My hours varied each day. I typically would work in between four to six hours a day, depending on what needed to be done. I often would stay later, and not count the time towards my hours. The time spent after was usually to interact with customers. If I worked out, I often would run to the front desk and help customers when needed, or help Jeff. These hours were often worked Monday through Friday, but I also worked and helped on weekends. I did not count these extra days towards my hours.
June 11, 2017 - August 4, 2017
After I completed my hours, I would still come in and assist Jeff, Will, and Mike with anything they needed. I had no problem with volunteering my free time. I would work and interact with clients, and often assist with the day to day operations.
Mike Baker and Will Ashcraft formed M-Power in January of 2017. M-Power Gym LLC. did not officially open till June 17, 2017. Here is how it all started... Mike started a company in 2015 called M-Power sports performance. Mike ran sessions, camps, and workouts out of a trailer that was filled with work our equipment, speed equipment, and agility equipment. Soon as he began, the company took off. Mike began training personal clients at the Vandalia Rec Center and met Will Ashcraft. Will was a certified trainer at the rec. Will offered boxing classes and martial arts classes, as well as, personal training. Will always wanted to own his own gym. Mike and Will met and became friends. Will found a place for his gym and signed the lease in October. Will got Mike board and their plan was to split the gym. Half would be Mike's and half would be Will's. They would each pay their half of rent. As the process began, Mike and Will came to an agreement to form M-Power gym with the help of Jeff Baker. Jeff handled all of the legal work. Once the papers were signed, the build out began in March. It took four months to get the doors open with a lot of hard work and dedication M-Power Gym open their doors, and Mike and Will's dream came true! M-Power has been slammed with membership ever since!
