As I start this years neighbourhood bootcamp workouts, I really have come a long way....as I look back on my diagrams of a year ago. And then there was Canada Day. 360Fit is not usually open on holidays, but thought we'd run one class to see what the reception was. I volunteered to teach...as most know...holidays are my favorite to plan around. I planned for about 20 participants (wishfully thinking that many would show). At 8:50, there were about 15 or so....all good I thought. And then it happened....they kept coming...it was like the dam had opened, and members kept flowing through the doors. My smile got bigger, and my heart pounded faster! Back in November, this would have terrified me...trying to figure out how to accommodate that many people and ensure they got a great workout....but on Canada Day....I simply moved everyone outside...and we had a killer session!!
|the final count was 47|
This is why I do what I do...this is what makes the hours of planning worthwhile. When I get to high five folks at the end of a workout, and they are smiling, and dripping of sweat....I have succeeded. They have pushed their limits, became stronger...not only in body, but in their mind as well!
Like the opening quote said "When you follow your passion, you'll never work a day in your life". I love this aspect of my life and am so glad that I decided to follow my passion.
