I come onto this blog every week pounding my fists on my desk trying to get you to take action, reach out for success and follow your passions.
There’s really a very simple reason why I do this: it’s so I can listen to wonderful stories like this (and help create them in the first place!)
So now let me introduce Sheryl Dyck, owner of Armstrong Fit Body Boot Camp. Here’s her wonderful letter:
We haven’t officially met, but I have been a FBBC owner since January 17, 2015.
This year before the Conference you asked everyone to write how FBBC has changed their lives. I looked at your request several times and just wasn’t sure what to say or how to express what I was feeling at the time, and to be honest I am still unsure what all of these emotions are. So, for whatever reason I have decided to write this letter now, and express how Fit Body and these amazing people that make up Fit Body have changed my life and my family’s lives.
I have been divorced for 9 years. I decided one year after my divorce that I was going to become certified as a personal trainer and follow my passion of living, and helping others live, a life of health and fitness. Once certified I went to work at your typical gym, focusing on the task at hand, changing lives, changing my life, and making money. Well, as you sit and read this you know what did not happen…the money. I worked and worked and sacrificed time with my young family to better our lives. I realized very quickly that this was not my path, to work in a gym that did not believe in what I did; helping people succeed, supporting others, and being part of something bigger than myself.
I left that gig after one year, went out on my own and did fairly well for about 6 years. Three years into my own fitness business I saw an ad for FBBC and was intrigued, but thought “I can do this on my own.” I was so wrong. In the fall of 2014 some life changing events happened, and in December of 2014 I looked at Fit Body again. By January of 2015 I was sold. I knew I could not get to where I wanted to be on my own, and I needed Fit Body to guide me there. I signed the papers in January, launched in March, and haven’t looked back.
I no longer struggle financially to pay my bills or support my family (which is one of the most important things for any parent.) I have set myself up for my future (retirement,) and I beyond tripled my income in 3 months. I felt so alone before Fit Body, not sure what to do next or how to market my business. I remember John Franco telling me “if you do what we suggest you will see success,” and I have never forgotten that. I am finally part of something bigger than myself, I am able to help people the way I was meant to, and I have the freedom to enjoy life. I have never been part of a family with so many like-minded individuals. People that want to help others, and see not only their clients succeed but other owners. FBBC gives new meaning to the words team, family and value of others.
I have been very fortunate to become friends with Freddy Jenkins, who is not only a friend but family (a brother). He allows me to call on him at any time day or night. This man is so valuable as a person, friend, and leader.
Emma Henson is another amazing individual that I have been blessed to have in my life. She took me under her wing and helped me with my first ever challenge. I am ever so grateful to Freddy and Emma, and Bedros for creating Fit Body, and the entire staff that helps endlessly.
Fit Body talks about passion, family, dedication, energy, and love for what you do, and I honestly cannot talk about Fit Body or my business without all of these emotions consuming me. I absolutely love what I do, who I am, and the company (FBBC) that I represent.
Thank you for your time and accepting my late letter.
Wishing you a very Merry Christmas and an amazing New Year.
