@ the age of 22 I was given the opportunity to become a fitness manager with #24hourfitness after starting at the front desk and working my way up over the 3 years prior. 6 months after receiving another promotion and being transferred to the famous #shermanoaksgalleria #24hourfitness by @joeyrooster, this guy @moduvated walks into the gym and ask to see the fitness manger. At this time I managed a staff of 45 trainers and nearly 40 of them were much more tenured, had many more certifications then me and they all hadvery strong personalities that carried weight. Needless to say, as a athlete my entire life rather then a kinesiology major I was frowned upon by many of my employees so it was a challenge getting others to follow my lead. So Modu and I meet for 20/30 min and he shared that he had his MBA in computer science and had a great salary but hated his work, had no gratification in doing it and would do anything to change it and find a new career path. I told him on the spot I’d hire him the next day as long as he brought all his right paper work. It took about 1 month to get Modu hired, sent through the in house certification and trained to do the basics around the club. During that month he shadowed myself, my man @mankosmods. We’d work out with folk like @rick_tha_ruler @erictheramster @mr_tenner & @sirtenner. And this did nothing more but mold and shape us both with great minds to share knowledge and learn from. Within Modu’s first 6 months he took over the game in the gym and had one of the largest client bases along with great sales accomplishments month over month. By the end of Modu’s first year he had made some great clients, one who planned to move to Cabo and asked Modu to join along. The story goes that Modu promised the guy 1 week, the client offered 1 month and Modu never returned to Cali. Fast forward to today, @moduvated trains almost any and all A list celebrities that come to Cabo and his private list of clients are some of your favorite tv personalities or sports stars.
Hard work, Dedication, determination, and the will to succeed is all we need. Much Luv. #7percenter #inspireothers
