Fitness, Family, and Community: The Power of Hometown Impact w/Aaron Degler
Jun 15, 2023 Season 1 Episode 17
Aaron Degler

From humble beginnings in Bowie, Texas, to becoming a full-time gym owner and entrepreneur, my journey has been nothing short of an exciting rollercoaster ride. Join my wife Kim and me as we share the story of how I discovered my passion for fitness at Tomlinson's Fitness Center and transformed it into a thriving business. We'll take you through the early days of juggling the food industry and factory jobs, the nerve-wracking open house of our gym, and the lessons we've learned as we built Synergy Fitness from the ground up.

Balancing family life and entrepreneurship is no easy task, but it's been a rewarding journey for our family. We'll explore how I managed to complete my bachelor's degree by the age of 40, showing my kids that age is just a number when it comes to achieving goals. We'll also delve into the challenges of owning a small business gym in a small town and how my wife and I crafted the business into something that works for our family.

Our gym, Synergy Fitness, has not only made an impact on our lives but also on our local community. We'll discuss how our gym has grown over the years, embracing technology and providing a supportive, loving environment for our clients. Ultimately, our venture has shed light on the importance of making an impact in our hometown, both through our business and beyond. 

So, tune in and listen to our story of resilience, hard work, and dedication, as we share how our passion for fitness and our love for our hometown have shaped our lives.
