Ironman is an international triathlon event consisting of running, swimming, and biking events. Athletes from all over the world gather in one place to complete a journey of 140.6 miles. They have just 17 hours to swim 2.4 miles, bike 120 miles, and finally run a half marathon of 26.2 miles. Though the best athletes in the world take part in this famous event, it is not just for the well known star performers. Ironman is available for anyone who dares and desires to train and test his or her physical and emotional endurance.
At the core, Ironman is a journey of perseverance, fortitude, stamina, determination, goal setting, and mind over pain. Only the toughest of athletes can make it through to the very end.
Are you an Ironman shop owner?
Auto repair shop ownership can be labeled similarly as “Ironman Super Fix Auto Repair” as well. Shops that consistently run over 140.6 hours of productivity per week, while open 17 hours per day. They swim in an average of 2.4 hours billed for each customer’s repair order. These businesses bike with an efficiency of 120% or better, then they run less than 26.2% on technician gross pay to achieve these numbers. Wouldn’t you agree that shops like this would undoubtedly qualify for the Super Fix Auto Repair trophy?
