"Never give up. Believe in yourself. And keep grafting"

Posted by Joe Wicks in Wellbeing

This is where it all began for me.

When I started as a personal trainer I couldn't afford a van to get to my Bootcamp in Richmond so I bought this trailer and would cycle 5 miles from Surbiton to Richmond twice a day. Rain or shine I would be there at 6am and 7.30pm and sometimes no one would even turn up. It upset me but it didn't stop me. I didn't give up. I would pack up, cycle to the train station and hand out flyers to the commuters before going back home. I repeated this every day for months and months until the Bootcamp grew. Today I have a 5000ft sq office 20 metres from where I stood. The moral of the story.... Never give up. Believe in yourself and keep working hard. You can be as successful as you want to be. Go and achieve your goals and win.
