Pros so we can help take back the online fitness industry.
Guys, it seems like everybody I’ve talked to at least recently
is stressed out, overwhelmed, unfulfilled, unsatisfied, and
just generally kind of miserable with life right now.
They’re just kind of existing, and they’re just going through
I’m questioning whether they should even be doing this right
now. Is it even worth it?
And if those are some of the thoughts that are going through
your head, I want to share some of the reasons what I have
found to be the case, and kind of just honestly, one big
one. We’ll go into more of this detail in other episodes,
and we’ve talked about this before, but what I have found
is you either have or have not set goals, which we talk all
about with our outfit clients.
Setting your F six goals, which that’s goals for your faith,
your family, your finances, your fitness, your friends and
They have set those goals, but they really haven’t built
any habits around their life to make those goals come to
light. Or they haven’t even taken the time to set those goals.
So I’m going to tell you a quick version right now, and you
can argue me.
I think I’ll Hocus Pocus or whatever, but I’d say it’s been
the true truth for my life, for my wife’s life, and for our
friends, family, colleagues and clients that actually see
You’re going to feel lost and unsatisfied and confused.
If you don’t have goals set and you don’t have a plan of
where you’re going, you’re gonna feel lost.
If you don’t have a map, you’re gonna feel lost.
If you don’t have any direction, you have to set these goals,
guys. And even deeper down into that, you got to set those
goals in those six areas.
Because I’ve seen so many people crush it to where maybe
finances are really good.
They have a lot of fun, and maybe they even take care of
themselves, and they’re crushing it in those areas.
But their faith, their family and their friends, they’ve
lost or even, let’s say, the big one, like, let’s say they’re
crushing it in every area of their life, but they’re missing
They’re still going to always be searching for something.
They’re crushing it and everything in their life.
But they’re unhealthy and they’ve lost their fitness.
They are crushing it in every area life.
And this is the one that I honestly, unfortunately see so
often, especially in the fitness industry, they’ve lost their
family. They’re spending all their time in the gym opening,
closing. We know the game, guys.
It’s a split shift job.
You’re doing sessions in the morning, sessions at night,
and you’re missing out on time with your family.
Unless you have goals, concrete, specific goals set in these
six areas of your life, you will lead an unfulfilled, unsatisfied
life. That’s just plain and simple.
So step one is you actually have to take the time and set
goals in those six areas of your life and your faith, your
family, your finances, your fitness, your friends and your
fun. I’ll share a little bit of some smaller, shortterm goals
for myself that I thought I’ll share with you guys, because
I’m also a big believer.
Don’t post all your goals on social media.
Don’t tell everybody all your goals, especially if they’re
really big goals, because if people can’t see those goals
happening for themselves, they will put your goals down.
But you could never do that.
Or, oh, that’s too big.
You shouldn’t set such big goals.
And don’t let anybody tell you how big your goals.
If they’re too big, just because they can’t see it for themselves,
that’s why they’re thinking that I had somebody tell me this
one time which kind of was an eye opening moment.
I was down because I shared something that I was working
on with some colleagues and like, oh, that’s too big.
That’s never going to work for you.
And then I had one of my very successful clients tell me
something. One time he said, you know, you’re never going
to be criticized by your goals, by somebody that’s more successful
I was like, That’s actually pretty accurate and true in this
situation. And I’ve seen it come time and time again that
you’re never criticized by somebody that’s doing better than
you. It’s always by people that are hurting themselves and
they can’t see it for themselves.
And so they’re attacking you.
So step one guy is I would encourage you.
You have to set goals in each one of those areas of your
life. Now, with doing this, I will add a caveat.
Think that for me, how I’ve done it is I have big picture,
like legacy goals in those six areas of life.
I know the type of lifestyle that I want to have at the end
of my life.
I personally find it really difficult to set like five year
goals, like one year.
Like quarterly goals, annual goals.
I can check that out.
But guys, five years you can make.
Especially like if you’re new into this entrepreneurial journey,
you can make some epic strides in five years.
Five years ago I was a broke personal trainer, gym owner
that was literally losing money each month to my gym struggling
to bring home for my family $3,000 a month, $36,000 a year.
And it wasn’t even real money because I was having to take
out a loan to pay myself to go to work every day.
It was stupid.
That is insane how far we’ve come now.
So we’re now working from home.
I have a very successful business being able to pull in seven
figures. Hey buddy, with just working online, guys that never
would have even thought was possible for myself just five
So that being said, that’s for me personally.
But like quarterly goals, annual goals absolutely have to
And then for me, I have legacy lifetime goals.
Just because that way it helps me to just always guide my
direction for everywhere that I’m going.
Once you set those goals because you need that, because that’s
always your roadmap to check everything against just to make
sure you’re going the right way.
However, you will not see these goals become a reality unless
you take the time to then create systems and habits that
occur daily again, daily, every day to make those things
happen. You are not just going to fall into success.
It’s not just going to be an accident.
I don’t know if anybody that just said, well, you know, I
just woke up one day and I was just successful.
We got my son here hanging out with this.
You alright buddy?
Look at this guy.
This guy got a hair cut.
He’s looking fresh.
Say what’s up?
And if you guys are listening, you need to watch on YouTube
so you can see how good looking this guy is.
So anyway, you’ve got to have those habits that drive your
goals that you’re trying to do.
So this is an example what I’ll take you through.
For example, I have faith goals, right?
I have this legacy that I want to leave for my children.
I want to better understand my faith.
I’m a Christian.
I want to understand what the Bible says.
I want to understand what it means for me to lead my family.
