September Newsletter

Hey Welcome to my September Newsletter. I’m using this post as my newsletter this month because August got a little crazy. But it’s important to me to stay in touch with you so here it goes…

You may have noticed that I haven’t been creating as many blog posts, been as active on FaceBook or Twitter, or launched any cool new programs during the last month. Sometimes life throws an unexpected curve ball at you when you least expect it. And it happened to me this August.

Turns out the owner (I want to name names, but I won’t) of the fitness center where I deliver my super awesome fitness programs in Scottsdale AZ. hasn’t been paying his lease. I won’t go into the details but here is a brief overview.

  1. He told us, on August 1st,  he was negotiating his payment so that he/and we could stay.

  2. He said we should consider this our 30 day notice in case the landlord doesn’t agree to the changes.

  3. Everyone found somewhere else to work.

  4. Everyone except a few of us who decided to open our own place.

  5. The landlord agreed to the reduced lease payment.

  6. Because most of the trainers were leaving the owner decided to close anyway.

  7. We agreed to buy a significant percentage of his fitness equipment.

  8. The landlord caught wind that he was going to leave even after negotiating a new lease payment.

  9. The landlord wasn’t happy about this.

  10. On Friday, August 26th, the landlord locked him out. And took possession of the equipment that we were going to buy.

  11. We had 15 minutes to grab our personal items before the locks would be changed.

So 7am Friday morning I’m standing in a parking lot with my client. I’ve got nowhere to train and no equipment to train with. We’re about to sign a lease on our new place and we’re effectively out of business.

I scrambled to find a new place and I’m back up to speed as of yesterday morning (August 31st).  We’re still moving forward on opening our own place, but we’ve had to start from scratch.

Every once in a while some unexpected and seemingly bad things happen. And you can’t always control the situation. But you can control the way in which you react to the situation. Always! I just want you to know that I have some challenges in my life, just like you. Yes, your’s might be an ongoing struggle to lose weight or improve your fitness and mine isn’t. But we all experience challenges. And it’s how we react to these challenges that shapes the lives that we lead and who we are. It’s important for you to know that I understand.

While I was struggling with some uncertainty, this video showed up in my life. So I thought I’d share it with you, enjoy….
