The Key to Success: Faith, Family, Business, Exercise
George Elum, President of Elum Music Co., has been a member of the Massillon Family YMCA for his entire life. Starting his fitness journey when he was just a young boy, he has developed a love of personal fitness and he hasn’t stopped exercising since. He states, “When you do something every day for 60 days it becomes a good habit and that’s what exercise is for me.”
Currently visiting the Y two to three times per week in three hour increments, George has overcome several hardships regarding his health, including two hip replacements and a shoulder replacement. He mentions that the Y has helped him to quickly recover, getting back to his regular workouts in just a matter of weeks.
George stresses the importance of keeping faith, family, and business the three most important things in life. When you add exercise to the equation, you can achieve anything you set your mind to. “Just follow those three things and add exercise and they’ll work together to benefit you.”
But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness,
and all these things will be given to you as well
