May 25th – June 4th
It has been so long since I have written to all of you. In case you haven’t heard, my father’s battle with cancer ended on Tuesday May 29th. It was a hard journey for him to take in the last couple of months, but my family and I know that he is not suffering anymore. The transitions that families and friends have to make has really made me sit back and look at my life; personal and business. It is these moments in our lives that give us the opportunity to take a look at where we have been and where exactly we are going. It is these transitions that provide us moments to look ahead and see if this is the road that we really want to be on. I don’t know if any of you knew this, but my father started his business 48 years ago – he was my inspiration, he was my role model. And, no, he was not into fitness. I watched and learned a lot from him and even with his passing, I continue to do so. When I reflect on almost a year ago, we opened the doors at Coastal Motion. I was so nervous… had no idea what would happen. I remember when my parents first came down to the studio – they looked around and said, “This is a good space….build it and they will come.” Today, we are almost at our one year anniversary. Our Coastal family is growing and I want to thank each and every one of you for all that you bring to the studio. Without each of you, we would not be here. Thank you again for all of your support and I can’t wait to be back with my Coastal family soon.
June is the six month mark to a year – we are half way down the road to another year gone by. I am so excited as we enter June for a few reasons; We have a great running program that is being launched, we are also holding a training program for SPIN certifications, we will be launching the 8 week weight loss program and last but not least, we are just moments away from our one year anniversary since we first opened our doors.
As I think about June, it’s also the time of the year when most people have their fitness routine on the back burner. The month of June generally has warmer temperatures and allow for more outdoor activities. This allows many carnivals, festivals, and art shows to come to town. Summer is here, vacations are planned and kids are home! So, where does your fitness routine go??? The answer is “no where!”. It stays the same. I have been in this industry a long time and even if I’m not right in front of you, I keep very close tabs on every member’s progress.
Because we are a small studio, I can do this. And, because we are small, we can tailor the classes to meet your needs whereas most gyms and fitness facilities maintain the same schedule all the time. Don’t worry though… the times will stay the same for now. I may add additional classes as we grow, but that’s to make sure we accommodate our growing membership.
I am very eager to get back to you guys. Thank you so much for all of your understanding during this difficult time for my family. Keep up the hard work and I will be back before you know it!
