Just in time for the New Year and all of the resolutions and fresh starts that come with it, this blog post is the official announcement that Today is that Day will soon be under new management, and I will be moving back into the role that I used to help so many people in the past, and that is as a Fitness Coach.
My time here at Today is that Day has been nothing less than wonderful, and I am very glad that the blog posts and other content from the site will most likely still remain available even after the new owners get done moving things around. The community that has been built around this site is the most empowering and uplifting group of people that I have ever been exposed to, and I am grateful that via the power of the Internet, I will still be able to interact with many of you.
My own life has changed drastically over the last year, and all of the changes have been for the best! I got married to my wonderful new wife, Shanna, and we live on the east coast of Florida which is a dream come true for both of us. I have rejoined the U.S. Military as an Air National Guard soldier, and I will spend 6 months at Keesler Air Force Base in Mississippi during 2009 learning all sorts of cool, high-tech stuff. My military affiliation will be financing a full-time college education that will also be in the high-tech arena. In addition, I have finally launched the incredible health & fitness website: Surfside Fitness, which is a project that I have been working on for more than 6 months. The result of that work is a beautiful new site that will be an awesome resource for a great many people.
Surfside Fitness is where I will be spending most of my online time, and with major props once again being given to my incredible designer, Jason Larose, I am looking forward to helping thousands of people to attain high levels of health and fitness via that site. I got it completed just in time for the fresh start that 2009 will bring for all of us!
Surfside Fitness is more than just a website and blog, however. The site comes complete with:
A full suite of services including Fitness Consulting, Online Fitness Training, Program Evaluation, and lots more
A fitness blog that will be updated several times each week, and a plan is already in place to ensure not only frequent updates, but very high quality health and fitness content as well
A free health and fitness community that is simple to use, yet packed with tons of features like personal blogs, video uploads, picture uploads, groups, forums, and more
Frequently updated videos and featured products that will be more than just a stale rotation of old content. The video and product updates will be coming straight from the cutting edge of the health and fitness arena
Since my primary goal with Today is that Day has always been to empower people to believe that they can take control over their lives and build those lives to be wonderful, I want to leave with a parting message:
Never, ever, EVER GIVE UP!
For my wife and I, 2008 has been one of the hardest years of our lives. We have had every imaginable difficulty, and some difficulties that you probably CAN' T imagine. To say that we had to struggle this year in order to get to where we are now would be a radical understatement.
We made it through the fire by sticking to our guns and staying focused on our goals!
There were no hand outs, no easy streets, no miracle cures, and no safety nets. We have had to fight, kick, scratch, and bite for every ounce of success that we have had, and if we had given up, then none of these wonderful things would have happened in our lives.
We sit poised on the brink of a new year that - although there will still be challenges - we are better armed from every conceivable level to achieve success than we have ever been in the past.
We got to this point by believing in ourselves, believing in each other, and keeping our eyes on the prize.
Stay focused on what you want, never give up reaching for it, and your success is guaranteed.
I' ll look forward to seeing you all out there wherever our paths cross again, and in the meantime, remember to always enjoy your life. If you' re not having fun, what' s the point??
