I haven’t ever been a fan of posting on social media platforms and as it appears here on the Agilis Fitness blog, posting on this blog either. Ha! I am usually on the side of media and technology that “less is more” and me adding more content onto the interwebs only adds more distractions and one of my favorite Shakespeare lines from Hamlet, “Words, words, words…” I guess I am more of an action guy…but at last…I now write a quick update on what has been happening at Agilis Fitness.
Through 2015 to somewhere in 2017, one of my clients and I took a dip into the sea of corporate wellness program management. Yes, we learned a lot. We learned that the corporate wellness program industry is a pretty deep sea and my business partner decided to retire and I decided to go in another direction. We did create a website and tons of modules and other ideas that I have stored away in my mind and hard drive. The website is Kinectus-Wellness.com.
Mid-way thru 2017 and will the end of 2019, I decided to go do some work in the film and television industry. Why? Well…long story short, a client of mine and I came up with an idea for a health and fitness reality-based TV show. Something that would be the antidote to ‘The Biggest Loser’ where people are pummeled into the ground and competing to lose the weight or ‘Dr OZ’ where we get to hear him have shows titled, “How to Stay on a Diet” while having someone come on the show and talk about green coffee (stimulant) to help decrease cravings for food…so you can “stay on a diet.” UGH! I ended up working on 5 shows, 4 seasons that were 5 months long, in the Locations Department. I learned a ton about how a show is filmed, produced and hustled across Los Angeles county, 5 days a week. All the while, I was putting my pitch materials together while working away from home 70 hours a week AND keeping an eye on the evolving health and fitness industry. Sheesh. It was a hustle…with some breaks in between of course…Hollywood shows have hiatus periods between production periods. (Thank God)
AND…a big AND…my wife, Kim, and I got married and had a baby! Yep, Esme Eloa Luz Chenevey. Born onto planet Earth November 27, 2018. She is an amazing specimen, for sure. Some say she is outright ‘magical’…and I think that is correct as well. All I asked for was a healthy and good-natured child and we for sure got that! She started walking at nine months and at 10 months she carried a ¾ full Nalgene bottle across the living room, holding onto the little plastic loop-handle as it wobbled side-to-side. That’s an asymmetrically loaded, imbalance inducing weight to carry after only walking for a month! Now, at 15 months, she’ll pick up a 4-pound medicine ball and walk it over to me. Ha! Human development is Esmazing!
On the future of fitness training and coaching, there is a lot of “pivoting” these days…as we all have been doing. Ha! (Ugh) The next form of exercise and wellness coaching for the future is still unfolding, and I will be updating those pages on the website soon. Agilis Fitness will be merging into Kinectus Wellness, Inc. which is also “pivoting” for a future business model to solidify. The Kinectus Wellness site will be transitioning to a health education and fitness motivation platform including corporate speaking events, wellness coaching/consulting for individuals and small businesses and online courses on topics such as the “Real (Heal) Way to Lose Weight” and “Navigating through Stress Toward Resiliency.”…just to name a few topic ideas…
And as always, be good to yourself,
