After earning a degree in Exercise Science and devoting most of his early adult life to the Fitness Industry (including club management, personal training and program design, and sales), Preston started to realize that he was more interested in the systems, designs, and solutions that it took to run the business than the Fitness Industry itself.
Preston is proficient in tools needed for data analysis, database development, automation, as well as graphic, and web design. Given that he had always learned out of necessity for the specific problems that his previous company faced, Preston was able to manage a wide variety of technical endeavors. Preston has designed, developed, integrated, and managed solutions for nearly all aspects of the business, and have operated alongside every member of the team.
What’s the most rewarding part about your job?
The most rewarding part of my job is seeing the relief on a teammate or client’s face when I’m able to provide a solution to a challenge to help streamline the business.
What’s the most important piece of career advice you’ve ever received?
Someone once told me, “When a problem seems to have no solution, try to see it as a challenge that will ultimately pay off in the form of knowledge and understanding. There is no career if there are no challenges to overcome.”
What is something you can do better than anyone else you know?
I am quick at learning, adapting, and working under pressure.
