Two years ago, I thought I was opening up a business to help people get in shape. I’d spent years at a traditional gym watching men and women avoid the weight lifting floor simply because they hadn’t a clue nor the time to learn how to work out efficiently and create changes. I was sort of excited but way more terrified than anything else.
Luckily, I have a husband who is a dreamer and believed in me more than I believed in myself. Today, I leave my studio each night feeling absolutely fulfilled. I cannot imagine my life today without my Breakfast Club, my Brunch Bunch, and my Evening Warriors. It is an absolute pleasure to watch my rookies understand proper movement patterns and accept challenges they once thought were out of “their league.” And, to my veterans…sometimes my brain hits the rewind button during one of our workouts and I recall who you were and how you moved before you made Sweat a consistent part of your lifestyle. I just am in awe of how far you have allowed yourself to travel…faster, stronger, healthier, and in love with the journey.
To top it off, I have a team of trainers that cannot be beat. Christy Scott, Eric Knytych, Diane Snell, Cara Gilchrist, John Bruss, and Karen Doehrman are as different as night and day in what they train and how they train, but their talent, education, work ethic, and passion is visible day in and day out. I cannot thank them enough for being a huge part of Sweat!!!
In short, October 16th from 5:30-7:30, I am not celebrating a business. I am thanking each and everyone of you for trusting Sweat and believing in us. We want you to stop by after work, eat, drink, shop, and enter to win several prizes along with friends and family. Your hard work and friendships have meant a lot to us these past 24 months!!
