You'll never know if it's for you if you don't give it a try.
Kevin entered our studio over 5 years ago when his son Mitch told him that Mana was a facility for all ages and abilities.
He took on the challenge and is now part of our family and a big part of our MANA MEN program. He is creating his own legacy through our values of strength, family, humility and wellbeing.
Awesome work Kevin!
WHAT IS THE BIGGEST HURDLE YOU HAVE HAD TO OVERCOME TO FOCUS ON YOU?
Finding the time. My work took me away a lot and it seemed that when I was at home I was driving a son to some sporting event somewhere. Everything I did was for family – that was the example set by my father and I followed his lead.
WHAT DO YOU ENJOY MOST ABOUT THE MANA MEN JOURNEY?
Its about the journey. There's always a challenge that you need to face and there's plenty of encouragement from the rest of the group to help you get there
HOW HAVE YOU APPROACHED YOUR MENTAL WELLNESS, AND HOW HAVE YOU WORKED ON IT?
Shortly after starting at Mana over 5 years ago, I faced the most tumultuous period of my adult life, both personally and professionally. Keeping up my exercise routine, gave me something to focus on and it provided an outlet that allowed me to start to heal. Professional help was a part of the process and I'm glad I took the step to find a suitable person.
WHAT IS THE BIGGEST LESSON YOU HAVE LEARNED?
To quote Clint Eastwood (or Dirty Harry Callahan), "a man's got to know his limitations". At 57, I m not the agile athlete I once was and working within my capabilities is something that is a focus at Mana
DO YOU HAVE ANY ADVICE FOR ANYONE THINKING ABOUT BEING PART OF THIS PROGRAM?
You'll never know if it's for you if you don't give it a try. There's too many guys out there who think they need to face the world alone (I was one) but there is an alternative. Mana Fitness provides a place where guys can focus on the work whilst enjoying laugh and the support of everyone.
WHATS SOMETHING UNIQUE ABOUT YOU?
My left leg is 13mm shorter than my right
