It’s Not Personal, It’s Business

“It’s not personal, it’s business.” That is the line Tom Hanks said to Meg Ryan in “You’ve Got Mail”. Yea, it is a chick-flick and you may not have seen it, but that scene has always resonated with me. Sometimes, for me, it is difficult to separate the two.
Over the past four years that I have been creating and building EnJoy Fitness into the business that it is, there has been no shortage of challenges. From starting the business on my own because of the circumstance I was in (the gym I worked for was bought out), to realizing I needed a business partner and finding the right one two years ago, and to today, where we are now putting on our own race (Race For Presents) for the second year. We work hard every day to be the best coaching and fitness company in Northeast Florida.
Not everyone is lucky enough to do what they love every day. Running a business is a lot of work and in no way easy. However, I can say I truly LOVE what I do. But I also take my job very personally and we care about all of our athletes and our sponsor partners. In every decision EnJoy Fitness makes, we want to do what is best for our athletes. When creating “Race For Presents”, we wanted to put on a unique race that stood out from any other race in Jacksonville. We also wanted the race experience to be the best for everyone that would participate. We take that same approach when we partner with another company. We make those decisions because we believe in them and what they do. We know we are creating an opportunity for both them and ourselves.
EnJoy Fitness is a business, but it is also personal. It is about building relationships. Helping people reach goals and do things they never thought they could do is our mission. Fitness is our passion, not just what we do as a business. The result has been the creation of some lifelong relationships while hopefully making an impact in the lives of our clients and the community we serve. We are excited for the next year and all of the possibilities it might bring. As always, we want to give a heartfelt thanks to every one of you who have supported us along the way. We look forward to continuing to serve you into 2017!
