I met Carl a few years ago - before the 5am workouts, before the training sessions, before Given 100. And what started out as a random offer for a free training session, quickly turned into a lifestyle change and a treasured friendship for me.
Needless to say, I enjoyed that first training session. But, it wasn't just that Carl was good at what he does. His smile, his warmth and his exuberance for life are genuine qualities you don't always find with a trainer. He truly cares about you and your journey. And to go from his second client ever, to seeing him thrive and grow as a trainer and as a friend has been a joy to watch. I'm not sure I've ever met anyone as happy and upbeat as Carl Givens.
It has been exciting to see him start out with a few sessions at Title Boxing, to building Given 100 from the ground up and to the prosperous business he has now. To see him go from carrying all of the equipment around in his car to putting together a fully functional gym in his garage, and now to his first retail space, Coach Carl has shown what it means to be a blessing.
He wouldn't be where he is today without his positive attitude and work ethic, fostering the relationships with his loyal clients who come back day after day, asking for one more rep, one more set, just one more minute of abs. I'm proud to have known him as a trainer and a friend over the past few years, and I'm so excited to help him along in his journey.
Stay tuned in the coming weeks to see the exciting changes to Given 100. I guarantee you won't want to miss it.
