For Kenneth J. Riggins, a regular client, Marsha’s influence has been a game-changer. “She rocks her fitness skills by being the perfect mixture of compassion for those of us who are no longer athletic, and leading by her example,” said Kenneth. “Marsha is an incredible athlete who has run marathons in almost every state. She is a great motivator as she is always tailoring my workouts to meet my specific physical and motivational needs."
Fifteen years ago, I trained a client, Vivian, who was in her late 70’s. Her goal was to continue living independently despite her five children all residing in other states. Thus, they were very concerned and nervous of her working with me. During the initial months of training, I had the opportunity to meet each one and received their ‘blessing’ that I was in fact, doing good for their mom. Vivian and I remained friends long after the training ended. Last fall when I sent my condolences on her passing, her daughter commented how fond her mother, Vivian, was of me. I felt such warmth. Never think you are ‘just a trainer’ as you may make the world of difference to someone through what you do.
Inspiring the countless individuals I have met to feel happier and healthier in their thoughts and actions. Happy people make the world a better place.
Seek a mentor and be willing to learn from mistakes. Opportunity is on the other side of saying “yes,” even when challenging!
