Ten years ago today, Limitless Personal Training first opened its doors, originally as Limitless Specialized Core Fitness. After a name change and multiple location changes, we’ve been settled in the current location in Rohnert Park for the last 5 years.
Opening this studio ten years ago was a surreal experience and wouldn’t have been possible without all of the support from family and friends. Reflecting back on this time in my life, it’s interesting to think about the relationship between adversity and breaking new ground. This was a pretty tumultuous time in my life having gone through a breakup a few months prior, competing in jiujitsu seemingly every other weekend, and suffering a collapsed lung in a freak competition accident. I was in and out of the E.R. for a week or so and several more in recovery. This turned out to leave me with not much to do other than work on my Limitless business plans, and so, what seemed like a setback turned into a moment that really propelled my life forward professionally.
No doubt I’ve learned a lot when it comes to training clients in the last ten years. Looking back I feel like my skills were so much more rudimentary, from communication to business skills, even my understanding of training the body and nutrition have evolved immensely. I am a firm believer that if you’re not at least somewhat embarrassed by the version of you from ten years ago then that just means you’re not growing enough.
I’ve met so many people through Limitless. Some for only a week or two and many I still work with today several years later. I am always grateful that people decide to spend their time and money with me and all I can do in return is give as much value back as possible. Here’s to the next ten years!
