A special note from Anita!
My last day for a while!
I just wanted to take a moment and let you all know (incase some of you are not aware) that today, Friday May 6th is my last day in the gym for my maternity leave. In the last few weeks it has become more difficult for me to coach and be on my feet all day. Our little boy is due in the next few weeks and being home will allow me to rest (maybe a little) and finalize our lives for his arrival.
With that being said, I also wanted to take this moment and tell you how much I will miss being the gym on a daily basis. I have been coaching since I was a teenager and it is something that I really enjoy. I love seeing how you all progress and there is nothing more exciting to me than seeing someone get a new skill or to PR a lift. I also love seeing how each of you develop not only with your physical abilities but also with your mental abilities. I will also miss the amazing moments with you and the friendships we have developed. This has been an amazing year and we are an amazing community!!! Thank you for welcoming me in and I can't wait to be back to work out again with you!
I also want to take this moment to let you know that I have not left this gym without thinking of you the members and what will happen to you all when I am gone. I want to let you know that Rob and I have been working closely together for the last month to make sure that the transition of me moving out will only positively affect anything in the gym aside from you not seeing my beautiful face and growing belly on a regular basis.
Rob will be taking over as Manager (in a greater role than I was able to do) and I know he is going to be AMAZING!!!!! I am excited to see how his leadship will change this gym in a way that I BELIEVE will be a great for all of us in this community. So going forward, please feel free to contact him directly with any questions and/or concerns about the gym. He is the go to and will do all he can to make sure this gym moves in a direction of greatness!!!!
I will see you all soon and hopfully in the gym where I will be kicking your butts in Wods and looking and moving a little more normally.
Happy Mother's Day to all you Mothers and have a wonderful weekend!!!
