Creating an industry out of nothing will have its own series of very difficult challenges and OsteoStrong is no different.
Skeletal strength conditioning is something no one has ever heard of, and during our early years, we spent a lot of our time explaining what we did and educating others about OsteoStrong which was very difficult. However, in spite of all the difficulty, being a part of OsteoStrong has been one of the most satisfying experiences and the amount of lives we change in a positive way is truly amazing!
The first testimonial I heard in reference to an OsteoStrong member was about a woman with a two-year-old grandson she was afraid to pick up, so she played with him on the floor. Within four to five sessions she was able to pick up her grandson and carry him around. That’s an amazing moment to experience as a grandparent.
Another member came in hunched over and had to use a walker to get around. He had open-heart surgery and the recovery time in bed took a huge toll on his back which had become very weak. Between six to seven weeks at OsteoStrong he was not only standing completely straight but entered into our center walker free! One day in the center he jumped off his equipment and came over to give me a handshake. I had never met this gentleman before, so my manager tells me
“If you would have seen him a month ago, you wouldn’t have thought that was even possible!” These types of experiences happen every day at OsteoStrong.
A prospective franchisee got into a car accident in 2004 and suffered with constant headaches since the accident along with additional physical problems. She tried everything to fix the problem but nothing worked. Yet, after just one session at OsteoStrong she had gotten her first night of good sleep prior to her accident in 2004, and she was not only getting stronger her back pain hadn’t come back. Believing so strongly in OsteoStrong I don’t even believe a team of horses could get her not to buy a franchise.
This is what motivates me every morning when my feet hit the ground simply knowing that I get to steward this concept to the world and positively impact lives in ways that I have never dreamed of having the opportunity of doing. Seeing people free and fearless is the best fuel in my tank and my constant motivation just knowing every day is unlimited.
