Reflecting on 8 years of gym ownership and entrepreneurship.
I started this thing 8 years ago to help people. I latched onto this idea years ago looking up to my hero my uncle. He always seemed to be helping others out. So I jumped two feet in and started one person at a time.
The ups and downs of gym ownership are real and legit. The stress is significantly high almost all the time. Two friends, fellow gym owners had heart attacks and one died this year. Scary! There have been times this year including this month I wonder why I keep going and keep sacrificing. I have lost more personally then I care to admit but I keep showing up and keep swinging that hammer.
What I have learned after 8 years is that I’m resilient I can survive where others will and have failed. I don’t always know how but I always make it work to keep the doors open to provide a place to help anyone willing to get better.
What I have really learned is that have helped and inspired people. I know it’s shocking but sometimes I doubt myself. Gotta Trust Ryan more I guess...Anyway. I have made people’s life tremendously better. I have inspired others to go on to open up there own gyms and extend their own branch of helping people. I have inspired people to ask for that promotion, to be better parents, to be better spouses, to be better athletes, to be better coaches, to be healthier, to be happier, to be better.
To sum it up, I’m glad I get to help and inspire each and everyone of you. I never thought in a million years that I would have the impact I have had on many of lives that have walked through the doors of Intrepid. I hope to continue helping and inspiring people to be better for many, many years to come.
