Where CrossFit Meets Moving

July 24th, 2017

CrossFit. It is the exercise that has taken the world by storm.

Not only a workout, but for those who adopt the practices CrossFit embodies it becomes a lifestyle. Its reach can be seen from the CrossFit athletes on social media and TV screens; to my dad applying the movements he learns at the gym in his job at Professional Movers.com.

For those unaware CrossFit is a high intensity fitness program that incorporates elements from several sports and types of exercise. The purpose of the movements practiced in CrossFit is to make everyday life easier.

Evan Jacobson, CrossFit athlete of 7 years and Rogue Fitness employee says “It is a lifestyle” and CrossFit is “Centered around the thought that I want to be healthy and active in all stages of life”.

CrossFit enables people to partake in all aspects of their live and not sit idly by and watch opportunities to live pass them up.

Workouts for CrossFit are intense. They push the athlete to their limit.

A typical workout begins with a warm up, then weight training, after this is the final workout. This extreme of a workout can sometimes seem daunting but anyone has the capability of becoming a CrossFit athlete. Men and women of all different ages can be found at these gyms practicing this lifestyle. A positive mindset is all that is needed to secede in CrossFit.

While the motions practiced in CrossFit may come off as intense they all serve a purpose. All movements used are modified from motions used in everyday life. Because, one of the main goals of CrossFit is to make day to day life easier it is important that the movements practiced at CrossFit are able to be applied to everyday life. CrossFit enables people to become an active participant in their own lives.

A major part of life is moving.  Moving homes, office spaces, and heavy furniture, can seem like a daunting task and are all occasions that the movements CrossFit teaches can come into play. It is important when moving to keep a strong core and have the proper from of squat to prevent injury. Both of these movements are learned, practiced, and refined properly in a CrossFit gym.

Professional Movers.com knows how important basic skills are for moving. Team members are shown the proper from and safe way to move items. Team leaders teach other movers proper moving technique on every job. Much like CrossFit, moving is as much about the individual as it is about the goal and the team.

Brand Camp Testimonial

December 5th, 2011

Brand Camp IV Detroit, Wayne State University: Tuesday, November 8, 2011

 

“A Terrific First Experience”


Brand Camp

Whether you are a part of a large business or just creating a new business from the ground up; Brand Camp University was a terrific experience to learn how to make one’s self and their business a brand.

I am a recent college graduate that was just hired as the assistant accounting clerk at Professional Movers.com in Walled Lake MI; and I am very excited about learning how to better improve our business with branding.

I was very fortunate enough to get to hear many of Brand Camp’s speaker’s stories and advice for improving and even starting a whole new business. At Professional Movers.com we strive on creating a stronger business to better improve the quality of our service for each customer and client.

Hajj Fleming’s; the creator of Brand Camp’s presentation was very insightful. Hajj was very passionate about connecting emotionally with your business. He explained that branding your businesses is about making sure your customers and clients have an emotional experience with your company. Branding is more than just creating an image for your business; but creating something that people can passionately relate to and share with others.

One of my favorite presentations was from Josh Linkner. I’m very excited that he is managing the Detroit Venture Partner’s Project; to help rebuild the Detroit area with new strong businesses. I really respect what Josh’s is creating by bringing businesses back into Detroit. At Professional Movers.com we just launched our Detroit Moving Incentive; where our company’s goal is to help pioneer Detroit’s latest renaissance by providing relocation discounts to the businesses and people who are leading the way by investing and repopulating our downtown. Josh Linkner is truly an inspiration to me because he challenges conventionalism by creating a unique brand that gets people’s attention. He even recommended a new form of brainstorming, where you and your business partners “role-storm.” Josh and his partners pretended they were the characters from Madmen; it helped with his confidence and creativity. It is important to always keep challenging yourself.

I really enjoyed seeing Melinda Emerson (“the small biz lady”) speak; she was extremely funny and had a lot of advice for starting a small business from nothing and creating it into something strong. You have to start a business that people are willing to pay for; you have to make your business stand out. The best advice Melinda gave was to really think about your customer in detail; who they are and what they truly want. The best guidance that Melinda offered was to find a professional mentor. She recommended a terrific website Score.org; where you can get free confidential mentoring from someone who has experience working in your particular field. The ending of Melinda’s presentation was really entertaining because she discussed the importance of getting yourself pumped up by having your own theme song. Melinda ended with a dance to her own theme song.

Overall, I had such a good time at Brand Camp University. It was a wonderful learning experience for a recent college graduate. Everyone, including the presenters was extremely friendly to talk to. I learned a lot of valuable advice to pass along to better improve Professional Movers.com.

Best Regards,
