A couple of weeks ago, I was running the 9:45 a.m. M2 class, and a light bulb went on in my head: “These people seriously do not get the recognition they deserve”. Particularly from the outside world, who do not have the privilege to see the work they put in on a weekly basis. It is truly remarkable the work capacity each one of our adults are able to endure, most of which who have worked 8+ hour days (or are about to) and have families to care for among a number of other priorities to worry about. It goes without saying, particularly with our evening crews, they are physically and mentally drained coming in, and they continue to endure a straight hour of pure physical
The other thought that entered my head is how thankful I am for the relationships I have formed with all of our adults. That alone is why I am in this profession: to create an unforgettable experience, form lasting relationships, and to make each person better physically, mentally, and emotionally in the time they spend with us. So with that being said, I, along with the rest of the Adrenaline staff, thank you for your commitment to fitness and a healthy, active lifestyle. I mean it from the bottom of my heart when I say you are all true inspirations and motivate me to improve myself on a daily basis. THANK YOU for all the effort and undeniable work ethic you bring to our facility, helping to create an atmosphere that facilitates hard work and support.
I certainly echo what Brian wrote. I am going to spin it to the early AM folks who get up in the middle of the night to bust ass at 5:30 in the morning! Who does that?! I’ll tell you who: Our legion of loyal Tribesmen and Tribeswomen who have made it a priority to include physical activity in their lives. If 5:30 am is the best time of day, then so be it. I am convinced that if something is important to you, you will find time to do it. Plus, it goes without preaching too much, but:
What else can make you live longer?
What else can make you acutely think better?
What else can make you laugh and smile more?
What else can make you sleep better?
What else can make you lose weight?
What else can change your life?
What else can reverse chronic disease and eliminate medications?
(And that is just a sample!)
Taken collectively, of course, the answer is activity! Thank you for choosing ASF as your home for fitness.
