A LOVE NOTE FROM THE FOUNDER
Beloved RF Family,
Just five short years ago, Results Fitness opened its doors with a mission to redefine health and fitness. What started as a few people working out among cramped fitness equipment blossomed in to 5,000 square feet. But it wasn’t the size or shiny new equipment defining RF’s new home. It was (and remains) the people inside and how we could change their narrative to live their most fulfilling life.
This is where my personal philosophy of coaching the shit out of people both in and outside the gym was birthed. Results Fitness exists to help people elevate their lives, break barriers, live well and have fun, and I wholeheartedly believe we can help anyone wanting to change. At the end of the day, it’s about imploring you to see in yourself what we see in you. This vision translated into our founding core values, all of which lend to creating the most unique, meaningful and enjoyable experience met by personal growth and success. Inclusiveness, authenticity (be yourself!), kindness and fun ensure everyone is treated with the same love and respect regardless of their starting point. For all of us, being successful in our journeys requires a little bit of commitment, a ton of accountability and a safe space to get after it and be our bad-ass selves.
Growing up, I loved sports and being active. There was nothing better than a Friday night game under the lights or a weekend tournament. However, it was the training component- the physical process of growing and learning – that lead me to where I am today both personally and professionally. The process of going to practice and the challenges of working through barriers, although tedious, was the best part because you came out of it better than when you started. My attraction to this profession stems from my firm belief and passion to help others get the most out of their life without looking back on what “was”. It’s the challenge and privilege of helping people realize their strengths, encouraging them to be themselves (quiet or goofy, just be you) and demonstrating any type of success (ie. looking and feeling a certain way) is achievable with hard work and some fun! THIS is exactly why I founded Results Fitness and why I’m confident what we do and who we are will continue to change lives.
Fast forward a few years…
Born into humble beginnings on a cold January day in 2014, a small but fierce group of about 35 gave life to the first group training session, first round of sled sprints, first med ball slam, first overhead press, and inaugural kettle bell swings. It was a safe space where people bonded over weights and push-ups. Friendships blossomed, positive energy and support was everywhere, and a shared, fun-loving way of life made exercise seem not so boring and dull. It was a close-knit group of humans with a shared passion and true zest for being strong, healthy and happy.
With each passing year, Results Fitness grew and evolved. New, friendly faces joined our community of warriors, and we continued to transition into a melting pot of sweaty greatness. Our collective sense of humor was expanding, our mutual connections growing, and our diligence to work hard, feel good and learn was inspiring.
Little by little, the new faces were met with new equipment. Just when you thought there wasn’t room for more new and challenging exercises, we happily surprised you! The infamous slam wall was built….another squat rack was added….heavier barbells were racked…and more cubbies added for all of your squeaky clean shoes!
Despite the evolution and changes we collectively experience as a community, the one constant has always been YOU, the people! I am eternally grateful, humbled and honored to know you, to be your friend, and to have the privilege of being your coach. Who we are, what we believe and what we do is rooted in each and every one of you. Because of this, January will always hold a special place in my heart as it commemorates when Results Fitness set out to help people and change lives.
To the RF team – THANK YOU! For your unwavering support, sacrifice and dedication, for your incredible talent and for your passion – the fuel keeping RF operating like a well-oiled machine. You have my utmost respect and appreciation and it’s been an honor working along your side.
Happy Anniversary, RF Community! The last 5 years have been one hell of a ride and will be hard to beat, but we look forward to the next 5 and everything that’s to come! To commemorate this important milestone, we’re officially declaring January as the month of member appreciation and celebration! And, what would a celebration be without a huge bash, giveaways and special promos to show our deepest gratitude for all you’ve done to help us reach this milestone. Keep reading for complete details on the month-long celebration!
Thank you for enriching our lives and for being YOU!
With Much Love,
Josh Mekota, Founder of Results Fitness