So part of my legacy is leaving this faith based Christian
life for my family.
That’s not just going to happen by accident.
That means I’m going to have to make daily habits in order
to make that goal of reality.
So my daily habit is the very first part of my day is spin
outside on the back porch doing a devotion and prayer time.
That’s the only way it’s going to happen.
Guys, for my family goals, I want to have a really close
relationship with my family.
I want us to be able to spend time together.
I want us to be able to have be able to go see have lunch
with the kids at school.
I want to be able to pick them up from school everyday.
I want to be able to take them to school every day because
I get some freedom from working at home.
I want us to be able to travel together and have these fun,
epic memory vacations as a family.
That’s not just gonna happen.
I have to.
Oh, you can’t touch that, buddy.
What that’s gonna require me to do is to block out time on
my schedule to make those things happen.
I’m not just going to accidentally make family time.
It doesn’t happen.
I have to block that out on my schedule each week for family
fun night where we’re gonna go get a pizza, watch a movie
or something like that.
Finance goals, guys, I’m not just going to show up and wake
up one day.
A multi millionaire.
It doesn’t happen.
So I’ve got certain finance goals that I do each and every
week. He’s getting a little stir crazy each and every week
to make sure that I’m saving enough money and investing them
in the right things.
He’s getting all over the place.
I’m getting crazy.
He might hit the power button.
Okay, other things to think about, guys, fitness.
I want to look better naked for my wife.
I’m not just going to wake up and look better.
I have to put in the time for that daily habit of fitness.
It just doesn’t happen.
Guys friend goals.
I don’t want to get to the end of my life and be lonely.
I want to do life with some amazing people.
So this is the one that honestly out of all of them is the
most difficult for me because even though I am super loud
and public and Everythingand, I post lots of content and
stuff online and everything.
I’m actually very, very private person and I just love just
being with my wife and my kids sitting on the back porch
staying at home.
I’m actually a very reserved home body type person.
This is the biggest reach for me is the last two is friends
So I have started this new thing for myself because I’ve
always said like, oh man, I want us to have these amazing
I want us to do life with all these amazing, great people,
raise our kids together and have some awesome close friends
that I could just be vulnerable with and share and grow together.
That’s not just going to happen.
I realized that.
So for me, I’ve got friend day Friday.
So for me, every Friday I have created and I’m building the
habit to where I am going to do a workout with a buddy.
I’m going to go for a run, meet them for coffee, take them
out for lunch.
Courtney and I go out to dinner and do a double date with
Have another family over to our house.
US go to another family’s house.
That just people that we just want to connect with and socialize
with, because that’s the only way that it’s going to happen.
And the last one is fun.
This was the one that was a struggle for me for the longest
time because it was just work, work, work, work.
I’m doing this work and everything so I can better serve
and provide for my my family and I never let up and have
I’ve got my fun goal right now is hiking and getting my pilot’s
license. So I’ve got a trip in a couple of weeks, I’m gonna
go kind of outing with a group of guys that kind of checks
off the friend goal as well.
And then also, it’s a group from this Church.
So it’s the faith goal as well.
So kill lots of birds with that one, which I’m really excited
about. I’m super pumped about hiking and everything.
I’ve been getting, like, hardcore nerdy with it and then
flying. I always want to get my pilot’s license out who sought
to be so much fun.
And so one day, my wife just finally said, You’ve been talking
about this forever.
Just shut up and go do it and did it.
And several hours into that and having a blast doing it.
I say all that, guys, because now I have created a life and
a schedule that serves me and my goals too often.
What I see people do is they just build a business that becomes
a prison that pays and it doesn’t actually serve them.
They take all their issues that they had, especially in fitness
with running their in person business, doing sessions in
person, and they create the same problems for themselves
in an online environment.
If you guys take the time to actually do this seriously and
write down the goals that you actually want, not that somebody
else wants, not that you think you’re supposed to have because
they’re going to be different for everybody.
They should be different.
They might be influenced by things that you heard, other
people like, man, that’s the kind of life I would like to
live, but they shouldn’t be.
Copycat goals, then take time to create the habits around
them. The third missing element, guys, is then take ownership
of your schedule.
How you build those habits as you block them into your weekly
schedule because you will not just find time.
If you ask everybody how they’re doing, they’re busy, they’re
stressed, they’re overwhelmed.
They got too much to do.
It’s not going to happen unless you make it happen, guys.
So that is what I encourage you guys to do.
Take a big, deep breath and write down these F six goals.
If you scroll back a couple of weeks back, guys we did a
whole episode were going to the F six goals a little bit
After you have that, guys create micro habits that you can
do each day or at least each week that will start reaching
you towards those F six goals for the short term.
And then the big epic goals for the life that you want to
But then you also have to make sure guys, that is consistent
and you’re disciplined about doing it and you plug it into
your weekly schedule.
All those things that I just told you guys are in my weekly
schedule, my morning devotion time and pray your time is
it my weekly schedule?
My fitness is plugged into my weekly schedule.
My family time is plugged into my weekly schedule.
Plugged into my weekly schedule.
All those things, guys, flight lessons are plugged into my
Some people think, oh, that’s weird.
That’s too much.
You have no freedom and you’re like, no, no.
I actually have complete control over my life, and I’m not
just being reactive to it.
I’m taking action because I want to live a life of intention.
I am intentional about blocking time with my family.
I’m intentional about blocking time for my health.
If you’re not intentional about those things, guys, you’re
just going to be living a life of mediocrity and you’re gonna
continue to be unsatisfied, unfulfilled, and just feel like
