Do you remember the TV show GLEE? When that show came out, I felt like I was watching a bit into my teenage life. I was that “sports jock” that was also a thespian and choral performer. When I was in college, I sang briefly with a small acoustic group. I wore my scrunchie ponytail with my baggie boyfriend jeans and white tank top…come on, it was the 90’s. Granted it only lasted a semester until my golf coach reminded me where my tuition money came from…oops!
You may be wondering why I am sharing this ANCIENT history…It’s an example of just one story, of one person that makes up this AWESOME community of athletes.
CHALLENGE: Share a “FUN FACT” below in the comments.
There are hundreds of gyms in the Middle-Tennessee area. They are filled with great trainers, training equipment, classes and people looking to improve their fitness level.
With all of that said, it is my opinion that what makes our culture of excellence special is the amazing community of people that genuinely care about each other. Health and fitness is a journey and like any purposeful journey it’s the relationships you form along the way that will keep you focused, encouraged and returning.
One of my favorite things is to hear ALL the stories. I love to see the pics of get togethers you all post inside our 4 walls and outside of them. It is fun to watch your triumphs and goals accomplished. At the same time, I love to hear the struggles as we come together to help you overcome and succeed.
”A man who isolates himself seeks his own desires; he rages against all wise judgement.” Proverbs 18:1
I am not here to tell you that one workout can change your life. I am saying that in one workout:
■ You may say something encouraging to someone who’s dad just passed the week before.
■ You may have someone tell you they are, “Glad you are here,” on a day that you feel incredibly lonely.
■ You may accomplish something you NEVER thought you could.
■ You may meet someone for the first time that becomes one of your FAVES.
■ You may have a resource that can help another to overcome a need or challenge.
■ You may hear someone else share a story of hope that speaks to something you are currently going through and it makes you feel like you are not alone.
HA! Maybe I am saying one workout can change your life…or perhaps someone else’s.
I do believe that with re:MOVE you get a family of UNIQUE, TALENTED, POSITIVE VIBE athletes that are sending ripples of transformation into our community. In a world that wants to categorize, label and divide, it is my prayer that WE CONTINUE TO BE INCLUSIVE of all that walk through our doors. And that we turn those ripples into WAVES!!!
