Reps Gym

Chris Beard

The CEO students visited Reps gym and met with the CEO Chris Beard. Chris shared his story of where he came from, and how he got to where he is today. He was just like them when he was their age. He, like the students, wasn’t sure where he wanted to go in life. He picked a job to occupy him, which led him to his passion.  He also showed them that success will come when you believe in what you’re doing. Chris had to move his business location because of the growth they were experiencing. He also stressed the importance of diversifying. Chris offers multiple areas of exercise, which helps set him apart from the other gyms, and gives options to people in the community.
