Gym Firebrand-The End [2014-2024]

Good morning, everyone. First and foremost, I want to express my deep gratitude to each of you for being here today. Your presence means the world to me. I also have some news to share. After careful consideration, I've decided to retire from Online Personal Training/Coaching once your current programs are completed.

The landscape of the Fitness Industry has evolved significantly since the onset of COVID-19, and it's no longer the familiar environment I once knew. Finding clients has become increasingly challenging, particularly compared to a few years ago. The constant pressure to maintain a strong social media presence and invest in advertising has taken a toll on me, leaving me feeling drained by the process.

I want to emphasize that it's not the act of coaching itself that's exhausting, but rather the demanding nature of running an online business in 2024. I hope you understand my perspective; it's not about complaining, but rather recognizing my own limitations.

As some of you may already be aware, I'm also an artist by profession. I've decided to pursue my true passion and begin a new journey as an illustrator and YouTube art teacher. You can find examples of my work on my website and my YouTube channel

Currently, I'm fully immersed in creating a children's illustrated book that explores themes of friendship and morals, with characters reflecting the experiences of special needs children, including my own son who has autism. Additionally, I'm working on a Trade Paperback Graphic Novel. Both projects demand my utmost dedication and focus.

I want to take this opportunity to sincerely thank each and every one of you for your unwavering support throughout my time in the fitness industry. I'm genuinely excited about this new chapter in my life and deeply grateful for your understanding as I pursue my passion for art.

I will continue to support you until your programs are completed, and I'm here to assist with anything you may need. If you'd like a copy of your program before my departure, please let me know, and I'll arrange that along with any published materials I have, including numerous Ebooks on fitness and health. I'm more than happy to share my digital library with you and provide access to download any books you wish to keep. My goal is to ensure you're well-equipped for success in your fitness journey moving forward, so you're never misled by any gurus or mainstream trainer hype on social media. You have the power to take charge of your health for life and pass on the knowledge I've imparted to those who will listen.

Please don't hesitate to reach out to me if you have any questions. I've decided to take a break from social media for my own well-being, as I can no longer tolerate the constant stream of thoughts and opinions from my peers. It's a personal choice, akin to a little anecdote I once shared with my wife about my childhood dream of wanting to be Superman, only to realize as an adult how overwhelming it would be to constantly hear people in distress due to his super hearing. It's a reminder of the immense burden of prayers and cries for help that reach the heavens. While I acknowledge the value of social media, it's something I no longer wish to contend with.

My website will remain active until August, and my YouTube and Instagram accounts will stay up indefinitely for those interested. However, it's challenging to maintain enthusiasm for writing blogs that go unread and creating programs that garner little interest. Once again, thank you for your understanding and support.
