Wow! It’s been way too long since I wrote a blog so I figured getting back into it I’d take it easy on myself and just update everybody on what the heck has happened in the last… forever since I posted. In short, let’s talk about me, me, me!
November of 2011 I opened my own facility! It was something that had been on my mind for years but not because having my own business was always something I aspired to do but rather I felt it was a need that was not being fulfilled in the Salem area. I have kicked around in the area’s gyms for the last 10 years and always felt like the focus was never in the right place; the members! They give you money, so shouldn’t you focus on giving them the best you can? Getting better and letting them reap the benefits of that?
I wanted to work in a place that was member focused and a trainer could make a good living doing what it is they love to do. That didn’t exist, so I made it exist. The first year has been tremendous and we are just starting year two and looking forward to blowing year one out of the water. Our members have gotten leaner, stronger and happier every day and I’m very happy to be a part of that.
Despite trying very hard to make this post as much about myself as possible, I do have to say that I am very grateful for all my wonderful clients, new and old alike. Some have been with me for years, following me from gym to gym and others have been with me for a just a few months. Some have moved far away and are no longer members of the gym but still stay in touch. Your support of the gym and excitement for your own progress has made a world of difference in keeping me excited and motivated too! You make my bad days good and my good days great, and I couldn’t ask for better clients.
Well I think that’s enough for day one of re-instilling life into the blog. I’d love some feedback on what you’d like to hear about in the future. Motivation, strength, fat loss, more stories about me, how strong I am, my devilish charm, whatever! Sound off!
