It’s hard to believe that as of this month, it’s been TEN YEARS since I started Holistic Health, my fitness and wellness business.
On Saturday, we’re having a big celebration. As I look forward to the party, I’ve been reminiscing about all the crazy things I’ve done over the years.
So, I thought it would be fun to share the “Top 10 Crazy Lessons” I’ve learned in a decade… hope it draws a smile or chuckle out of you today!
(Oh, and if you’re in my area, I’ve put together some crazy Anniversary deals, starting at $10.10, so be sure to check them out! Go to: 10YearsofMissFits.eventbrite.com)
Top 10 Crazy Lessons
YEAR #1: Don’t try to cram 60 minutes into 20.
Tried to do that when a client was really late. I almost killed her.
YEAR #2: Plan to have food at the end of a workout and everyone will show up.
Works every time! 😉 Saturday is your next opportunity to workout and EAT! RSVP HERE if you’d like to join us!
YEAR #3: CRAZY is what gets you on TV and in every local paper.
Check out last year’s segment on Fox31 with pumpkins and blow-up ponies. Pretty wild!
YEAR #4: Be prepared to train ANYONE in any condition.
Even if they show up in a leg cast. (Yup. That happened!)
YEAR #5: “Train the Trainer Day” gets much harder as you get older.
So don’t even plan it, announce it, or talk about it. I ended this event after the time I was challenged to do lunges up a hill, with a 12-year-old on my back!
YEAR #6: Only CRAZY people think fitness is “fun.”
I think I finally accepted the idea that most women don’t actually enjoy grueling workouts. Only the truly insane find gasping, sweating, and pushing themselves until their muscles cry for help…FUN.
YEAR #7: Be a Shoe Nazi.
Personal experience has taught me not to skimp on good shoes. Ladies have shown up with “Shape-ups,” shoes with no backs to them, and flip flops! Not gettin’ by me. Ever.
YEAR #8: Stop sharing my hatred of PINK.
Ladies will show up to our workouts in this most-despised-color just to spite me.
YEAR #9: I’ll make enemies if I tell you what you don’t want to hear.
Like “You can’t fool me and tell me that you’re only buying it for the kids.” You’re GOING to eat those goldfish – and probably finish off the bag – because they have cocaine in them. Stop the denial.
YEAR #10: “I’m getting too old for this” is a lie.
You’re only as old as your mindset. 🙂
There you have it! I’ve learned a LOT in a decade of owning a fitness and wellness business! Thanks for being part of my MissFits community!
Hope to see you at our Celebration on Saturday.
Committed to your success,
