"Growth starts when you get out of your comfort zone. If you are always doing what is known and secure you’ll get stuck. Don’t get stuck, grow!"
Until age 25, I had a great but average life, worked a 9 to 5 in Switzerland, and enjoyed the freedom he had as an independent bachelor. But one day, after a long series of travel, I received a call from the other side of the planet that changed my entire life: “We’re going to have a baby!”
Although I was in shock and uncertain about the future, I knew what to do: take full responsibility. And so I left Switzerland, friends, and family behind and emigrated to brazil. What expected me there was chaos and disorder. On the one hand, many difficulties came with the foreign culture and a language I didn’t speak. On the other hand, I was pretty overwhelmed with my new role as a father. And my partner facing post-partum depression didn’t necessarily make it easier. Not to mention my day-to-day job and my side business GymPerformance, which both required time and effort. Besides, I was still working out and trying to balance my body and mind.
I think it’s safe to say that this was my life’s toughest challenge. I was lost, scared, and for sure out of comfort. And this is precisely when growth started to happen.
I became obsessed with self-development, pushed through very dark moments, and eventually underwent a huge transformation. When I moved back to Switzerland three years later…
• I wasn’t just an employee anymore – I became a business owner with my very own team. #GymPerformance
• I wasn’t an independent bachelor anymore – I became a family father with all the responsibilities and obligations attached.
• I wasn’t just a regular ‘gym bro’ anymore – I became the renowned fit dad who helps other fathers and entrepreneurs to get in shape.
Now I want to spread the word, share my journey, and help others transform themselves too.
