S5: Episode 10 - Curt Tucker | Living Out Your Life Purpose
Have you ever found yourself wondering, “What’s my purpose in life?” Do you know your God-given passions and talents? Where do you turn to find your purpose? On today’s episode of the Overcomers Podcast, Curt Tucker will share with us what shaped him and where he found his purpose.
Curt is an entrepreneur, evangelist, and encourager who is husband to Rachel of 16 years and a father of 4. He is the founder of Gym Growth Experts, a marketing and sales coaching company focused on helping gym owners grow and scale their training businesses. As a multi-club gym owner and business and life coach, he is passionate about seeing entrepreneurs and gym owners build the business and life they desire. He encourages his clients to live what he likes to call the Champion Life!
Fitness has always been a part of Curt’s life. He came from a broken home. His dad was in and out of prison and he used fitness as his outlet. In 2008 he found himself an angry, abusive alcoholic and was in a really dark place in his life. This led him and his family into bankruptcy. They lost their home to foreclosure and had their vehicles repossessed. He is thankful and grateful that he had a wife that was willing to stick by his side through this adversity. At this point in his life he was lost, he didn't know what he wanted to do, he had no hope or passion, but things changed when he started the study The Purpose Driven Life.
Things started moving in a more positive direction in 2009. Curt felt like God was leading him to begin Faith Driven Fitness so he would be able to use his God given gifts and passions for good. He also attributes his success to having a mentor in his life who helped him create a new vision and prioritize the important things in his life. Curt sees the power and impact just one person can have on someone.
Over the past 13 years, Curt has allowed adversity to shape his life. He sees the value in building his network marketing company because in network marketing, the only way to succeed is to help other people succeed. Being people focused and truly caring for people has given him the ability to operate at a different level. To quote Zig Ziglar “You can have everything in life you want, if you will just help other people get what they want.
When asked what’s next in his future, Curt says he lives by his 5 “F’s”. Faith, fitness (physical, mental and emotional fitness), family, finances and fun. Some people might find it strange that he puts fitness before his family, but states he needs to be his best every single day for his wife, and for his kids. Ironically, when you really think about it, that means putting his family first. Through Gym Growth Experts, Curt will continue to help business owners not only grow their businesses, but also grow their lives.
