Summer is officially here and many good things are on the horizon. We just finished our Spring Challenge and results are being tallied!
We also have our Fit Body Annual conference this weekend in Scottsdale Arizona after a miss last year due to COVID.
And after a tough 2020, this conference is much needed and will be an incredible training event with nearly 400 attendees from North America registered.
We also made the decision to invest and bring our Facility Leaders and some coaches. So this will mean better training, coaching, and programming for you as we look ahead to serve you and our community at a higher level.
And with this in mind, I am reminded of the power and importance of investing in yourself.
As a first in my early years of business ownership and humbling myself, I was very hesitant to invest in extra training or reduce boot camp hours when needed. This was due to the time, financial resources, and due to the “short term pinch for clients and business”.
However what I realized with time, is that when we do invest in our team (even though short term it’s uncomfortable), long term we are able to provide you MUCH better service. And this directly equates to better coaching and results for you and our community.
This same investment mindset is what has made our locations some of the best in the country and certainly strong enough to endure COVID when 40% of the industry has vanished.
So that is exactly my message to you today.
Just like investing into the conference the expenses of logistics for a big team; working out and eating clean is an investment. It does take time, energy, and money to invest in you.
And if you don’t make the investment in yourself… then you cannot serve your family, friends, and co-workers at the highest level possible.
So my call to action today is to take a step back. Realize and accept that investing in yourself is a GOOD thing and it’s NOT selfish. Yes, it’s uncomfortable in the short term to sacrifice time and money.
But when you do, you will have the strength, stamina, and energy to be of more service and value to your loved ones.
And to me, that’s a life well-lived.
