The Evolution of Infinite Fitness
After my first year of college my father died suddenly. Over the next 18 months my weight skyrocketed to over 360 pounds. Once a highly decorated collegiate athlete, the sudden weight gain took me to some dark places. Needless to say my self esteem, self worth, and overall faith and confidence became fragile. Once I committed to addressing my grief and my health, I was also inspired to help others facing similar unhealthy circumstances. The years following my weight loss were spent studying and training to become a Certified trainer. To date I hold 4 specialized certifications: Sports Specialist, Nutritional Consultant, Youth Exercise Specialist, and Post Rehab Specialist. With these certifications, I am able to provide clients with the tools and resources necessary to become more responsible for their own health and wellness. My experiences working full-time as a certified personal trainer at both local and retail chain gyms constantly created roadblocks that not only limited my personal growth, but negatively impacted my clients progress. For many clients fitness is a matter of life and death. Fitness is one huge demanding sacrifice. The last thing anyone needs are unnecessary distractions. Through these experiences I developed a passion to create an environment that would allow clients to reach their optimal fitness levels with minimal distractions. As a result my journey as a small business owner began in 2000 with the establishment of Infinite Fitness.
For more than 20 years Mr. Lawson has utilized his passion, experience, and education to serve his community in various capacities. Mr. Lawson is more than a personal trainer.
