Lesson from my trip to NYC…

Lesson from my trip to NYC…

New York City is crazy! The TALL buildings, LOUD noises (and people) the AMOUNT of places to see and food to enjoy is darn near infinite when you only have a few days.

After speaking with my ‘NYC Coach’ he gave me options I […] Read more

CPM Elevator Pitch

CPM Elevator Pitch

“You are looking fantastic! What have you been doing?”

How do you respond?
What is CPMFITness?
How can you convey such awesomeness to your friend?

The concept of an Elevator Pitch comes from the business world.
