Monday Mindset – Man in the Arena 150 150 Bryce Henson

Monday Mindset – Man in the Arena

Happy Monday! 🙌

I came across one of my favorite poems this weekend by Theodore Roosevelt entitled “Man in the Arena”. 🏟

I was inspired so I included it below as it’s a reminder of the value of effort, persistence, and passion in pursuing your dreams towards a noble cause. 💯

I trust will inspire you just as much as it has done for me…👇

“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. 

The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again because there is no effort without error and shortcoming. 

But who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows, in the end, the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”

Let’s make it a great week! 👊

Monday Mindset – The Foundation & Focus of a billionaire.. 1024 768 Bryce Henson

Monday Mindset – The Foundation & Focus of a billionaire..


Happy Monday! 🙌

This past weekend was very special.

Well over 300+ owners and coaches attended our Fit Body Annual World Conference hosted in Scottsdale, Arizona including my wife Tatiana, Coach Jake & John, and Blake (our internal Vice President).

We also had an action-packed lineup of speakers which consisted of our Founder Bedros Keuilian and our Franchise Business Coaches. Our business coaches are the most successful owners of the brand along with 1 outside keynote Jesse Itzler.

Their focus was to provide education on how to create an even better fitness program for you and our global clients.

I also had the opportunity to give 2 keynotes and MC the event as well.

Which meant for the first time ever in my life, I can say I shared the stage with a billionaire. Surreal.

Jesse’s message?

Money is an important tool in life. 💯

But it’s only a tool and not life itself.

As all the money in the world cannot buy 1) time or 2) deep relationships with loved ones, which are the 2 most important things in life.

In fact, he would trade all his wealth for the opportunity to spend more time with his father who recently passed away from Alzheimer’s.

My biggest takeaway for you? 💥

Fitness does not have to be the focus of your entire life.

However, it does need to be the foundation. ✅

As without fitness, you don’t have a foundation to spend time with & serve your family, friends, loved ones, and community.

This approach has served Jesse well and will for you too. 👊

Ahh, and here is a little recap of the experience:

Monday Mindset – Yorba Linda Farewell 1024 1024 Bryce Henson

Monday Mindset – Yorba Linda Farewell

Happy Monday! 🙌

Tatiana and I fought back the tears as we coached last sessions at Yorba Linda Fit Body on Saturday. A journey that started over a decade ago. 🥲


This is so we can focus on our Mission Viejo location and the entire Fit Body brand which is a big lift as you would imagine.

And as you would expect, it was an emotional morning saying “see you later” to all our family and friends we have made throughout the years. 😭

After each session, I provided a moment of gratitude and brief origin story with these 3 takeaways that I trust you will get value which is my message today: 👇

  1. Pursue your dreams. Life is too short to live with regret (which you will have without action). You have 1 crack at this game, make it count and don’t waste any time. 💯
  2. Challenge yourself and push your limits. Do hard things. Comfort is a slow, painful deal. On the contrary, challenge creates fulfillment. 👊
  3. Surround yourself with amazingly positive people that lift you up. Your network is your net WORTH (in fitness and finances). That’s been the simple formula for Tatiana and my success. 

For a fuller recap, here’s my sign off message from my social media sites.

Let’s make it a GREAT week!

Monday Mindset – Some BIG takeaways from a LITTLE lady 720 960 Bryce Henson

Monday Mindset – Some BIG takeaways from a LITTLE lady

Happy Monday!

I am pleased to share that my niece Ravenna was brought into the world this Thursday morning at just over 6lbs. 

She’s tiny and is named after a beautiful city in the north of Italy next to the Adriatic Sea. 🌊

And it’s these big life moments that stop and really make you think. 🤔

They also put things in perspective. 

As I met her yesterday morning, these thoughts kept passing through my mind. 👇

  • Life is precious & beautiful.  
  • It’s also very delicate and fragile.
  • It’s an absolute gift that should be celebrated.

My friend, you and I have 1 trip around this globe. We must live it to the fullest. Here are some takeaways to make your week and life better inspired by Ravenna. 👇

  • Move your body daily.
  • Nourish yourself with good nutrition and hydration.
  • Explore the world.
  • Start that passionate based business you have been dreaming about (even as a side hustle to start)
  • Take calculated risks. 
  • Live Boldy.

After all, the road less traveled leads to fulfillment. 💯

Monday Mindset – 2 Lessons from my nephew Ryder… 150 150 Bryce Henson

Monday Mindset – 2 Lessons from my nephew Ryder…

I hope you had a nice Easter Weekend. 🐣

Mine was fantastic as it was the first time I was around children in a very long time to celebrate.

