What if you worked a full time job but never received a paycheck? What if that job required weekends, night and stretching your limits of understanding…could you stay with it?
For the past 18 months this has been my burden, and not just mine, but my husbands and most loyal friends as well.
In 2008 my newly wedded husband was deployed to Iraq. The economy was in the pooper and my gym management job was deleted (literally, nationwide). It was time to re-build. I opened up a small Personal Training studio and began to build my business.
When my husband returned from war things got interesting. The cost of personal training never sat well with me. The reality is, not everyone can afford one on one training, but most Americans really need professional help! It was with a humble Marine’s salary that we were able to correct this issue.
My husband, my friend Liz and I developed fitwithbrit.com. We’re an online website that captures the essence of a personal training session with three new workouts released weekly. We’ve made it affordable for everyone; costing about the price of two Starbucks drink. There’s something for every fitness level with weekly plans for our client’s specific goals in mind. Most importantly, we understand time is an issue for most people, so workout routines range from 10-20 minutes each.
The Fit with Brit team is made up of a scrappy group of visionaries. Seeing what we have accomplished with our hearts and insane drive, and knowing my team intimately, makes me chuckle. For starters, our marketing director has been made into a working night owl. This girl has two little ones under the age of two! And they are beautiful little crazies! Stitches, whooping cough, diaper rash, teething… they always need attention. Some how our Liz always gets it done. Second, and maybe the most remarkable, we have my husband. Mike is a full time student, carpenter and self-taught web guru! In this man’s sparse free hours he taught himself web coding and made the most beautiful fitness website in the industry (we just launched it yesterday)! Granted, I’m a little bias, but seriously, you’ve got to give my boy props! Lastly, our team is made up of me, the trainer. For those who have known me, you may have seen me at one time in a wheel chair and other times doing burpees. I’m just your average trainer battling multiple sclerosis.
So here we are 18 months later. Fitwithbrit.com is becoming a well-oiled machine. Currently, Fitwithbrit.com is a valuable and affordable tool for ones’ health that no one knows about. You see, for all our heart, drive and passion we are still a small business. We plan on bringing fitness to the world, but we would like to start with our hometown’s support!
Hundreds of hours filming, thousands of hours learning/implementing code and dreaming every minute along the way. We are a company that provides weekly workout routines from the comfort of your home. I’m sure you will hear about us one day.
