Please tell me that you read that in a squeaky James Blunt voice...
I loved that track as it happens!
Anywho, the subject line is a serious one
We lost a great Fitness Camper last week, alas!
There was genuine sadness from the group (including myself)
I like to think that that's what we've become
A unit that experiences actual upset with losing one of the team
Kasey was going home (flying back state side) so had no choice but to leave
She really didn't want to though!
Here's the thing...
We have a lot of people that come to Fitness Camp
'Dip their toes in'
Come to SOME of the sessions
Never really apply the nutrition
Never really apply themselves
And then leave for (I guess) something else
When they don't get the results they wanted, from the work they didn't put in
(Searching for the magic pill perhaps)
And then we have people like Kase!
Who come along
Become a valued member of the group
Cement some solid relationships
Nurtured by the Fitness Camp Family
We see them getting stronger
Gaining more confidence
Getting great results
And then feeling genuinely sad about the fact that they have to leave
It pains me to lose a client like that!
One of the BIGGEST things that you can do to help yourself stay committed to an exercise program is to BECOME A PART OF SOMETHING
A group that misses you when you're not there
Celebrates when you are
Recognizes and congratulates you on your accomplishments
And calls you out on your BS when you're not performing at your potential or missing sessions (that's me btw ;)
Ready to step up?
To become a part of something much bigger than just an 'exercise class', 'gym membership' or 'slimming group'
Something that actually get's results (providing you do the required work)
Something to look forward to and feel a part of
We're here for you!

PS. Kase gave me a card when she left, tugged on the heart strings a little
I know that she won't mind me sharing it with you...
And I'd like you to hear what she had to say:
I know you're probably reading this Kase, so a massive thank you for your efforts with us!
Keep in contact :)
