Getting Ready to Open
We moved in to the training center about 2 weeks ago. Since then, I’ve been fixing the place up and preparing it for opening day with the help of my wife, my business partner, and family. Thank God for their help, because there’s no way I could have done it on my own. My business partner laid out over a thousand dollars just to come over from SoCal for the weekend and help move all our equipment out of public storage and in to our facility. Today, my sister came in to town (from NY) to help with some construction. She is a rock star set designer for nationally touring plays so what we’ll be doing is right up her alley. Tomorrow, my father-in-law, who IS Mr. Tool Time, comes in to help as well. My wife has been a WORKHORSE and responsible for the progress more than anyone else as she’s painted and cleaned much of the facility by herself (while watching our 2 year old daughter) while I was away for a week for a speaking engagement. Assuming all goes well and the few remaining things we need arrive, we should be open for business on August 3rd. Stay tuned.
Welcome to the web page for Athletic Lab. My name is Mike Young, the owner of Human Performance Consulting. Athletic Lab is the official training center of my company. This center has been 2 years in the making but is a long time dream and much needed ‘next-step’ in the evolution of the company. The company has operated in some fashion for 6 years, fluttering at times between being a fully virtual company with only web and distance clients, to being a combination of a traveling road show consultant, virtual trainer, and on-site coaching business at various training facilities around the country. Despite having no true physical location, the company grew exponentially each of those 6 years. And 15 months ago, I quit my ‘normal’ job to finish the doctoral dissertation I had been sitting on for 3 years and devote myself fully to the company. The decision has paid off on both fronts as I finished my dissertation 9 months ago and am looking forward to opening Athletic Lab next week for business. The opening of this center allows us to take the proverbial ‘next step’ that is vitally important for the business to grow to what I believe it can be. Welcome.
