My name is Leo Frincu, and for those who don’t know me, I am the owner of Results Personal Training in Sherman Oaks, California. For the last nine months, things haven’t been easy for us business owners. I find myself in between a rock and a hard place. I’ve been dealing with a dilemma that has given me many sleepless nights and introduced me to panic attacks for the first time in my life. Every day, I choose between closing my business and saying goodbye to the American dream or staying open and fighting for survival. First, I am not going to ignore the risk of contracting the virus. But second, without a fight for the survival of my business, there’s the certainty of losing everything I’ve worked to achieve since I came to America. We’re all fighting this virus, one way or another.
I want to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has been supporting our Results staff and me during these challenging times. It means a lot to my team and to me personally. Being a business owner during these unprecedented times is one of the hardest things I’ve had to do in my life. It is not fun, let me tell you. The only rewarding feeling I get these days is seeing how helpful it is for people to have an outlet to de-stress, to keep themselves healthy and sane. I want everyone to understand that for many of us, keeping our businesses open is not a choice anymore. I would gladly stay home with my two daughters if I could. But I can’t afford to do that. The only thing I can do now is to provide my staff and clients with a safe and healthy environment.
My heart goes out to everyone who has lost a loved one or who’s fighting for survival. All our hearts go out to you. If there’s anything we can do to help during these extremely challenging times, please don’t hesitate to reach out. We’re doing everything possible to be here for you now and when things return to normal. In the meantime, stay safe and stay healthy.
Thank you, and God Bless.
