"A lot of people ask me, 'why open your own gym, when you can work for one?', I tell them that I don't want to be average, and I'm trying to leave a legacy. If I fail at least I know I tried my hardest to be above average and not just fall in line with everyone else. But truthfully the word "failure" isn't even in my vocabulary so its not happening. When people fail at things some times it is because the struggle has gotten so hard that they give up, or they lose the love for whatever they have, but for me the biggest one is they never remind themselves why they started in the first place. I know why I am taking on this challenge, and on the hard days I will remind myself why." Chris Chaney
