Sometimes that's all it takes.
One conversation to change the course of a life.
13 years ago, someone had a conversation with me. It was short. It was simple. I remember exactly where it was and what I was doing:
sitting on a blue bench in the Waukesha Family YMCA, waiting for 2 of my girls to finish their lessons.
The group exercise director of that YMCA sat down next to me and said very simply, "I've seen you in class. You need to be teaching. I want you to start in January." (This was November).

One morning, after I'd been teaching group ex for a few months, I woke up with the realization that THIS - this fitness and health 'thing' - THIS was what I was supposed to be doing with my life. Teaching, aspiring to inspire, all through health and fitness. Teaching high school English had been a prologue to THIS...the thing I was put here on earth to do....
