I’m going to be bold and say something that I hesitate to say: it finally feels like we are turning a corner. Or, as I like to refer to it, we’re going back to “the time before.”
It seemed like the world had ground to a halt over the past year. The pandemic had deep and profound effects on the government and our families, schools, and businesses. Things were more hectic than ever and, for some of us, we may feel like we’ve been in a daze for much of that time. Are things better than before? Worse? Still, the same as they were before this whole thing started?
Let’s face it, many of us have let some things slip. For some, it was housework or work-life balance. For others, it was their workouts and nutrition. In any case, don’t be hard on yourself if you couldn’t keep up with all your responsibilities. You had a lot on your plate, and just being where you are now is cause enough for celebration!
At the Bodysmith, it was no different for our little gym.
Keeping our doors open during the global crisis was no easy feat. Today, I want to share three things I focused on during the shutdown that was vital to our success.
In the end, I’m proud of how the Bodysmith weathered this year. Our members have once again shown they are strong, caring people capable of overcoming whatever obstacles come their way. My staff has adjusted, taken on more responsibility, improved their skills, and grown into a more cohesive team.
I don’t normally boast, but It’s a good feeling that even though sometimes when the rest of the world was going off the rails, we were able to not only survive but to thrive.
I’ll leave you with this recent Google review from one of our members that makes it all worthwhile.