My brother Barrett was also in town, who is the Director of Coaching and Profitability for our brand. We had some business meetings last week and timed it so we could visit our sister Emma and our nephew Ryder on Saturday & Sunday late afternoon.

And speaking of Ryder.. 👦🏼

The little man is 18 months old and a tank. He’s high on life, has tons of energy, and is seemingly interesting in every little thing he notices. 

And in spending some time with him, I picked up 2 lessons from him that you will get value from. 👇

  1. After swimming with him, playing with him, chasing and walking with him, it occurred to me how present he is. Yes, he does believe he is the center of the universe which is a core tenant of human nature and something we should all be aware of. 

But his absolute presence is incredibly powerful as his whole universe is the 3 feet directly in front of him. That’s it. 

No other worries or competing thoughts. His entire focus wrapped up in the 3 feet directly in front of his nose. 

He’s there, completely engaged in the immediate.  Powerful. 💥

  1. The 2nd lesson is his sheer persistence and willingness to get back up again and again, and again, and yet again after he falls.

    His unwavering relentlessness is something to note, applaud and learn from. As no matter how many times he falls, he keeps pressing forward with seemingly even more enthusiasm the next time. 

So, there you have it!

Being 1) completely present and 2) absolutely relentless in your pursuits are your 2 lessons from Ryder this week which will set you up for more success in your fitness and life.  💪

Monday Mindset – Change: the only constant 150 150 Bryce Henson

Monday Mindset – Change: the only constant

Yesterday, I just shared the news of Tatiana and I transitioning out of ownership at our first location of Yorba Linda Fit Body effective today.

This is so we can focus more consolidated energy on overseeing our Mission Viejo Fit Body location with a consolidated local team focus. And so that I can also have more time to oversee the Fit Body brand as your CEO.

This is a win for everyone. 💯

Tatiana will still be on-site in Yorba Linda through the end of April to ensure a strong transition before she transitions more support to our MV team. As we are passing the ownership torch to 2 beautifully inspiring ladies in Coach Ari and Andria Lopez who will pour the clients, team, and location for years to come

Below is my Monday Mindset sendoff message to Yorba Linda this morning and know you will get value from the takeaway as well about embracing and driving change being the only constant in life. 

PS Tatiana and I are excited to be able to spend more time with you beginning in May!

It was a cold, dark, and rainy morning on November 5, 2012. This is when we opened the doors of Yorba Linda Fit Body for the very first time.

I had just spent the last 2 years abroad on the little island of Florianopolis, Brazil where I met and lived with Tatiana and her family. 🏝

A few months earlier I had just returned to Orange County to lay the foundation for our little fitness/boot camp business that would eventually become Yorba Linda Fit Body.

Tatiana arrived on Halloween and just a few days prior to launch, as we sorted out her visa paperwork just in time for our Grand Opening (if you could even call it that).

We knew our country’s overall health and obesity problem was getting worse by the year which this passion was matched by the inspiration from our own physical transformations a few years prior.

So, we decided to invest our life savings in this little dream to help our community in Yorba Linda get healthy and fit. 💪

We opened that cold, dark, and rainy morning in November with four walls, some mats, and no equipment as we couldn’t afford it. The lighting was poor, and the location looked extremely different than the fully stocked facility we now call home.

We put every dollar we had into the lease and all the upfront costs that come with any business endeavor so didn’t have much financial breathing room to spend on “frills”.

I also asked my sister Emma who was living in LA at the time to join the full list of sessions to “make the sessions look fuller”.

My friends Leslie and Bo, who are still members, were there and we started the session by sharing our gratitude list.

Candidly, I was so scared to be running those first sessions.

Actually, “terrified” is the more accurate word. 😱

But at the same time, I was incredibly excited to be supporting people in their health and fitness journey, because fitness touched Tatiana and my life so deeply.

Fast forward, nearly a decade, and never would I have ever imagined the blessings that would occur from that start. The friendships, deep relationships, and the incredible community we would bring together.

What a spectacular ride and I can say honestly and humbly, Tatiana and I couldn’t have asked for nothing more. In fact, I’m in tears as I write this..

This in mind, life has its seasons and it’s now the season for these 2 new amazing, beautiful women in Andria and Ari to take over the mission of Inspiring Fitness & Changing Lives Every Day in our Yorba Linda community with their teams support, as it still continues and even stronger than ever!

Tatiana and I want to thank you deeply for your love, your support, and contribution to our little dream. In return, we hope we have provided you with immense value whether you have been with us for 9 years or days. ❤️

And rest assured, that the best is yet to come. As I am here with a reminder that change is the only constant in life which is today’s message.

Instead of running from it, we must embrace it as it’s the only thing constant in life! This concept is so important, especially in the transformation business, and why we have made “Embracing and Driving Change” a global Fit Body core value.

