Salvere Blog: 20 Years and TONS of Learnings

20 years down
Wow, 2019 starts the 20th year of the personal training business adventure. Thinking back to all the years, clients, connections with other professionals and various opportunities gave me a chance to reflect on how each of these brought loads of learning experiences!!
This week, I wanted to share the ones that stand out the most with all of you. As I read the list, I realized that these can apply to any of lifes journeys. Here it goes:
— Sometimes things find you, it’s okay to go with it!
— If it ain’t broke, break it (goes against the lessons all those other years)
— Stay true to yourself, especially when the world challenges you
— People are more then a simple transaction
— It’s okay to say “I don’t know”
— Surrounding yourself with others helps you grow and learn
— Think and exist outside the box
— Take time for yourself
— Continuously reflect
— Be willing to veer off the expected path
— Be patient
— Trust (and even appreciate!) the journey
Over the year, we will expand on a few of these in future blog posts! Thank you all for your support, encouragement, feedback and energy over the years. Looking forward to 20+ more!!!

The Event a Month Journey

December 16, 2010

This year started with a personal goal of one event per month for the entire year.  Looking forward to this journey, I mapped out a few events and started the planning process.  January, great event… The Frozen Finger Five Miler — More like the frozen snot event but COLD none the less.  Then February came and things started what felt like a down hill fall… The blizzards came first so no event.  March started with two events planned, then came the innocent basketball game and a severely sprained ankle!  My first injury EVER and the test of mental toughness began.

Here we are in December… thirteen events total for the year!!!!  Including two half ironman bike legs (thats 56 miles), a duathlon (run bike run), a half marathon (13.1 miles), a relay marathon (7 miles), several 5 milers and numerous 5K’s.  While the injury made it’s presence known several times throughout the year, the process came with many lessons.  It challenged my competitiveness, taught me to sit still for a few minutes, helped me learn to modify my goals based on life and that I could accomplish what I set my mind on.

Challenge yourself!!
