Dear real [FIT] life Fitness Family Members,
Today I have some important news to share with all of you. Some of you are members now, some of you are members of the past, but each and every one of you has contributed to the community that we have become.
I want to thank each and every one of you for supporting my vision in every way, big or small. I don’t think I could ever say thank you enough.
real [FIT] life is entering a new phase for 2022. Please know as you read this that the news I am sharing comes with eagerness and excitement as well as great pride about how far we have traveled and all that we have surpassed together as a community.
I will be closing the physical doors of real [FIT] life on January 30th, 2022. Our studio location at 8 Corporate Circle has been an incredible home for us these last five years and the memories here have been full of joy.
real [FIT] life is transitioning to online training only, with a couple different options for coaching support starting February 1st, 2022.
As I sat down one week ago and really crunched the numbers that involve sustaining a brick and mortar gym, with all that has changed over the past year and a half, I could no longer validate the costs in keeping our studio open.
Many of you know I have traveled a tough road for a good part of my life and have worked passionately but also tirelessly to grow real [FIT] life. I feel extremely confident and excited about this new phase of our venture. I’m also ready to carve out more time for myself to live a life with a tad more normality schedule wise as I enter into my 50’s.
I will be following up with more information around our online training options and what the Live Online Coaching schedule will look like for those of you interested in trying online coaching. We will continue to have live coaching available and our custom online program design membership also continues to grow. Many of you are already online clients with real [FIT] life.
I have been amazed to see firsthand the high level of coaching that is possible via online and I never would have thought it feasible prior to having actually done it. real [FIT] life now has clients all over New York State and even in other states. We have members I have never met in person, who are making amazing physical strides with our online coaching support.
Here’s a video that gives a sample of what our Custom Online Program Design Coaching looks like. And as I’ve mentioned, we will also have Live coaching slots available for those of you that still want my eyes on you in real time while you train. Watch the video here.
The beauty of online is that you can take your workouts with you wherever you go or wherever you want to train. Your program is centered around the equipment you have available to you, whether you’re at a commercial gym or at home. For our custom program design members, there is the additional freedom of flexible scheduling.
Please stay tuned for scheduling options as well as a special offer for those of you who want to give it a try, but aren’t yet sure if it’s for you.
Closing the doors to our real [FIT] life home has been a tough decision. I’m standing here now and looking at our logo on the wall and a lot of emotions come up for me. I also know that change is not to be feared. It’s to be welcomed with open arms.
This is the first time in a long time that I feel unfettered, driven, and passionate about fitness the way I used to. That is how I know we are headed towards something bigger.
Whether or not you decide to stay with me and real [FIT] life as a training member, each and every one of you will always be a part of our community. Our “doors” will always be open to all of you.
I thank all of you for believing in me.
real [FIT] life
