I want to be everywhere. I want to be a public figure and who's the public figure in the city? It's the Mayor...Mayor of Fitness.
We interviewed Mario Riveira aka Mayor of Fitness. He is the founder of a Fitness Company that provides top of the line fitness management and gym consulting services.
Mario is a precise example of someone who knows what he is great at and took his talents to build a successful business. Beyond his skill abilities, Mario is a determined, and ambitious entrepreneur who works extremely hard to achieve his dreams. Combine those skills sets and his entrepreneurial traits, and you instantly know why his fitness management company is taking over the city.
In this podcast, we talk about how it all began for him as an entrepreneur. From the evolution of where he is today, what motivates him to how important his health is for the foundation to everything he does. During our conversation with Mario, I discovered the many "hats" he needs to wear beyond just being a fitness trainer. Furthermore, on the lifestyle aspect Mario shares his insights on what healthy cocktails to order at the bar.
If you don't love what you do, you'll never succeed.
In the early stages of building his branding strategy, he realized the perfect public figure of San Francisco is the City Mayor. At that point, he decided he would base his business strategy and personal brand to emulate the city mayor. An individual who gets things done and someone you can count on for your fitness goals and aspirations. It's working too, he is now walking around the city and people are yelling "Mayor of Fitness."
As the public awareness of the Mayor of Fitness is expanding, he continues to hustle every day to build his company, brand and most importantly building relationships with his clients. Mario's passion to coach his clients and be part of their fitness journey is truly inspiring. You hear it in his voice; his dreams are big, he lives in a city he adores, he is doing what he loves and he is becoming the true Mayor of Fitness. He got our vote!
