A Foot in the Door…..

November 6, 2009

Happy Friday to everyone out there in blog land!

I have some really good news for a change.  I heard back on Wednesday that I was being offered the Fitness Floor Staff position at my gym! I went in yesterday and filled out my new hire paperwork and got a behind the scene tour.

I will be working some sporadic hours to start…filling in, doing the shifts when they don’t have anyone, but eventually will be working around 25 hours a week.

The great part of this job is they expect you to be certified or at least in the process of being certified as a personal trainer.  I get to shadow senior trainers and learn how to do orientations, evaluations and all the other day to day business of being a personal trainer.  My responsibilities are to keep the fitness floor neat and clean, wipe down machines, know how all the machines work, answer member questions, etc.  The ultimate goal is to be a full time trainer and there is a very good chance of that here.

I am very excited because my gym is VERY nice and part of a hospital group.  So it is a great place to work, not too far from my house and of course I get a free membership which isn’t too shabby of a benefit!

Thanks so much for all the good luck wishes and the vibes you all sent me! It was great knowing there were people out there that I only know from the blog, friends and family wishing me the best.

Hopefully this is the start of a long and fulfilling career in fitness.

I think this will also help keep me on track in my own journey.  Working at a gym, pursuing my goals and being around other’s that are health focused will keep me on track and push me to get to where I want to be.

So happy Friday to everyone!!!

I couldn’t resist my little babies yesterday…they were being so cute and sleepy.  Wish I had a nicer camera because these pics don’t do them justice.

Here is a little photo shoot Friday:
