Samir Becic: Founder, HealthFitnessRevolution.com & creator of the ReSYNC® Method

My NativeAdVice:

Bio:

As former fitness director at Bally Total Fitness, Samir Becic created his own unique fitness approach. During his time with Bally’s, he was also named as the top Fitness Trainer in America four times, Fitness Director of the Year twice, and Bally’s Best of the Best Fitness Trainer. The founder of HealthFitnessRevolution.com and the creator of the ReSYNC® Method, Samir's work is featured in many top media outlets. His upcoming book, ReSync Your Life: 28 Days to a Stronger, Leaner, Smarter, Happier You will be released on October 31 and is available for preorder on Amazon here. He lives in Houston, Texas with his wife and son.

How did you get into the industry?

I’ve been in sports my whole life, but became very serious when I came from Europe to America and started working for Bally’s, the largest fitness corporation in the world. Because no one believed I could become the number 1 trainer in the country, I used it as motivation to propel my career.

Any emerging industry trends?

My nonprofit movement: Health Fitness Revolution is the future :)

Any industry opportunities or challenges?

The biggest challenge we have in America is the constant fight between the medical/pharmaceutical world versus preventative care/healthy lifestyle. In some instances, they go in such opposite directions that they mislead people. Instead, they should be working in a synergetic matter by combining the best of both philosophies to better our health and fitness.

Inspiration for your business idea, and your vision for your Business?

The original idea of Health Fitness Revolution is to create health and fitness information that is filtered, simplified and removed from all the bullsh*t (excuse my French). The future goal is to have Health Fitness Revolution as a global leader in the health and fitness space.

What's next for your Business in the near future?

My first book, ReSync Your Life releasing October 31st by HarperCollins/Thomas Nelson Publishing, uses my signature ReSync Method of training by using your body’s own resources to achieve ultimate health.   

Your key initiatives for the success of your Business?

Starting Health Fitness Revolution from scratch, rather than buying an established publication taught me that starting from the ground up is extremely challenging, yet rewarding and the best decision for my own growth.

Your most difficult moment at your Business? (and what did you learn?)

The most difficult moment of my business was to continue something with almost no results in the first three years, and continue pouring money, energy, and time for something that appeared in the beginning to be just a dream. But I never give up!

Ideal experience for a customer/client? 

Since my newest product is my book, ReSync Your Life, I hope that the readers will realize that healthy lifestyle is not only imperative to their health, but also to their professional success, cognitive thinking, and ability to perform to the highest standards that God intended them to be.

How do you motivate others?

I try to inspire people by using examples, encouraging open discussions, embracing frameless thinking with logic, facts, moral values, and spiritual balance. But mostly by performing flying push-ups on top of moving Jeeps :)

Career advice to those in your industry?

Have true compassion for your clients and their best interest at heart, always! This will not only lead to career success but also personal fulfillment.
