Passion. Persistence. Perseverance. Lone Star Council Forum
July 8 @ 8:30 AM - 9:30 AM CDT
Do you remember the moment you realized your passion? The reason you started your business? Switched jobs?
Larry North, Owner of Larry North Fitness, Author, Radio Host and Public Speaker, found his passion while working out at a near-empty gym when a guy walked in, then quickly walked back out. Larry saw the man, who weighed around 400 pounds, and felt compelled to seek him out and ask him why he left the gym.
The man’s response was that it was hopeless, why bother? Larry made him a deal: Come to the gym every morning and North would train him. Within a year, the man had lost a couple hundred pounds and North had found his true calling.
He found success in training others one-on-one but knew he could get his message of hope and health to many more people. His radio show came next, not because someone came looking for him, but because he called the radio station and pitched his idea. He got five minutes with the program director to make his case.
Larry’s “Better You” radio show is currently 32 years running now at CBS KRLD 1080am. He opened his 1st health club Larry North Fitness in 1989 at the prestigious Highland Park Village. There are currently 4 amazing locations in N Texas. His 1st book “Get Fit” was published in 1992 and was on the best seller list for 157 weeks. “Living Lean” and “Slimdown for Life” shortly followed, and all were best sellers and remain relevant today. In 1994 he created the “Great North American Slimdown” infomercial, and it became a global sensation the entire decade with over 1.2 million customers and generating over 150 million in revenue. His TV show “Get Fit” ran for many years on regional sports networks (currently Fox Sports) and shot 70 episodes!
