3 takeaways from 9 years.. 150 150 Bryce Henson

3 takeaways from 9 years..

Mission Viejo Fit Body just celebrated our 9-year anniversary this past Saturday.🥳

Thank you to you and all those who supported!🙌

1 part of me cannot believe nearly a decade has whipped by quicker than a blink of an eye.😱

1 part of me reflects on the blood, sweat, and tears poured in by you, all our clients, my team, and I over 9 amazing years!

The backstory?👇

My wife Tatiana and I had just put our life savings into this little dream of owning a Fit Body Boot Camp location where we could coach clients to fitness success!

As fitness changed our lives and we wanted to give that back to our community here in Orange County.

When opening, we knew we were equipped to change people’s fitness.💪

However, we didn’t fully realize the relationships, and deep connections we would make with you, our team, and the community along the way.

Without question, this has been the biggest blessing!🙏

So in memory of the 9 years of blood sweat and tears, here are 3 learning lessons that can help you on your fitness journey..

  1. Take calculated risks toward your dreams. Don’t rush into things. However, you only have 1 crack at this thing called life. So make it count! Take big shots and calculated risks. Invest in your health and fitness often. If you don’t, you will live with regret. 
  2. Your support group (aka team) is everything. You, our team of clients, and coaches are the heroes of our business. You deserve true recognition and praise. And just like in business, fitness is a team sport. You need the support system of coaches and accountability partners to stay on track. As without a team, you will limit your progress. 
  3. The more you sweat in practice, the less you bleed in war. Just like business, fitness is war. You must prepare now, far before you need to rely on it. Why? Well because at some point, something unexpected will come up. Heaven forbid cancer, disease, or another virus that will attack your immune system which is inevitable. However, if you prepare your body now, you will be thankful later. 

Happy 9-Year Mission Viejo Fit Body and here’s to make more!

How my battle with alcoholism can help your fitness journey 150 150 Bryce Henson

How my battle with alcoholism can help your fitness journey

Yes, that’s right…

Not a fun topic to admit, but it’s the truth.💯

I am recovering alcoholic. 

In fact, I just celebrated my 6th-year alcohol-free at the end of December.🙌

How have I done it?

Definitely not 6 years at a time.

Rather, 1 day at a time..

Why is this important?🤔

We are in the 2nd week of our brand-wide 10lb Challenge.

And in the next week or 2, the newness & excitement will soon wear off.🎯

The reality of the achy muscles, the early morning or late evenings will set it.

Our challengers might even begin to think..

“If it’s always going to be this hard, well I might as well quit!”

The worst part?😱

That’s a false thought!

Although rest assured, I had those same thoughts when I first started my fitness regime in January of 2007.

And the exact same when I decided to put down the bottle in December 2016.🥃

I thought to myself during those early days..

“I will never make it if it will always be this hard.”

But here’s the thing..

It WON’T always be this hard even though it seems like the moment!📍

Why?

It feels this way just because you cannot see the progress yet.

Although you are making progress day by day.💪

This is the same when it was hard to stack a few weeks together, and then BOOM!💥

The next thing I knew I picked up a 6-month sobriety chip.🎉

I gained some momentum..

Then a year, then 2 years.

I looked back and thought..

“This isn’t easy, but I can do it”.

So can you!👊

My friend, it won’t always be this hard.

You will gain momentum. 

The secret?

Just 1 day at a time..

Head up and onward, my team and I are here for you!🙏

Martin Luther King – procrastination is still the thief of time 150 150 Bryce Henson

Martin Luther King – procrastination is still the thief of time

I want to share one of my favorite quotes of all time with you.💥

“We are now faced with the fact, my friends, that tomorrow is today.  

We are confronted with the fierce urgency of now. 

In this unfolding conundrum of life and history, there is such a thing as being too late.

Procrastination is still the thief of time.  

Life often leaves us standing bare, naked, and dejected with a lost opportunity. 

The tide in the affairs of men does not remain at flood – it ebbs.  

We may cry out desperately for time to pause in her passage, but time is adamant to every plea and rushes on.  

Over the bleached bones and jumbled residues of numerous civilizations are written the pathetic words, ‘Too late.’”

Martin Luther King, Jr

New York City, April 4th, 1967

Such powerful words!🔥

This is a reminder to NEVER take for granted the time that I have.⏰

It’s also a reminder that I need to be in the best physical condition that I can be.💪

I want to live without restriction. 

I want to collect experiences and live to the fullest before it’s ‘too late’.

