Meet Wayne & Tammy Schmidt
Wayne and Tammy Schmidt have always been fans of fitness and keeping active and healthy. When the opportunity to purchase Gridiron Fitness Centre arose in 2010, they knew it was the ideal business for their passions and skill sets. Being previously experienced with business ownership, they jumped right in and never looked back. They enjoy meeting the everyday challenges that come with owning a business. Much like meeting fitness goals, they set and pursue business goals which keep them motivated and fresh every single day. They feel privileged to be able to operate such a modern facility, one that is comparable to those you would find in larger urban centres.
However, what they most love about being in business in general and being in the fitness industry specifically are the people with whom they work. The small, community-minded atmosphere of Dawson Creek makes developing personal relationships with their clients easy and rewarding. Working with people they either already know, or get to know through their business, adds meaning and depth to both business and everyday life.
Living in Dawson Creek has afforded the Schmidts many opportunities and benefits they would not have otherwise had. "We enjoy the familiarity of people, places and events here," says Tammy. Plus, as fans of activity and the outdoors, Dawson Creek provides them with many options for participating in fitness activities outside of the gym. They like to canoe, fish, hunt and go camping as often as they can.
