If you are really passionate about training you can train anywhere

Truthfully speaking, the title says it all. Our journey with “getting some, anytime, anywhere” began six months ago in a carport at a house near you.
“My friend needs a trainer….” This was the call I received from one of my dear friends.

“I would love to train him, but we don’t have a facility to train in.” “You could train him at his house…in his carport”

“Really?”

“Yeah, totally, he is into the garage gym thing—you guys will hit it off well.”

And so the journey begins.

May 2005 - First session with new client
5:55 AM: Arrive on location. Triple-check the map, see the target site, but it does not have an address on the front. Oh, man, I hope I am in the right spot. Coffee in hand, I pace nervously. I am out of my comfort zone. My toolset is unknown (no real gear to bring with me yet), the layout is foreign, and this is my first time meeting with this client.

6:00 AM: Client arrives, out comes the game face. “Glad you found the place—we haven’t put the numbers up on the front of the house yet.”
“Yes I know, I was worried for a second or two.”
“Cannot believe I made it up this morning.”
“Same here, this is new for me, the whole get up before the birds thing.” “Successful people get up early, that is their nature.”

That last sentence still sticks with me today. When I have issues dragging myself out of bed, I think about the things that can be accomplished before most people even think about getting out of bed. Success-driven people do get up early; we have proof!
