blog

Sep 15

October of 2017 will mark Get You In Shape’s 10th Year Anniversary of starting the Get You In Shape fitness program in Coppell.

Although Get You In Shape was “born” in 2006 
 (see previous blog post here), we are celebrating 10 Years of the Coppell Fitness program.

I have added a few lessons I’ve learned along the way that hopefully will give you more insight to the journey it’s been but also help give you some wisdom.

“What are lessons learned from 10 years of being in business?”


Over the next ​few weeks, I will share 10 lessons learned in 10 Days. Today is Lesson #3.

Lesson #3
“Small, Smart Choices + Consistency + Time = RADICAL DIFFERENCE” – If you read how Get You In Shape came to be (link here), Get You In Shape was NOT a success overnight. It was an accumulation of years of hard work that prepared me to be ready for when I actually did start Get You In Shape. 

I love this quote from Darren Hardy. Get You In Shape’s success over the last 10 years came with YEARS of Small, Smart Choices, Consistently ​Over Time!

It’s been a small and steady journey that began from an early age. When Get You In Shape started in 2006 (the first Coppell fitness session was October of 2007) it was a combination of years of small, smart choices and consistency of growing myself.

​I call this sharpening my sword. Although, I did not necessarily know what GOD had in store for me, I stayed the course and kept going. When the Get You In Shape Coppell Fitness program started, all the years of Small, Smart Choices, Consistency and Time just came together perfectly to allow Get You In Shape to grow FAST. Mainly, because all the work had already been done before October of 2007.

​That first month we started only 5 clients at 5:30am during the month of October of 2007. Because of the small and consistent effort over the ​ years preparing me, it quickly grew. ​
After 6 months, that one 5:30am session had added a 8am session and two evening sessions along with serving over 60 clients.​
​After 18 month, we now offered a 5:30am, 6:30am, 8am, 12pm and two evening times while helping more than 100 clients. 
​Now, after 10 Years, we have served well over 5,000 people throughout the years through all of our services. 
​The Coppell Get You In Shape Fitness program now serves over 150 clients each month. ​

​You could not make this growth up but I attribute most of it to all the years prior to 2007 preparing me, getting me ready to serve people and me choosing to make ​Small, Smart Choices, Consistently ​Over Time!

​This Lesson also applies to our clients as they come to us wanting to look better, feel better and perform better. Many of them want results YESTERDAY but have to understand that it's going to be a journey and process of making ​Small, Smart Choices Consistency Over Time to make a RADICAL DIFFERENCE. 


It's important to understand that if you truly to want to LIVE the lifestyle that you DESIRE you are going to start making smarter (HEALTHIER) chooses today, tomorrow, a week from now, a month from now, six months from now, a year from now......you get the pictures.

We are the result of our choices made throughout the day. As it relates to your health and fitness, we do have some choices. Once we realize that it's our choice to eat healthy or not health, we understand that we have control over the lifestyle we desire. There is a lot more to all this when it comes to our "mental game plan" but understand that if you are looking to lose weight, have more energy and/or be more productive at work, you've got to understand that if you are looking to long term change, it's going to come with ​Small, Smart Choices Consistency Over Time.

​Long term change is not going to come in a 21 Day Challenge, 24 Day Challenge, 28 Day Challenge, 6-Week Challenge or 90 day Get Ripped Challenge. Although, those are very effective at getting short term results, they are just kick starts to help you get started. Long term lifestyle and results come from making those smart choices day in and day out over a period of time. 

“Small, Smart Choices + Consistency + Time = RADICAL DIFFERENCE”
​I use this quote in pretty much everything in my life. If you are looking to make progress in something, you need to understand this Tip.
