2013, Thank you. Hey 2014, you’re lookin’ pretty good!

Blitz Conditioning Edmonton HIIT Class

We’ve had a great year here at Blitz.  This amazing community has grown both in width and depth and in ways that we never thought could happen.  Ultimately success of a company like this isn’t measured in growth margins or butts in the door; it’s measured by the affect in the lives of those we interact with directly and more importantly how those people transform the lives of others.  We as a community have committed to each other to shed the things that held us back and strive towards bettering ourselves physically, mentally, and spiritually.  This cross accountability is something that can’t be bought or sold, we have created it through the synergy of energy that we bring daily.

I can’t thank you all enough for the inspiration, the wisdom, and the courage that you’ve provided to me.  I can only strive to be better than I was yesterday so that I can give back with my whole heart every single day.

Blitz Conditioning Stair GroupWe’ve planted the seeds of massive change in our society this year.  From assisting in fundraising campaigns both local and abroad in raising over $10,000 to foundations like Earth Water, Etisah Foundation, and Movember to name a few, to supporting athletes in preparation for competitions.  We will strive in 2014 to continue to care for the needs of others and truly impact the world.  We’re teaming up with some amazing charities this year like Bust A Move (details to come!), looking at some projects abroad to physically help out, and still supporting the previous relationships too.  Our Triathlon Club is promising to produce some amazing globally competitive athletes but we also want to focus on the everyday athlete and providing even more in depth care for all of us.  Blitz has always been a constantly evolving entity; that’s the beauty of responding to what the community wants in innovative and creative ways.  Our small community break outs like stair groups, off site workouts, running groups, and much more will be developing even more thanks to our amazing  leaders.  Our goal setting night on January 11 will be an amazing kickoff to this new year so please come if you’re in Edmonton and participate!

All these big hairy audacious goals can’t be accomplished without the amazing love and effort of you all.  Whether we see you physically or just interact with you online, you’re a part of this community. Whether you have been around since the beginning of this journey or just took a peek at these blogs, thank you for being you.


I hear time and time again like a broken record: “I’m making this new year about me” but I think that only tells part of the story; it’s too centred around benefitting ourselves.  My charge to myself and to others is the following:

Make this year focused on you but in a way that allows you to give back in a more deep and meaningful way.  

Success needs to be shared.  In 2014 let’s make sure that we live in the present.  Let us move beyond barriers that prevent us from seeking fulfilling lives!

Happy New Year and I look forward to interacting with all of you in 2014!
