I had the privalege to interview my friend Amy early in my attempt at blogging. She was gracious enough to allow me to use her as a “genie pig” in my early writing. Amy was then and still is a true inspiration to me on a daily basis. Amy is my personal fitness trainer and someone I consider a close friend. I have watched her grow consistently day in and day out in her craft as well as in her personal life. She has built a fitness business from the ground up. And she has even transformed herself in order to even go into this preferred line of work. Amy puts everything that she is and has into her work and family and to watch someone with such dedication is the ultimate of inspiring. Now I am getting the pleasure of watching her “inspiring harvest.”
How does she do it?
I simply have no idea how she does it. As a single mom of two boys, she runs a business by herself to provide for their needs. She never gives up, takes a break, or retreats. I seem to give up whenever I even get a paper cut or a minor headache. She only seems to get more energized and presses harder with time. Amy has overcome surgery, divorce, disappointments, setbacks, and hardships. A question that Joshua Medcalf (whose work I am currently obsessed with – more to come at a later time!) has written the question well worth asking – “Are you waiting for a moment, or training for a moment?” I see Amy as constantly training. She realizes that reward (her moment) is right around the corner. With autumn being upon us, I know Amy’s harvest is soon to be reaped. Her hard work and drive have brought her to this moment. And I am sure there are many more great rewards on the horizon.
Please take the time to learn more about my friend and her inspiring story on Facebook at Amy Evert Fitness. She is also part of Sisters in Shape, a group of trainers empowering women through fitness. Look her up at www.sisinshape.com. It will be well worth the time to get inspired by someone who transformed her own life in order to transform others!