My wish for you is the same.🙌

With love,

-Coach Bryce

[MM] My Head Coach Jake got hitched! (3 Important Business Lessons) 768 1024 Bryce Henson

[MM] My Head Coach Jake got hitched! (3 Important Business Lessons)

Happy Monday Mindset!💥

On Saturday night, my family attended Head Coach Jake’s wedding in Carlsbad. He’s been a dear friend and a key leader in our Mission Viejo Fit Body location for the past 7+ years.❤️

It was an amazing event celebrating his marriage to his beautiful bride Sara after many years of dating.🎉

Throughout the incredible experience, I came away with 3 big takeaways you can apply to your fitness and business. 👇

  1. Structure & Planning. It was very apparent there was solid planning which made the event special. It was well rehearsed, their opening dances were on point, it was very personal, and executed nearly flawlessly due to the preparation. Creating a game plan is extremely important to your success as this directly ties to your fitness. Our coaches can help!
  2. Adjustments. A few adjustments had to be made mid-event by the wedding coordinator. But since the plan was already in place, it was easy to adjust with some flexibility. This is true in life & in your fitness journey. Sometimes unforeseen things come up, and you have to adjust which is just part of the fitness game. 
  3. Personality & Culture. Jake and Sara did an incredible job of putting their own style and personality into the event. They both love country music which was a theme throughout. By adding their personal touch, it added so much culture to the ceremony and made the evening very special. This is why we work so hard here at Mission Viejo Fit Body to create strong relationships and culture with you and all our clients. This way, you feel a magical experience every workout and want to continue coming back for more fitness!

My friend, apply these principles to your life and fitness and watch them both grow!🎯

(MM) The #1 secret to making your 2023 goals stick.. 150 150 Bryce Henson

(MM) The #1 secret to making your 2023 goals stick..

Happy Monday & New Year!🎉🎉🎉

Here we go 2023!

I just returned from a 9-day trip to Brazil for Christmas.🎄

Why?

Well, I made a promise to my wife Tatiana’s mom when I swept her off her island of Florianopolis in 2012 that I would return her for Christmas every year.❤️

So I was making good on that promise.

And as a big bonus..

It’s always great to be with family.

Which is also the focus of today’s message as we embark on a New Year!💥

As if you are anything like me, you are excited on the promise that 2023 will bring.

The better health, better fitness, better relationships, better version of you!👊

And while yes, that’s important.💯

I’ve found that the biggest goals I have accomplished in life have been tied around the service of others.

Ironically, human nature tends to disappoint ourselves the most.

On the contrary, when we wrap a self-serving goal or mission around helping others, we dig deeper and it more often sticks.

Fascinating, right?

So if you want to lose weight, get fit, launch a business, stop smoking/drinking, get healthy, be active, travel more or whatever it is this year for you…

I would strongly suggest tying your goal to something that will also benefit your loved ones.💪

Think to yourself, by achieving this goal that will better my life, how can this also help others?🤔

That becomes your focus!🧘🏻‍♂️

As when you do, you will find the strength to continue even when the going gets tough. Which it will.

That’s my hope for you in 2023 as it’s been fundamental in any success I have achieved to date which is what I want for you this year. ☀️

Happy New Year my friend, this year will be the best yet!🙏

(MM) The GOAT 🐐🐐 150 150 Bryce Henson

(MM) The GOAT 🐐🐐

Happy Monday!

This last week was very bittersweet for my family as both the US and Brazil exited the World Cup. And specific to the Brazilian side, their biggest country rival Argentina just claimed the World Cup yesterday in dramatic fashion.🇦🇷

In many ways, a tough pill to swallow for my Brazilian wife Coach Tatiana and family as “futebol” is a religion in South America.💊

Although in fairness, it was special to watch greatness.🔥 

As the 5 ‘7 magician Lionel Messi who grew up in Argentina and spent his adult life in Spain scored 3 goals in the match of his career to help his nation knock off France to win the 2022 FIFA World Cup.🏆

Simply amazing and with his storied career and an incredible amount of European championships already under his belt..

This will solidify him to most as the Greatest of All Time in the World Game aka The GOAT 🐐🐐 

I don’t know about you, but while I wasn’t happy to see Argentina win, I personally respect and admire greatness. 

Hats off to Messi and Argentina..👒

And that reminds me of you today. 

In life, like in the World Cup, there will be some big moments that come up that your family & loved ones need you.🤗

Please be honest with yourself as there will be a need.

What’s even more urgent?

This day is likely coming quicker than you think!

My question to you is are you putting the reps and sets like Messi? 

Are you preparing your mental and fitness to be able to support them?🤔

My friend, there will be a moment that arises when your family relies on you.💯

My hope is that, like Lionel Messi, you will have prepared so you can rise to the occasion and be the GOAT for your family.

The time is now to get prepared. 

My team and I can help.💪

(MM) The power of acceptance 150 150 Bryce Henson

(MM) The power of acceptance

Happy Monday!🙌

Last week I had a therapy session with my “mindset coach” Dr. Kevin. He is a brilliant therapist with a lot of life & clinical experience. 💥

I have been seeing him off and on since 2016. 

He is also featured on this Wednesday’s Fit Life Orange County podcast episode as I just interviewed him so stay tuned!🥳

Anyway, I’m currently working through a personal issue right now that is out of my control. 

