TIPS OF THE DAY
The last time my week started in a mess was the day I doubled down on Black Tuesday. It was March 2009 and I was working for Bank of America. I received a call from my boss which began with “you still have a job but…”. I don’t have the exact number of people fired that week from my division, but I felt like at least half of my team had left. Meetings fell off my calendar, emails came back “unknown recipient” and projects that had been underway for months came to a screeching halt.
I sat at my desk with little to do other than reading the farewell emails from colleagues who had been allowed to “wrap up” before leaving and organizing my desk. It was scary. I had the survivor’s guilt. I didn’t know what I would do because banking was all I had done since 1995. I was forced to examine my goals and my life. From this turmoil, Thrive Personal Fitness was born.
Now here I am, watching events unfold over which I have no control. Fortunately, I learned a lot from this experience in 2009. Since then, I have been cultivating resilience. I will take each day as it comes as we go through this health crisis. My current motto is “stay safe, stay sane”.
The first is that Thrive Personal Fitness is open for business – virtually. As of March 20, 2020. I will work with my current clients in person to virtually meet their needs. I have some great tools that I have used for years working with clients online, as well as a few new ones that I can’t wait to try. On April 1, based on public health recommendations and city policies, I will review this decision and determine how we move forward.
The second is that online personal training may be a great option for you right now.. If you want to stay home for your workouts and need a personal trainer to help you deal with nutrition and extra stress, I invite you to join my tribe.
