PRLog - Apr. 2, 2012 - Corporal Sean Francis, owner of Soldiers of Fitness Boot Camp, isn’t your ordinary personal trainer or boot camp owner. His background is quite extensive, which allows him to provide SOF (Soldiers of Fitness) boot camp members a unique and top notch exercise program.
Corporal Francis isn’t just a certified strength and conditioning specialist, he’s a Kinesiologist, and a Doctor of Chiropractic. But wait, there’s more. He has been an active member of the Canadian Forces Reserve since 1998. Some have asked Corporal Francis, “Why boot camp training when you have this distinguished background?”
This is the Corporal’s response. “Every summer until last year I have trained and conditioned soldiers of the Canadian Forces and I really enjoyed doing it. But I wanted to take my personal training to the next level. Of course I could go straight into the Chiropractic business, but I like being outdoors and fitness and wanted to help people change their lives in a different way.”
In 2008 Corporal Francis became a manager of two different Soldiers of Fitness facilities. In 2010 he decided to open his own Soldiers of Fitness boot camp in Lindsay and use his educational knowledge, military background, and fitness experience to design and implement one of the best workout programs around.
“SOF boot camp in Lindsay started with 7 members in 2010 and last summer grew to 200, which also led to the opening of our Peterborough location in summer of 2011. We currently have 250 total members. Those numbers say something,” says the Corporal.
So what makes a guy like Corporal Sean Francis the winner of this prestigious award? As mentioned previously this award is given to one individual who made the greatest transformation in his or her business.
Sean is truly a hard working guy who honestly cares about the lives he affects. Two lives that are extremely important to him are that of his wife and daughter. They are a big part of his inspiration in being a success. You see Sean grew up as a latchkey kid being dropped off at daycare early in the morning and picked up late at night. His parents were hard working and Sean watched them struggle with work, family life, and trying to make ends meet. The pressure eventually ended their marriage. Sean’s parents divorced when he was 7. Life was tough and he vouched to himself that when he got married and had a family he would not allow this to happen.
Sadly, Sean started heading in the same direction. He was working too many hours and not spending time with his family. He recognized what was happening and turned it all around. Sean dedicated his time completely to improving his boot camp business, running it more efficiently and effectively, and improving the quality of his family life. But Sean never lost focus of his purpose for being in the fitness business and his fast growing success is proof of this. The lives he has changed is proof.
Sean says, “I am very thankful for this award and the new vehicle. In Lindsay there isn’t a local Land Rover dealership so I opted to support the local economy and chose a Ford Flex. It’s an awesome vehicle that will represent everyone involved with Soldiers of Fitness boot camp. I actually had the option of a monthly allowance instead but decided against it because I did not earn the Flex on my own. I earned it because of the great members of SOF boot camp and driving this vehicle will be a reminder of that. I want everyone to know this vehicle represents all their hard work and dedication, not just mine.”
“How many people are willing to train in minus 30 degree weather? We maintain approximately 100 active members who don’t let the snow or the cold stop them. Our clients range from grandmothers in their 50’s, to 35 and 40 year old moms with kids at home, and 20-30 year old students who look forward to the camaraderie of this elite group. Each SOF member feels appreciated and that is why I do what I do; that is why I have the privilege of driving a Ford Flex that represents all of us,” states Corporal Francis.
If you want to be a part of the 587 clients that have lost over 11,637 pounds of unwanted fat and 5,836 inches from their bodies, then give Corporal Francis a call and come check him out and his amazing boot camp members in action.
