What was your inspiration to become part of the fitness industry?

Each one of us has a story of how we got into the fitness industry.
For me, my inspiration was venturing into another field that I knew nothing about (other than enjoying the benefits of a gym membership AND having a great personal trainer) and to see what I could create for it (the gym software).

I am curious to find out what inspired you.
Does your inspiration come from another person in the field?
A loved one who benefits from your knowledge and expertise?
A general innate desire to help others?

I hope everyone is having a great week. I look forward to your responses and, always, learning more!
