One year ago today, I moved into my new gym with the help of a (strong) client, Katie, and my wonderful husband. On December 1, 2010 Katie, Jeff and I moved all of our equipment from our basement into her truck, then into the gym. What a day! Since then, we’ve added new equipment, re-arranged our set-up, added more clients, and have improved what we do.
I need to thank a few people . . .
I first need to thank my husband Jeff. Without him and his expertise, I’d never have opened this gym. He is my research and development. He is my continuing education. Even though I do all the day-to-day work, he provides me with constant advice, suggestions, and ideas on ways to improve the services I provide. From equipment purchases to the exercises we do to marketing and promotion. He is a wealth of info. Thanks, Honey!
Helen & Janet were a couple of good friends-turned-clients who actually helped encourage me to go back to training. It was because of some conversations we had about fitness and weight loss that I thought about training again. They are both dear friends and I’m glad I get to see them on a regular basis at the gym. Thanks, Helen & Janet!
Cathy & Karen, also are clients and are my biggest cheerleaders. These two ladies are a couple of reasons I’ve gotten so many new clients. Thanks, Karen & Cathy for referring so many great ladies my way. I’ll take good care of your friends!
I have to thank my sweet boy, Will, who helps me clean the gym every week. He is especially helpful when I have to mop. He is right there with me lifting and moving equipment so I can mop after he vacuums the floor. Thanks, Will!
Finally, I want to thank all of my clients for showing up. They show up to workout when they are less than motivated. They show up when they aren’t feeling well. They work hard. They are tough. They want to be fit. They want to be strong. Without them, I’d have no business. Thanks, Ladies! Everyday, you make me want to go to work. What more can a girl want?
Thanks for all the help and support, Everyone! It’s been a great first year in business.
