Now, don't get me wrong. It has been 'raining' but in a good way. First, I was made Fitness Director for an awesome wellness center that I currently train clients in. Although 90% of my clients are 'in-home' private training or internet based, I do train a few of my clients at a gym. Some clients just love a gym atsmosphere and want to save home for complete relaxation after a long day. It's been my experience, however, that most clients are incline to keep to their workouts if they know I'll be there waiting for them...at their front door. To each their own, I say. Whatever keeps you on your program/routine. I enjoy training in whatever space I am.
The wellness center moved into a building that tripled our gym floor space AND created two whole cardio rooms, yay! So, I've been interviewing potential group exercise instructors and personal trainers. Implementing a new software program that will streamline class enrollment, developing contracts, ordering gym equipment (oh what joy!) and that's just the start. I'll be posting more about this, so stay tuned.
Secondly, I had the privilege of being invited to give a Hoop Workshop to the Long Beach Junior League.
The Jurior League is an amazing orgainization that, in their own words,
"...is an organization of women committed to promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women and improving the community through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers. Its purpose is exclusively educational and charitable. The Junior League of Long Beach reaches out to women of all races, religions, and national origins who demonstrate an interest in and commitment to voluntarism."
Can we just say WOW! I was so honored to be invited to their team-building retreat. Hooping is an activity that invites fun and laughter, encouragement and edification. We learned, played, helped, laughed and relaxed. Such beautiful ladies who blossomed into beautiful hoopers!
In-between all of this, I'm gearing up to host a Hoop Workshop on Whidby Island off the coast of Washington State. My talented sister, 'can-do-anything' brother and creative ADORABLE niece all live there. So I'll catching up with fam and sharing the Hoop Love with new beginners. The workshop's topic is "Connect with you inner dancer by exploring movement and meditation while hooping". I.can.not.wait!!!
And not to forget, I had my One Year Saturday Morning Hoop Class Anniversary on May 19. It was such a blast. But I'm saving that for another post.
I've missed all of you but it's been an amazing two months and am blessed with work. And although there were times I literally fell asleep while eating dinner (my poor husband) it is all worth it. It's what I love to do.
