As rest is important, but AFTER the labor and never before.

Happy Labor Day!🎉

-Coach Bryce 

PS I am excited to announce our 8 Week Fall Challenge which starts Monday September 18. I will send registration info on Wednesday so stay tuned!

The Study of Human Nature 150 150 Bryce Henson

The Study of Human Nature

Happy Monday Mindset!🙌

I wanted to share a story from last week that I shared with my fellow Fit Body Franchise Partners being we are in the people business.

Why is this important to you?🤔

Whether you work in the service industry or not. 

You surely interact with people everyday. 

So it is very important to study human nature. This way you can interact more successfully which will aid you in many aspects of your daily life. 

If you get value, please share with a friend! 🙂

Straight from the World Conference, I boarded a flight from Dallas to Poland. I grew up with Polish heritage in that my grandma was 1st generation.🇵🇱

Her parents escaped the Communist/Socialist regime prior to World War 1. They ended up making it to Detroit, Michigan when Henry Ford opened his manufacturing plants in the early 1900’s. 

This is why I am so patriotic and grateful for their sacrifice. 🇺🇸

And while these are my roots..

Ironically, I took a visit due to my wife Coach Tatiana’s family.  As my brother-in-law Luiz moved to Poland from Florianopolis, Brazil last year for his work.🇧🇷

Luiz’s grandma is the one who helped Tatiana, him and I to acquire our Portuguese Citizenship a few years ago, which technically makes us both Portuguese. Although I suppose that is a story for another day…

Anyway, on one of the evening tours.. 

I walked in a street market with Luiz and we saw a Portuguese food truck amongst many other options.🇵🇹

They had a very famous Brazilian soft drink displayed, so we walked up to the counter and tried to order. The man behind the counter addressed us in Polish which neither of us understood. 

After he realized his message didn’t land..

He then turned and spoke Portuguese to his colleague behind the counter asking him if he could take our order in English..

When I heard Portuguese, I immediately asked him if he was Brazilian in Brazilian Portuguese. 

As I made out a few words even though it was very loud and I couldn’t make out his accent from 1 sentence. 

He replied in Portuguese..  

“No, I am from Portugal.”

He then returned the question and I replied.. 

“Well, I am American and my brother-in-law is Brazilian”.

I paused for a second and then added..

“But come to think of it, we are all Portuguese”.

The metaphor and moral of the story is this..

Even though people have big differences in culture, language and customs. In this case, all 3 of us grew up in different countries, continents, and cultures for that matter.

Deep down as humans, we are all the same.✨

We all have the same instincts, desires, and fears. And we are all doing the best we can with what we have.👊

This is why it’s so important we understand & forever study human nature to the core being we are in the people business.💯

PS I am excited to announce our 8 Week Fall Challenge which starts Monday September 18. I will send more info later this week so stay tuned! 🙂

The “Good” Mindset (How to overcome any obstacle) 150 150 Bryce Henson

The “Good” Mindset (How to overcome any obstacle)

Happy Monday Mindset!🙌

I am still buzzing on our incredible World Conference event last week.. 💪

As I reflect, it reminded me of 1 of our keynote speakers for 2019’s event who was also spectacular. 

His name is Jocko Willink.🔥

He is a retired US Navy Seal, best-selling author of “Extreme Ownership” and leadership expert.

He has an iron-clad mindset and produced this 2-minute video below as a framework on how he shifts his mindset and that of us his team to overcome any challenge.👊

I refer to it at least a handful of times every year to help me when things get tough.

So if you are going through a tough situation now.

Or next time you do..

I trust it will aid you on your journey so you can handle all that life throws at you. And if it helps, my only ask is to pay it forward by sharing. 🙂

World Conference Recap 150 150 Bryce Henson

World Conference Recap

Happy Monday Mindset!🔥

This weekend was nothing short of INCREDIBLE!💪

475 attendees traveled from across North America to Dallas, Texas for 3 days.🌟

The mission was simple.

Pour into our Fit Body Franchise Partners, Leaders and Coaches. This way, they could return to their local locations and pour into their clients and communities. 

Mission Accomplished!🙌

What’s even better?

Seeing our Mission Viejo team teach and support our attendees. All while having the opportunity to learn and grow from other presenters and coaches.👊 

Here at Fit Body, we call this “ironing sharpening iron” which is also how our clients get in such great shape with the coaching & community of our program.🚀

In reflection of our event, today’s message is this:

If you want to be successful in any aspect of your life. Whether that’s fitness, family, professional or anything else. 

The best way is to seek out guidance from someone who has already achieved the goal you are after. Then surround yourself with positive people who will lift you up, support you, and challenge you to become even better!⚡️

When you do, you will grow and achieve your target!💥

The Separation is in the Preparation 150 150 Bryce Henson

The Separation is in the Preparation

Happy Monday!🙌

I was chatting with my good friend Mara last week about this year’s World Conference.

In case you need clarity..

