Started my week off at the espys and finishing it off at the beach
Orangetheory fitness grand opening party! #otfla #otf LIVE IN THE ORANGE!
Pretty amazing day for me today. I am just pausing for a moment to reflect and give thanks to the powers that be for continually blessing me.
As some of you know I have teamed up with a fitness franchise that is sweeping the nation Orangetheory Fitness. My partners and I are first to market on Los Angeles and San Jose California. Orangetheory Fitness San Jose
Orangetheory Fitness Los Angeles
The last year has been spent growing our franchises. The last two weeks have been spent training the team, and a soft opening. We have not made one cent in fact we are in the hole seven figures plus. Of course there is a method to the madness and it takes money to make more money...... But finally after investing more sweat equity than money itself we are finally about to have our grand opening in San Jose on the 30th May and Los Angeles on the 7th of June. Our business model allowed us to be well in the green from day one, and within a year we will have paid ourselves back for our start up costs.
That means we finally get to start earning revenue and live the American dream of owning a successful sustainable business. There's nothing like working for yourself! The risk is greater but so is the reward. Just like playing in the NFL you are telling me I am going to make money doing something I love? Physical fitness has always been a passion of mine and now I get to transform people's lives, body, and mind.
Why is this all hitting me today more than any other day?
Well I woke up at 4:45 am. Grabbed a protein shake brushed my teeth and headed over to our studio in Brentwood. I didn't have any of my coaches working the 5:30 or 6:45 al classes. Aftermath of Memorial Day festivities I suppose. So I taught back to back classes around 40 members at my gym, a gym I use to be a members of. While I was a member I realized I needed to own several of these gyms and bring true health and fitness back to Cali the Mecca of health and fitness. A year later CHECK, done ( I don't use emoticons sorry).
Thank goodness I have my MBA from The George Washington University so I do have a little business savvy but I'm getting better each day.
So I finish the am classes and hurry home to take my daughter to school. Drop the little monster off (god bless teachers) and I grab the wife's car with a flat tire and drop it off to get fixed. I had to stop 3 times to put air in it. Yeah no spair. Go grocery shopping, pick the monster back up with my other little monster and drop her off at tennis. My 3 year old is potty training and he successfully used the toilet and no accidents today. Now every one is pooped out and I am just happy to be right here, right now, celebrating a little success, a small victory of many, an every day dad and a soon to come fitness empire in California.
