    Orange Theory Fitness in Santa Clarita Valley it’s a small world

    Orangetheory Fitness Santa ClaritaIt Started…

    A few months ago – I was contacted by a person that I had never met – nor whom I thought I would ever meet.

    He was a caller who wanted to get information on a Santa Clarita property that was for rent/lease.

    I explained to him that we don’t handle those types of properties directly, but I would help him because it’s the right thing to do.

    The Return…

    I cannot tell you how many times, we have helped people such as he, not expecting anything in return, and had them refer those who wanted to do what we handle directly – Buying or Selling Real Estate.

    Having the person we helped, come back to want us to represent them, as a buyer of real estate, happens a lot.

    Philosophy – Help enough people get what they want without expectation of anything in return – and you will never be lacking in life!!!

    Me Fat…

    I have been hard at it and have lost 70 pounds since August 27th of 2015. I was 350 and as of July 16, 2015, today – I am currently 280 pounds.

    I have been taking a facial photo every day and full body every 10 days.

    One of these days, When I am where I want to be, physically and mentally – I will transcribe from my journal to a Blog that I will build – SCVfit.com and post the daily writings, “pain and suffering” entries, with the photos etc…

    I am no where finished – I will get to 230-240 and re-evaluate.

    But below, is what I needed….

    Off the beaten path…Fitness in Santa Clarita

    I wanted to buy Green Iced-Tea, unsweetened of course, from Starbucks. I left my office which is down on The Old Road, in Stevenson Ranch, thinking about where the closest Starbucks would be.

    While not the closest, I went to the Starbucks in Granary Square. I exited my vehicle and made a beeline for the entrance.

    The Pitch…

    A lady asked me if I wanted some information about Orange Theory – there was a table and folks with smiles across their faces…  I said I would be back – went inside Starbucks – ordered and waited.

    As soon as the barista completed my order, I headed outside and, being a man of my word, I stopped by the table and said, “You have 30 seconds to sell me…”

    Then one of those standing with the Orange Theory fitness shirts said, “Paris911 – you are Paris911?”

    My shirt said “Paris911”, being of a LEO background, I thought he was getting cheeky….

    It is a real small world…

    He then said, “Connor – your name is Connor…”  I was set back on my heels – I did not tell him my name.

    He proceeded to tell the young lady about a story when I helped him, several months ago, get connected to obtain a rental property.

    I remembered our correspondence and thought to myself, “What a small world – you never know…”

    Now, I was at a place that I had been looking for(dreaming about). I wanted to join some type of fitness class, but I did not like the local selection.

    It’s not one of these Santa Clarita Fitness Boot Camps…

    Drill Instructor Type of Military – belittling, screaming and telling the attendee’s they are worthless…

    Too Vain – owners too interested in how “pretty and in shape” they are to pay attention to their clients…

    Fitness Camps that Push past “healthy levels” – I have seen this more often than not – watching some of the attendee’s being pushed to the point of needing an ambulance…

    What it is….

    I wanted a place that had more of a science behind it and that was Brand New. It’s nice starting at a place at the beginning – being one of the “foundational” members. Plus – everyone is new – While I don’t think this is going to be one of those places where starting later will pose an issue, as in the ones mentioned above, New is Nice…

    I signed up. I’m all in. It came at a time when the time is not exactly “right”. Everything in my world is not “aligned” and perfect.

    But neither was it when I started to actively “rid myself of excess body fat…”

    If I have learned one thing in my journey – thus far, it’s this…

    Monday will never come and there is never a “perfect time” to start anything!

    Paris and Connor MacIvor

    Connor and Paris MacIvor are in the Top 1% of Realtors Nationwide, starting their real estate business in 1998 with RE/MAX Gateway - Santa Clarita Valley and Valencia CA. Their becoming licensed real estate consultants and representatives came from the horrible experience they had when they bought their first home. There were many things that the agent they had hired did not explain and disclose, which per law he should have. Getting that agent on the phone after they closed escrow and after he had gotten paid was impossible. Paris and Connor called the broker, the board of realtors, the office manager and all they received was the promise of a phone call back. The remedy did come, but not as fast and in the way they wanted. That act - that bad agent was the reason why Paris and Connor became Realtors. That was all they needed to vow to never let the same fate befall anyone else, that befell them. Today Connor and Paris are focused on client service. Protection and top-shelf service with regard to their real estate clientele. They primarily work within the Santa Clarita Valley and Valencia CA. However, for a referral, where 80+ of their business is referrals they have License and Will Travel to other parts of Ventura County, Los Angeles County, and Orange County to handle real estate transactions for those who trust their real estate operation. Writing on their Real Estate Blog is a passion. SCVnest.com/blog is where you will find over 10,000 real estate articles.
