Dear Fitness Professional,
We often think back to when we first decided to open Results Fitness. We were passionate, excited, and we knew how to train people and get great results; so we opened our gym! We can’t begin to tell you how quickly we became discouraged when we didn’t have a clue how to run a business.
There were so many times when we felt as if we were just spinning our wheels, getting nowhere. We were training clients from 5:30 in the morning until 8:00 at night. With no money in the bank to show for it, we were barely making ends meet, literally living from paycheck to paycheck.
One night, a few months after we opened our gym, we came home to our tiny apartment, which was a half an hour drive by freeway because we couldn’t afford to live near the gym, to find that our back door had been forced open and our home broken into. They stole our laptop, which had all of our clients’ programs and everything we had for the gym on it. On the bright side, there wasn’t anything else for them to steal because we didn’t have much – no money, no jewelry. But that laptop had everything on it! HELP!!!
Financially things were tough, yet our schedules were full, so we had to hire our first trainer. A few months after she began working for us she drove up in a new Ford Explorer. She excitedly ran into the gym and asked us to come and check out the stereo. At that time we were sharing a used Dodge Shadow my parents bought at auction and gave to us when we got married. It was at that moment, when she drove up in her brand new car that she bought with money we were paying her, we looked at each other and realized something was not working and we had to make a change!
THE MAJOR TURNING POINT …
We began to seek out information on how to run a business, and invested in books and continuing education. We attended seminars and started to learn everything we could. We realized that we were great trainers, but had to become smart business owners in order to succeed. Our bookshelf went from all training and nutrition books to, now, mostly business, marketing, sales, and financial books.
We went from spinning our wheels to having a systemized business that was generating income and helping hundreds of people to change their lives.
Our lives took another turn when “You have cancer” became a reality not once, but twice. Thankfully, with our systems in place, we were able to step out of our business to check into the hospital, while the gym continued to run without us. All of the steps we had taken to set up the business to not be dependent on us had worked! We hope you never have to face a life threatening disease like we did, but we will teach you the exact steps we took to get your business to a point where it can run without you.
People will often say to us, you’re successful because YOU WERE LUCKY … I wouldn’t call having your house broken into and being diagnosed with cancer, twice, lucky …
WE ARE SUCCESSFUL BECAUSE WE DID A FEW THINGS RIGHT
We made the mistakes so YOU don’t have to! Why not fast track your business, your life and your career? You cannot afford to NOT take advantage of this amazing opportunity.
