A Youth Fitness Success Story – Part 1

Not only is Dave Gleason the current IYCA Trainer of the Year, he was also the very first Athletic Revolution franchisee.

 

Dave is in the process of writing a chronicle that explains how he and I met.

 

How he was highly successful and owned an extremely profitable Personal Training business.

 

But how the day he heard me make a presentation at a Fitness Conference in 2008 changed his life and business around completely.

 

How he risked everything… And won.

 

Read this carefully:

 

 

My 17-Year, Incredibly Successful and Profitable Career in the Fitness & Sports Training Industry Took a 180 Degree Turn 2 Years Ago… But My Personal Fulfillment, Bank Account & Future Have Never Been More Glorious…

 

"I was already making great money," I kept thinking to myself.

 

My schedule was set and my credibility in the marketplace completely secure.

 

It wasn’t always like that; I scratched, clawed and stressed for years before I finally hit it big and carved out the career I had always wanted.

 

But Brian was talking about more than just establishing a career.

 

He was talking about leaving a legacy.

 

Empowering a generation.

 

Becoming a difference maker in the lives of young people.

 

Shaping the future.

 

And that’s where the tug-of-war between my common sense intelligence and ‘what it’ emotions started their battle.

 

"Working with energetic and eager young people everyday," I thought.  My eyes now riveted to the stage.

 

Changing the fortunes and lives of kids who were overweight.  Guiding them from a place of isolation and depression into the endless world of opportunity.

 

Helping young athletes excel.  Improve their game.  Remain injury free.  Obtain an elusive college scholarship.

 

My emotions started to win and I knew, at very least, that a conversation with Brian was necessary.

 

Looking back, I think I was actually hoping that this conversation would snap me back to my senses

 

 

That’s pretty compelling stuff, isn’t it?

 

Where until you see where Dave’s story concludes!

 

I’ll email you that tomorrow.
