This week I sit down with OG CrossFit games athlete and affiliate owner Jeremy Thiel. Jeremy is a pioneer in the CrossFit scene and he and I go back well more than 10 years.
About Jeremy → Action, hard work, dedication, and discipline were the tools he utilized to take $500 and build a million dollar garage gym facility, Crossfit Central, in less than three years. He built from the ground up. In 2005 Jeremy along with his sister Carey started by running boot camps in parks all around Austin. He worked from his one bedroom apartment day in and day out blogging, emailing and programming; strong relationships sprouted out of his emphasis on the importance of being heavily involved in the Austin fitness community. Jeremy laid the foundation for his future by hiring a strong team; coupling his drive with people who were passionate about CrossFit and dedicated to the company’s vision.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Jeremy is focused on challenging himself and those around him to consistent excellence. Blessed with the heart of an athlete, mind of a leader and an entrepreneurial spirit Jeremy is not only effective in his approach to business but also extremely gifted in motivating people to achieve their own goals. His intense drive and dedication to succeed in the life has laid the foundation for his innovative approach to leadership.
