The gym job is going great and I’m really, REALLY, enjoying myself. I forgot how much fun it was just to be around people all day interacting, solving problems and accomplishing things.
In the past month I’ve made my mark on the gym…
Organizing a weekly yoga class.
Opening a Kid’s Lounge.
Creating a front desk reception area for our members.
Re-launching our kid classes.
Getting our flags hung.
In addition, I’ve been learning and managing our member database, increasing our social presence and, really, just trying to tie the community back together again.
Tomorrow we have three teams participating at a local competition. I’m on one of them and I’m really looking forward to it. I’ve been so busy that I haven’t really been able to connect with my normal 6 a.m. workout group and I miss them. This will give us a chance to just hang out. Plus, the weather is supposed to be beautiful!
Besides all the hands-on gym stuff the kids have been a handful. Ryan is in lots of clubs at school. Both boys have soccer winding down. And, you know, I actually like my husband and want to spend time with him, too! Plus, I need to really start studying for the CrossFit Level 1 certification course I’m taking in a few weeks. I read the materials a few months back but it’s time to really hit the books. Especially because a few weeks later I’ll be taking the CrossFit Kids certification course!
That’s right. I registered! TODAY!!
I was ecstatic they opened up a session just outside of Philly, only an hour and a half away. It’s Dec 12 and 13, which means if all goes well I’ll be kicking off 2016 with two fitness certifications!
I can honestly say I never saw this coming. When I launched this blog I was a new mom and an assistant professor at a community college teaching technology courses and just trying to break out of my yo-yo dieting cycle. Never in a million years would I have predicted this career change from technologist to fitness professional. I didn’t even predict the second kid! Ha!
Anyway, life is good and I hope to get back into the groove of blogging more regularly again. I find it’s not so much time that prevents me from posting but mental energy. After spending the day working on gym stuff and family stuff my brain simply needs a break.
