Final Call Fitness and Nutrition in Vincennes exists because our team wants to change the way people in our community think about and act on their health and fitness. We are a gathering place for our community offering guidance that empowers people to feel confident in the way they look and feel, and have fun doing it. Our goal is to take care of our members, take care of their families, and reach into the lives of people in our community.
I got into the fitness industry because CrossFit saved my life, and I wanted to find a way to pay it forward. After returning home from a deployment in Iraq in 2004 I was literally lost. I struggled with survivor’s guilt for a long time, and it was negatively affecting me both emotionally and spiritually. In a nutshell, I was so unbearable to be around I couldn’t stand myself.
I knew that exercise could be a release for me, and my wife was an avid runner at the time so I started running too. Around that same time, my best friend had moved to Florida and got a job at a CrossFit gym as a trainer. He came home to visit one winter and talked me into trying a CrossFit workout. When I finished that workout, I felt like a completely different person. All of my guilt, anger, and sadness was gone. I was hooked. I had been looking for something to help me deal with all of the pain, and I had finally found it.
In 2017, I decided to open my own gym because I felt like there were more people out there who felt the same way I did. I knew that this thing I had in my hands could change things for so many people – and I was willing to risk it all to make an impact in my community. I just wanted to help. I wanted to provide guidance and support. The only way I could provide help on the level I knew my community needed that was to open a gym.
Since opening the gym, I’ve learned that it takes a team to impact a community. When Final Call first opened, I was the only coach. Over time I came to realize that I can’t do it all by myself. If I was going to be able to change the way people in my community thought about and acted on their fitness, I needed to build a team that could provide a bigger reach. We had to build systems, and processes that would help the businesses function, so the team could do what they’re best at – help people through quality coaching.
Today, we’re more invested than ever in coaching you toward your best life without the physical limitations that come with poor fitness and nutrition habits. We have a team full of adult exercise, nutrition, and kids coaching experts that guide you through the process of looking better, feeling better, and performing better.
