Happy New Year!!!!
My biggest news of the year so far is that I have took the leap and am working on opening my own Fitgirlsrock personal training studio (women only) out of my home. I am hoping (fingers crossed) to open and start taking clients as early as mid to late February. I am renoing my basement and while it is not a huge space I am fairly confident that it will provide all my clients need as well as fulfill my own training needs as well. You may be wondering what happened to my position at Gym Nation.....nothing...I am still employed there as a trainer but I felt the need to do this for myself but also for all those women who #1 may not be able to afford both a gym membership and personal training fees together #2 may also be intimidated by the gym or just shy in general.
*Coming soon to Fort McMurray,AB*
So that's my biggest news. We are at the painting stage, flooring next, wall mirror install and then moving in the equipment. I have gotten all my stuff from the Fitness Depot so far, well that is any additional stuff that I didn't have before. What sorts of equipment will this gym have? I'm so glad you asked...lol
Power rack/smith machine combo complete with chin-up bar, cable system and attachments
Olympic bar and plates
EZ curl bar
power blocks instead of dumb bells to save space
chin-up/dip bar for doorway
big a$$ tire and sledge hammer
I'm super excited about this endeavour so if you are in Fort McMurray, Alberta or know anyone who is, please pass on the word. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more info.
What else have I been up to? Another one of my goals for 2015 was to register and complete my ISSA Nutrition Certification. I just recently registered and so far I am finding the course very interesting and enjoyable.
Other goals are similar to other years; keep pushing on, keep beating PRs, some races will be had, some OCRs but I also want to focus this year on finding a good, comfortable balance.
So what are your 2015 goals? I'd love to hear them.
Until next time,
Stay fit and healthy.
