In April of 2003 I began training my first client, her name was Kathy Koppers and that is where the BoomFit story begins. At the time I was attending Texas A&M and working in a personal training studio. I graduated from A&M in 2005 and decided to work independently as a personal trainer at a local gym. During the 3 years I was at the gym I grew from being an independent personal trainer to having 7 employees and a lot more clients. In 2008 I moved into an 1800 sq ft personal training studio and continued to do the two things I love to do – workout and train people to workout. In 2008 I stumbled upon a program called CrossFit which changed my entire outlook on fitness. CrossFit changed my business model and it has tremendously impacted the growth of BoomFit.
I would be lying if I took all of the credit for this business, my wife has stood by me and supported me since day one and there have been over 50 employees who each helped build BoomFit into the successful organization that it is today. My role at BoomFit has changed over the years, those of you familiar with small business know that you wear several hats in trying to grow a business, but you will still find me at the gym everyday. Thankfully I have an incredible team that works extremely hard which allows me to do the things I love to do, like being involved in the community, meeting with my leaders on how to keep BoomFit at the top of its game, workout in classes with my customers and enjoy time with my family.
BoomFit is truly a dream come true, 10 years ago I would have never guessed it would be what it is and impacted as many lives as it has. I am grateful for the incredible team I serve with and the customers that choose to workout at BoomFit.
