My brother and CEO of Trap Fitness Alton Williams, Jr. turns 27 today.
Alton Jr. is the definition of determination and perseverance. Scripture states in Psalm 34:19 that many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the LORD delivers him out of them all. I have seen Alton Jr. persevere through many attacks of the enemy and always come out victorious with his spirit intact. I think this is a reason why God gave him the T.R.A.P. Fitness idea. Usually, the area of our greatest attack is the area of our greatest anointing.
This past October, my siblings and I drew names for Christmas Secret Santa gifts. I did not want any gifts. Instead, I wanted to achieve some personal goals. I drew Alton Jr’s name. He was such a source of wisdom, strength, and encouragement to me over those two months. More importantly, I started forming some habits that will serve me well for the rest of my life. A good coach can change a game. A great coach can change a life. Alton Jr. did both.
Also, my sister Sheronda and I took one of Alton’s T.R.A.P. Fitness classes on Saturday, February 23. We did several strength training workouts that drenched us in sweat. Toward the end of our circuit training, I got weary while doing the pushups. Alton Jr. got on the floor and did pushups with me to keep me going. I will never forget his act of kindness. It showed that Alton Jr. is a team player who is in the trenches with those he serves. It is one of the many qualities that makes him a great leader.
Alton Jr, for all the ways you have helped facilitate my growth and the growth of countless others, thank you! May 2019 be a year of great expansion, growth, and fulfillment for you. I love you to life! God bless!
