What Brought you to Relentless Fitness?
My journey to Relentless Fitness certainly wasn’t a straightforward one!
I’m not a career athlete, although I certainly dreamed of being one. Sadly it wasn’t in the cards and my aspirations of being Steve Nash ended just like Woody Harrelson’s in White Men Can’t Jump. My adolescence was spent as a slightly chubby kid who was self conscious about taking his shirt off at the pool.
While pursuing a degree and career in business and finance, I received an informal education in exercise and nutrition. I realized for the first time that I could change my body. This was as important to me as the invention of the Internet. Over time my passion for physical transformation grew, and I eventually left my Wall Street career in 2007 to pursue greener pastures. It was a youthful, naive, and likely stupid decision, but somehow these things have a way of working out.
I began a personal training career at Society Hill PSC in 2008 and launched Relentless Fitness (version 1.0) as a home-to-home and outdoor training company in 2009.
My partner Marissa and I created Relentless Fitness as you know it today together in 2010, merging our adult and kid programs. Over the past 5 years we’ve grown, our team (more like family) has grown, and our community (more like extended family) has exploded. I’m proud of the past and even more excited to create our relentless future.
What Does Fitness mean to you?
It means empowerment. It means that regardless of where you stand today, you have the ability to create a different (and better) tomorrow.
Fitness is a vehicle to physical transformation and a means to stand taller, feel better, and perform in a way you never thought capable. It’s a way of life, and if you approach it relentlessly you’ll be rewarded tenfold.
