Elite is my business, how I make a living, how I pay the bills.
Boot Camps With a Purpose is something I made up in my head one day, a way everyone, anyone can make a difference by coming to workouts given by volunteer trainers to raise money and awareness for good causes and charities.
Elite has grown to Elite Corporate Fitness which has now spread to different places around The Philadelphia area, and now just recently has joined forces with trainers in places as far away as Canada and America’s Mid-West.
Here is Boot Camps With a Purpose:
The stronger and more wide-spread Elite becomes, the stronger BCWAP becomes. My dream is to travel the world and give free workouts to make people aware of things they wouldn’t pay attention to otherwise, like getting a yearly breast check-up.
If I were to travel from now till I died, for say maybe another 40 years, EVERY DAY, giving a boot camp telling people to get health exams, to get their kids checkups, and to adopt a pet from shelters, and in that FOURTY YEARS, OF EVERY DAY, 365 DAYS TIMES 40 , FOURTEEN THOUSAND, SIX HUNDRED DAYS, ALL THOSE DAYS. Just one person caught their breast cancer in time so their children didn’t lose their mom, one child’s cancer was caught in time so one set of parents didn’t have to bury their child, and JUST ONE pet wasn’t put to sleep, but FOUND A HOME. Just one of each of those three, JUST ONE. Then my life has been more than a success, it’s been a triple home run doozy of a success.
So I’m going to keep working to make this dream come true. It’s going to happen. And the guy that was called a loser by many people, from college professors to prison guards, that guy, he will be a WINNER. That guy’s me. I’m Matt. And I own, operate, and started from scratch, Elite Personal Training Studio, Corporate Fitness, Boot Camps, and Boot Camps With a Purpose, all of these you can add with all honesty, the word “INTERNATIONAL” to, and if there’s a word “Multi-International”, ADD IT. Because they all are. Worldwide, operating, and functioning, making a difference.
I’m not saying all these things to boast or brag, just to show that guy in the spot maybe I was in not so long ago, I just want to show someone who’s having a hard time, just say to them, DON’T GIVE UP. Don’t back down. Stand up. Be proud. Be you. Be strong and hard and live right , live well. Wake up every day knowing you have as much a chance to become whoever you want to be as anyone else. Just keep FIGHTING. Fight like you’ve never fought before. I MEAN REALLY REALLY REALLY FIGHT ALL OUT. Everything to the wall. All you got. Do it. I’m with you. I have you all the way with all my heart and soul. With everything I have inside me, I pray, cheer, root, and I fight inside myself with fire like you’ve never seen. Be the warrior you were born to be. The only one stopping you is YOU. Don’t let it happen. Don’t let ANYTHING stop you. EVER. I want you to fight, stand up, make it, and then, if you can, go back and help someone else out of their hole. If you’re not able to physically help someone out of their hole, then lead by example, let others see who you are, and warm their heart with your spirit and example.
So wherever you are in your journey, behind me, beside me, or ahead of me, keep pushing my brothers and sisters, keep pushing through this battle we call life. Make it through. I feel you and your energy. Keep it going. Never stop.
