“Wow! I am so excited to be Client of the Month! Since I joined HG in October 2017, it has become a community where I feel inspired, motivated and challenged day in and day out. This pandemic has been a real game changer for all of us. Heather and all of the instructors have inspired me to keep showing up. They haven’t given up and neither should we! Instead of dwelling on not being at the studio, I look at the zooms as an opportunity. It’s a way to stay connected to a community I love. And I get to take more classes than I normally would! No excuses - we are a QuaranTEAM! And this month we get to sweat together outside - I can’t wait!” – Kelly E.
Until HG, I was the ‘Queen of Just Enough’ when it came to fitness. We have moved a lot - six times in 15 years! And in each place we lived, I would join a gym. But, it never stuck. I would show up once or twice a week and go through the motions. And I never thought twice about cancelling if I wasn’t in the mood or the offer of a coffee date popped up at the same time as a class. Could any of you imagine doing that as an HG member? No way!
When I started at HG, I would always look around in awe at my fellow members. You were all my motivation to get to where I wanted to be with fitness. So, I got honest with myself and realized that to get the results I wanted, I needed to put in more work. I committed to setting my alarm each morning and showing up for 5:15 am and 5:30 am classes Monday-Friday. I opened my mind and became willing to try new experiences like BUTI yoga and cycling. And don’t even get me started about HOT classes! I miss them so much that I turn my fireplace on when I’m zooming at home! The pay off for trying new experiences has been amazing! I’m more fit - both emotionally and physically. And now I can’t imagine not pushing watts/RPMs on a bike or pounding the ground three times with my fellow BUTI fans!
I love sharing the HG energy with my tribe of friends and family! If we have visitors from out of town, I bring them to a class! They all leave saying, “I totally understand why you love this gym!” And I’m happy to say that one of my favorite people, my mom Jean, is now a member! She was a member at the Sports Complex and it would have been easy for her to quit when they closed down. But she didn’t make excuses! Instead, she started zooming with HG and she hasn’t looked back since. I’m so proud of her!
I can’t wait to see all of you back at the studio again soon! And in the meantime, let’s be thankful that we have an amazing gym that is keeping us connected to one another and our health!
Like most, I unexpectedly became a teacher. And I’m covering every subject - from reading and math to PE - for 6th, 4th and 1st grade. I’m a list maker and I use to spare my kids from my lists, but not anymore. They each get a list every day of what they need to do. Schoolwork and chores are always on there but do something that makes you sweat shows up a few times a week, too! I’ve tried to come up with fun ways to get the kids outside. We’ve gone on neighborhood scavenger hunts and played family whiffle ball tournaments where I am always the last one to be picked for a team. Seriously, even the dog gets picked before I do.
HG is my energy gas station…it’s how I fill up and prepare for every day!