Rest assured, Tatiana and I are on-site to support for the next few weeks and will be excited to deliver our last training session on the mic on Saturday, April 30 as we transition out of ownership. And past that, we are excited to continue to hear of your ongoing success as you are in very good hands with Andria, Ari, and our team as we want to stay connected.

You will begin hearing from Coach Ari next week and will leave you with this quote. 👇

“The secret of change is to focus all of your energy not on fighting the old, but on building the new.” -Socrates

Love and incredible gratitude,

-Coach Bryce

Monday Mindset – The Hidden Cost.. 150 150 Bryce Henson

Monday Mindset – The Hidden Cost..

I read this recently and wanted to share as it’s oh-so-true as I know you will get value!

  • A Big Mac does NOT cost $3.99.  It costs your health. 🍔
  • Netflix does NOT cost $17.99. It costs your time. ⏱️
  • Social media does NOT cost $0. It costs your attention and focus. 📱

Remember.. ✅

There is ALWAYS a hidden cost to everything.

Be intentional and choose wisely. 

Much love and respect,

-Coach Bryce

Monday Mindset – The Battle Against Obesity 150 150 Bryce Henson

Monday Mindset – The Battle Against Obesity

Happy Mindset Monday! 

While COVID continues and always will like any virus, it’s clear the cases and emotions are fading which will allow more data and facts to be brought to the forefront for us to review. ✅

And for as much as the media made COVID a giant focus over the last 2 years..

One thing that I find very interesting as a fitness professional, is that there was very little discussion about the root issue of the bigger concern from a health & fitness perspective.

Aside from the elderly, the obese were by far the most affected. 😥

In fact, I just read an article stating that 78% of hospital visits and severe reactions including death from COVID were sadly from people suffering from obesity. 💯

From my fitness professional perspective, I think that was a big, missed opportunity for the media not to put major attention on the root issue especially for all the fear that was spread. 

As from a statistical perspective, more people died due to Obesity during the last 2 years, which was also at the root of most of the COVID issues so a compounded problem. 😳

So the fact remains that there is still a big health problem in our country at the root of this and other sicknesses as obesity compromises the immune systems of those affected. 💯

This is exactly why have created our world-famous Fit Body Transformation Challenges. As they focus on mindset, nutrition, coaching, community, results, and weight loss.

And since launching brand-wide in 2019, we have shed over 100,000 lbs. collectively as a brand. And 25,000 inches and 17,000 lbs. dropped alone specifically from our last Fall Challenge.

So, we are beyond excited for the momentum to continue as we begin our Spring Challenge this coming Monday, March 28!

If you didn’t see the story Yahoo News picked up earlier this year, give it a look that tells the bigger story.

If you need some mindset, nutrition, and fitness coaching with some community and fun competition, our Spring Challenge is for you.

Make it a great week!

Monday Mindset – Hitler & JFK 150 150 Bryce Henson

Monday Mindset – Hitler & JFK

Happy Monday!!
I received the below message recently from my business partner, and founder of Fit Body, Bedros Keuilian. And with all the craziness continuing in the world, it made me stop and think.
Since I got the value I wanted to share it with you in hopes it will do the same for you. 👇
I read a lot of stuff… stuff that many people would find weird or strange. 🤓
Recently I was reading about Hitler and how he got into power, stayed in power, and got support for the genocide of six million Jews from millions of his citizens.
You’d wonder how people would allow that to happen right❓
You’d wonder why no one in Germany tried to stop him, right?
It’s simple really and the answer is found in two quotes… one from Hitler and the other from John F Kennedy.
HITLER: “I use emotion for the many and reason for the few.”
Hitler learned early on that people are emotional and reactive. Only a few are reasonable or logical. So, he realized that if he could control a person’s emotions then he could predict their reaction.
One of the most effective ways to make people emotional is to incite FUD (fear, uncertainty, and doubt). ☑️
FUD is still used today on the masses to gain control and compliance – almost like mind control.
Want an example?
Just flick on the mainstream news and very easy to see this in real-time.
A lesson?
If you want to free yourself of this mind control then learn to control and manage your emotions. React less. Respond more. 💯
Emotional people REACT. Reasonable people RESPOND.
Those who tend to react put the power in the hands of others. Those who respond hold the power and control.
John F Kennedy said: “Conformity is the jailer of freedom and the enemy of growth”.
Emotionally charged people conform quickly and lose their freedoms and grow weaker.
To recap, the lesson here is this…
1. Take control of your emotions and you’ll become uncontrollable.
2, Respond and don’t react.
3. Fear, uncertainty, and doubt are the enemy of freedom and growth.
Here’s to an amazing week ahead team! 🙌
Much love and respect,
-Coach Bryce
