You are just 22, and with no experience, you paint houses to pay the bills, but then you had a dream to own your own gym…
Entrepreneur Tom Hatten had a dream to start a health and fitness business.
He took his entire savings of $2000 and built Arizona’s leading fitness empire: 17 locations; 1,400 employees, and 95,000 active members.
But Tom’s real life 30-year journey isn’t just an account of growing a successful business; his true story takes us to heady highs and crashing lows (including bankruptcy, jail time, and a horrific personal tragedy).
That’s exactly why when we were in Scottsdale, AZ. Last month, we had to make a stop at Mountainside Fitness and talk with the amazing Tom Hatten.
It truly is incredible what Tom has done in his career and with Mountainside Fitness.
It hasn’t been easy for him, but he’s always managed to keep moving forward, and growing.
