Since as far back as I can remember, I have always had an appreciation for physical fitness and larger than life heroes. My favorites were The Incredible Hulk, He-Man, and Bill Kazmaier (the World’s Strongest Man). But the biggest superhero to me was my dad, Maartin.
My father introduced me to weights at a young age and I have never looked back. Some of my best memories are lifting sessions with my dad. To me lifting/working out is more than just a means for physical transformation, it teaches you a lot of life lessons. Mental toughness, attitude, hard work and determination, but the most important one to me is work ethic. I learned that in life a lot of things are out of your control, but no one can control the amount of effort you put into work. That is what I love the most about working out. I will never be the strongest, fastest or smartest guy in the room, but I will always be the hardest working and to me, that means a lot. I am excited to share my passion with others and pass on what I have learned over the years.
What my father taught me will be what Family Fitness Time is all about. Hard work and family will be the foundation of my business as they are the two most important things to me. I truly believe that if you put in the work, good things will happen. It also helps to surround yourself with family (literal family and workout family). The late Jim Rohn said “we are a product of the five people we spend the most time with”. That quote really resonates with me. I have hung out with several knuckleheads in my day, all that does is get you nowhere fast. These days I just spend my time with my wife, children and my furry friend Mazie (who is always down for a good workout).
In short, I guess what I am saying is, if you value hard work and family then Family Fitness is for you. If you are willing to put in the hard work for your fitness goals, then your goals will become my goals and we will reach them together. As always, thanks for taking the time to read my blog and if you are looking for a fun new way to workout, lets get at it.
