Why Libra Fitness?

Jump to Comments


Wow.   My first blog post.  Finally.  This has been a long journey to get to this point, and I am so excited to be here, realizing a dream come true.  I plan to post a couple of times a week about healthy eating and exercise, of course, but also about the other components of balanced living.  Check back often to see what I’m up to.

So…what’s with the name?  Why “Libra Fitness”?  I considered several names before starting my business, but I wanted something that captured all of what I was hoping to create for my clients.  I wanted the name to reflect that my company would provide more than personal training services.  After all, people can get that anywhere.  My company was going to be about making meaningful, long-lasting relationships with my clients.  It was going to be about helping people find a way to make permanent changes that transformed their lives.  So, “Chris’ Gym” just wasn’t going to cut it.  Eventually, I settled on Libra Fitness.

People assume that I must be a Libra, but I’m not.  My mom is a Libra, though, and that appealed to me when searching for a name.  Libras are sincere, expressive, sociable, and easy-going.  Ultimately, Libras are well-balanced.  Libra Fitness is all about leading a well-balanced lifestyle.  I am actually a Capricorn.  As such, my destiny in life is to share what I have with others.
