In February 2015, Men’s Health announced that they were going to do a Season 2 for the Next Top Trainer Competition.
This is a new concept they introduced in 2014. The Next Top Trainer is a competition to select America’s Top Trainer.
I was able to qualify for the first competiton in 2014. Out of over 200 personal trainers who entered I was selected by the judging panel at Men’s Health. What a big honor!
But I represented myself and my abilities poorly and I was quickly sent home after day 2.
I was absolutely embarrassed. I was extremely humbled. But I was motivated beyond belief.
I always talk about failure. Everyone will fail. But how you RESPOND is what matters.
I drove 7.5 hours to Columbus, Ohio to go back to the 2015 casting call. It was snowing badly in Abington when I left. It was a long drive and I unfortunately got a ticket on the way. But none of those things could stop me from doing what needed to be done.
When you want to achieve your goals, you will do what you need to do to do that. Remember YOU must seize opportunities in life.
Opportunity is not just waiting around for you. You have to grab the bull by horns.
You might get folded but guess what? You will rise again.
I’ll holla at you next time,
The People’s Trainer