The Fit Body World Conference (WC) is our annual convention for our Franchise Partners and coaches to learn and grow.  This way, our clients receive an even better experience and results here at Fit Body!💪

This year’s conference is hosted in Dallas, Texas this Friday/Saturday, August 11/12!🌟

In conversation, I shared with Mara how excited I am for our Franchise Partners, coaches, team, clients and brand! 

There’s also a special bonus this year..

Our Mission Viejo team will be leading the works outs & speaking on a panel to help coach other coaches throughout North America. This is extra significant as we have the biggest WC in recent history with 467 people registered!💥

Mara then asked me if I was nervous about the event and speaking in front of nearly 500 people.

My answer?


Always am and always will be as that’s a sign of focus and care!✨

That said, the Conference or “game” as I referred to it, will already be won or lost long before my team & I arrive in Dallas. 

As at that point, we are just executing against our preparation. As there will be no miracles one way or the other.

As how we prepare is how we execute. 👊 

This is the bottom line. 

This is the same for your health in fitness as you journey through life!

You see..

Next time a disease or virus hits your system.. 

Your level of resiliency will depend on your preparation towards your health and fitness game long before the attack on your immune system!

If you have prepared your fitness, it will be much easier to manage. The opposite is also true.

The good news?

My team and I have been prepping for months and when game time arrives on Friday, execution will match. This way our people get a GREAT experience which trickles down to support our clients!🙏

This is also what I want for you with your health and fitness which is my message today!

If you need help with your fitness preparation, please lean on my team and I!💪

Make it a GREAT Monday!🙌

The Coffee Guy 150 150 Bryce Henson

The Coffee Guy


I am excited to share that I am the newest appointed coffee guy.☕️

No, I don’t drink coffee.❌

I’m referring to the 6 month commitment I picked up at my 12-step program last week.

You see, on 1 hand I am the CEO of an International Fitness Franchise. This comes with plenty of authority and responsibility.💯

On the other, I am the low man on the totem pole. As I have a noble job, ensuring the coffee is prepared at my Monday night meeting.

This way, I can be of service to other recovering alcoholics like me.👋

Humbling huh?

Good. Just the way it needs to be!

As it reminds me to always have a white belt mentality.🧠

It reminds me to be of service to others. 

It reminds me there’s always someone who knows more.👊 

As there’s always room to grow, innovate, improve and to help others no matter the task.🌱

This is the purpose of life.

To continue to develop to your full potential in the service of others! 🎯

That might mean you are a hard-charging business executive, an active member of your church or leader of your family..⚡️

It also means that you still must ensure the trash gets picked up and put out.

So my message to you today is this.

“You are above nothing, so put in the work!”

This is also my daily reminder to myself!

And a good message I wanted to share with you.✨

Love, respect and gratitude.

Make it a GREAT Monday!

The Sound of Freedom.. 150 150 Bryce Henson

The Sound of Freedom..

When I began my fitness journey, I wanted a better physique. 💪 

Vain but true.💯

Maybe you can relate?

And while I achieved the goal within the first 6 months of my journey, I had no idea the other benefits fitness would provide.

More energy, more mental clarity, more confidence and more enthusiasm toward life to name a few. 

Although, if you really break it down..

Fitness provided me FREEDOM.🔥

FREEDOM from embarrassment, FREEDOM from shame and FREEDOM from anxiety. 

In fact, the FREEDOM I derived impacted me so much.. 

It inspired me to become a fitness coach, open a Fit Body location and work to support others to become FREE of the problems of a sedentary lifestyle. 

I feel blessed as this truly fills my cup.🙏

And while you and I enjoy this FREEDOM, there are millions of people in the world that don’t. My wife Tatiana and I watched the film “Sound of Freedom” last week at the movies.🎬

By now, I hope you have heard of the film which has blown up the box office. It’s the first time I’ve gone to the movies or watched a film in years. 

Candidly, a big part of me wasn’t overly excited to go given the grueling nature of the film. But I also knew that I had a duty, obligation and responsibility toward humanity to watch it.🙌

This is especially as I experienced a close encounter of sexual abuse when I was 11.  And the probability is very high that many people within our Fit Family could have or know someone affected by this crime.

I share this to showcase the fact that this situation is real and closer to home than any of us can imagine.

My take?

If you haven’t seen it.. You MUST.💥

It’s a tough story to digest, but one that needs to be shared.

And while very sad in nature, the film also provides HOPE which is my message today!💪

HOPE that good people like you and me will share the message and begin to solve the problem of human trafficking and provide FREEDOM to children across the world.

I know you to be a person who wants to live a better life and do good towards humanity. So to lead by example, Tatiana and I purchase $510 worth of tickets for you to take advantage. 🎟️

If you cannot afford it or wouldn’t pay for the film, please take advantage of the offer and watch the film.

Our only ask is that you see the film in the next 2 weeks and pay it forward by sharing the message of the sound of FREEDOM that we enjoy.

== > Claim your FREE ticket

Love, respect and gratitude.

Make it a GREAT Monday!🙌
