We had the good fortune of connecting with Rex Andrews and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Rex, can you talk to us a bit about the social impact of your business?
What I’m most proud of about Pathway Training is the community we’ve built. When you’ve put your fitness and health on the backburner for a long time and are trying to get started towards a healthier life, it can be incredibly intimidating and overwhelming. What we’ve built is an awesome community of people who all support each other and share success in accomplishing goals they never thought possible before. Over the last year, while everyone has been more isolated than ever, and bad habits have been exposed, it’s more important than ever to have positive influences. It’s been so great to see people rally around the idea of not settling for mediocre and striving to better themselves in a time where it’s easy to have all the excuses in the world of why they aren’t in the shape they want to be in, or why they will wait until the time is right. Pathway Training allows people to have a community that pushes for growth and drives us all to be better for ourselves, for our families, and for our community. An awesome example of this is our 2020 Case Study client Bobby Eldridge. He’s a husband, a father, and a community leader. Over quarantine and a year of chaos, he lost 114 pounds in 9 months. You can see his story here https://www.mypathwaytraining.com/blog/Bobby-1-Year-Transformation . I couldn’t be more proud of this growing community of “Pathletes” and the benefits of the group reach out into the lives of everyone we work with.Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
Pathway Training is a coaching business focused on helping people take control of their health, stop settling for mediocrity and find their path to fitness success. I’m most excited about the system we’ve built. We’ve tooken what has made our most successful clients successful and broken it down into a step-by-step repeatable system meaning we can predictably get our clients amazing results and take out all of the guess work. It’s been great to see our business grow over the last two years during such a chaotic time to be in the fitness industry. We’ve learned so many new strategies of reaching people where they are at, and using the resources they have around them to make their fitness work for them. More than anything, we want people to know that there is a clear path to being in the shape they want to be in, and they can enjoy the process of getting there.Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
Houston is such a cool place to explore you’d need at least a week. The first thing I take out of towners to is the Heights. It’s such a cool spot to spend some time. Start your day with Hugs and Donuts and end it right next door with Fat Cat Creamery. Taking out a bike in good weather and bouncing around some of the awesome breweries is a great time, and my fiance and I always love visiting the museum district and the centennial gardens. There are always new things to see and appreciate. Before you leave Houston, you have to stop by Memorial Park and pay your respects to the man himself and see the statue of Sam Houston with the Obelisk in the background.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I’d like to dedicate this shoutout to a mentor who has pushed us to grow in very uncertain times, Vito La Fata.
