When I started my independent gym X Fitness from scratch in 2001, there was no social media. The World-Wide Web and cell phones were in their infancy. Revolutionary changes have happened since 2001.

But there are certain elements of our gym operation that have never changed and never will. One element is our Core Beliefs.
Here’s Real-Life Lesson #3,996 that I’ve learned in my previous professions that I’ve transferred to business – nothing endures without ideological consistency. Before I became a full-time business owner, I worked in high-risk professions and sports that require ideological consistency regarding Core Beliefs to achieve Leadership Congruency, the single-most important leadership element needed to lead a team to its collective and individual actualization. The biggest mistake a leader can make is Leadership Incongruence that results in erratic decision-making, dysfunctional teams, and wasted potential.

These are only the 8 main points in our X Fitness Playbook relation to Core Beliefs.

The starting point is living your Core Belief without compromise.
