A NOTE FROM OUR FOUNDER

This is my story…

After decades in the fitness industry, I have accumulated countless stories of friends, family, and clients who have battled substance use disorders; including myself. After nearly 20 years of battling an alcohol addiction, I can count myself among the ones who defeated this battle. This battle we face is a real issue. Anxiety and depression are two of the most common reasons I’ve seen people turn to substance use. For me, it was stress.

It was no shock, this deadly cycle reversed when I substituted these habits with a positive fitness and nutrition lifestyle. Since then, I’m happy to say I’ve witnessed many use the power of fitness first hand, as a tool in their prevention, recovery and as a catalyst to living a healthy life.

As a father I had to do this for myself, my son, and now I feel it’s my obligation to pay it forward. This is why I do what I do… why we are A Cause for Fitness.

Chris Herren’s visit to Marist greatly impacted our students. They appreciated that he was candid and direct with them about a difficult and real subject. He was able to connect with our students and the pressures that they face. The Marist community thanks Live Purple for the gift of Chris Herren’s presentation.
