New Year, New Goals!
Similar to last week, I featured Amy Meyer who had lost 130 pounds all because she took time to set goals, but then followed through with them.
This week I wanted to feature Strawn Wilson, a personal trainer in North Carolina. After speaking with him about the reasons behind goal setting, I thought everyone could benefit from hearing the reason and purpose behind what he does. All of humanity is motivated by something. It could be for a gold medal, money, recognition, and the list goes on. But the most successful trainers are motivated deep within. They have a PASSION for the people they invest in and they truly want to help. This is why I wanted to feature Strawn. His drive to succeed goes deeper than money. He invests in them because his heart is rooted in Christ. He loves his clientele and wants to see them healthy and happy. He understands they have one life, one body, and desires to be the man who brings out their fullest potential. His clients are his ministry. God gives us all gifts and the way he is able to relate to them all is amazing! Every single workout, is as if it were his last... He gives his very best. Read learn more about him and the reason for setting goals!
