"Why did I get into the fitness industry?"Have you ever asked yourself that question? I think for most of us it wasn't dreams or expectations of fame, fortune, or the ability to coast in a cushy job for a few years. Most fitness pros I talk with say roughly the same thing: they want to inspire and help people get more physically active and healthier.
I have some clients that started on a nutrition plan to jump start their weight loss. They started together and have been doing great! I called this post "Circle of Power" because My friend/client used this term when she was talking about how we can affect each other to do our best, achieve our goals and motivate and inspire each other.. She was saying that I inspired her to start this nutrition plan, and she then inspired her friend to keep going when she was getting discouraged. She said, we were a "Circle of Power!" Thanks so true..
