Over 15 years ago, we put together The Firm FIT program with the collaboration of trainers, instructors, teachers and nutritionists.
The objective was to create a program that taught people how to change the shape of their body by increasing lean muscle and allowing the body to use fat for fuel. Our goal was to provide personalized information about exercise and food so people can make healthy decisions. Then extend that personalized information into areas like sleep, alcohol, stress, hormones and other variables to achieve overall health, wellness and fitness goals.
The other objective was to put all this information in one place and roll it out in a logical, easy-to-understand format, over an 8-week period.
I have been facilitating Firm FIT since 2003. My education is in finance, and work experience in the software industry. My last corporate projects were related to “change management” within large organizations. Originally from San Diego, I moved to San Francisco and worked in Silicon Valley in the 90’s and came to Minneapolis for a short-term project with a small “start-up” software company. Met a Minnesota girl… so much for a “short-term project”. That girl is Kelly Miyamoto. Kelly is the founder of The Firm, which she started in 1986. Kelly is now my boss, business partner, wife and best friend.
I look forward to working with you over the next eight weeks. Sincerely,
Firm FIT Facilitator
