Feb 22nd iChoosefit

Hey team, welcome to the last round of iChoosefit! Starting February 22nd I will be holding camp for 6 more weeks and then I will be integrating my company into campgladiator. I am really excited about this move, because I will be able to focus more on Fitness, and you will have access to more trainers, tools and technology. Some of you have expressed concern, but you will be getting the same style and the same Ole AJ! I still have full autonomy on how I make my workouts. I have seen a bunch of you this week joining me for workouts and so far everyone has enjoyed it.

I am currently in my internship for campgladiator. It normally takes person about 5 – 8 weeks to complete this, but I plan on doing it in 3 weeks. The morning schedule will be the same but there will be changes to the PM schedule. We will not be holding classes at Roberta Tipps for the next 6 weeks, but you will have access to all Camp Gladiator locations. So you will have access to classes on Monday and Wednesday nights. The iChoosefit schedule will be as follows

Midlothian:
Athletic Enhancement
615 7th Street
Midlothian Texas
M,W,F @ 5 am

Mansfield:
Walnut Ridge Baptist Church
1201 S. 360
Mansfield Texas 760633
T,Th @ 5 am and 7 pm and Saturday at 7 am

There will be no 7 pm Roberta Tipps or Gym Virtue in Midlothian, but there are locations all over the metroplex. Once I complete my internship I will reinstall the PM classes at Roberta Tipps. You have access to any location, but here is the link to recommended locations and times.

Be ready for measurements all week long, and don’t forget to bring a buddy!!

Committed to your fitness,

AJ Tucker

Big iChoosefit Announcement

Big announcemnt,

First off I want to say thank you for waking up early or coming out after a long day work and pursuing your goals. If it weren’t for you, I would not be able to pursue my passion; which is helping others achieve their goals. I totally enjoy making workouts and amping people up. I have been waking up everyday at 330 am (5 on weekends) since 2005. And 4 am for 4 years in the Army!

I have built my reputation on going above and beyond to make sure people are held accountable. Whether it be grocery tours, phone calls, or popping up at their jobs;) The last 4 years I have found it increasingly more difficult to do that. After I teach I spend that same time on website, merchandise, recruiting trainers, strategy and other things that go into running a business. I won’t bore you with all of the details but wanted to express what is going into my decision.

I am always seeking ways to improve myself and create new opportunities for my clients to get results.

Next week we are in the off week of iChoosefit and we start back up February 22nd. The next 6 week session marks the last six weeks of iChoosefit as a Bootcamp. The message of iChoosefit will live on. I will continue to send newsletters, write workouts for people to follow but on April 18th I will be officially opening my first Camp Gladiator Location. If you have not heard of Camp Gladiator it is an outdoor fitness company that started in 2008 and now has 12,000 campers in the DFW area.

How does this affect you? It really doesnt. I still plan on working the same locations at the same times, and you will be getting the same AJ. Actually you will be getting a ‘Putting Everything On The Line and Must Succeed’ AJ. You will also have access to all CG locations, this mean 50 locations in Mansfield alone and 500 across DFW. So if you work in Dallas and not able to make it out, you can hit a Dallas location after you get off of work. And for those of you who have to struggle out to Midlothian from Arlington or Burleson you will have access to other monday-wednesday locations in Mansfield or even Burleson.

I wanted to give you total transparency to what I am doing. I am super excited about this opportunity,and I am excited about all of the opportunities the campers will have access to.

The benefits for me is that I will have about 200 leaders to brainstorm with and I have 3 direct mentors who will be holding me accountable, and from our meetings I have a feeling that they will be holding me to an even higher standard than the other interns. I’m very competitive so I definitely want exceed expectations.

Tomorrow I start a rigorous, 4-week internship/audition. I have negotiated that my iChoosefit FAM have access to all locations so you guys have no off weeks, but also over the next 2 months I wanted to give you a chance to check out some of the alternate locations. The Regional directors agreed.

If you check in on the gladiator app or website you will see all of the the locations. But I don’t want you to do that. If you click on the link I have compiled a list of some of their more experienced trainers. The Mansfield locations are highlighted, but you will see other cities of the top trainers.

Locations

So next week I will only be teaching m,w at Midlothian. But if you just show up and let them know that a friend sent you, and bring a mat and dumbbells. (10-20 lbs for women and 15-30 lbs for men).
Feb 22nd make sure you come out to the last 6 weeks of live iChoosefit workouts in History!

Thank you all for your continued support and participation. Post, text, Email any questions!
