Many of you know this, but some of you don’t, but I didn’t care at all about fitness until I was 31. I’ve never been athletic, coordinated, or exceptional at anything sport-related. I spent many years in a band honing a skill set and ignoring my health. I ate fast food for every meal and when I didn’t, it was cereal or pizzas out of a box. I ran into a guy who was 66 years old and he was talking about how he was going to watch his only son graduate high school that weekend. I did the math to realize he was 49 when he had him. It seemed irresponsible to me. I asked him why he did that; wasn’t he worried about not being around to see his son succeed and have a family of his own? He scoffed, almost insulted. “I’m fitter at 66 than I was when we had him. You don’t take care of yourself?” “I don’t have to, I’m skinny.” He rolled his eye intensely and uttered “you should start taking care of yourself if you want to live longer and enjoy the times you have on this earth longer.” It was incredibly sobering and kicked off a fitness pursuit filled with a number of stumbles and misdirection due to not having a guide.

Now I get to be the guide. It’s the greatest privilege in my life that you trust me and the other coaches at The Standard with your fitness development. It’s an honor to get to serve each of you and I hope all of you know how committed we are to providing you everything possible for you to live longer and enjoy your time here on Earth more. We study and critique and do our absolute best to have all of the tools to get you where you’re wanting to go. Thanks for allowing us to do that. Thanks for being a part of The Standard. We appreciate the support more than we could ever communicate. Thanks for making it a welcoming and encouraging place, thanks for not complaining, thanks for telling others we care and do a good job for our members. It’s a beautiful thing to behold, when I take the time to do it.

I’m looking forward to seeing all of you this week. If you need anything more than a great class experience, please don’t avoid asking for any reason. See you tomorrow!!
