I guess it’s only fitting that I write this post the week of Thanksgiving.
Last year, I was fortunate to pull together all of our current clients at the time to celebrate the holiday with a gratitude video. You can check it out here.
And while I had the best intentions to do that again this year, I have been completely consumed in something that I believe is equally deserving of gratitude.
This is one angle of our new location. We have been fortunate to stay in the same plaza as before but we have taken over significantly more space (double the work space, actually.)
This has been an amazing process for a lot of reasons. For one, we’ve been in negotiations, preparations, construction and transition for several months now. When that much conversation happens between us and our clients, there is a lot to be excited about.
That’s not to say there hasn’t been a great deal of frustration with the move as well. Let’s just say, there are some industries that are very easy to work with and some that aren’t.
However, most of that is behind us.
As of this week, the city has given us the green light to resume business after having to temporarily cancel a couple of days worth of sessions to make the move and get our final inspections cleared.
Over the next couple of weeks, we’ll be finishing up the spot too.
As you can see, we’ve changed our flooring from carpet to mostly rubber and our turf shipment will be arriving in about a week so we can do our sled work year round.
Also, we were very fortunate to have had many of our clients help us carry tons and tons (literally) of equipment and weights over to the new spot. To be able to share that endeavor with the people who keep us operating was extremely gratifying.
So, while I’m on the subject of gratitude, I will say this as many times as there are eyes to read and ears to listen: Thank you.
Thank you on behalf of myself, trainers Megan and Julie, and our families who your support helps us provide for.
Thank you for giving us the opportunity to expand for the 3rd time in nearly 9 years.
What an amazing blessing.
Thank you to every person who has ever stepped through our doors and given us an opportunity to help. We didn’t always succeed, but we always grew as trainers for having the experience.
It is my sincerest hope that you all have a wonderful holiday season.
I can think of no better way than for us to be mostly settled into the new space to kick the holidays off.
If you’re currently part of the RevFit family, thank YOU for helping us get to this point. We are in your debt.
If you’re a former family member, thank you for giving us a shot once upon a time and we’d love the opportunity to work with you again.
And if you’re a potential client, we would love to show you what we do that has brought us this far.
Thank you. Happy Holidays.
