My Last Weekend as Manager

9:00 on a Saturday night hasn't felt this exciting since high school! Here I sit, alone in my home with two dogs beside me, and the laptop that has pinned me to the couch now for several hours straight. Most of the day has been spent checking e-mails, making phonecalls, creating social media networks, double checking utility and other account information, preparing event calendars and schedules, organizing files and of course imagining a parade of fit clients running through the Brecksville Reserve Metroparks in their new Fitness Together T-shirts a few months from now. This personal training studio has been a major part of my life for over five years now, but the time is almost here when I can officially say that it is mine! I have worked long, and hard for this opportunity and I don't plan on slowing down anytime soon, but I know that I owe this moment to each and every one of you. If you are reading this first post on our blog, then I would imagine that you are a current client of ours; and, I thank you for the continued support! I also respect the fact that you understand what hard work and dedication are all about. Many of you are successful business owners, or executives, and it has been a pleasure to work with you and to learn from you. I can't wait until the moment when Kyle decides that we are allowed to share the news with you-- that I have purchased the studio from him! You have no idea how difficult it has been to keep my lips sealed over the last several months. There have been times when you ask me "what's new and exciting?" and I wanted to burst out with the news and my plans to grow Fitness Together Brecksville, and ask for your opinions and support; however, I would have to bite my tongue and wait patiently, replying "nothing much!" Well, pretty soon it won't be a secret any longer. I can tell you, and then ask you to please tell all of your family, friends and coworkers. I'm sure you can imagine that I have a lot of questions and emotions running through my head, but the one that I can not wait to hear the answer to is 'what can I do to improve your experience at Fitness Together?'  My passion is to help people in any way that I can, but especially when it comes to health and fitness. Over the last several years as the manager of this great personal training studio, I know that we have helped a tremendous amount of people reach their goals, but for me, it has never been enough. I have developed ideas of how we can continue to improve our great service and reach even more people in the community, and I can not wait to execute these plans! It's getting late, and I better get some rest because I've got a few big days ahead of me. This blog is really just a test because I've never created one before and am not yet sure how to post the link. Thanks for reading and keep checking back for more news from FT and our staff!
