Developing a Purpose

There is no secret that my background comes from sports and being athletic. I opened CrossFit Portside almost 7 years ago. I was just coming out of coaching collegiate basketball and all I knew was that I wanted to move home and open a gym.   I was in the best shape of my life at the time.   I was 30 or 31 and lived to workout and hit PR's left and right.   What a time to be alive!!!

My mindset started to shift when I realized, what was my purpose? Why did I move home and open a gym?    I really had to dig deep and figure out what was my mission for CrossFit Portside? Well, CrossFit Portside began to shape into just Portside and then Portside Fitness.   Why?   I wanted to touch as many lives as I could on the Mississippi Gulf Coast through fitness and nutrition.    

This led me to Portside Fitness' Mission today.

  Our mission "is to create an environment where people feel inspired to be the best version of themselves."  

We do this through educating you on fitness and nutrition.   We empower you to make healthy choices not only for you but for your family.  

Our focus is to make you feel like you can accomplish more than you ever thought you could.

The gym has a vibe.   The gym has genuinely happy people.   The gym has a purpose and that purpose is to give you a safe place to make changes for the better.   I am proud to be the owner of Portside.   I am proud to be around caring coaches.  I am mostly proud to be affecting the lives of our members in the most positive way.
