“If you find a path with no obstacles, it probably doesn’t lead anywhere.” – Frank Clark
When most people start their journey at District H, they think of 1044 Studewood Street as a place where they go and “do fitness.” We show up, we workout, we feel great, we share some laughs, and we leave.
Over time, the experience starts to transform from the place where “we do fitness” to the place where “I get better at life.”
One of our core values at District H is adopting or having a growth mindset. A growth mindset, as defined by American psychologist Dr. Carol Dweck, is defined as “the belief that your most basic abilities can be developed through dedication and hard work—brains and talent are just the starting point. This view creates a love for learning and a resilience that is essential for great accomplishment.”
At District H, we believe in a growth mindset from the top down. From business owner, to gym manager, to coaching staff, to member; we constantly strive to lean into challenge and get better as individuals and professionals alike.
As a business owner, I surround myself with mentors who have achieved what I want to achieve so that I can best serve my community. I also try to find other professionals like Dustin, Robert, & Miranda to fill in the gaps that I have in my own skill set because that is what will make District H and its members successful.
As a coach, I am constantly taking new courses and examining new research to make sure that our gym is providing the best programming that allows members to see the best results, whether it is general health, performance, or longevity.
As a member, I am constantly trying to address my weaknesses so that I can become a more well rounded athlete. Whether is muscle ups, the Olympic lifts, or not mentally giving up on a tough workout; I strive to fill in the gaps.
Adopting a growth mindset and applying them every single day inside our four walls will also carry over into other aspects of your life. How can we become better professionals, spouses, parents, brother and sisters? This skill or pursuit of excellence can be trained and applied in all areas of our lives.
Like Joshua Marine once said, “Challenges are what make life interesting. Overcoming them is what makes life meaningful.”
While we are a gym with a mission to unlock the incredible potential within our community in regards to their health & wellness, we are also a facility that is about creating better versions of ourselves outside the gym as well.
That is what we are truly doing at 1044 Studewood Street.
