3 Years and Counting: Thank you!

IMG_6287Time flies when you’re having fun!  More often than not at Blitz Conditioning our fun-o-meter dial breaks because it can’t handle the crazy insane amount of fun that we have at our Studios.  Brett and I looked at each other for a moment this past week and reflected on what happened in the past three years; from deciding to launch this company starting off in a 300 square foot and 40 degree heat room with 25 members, to where we are now in two cities, with 8 trainers on our roster and over 250 people in our community.  This community has been built on the principle that people need a place to belong, a positive support system in times of change, and a camaraderie that extends beyond four walls and some weights.  We make a difference in people’s lives because we’re not afraid to push out of our own comfort zones and be the vehicle of change that people are looking for.  The members of our community aren’t all preparing for the next race or competition, most of us influence the people around us because we are consistent in living a health focused life even in times of troubles.  We take ownership of our actions and our reactions and consistently make positive changes every day.  Success has never been based on financials, recognition, or medals; it has been based on the number of people who we affect because of the execution of our values and principles.  Everyone has ideas but it’s the people who are deadly at executing them and patient enough to wait for the results that will see true success.

We wanted to spend some time and thank you for being a part of this community and journey.  The people we interact with both physically and digitally have always been so amazingly supportive, and it is only through your support that we have gone this far.  We’ve decided this year to turn more internally towards our community.  We want to get to know each and everyone of you more and understand what you truly need.  Companies are focused far too often on acquisition of clientele and forget to turn to their existing community and identify things that can be improved.  It’s our true desire to see that our members feel fulfilled and truly enhance their quality of life with us.  So get ready for some phone calls, coffee dates, excursions, and goal setting!

Lastly I wanted to thank all of you for your amazing support.  This past year has been a wild ride both professionally and personally.  I look to each person that I meet as someone I can learn, gain strength, and inspiration from.  There’s been many points in this year where I’ve felt the burden of the death of friends and family, the stresses of running a company, and growing into my position of leadership; but every time I feel like I am getting swept under there’s always people who come alongside who has been able to pick me up.  I was taught to be fiercely independent in my childhood but I grew to be interdependent in my adulthood.  I take credit for nothing in this life because I know that all that has been gifted to me is from the amazing mosaic of people that surround and support me.  I’m devoting my next year to really ensuring that I’m giving back to you all in my fullest potential; whether it’s in my training sessions, participating more in the Edmonton and Calgary community, or just making myself more available for individual time, I’m going to give back even more than last year.  As always, if there’s anything I can do to help, I’m a text message, a phone call, an email, or a tweet away.

Here’s to an amazing fourth year here at Blitz Conditioning!

Yours in best health!

Chris