Yes, I can influence the outcome to a certain extent. But in this specific situation, the complete result is not controlled by me.

The Issue?  

It’s something I find important.🎯

The Bigger Issue?

I don’t control the outcome.💯

Dr. Kevin’s answer? 

Acceptance.⚡️

Frankly, that’s not the answer I wanted to hear as it goes against many of my personal beliefs on my ability to positively affect the outcome with enough focused energy. 

However, taking a step back, there’s alot of truth and wisdom in his coaching.

The dichotomy of life is knowing there are many things you can influence so you need to take action where you can. As candidly, too many people play the helpless victim.

But on the other side of the coin.. 

You also must understand in life that some things are completely out of your control so in these situations, you must practice acceptance.  

Wisdom is not confusing the two. 

Need a helping strategy?

This is the prayer I practice at my alcohol support group which is another way to ground the message. I trust it will help you as it’s done for me.👇

“God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can, and wisdom to know the difference.”

[MM] Tradition & Competition (The World Cup) 150 150 Bryce Henson

[MM] Tradition & Competition (The World Cup)

Happy Monday!🙌

The FIFA World Cup is upon in the case you have been watching. If you haven’t, this is the world’s game & tournament that happens every 4 years.💥

This year has been especially interesting as there has been some controversy on the host location of Qatar for reasons outside the scope of today’s message. 

Sadly for our American squad, they matched up against a very tough Netherlands team and got eliminated over the weekend.

Although I am still hoping for my 2nd team (Brazil) playing in a few hours who is my favorite this year. 👊

My Brazilian wife Tatiana, her family and I are excited!

In reflection around the tournament, there are 2 big takeaways that I wanted to share which have applications for your fitness, business and life. 

These are 1) tradition and 2) competition.👇

  1. Tradition. Tradition can be incredible for establishing rich culture, efficiency, consistency and success. In the fitness and fat loss world, we call traditions routines. As executing a strong & consistent tradition (routine) is the only way long term you will find results. 
  2. Competition. Competition makes us all better as everyone needs a push. In fact, this is why we have local, state, national and world competitions to create positive pressure to propel us forward. This is the same with your fitness & fat loss and why we create a few Transformation Challenges throughout the year to produce incredible client results through the power of friendly competition!

Looking ahead, please apply these 2 principles of the World Cup to your life and watch your fitness grow!

[MM] Results, Relationship, and Community 1024 768 Bryce Henson

[MM] Results, Relationship, and Community

Happy Monday!🙌

The 3 pillars of Fit Body are on my mind this Monday morning.

They are Results, Relationships, and Community.✈️✈️

Yes, we pride ourselves on driving results for our clients. We also focus on creating a platform to foster both relationships and community.

This was evident on Saturday evening as we hosted our Annual Fall Client Celebration event at the Irvine Spectrum.

We had 50 of our amazing clients and team in attendance. We celebrated their success and fostered deeper relationships and community in the process.💥

It was a great time of eating, bonding, and connecting which is also a good analogy for happiness.🥳

As Humans derive happiness from living healthy, setting & achieving goals, and creating long-lasting relationships. 👊

In fact, if you look at the happiest people, they are abundant in these 3 pillars of their lives. 💯

So my message today is to focus on your health & fitness.

Focus on being a person of value to others. Foster deep relationships and be a productive member of our community. 

When you do, you will achieve the happiness you deserve!🙏

Let’s make it a great week!

[MM] the hidden vs. real costs 150 150 Bryce Henson

[MM] the hidden vs. real costs

Happy Monday!

I received the below mindset message from Bedros Keuilian.

He is my business partner and Founder of Fit Body.

It hit home around the hidden vs. real costs around your health and fitness.

I trust you will get value as I did so wanted to share to kick-start your week!👇

The hidden costs are always higher than the obvious costs.

Let me speak to you from my experience…

When I was growing my business and in the “thick of it” I started slacking off on my workouts and diet.

Basically, I used as much of my time to work on my growing business, and then when I was stressed out I’d “stress eat”.

It didn’t take long for me to add 30 pounds of fat to my body.

Now, logically I knew this was not good for my health.❌

But I rationalized it by telling myself that I’d start working out more consistently and eating better once my business was rocking.

Truth be told, I was making excuses.💯

The logical cost of letting myself get fat was putting my health at risk.

But the real cost was sliding into a depression.😭

The real cost was the constant anxiety I had.

The real cost was the feeling like an imposter and hypocrite.

The real cost was eroding my confidence.

The real cost was being a poor example to my kids.

My friend, there are so many hidden costs to being out of shape and letting your health suffer.

The truth is I was making excuses.🎯

I could have made the time to still workout hard and eat right, but I choose to take the easy way out.

NO MORE!🙌

As humans, we can’t lie to ourselves.

We have to set higher standards and hold ourselves to them.

Let’s make it a great week!💪
