You Know What's Scary....? (the post i didn't post)
I’m 29 years old and I feel lost. I work with great people and the job is… fine… but I don’t have that fire in my belly to do the best I can – which I HATE myself for! I put in 30% of what I'm capable of at my actual job right now because I know exactly what I need to do and how to do it.. I'm not challenged and I don’t seek out to be pushed – and that’s how I know I need to pursue all this.. my real passion and dream!!
At 29 we’re “supposed” to be settled and have things figured out - I see colleagues at work that are fine with this 9-5 office life and good for them; it's just not me.
I used to work in events and LOVED it, however I wanted to have a “normal” life with a 9-5 job..! Be careful what you wish for!! Events, particularly weddings (which was the field I was in) was of course pretty much every weekend. I wanted a chance to meet someone and settle down, which I thought would be easier with an office job…. But LOL at that!!!!! I have the most dramatic and "LOL" love life of anyone I know but I'm pretty happy with my life and i'm the most independent person thankfully!!
I was lucky enough to get three months free rent at my gym to start my Personal Training business.. I’ve been qualified for 2 years but never really took my Level 3 to start a PT business; it more for my own training and knowledge (I’m one of them people who if I’m going to do something I’m passionate about, I want to know all about it as integrity is one of my biggest values). I had been teaching classes (kettlebells & spin.. 6.15pm on Tuesdays and 7pm on Thursdays at NRG Gym in Watford *plug*) for two years since I became a PT purely because I absolutely loved it, and somehow, despite not loving speaking in front of a big group of people, training people in a big crowd doesn’t scare me at all, in fact I thrive in it!! (Despite the occasional swear word and overshare with my class oops!!)
So when the opportunity came up to start PTing, and with the support and kind words of basically everyone I encounter about how they believe I would be great at it.. GK Fitness began!!
