Still Growing

September 23, 2009

It’s great to see the continued interest in kettlebells.  This week, Shirlene joined the fray!  She is one of us early birds and joins Tyler, Dawn and I as the regulars with the occasional visit by Mike and Lyndsey.

Some good news, the Delano Herald interviewed me today and will be running a story on Core Fit ‘N Motion.  It was fun talking to a reporter about all the things we do: Kettlebells, Ropes, Bandit Loops, Bodyweight exercises, Barbells and Dumbells as well as how we use them, Core, Stability, Balance, Flexibility, Strength, Endurance, Agility, Quickness and Explosion; we work it all!

Here are some of the photos I sent to the reporter, we’ll see what makes the paper…

Family Affair

September 14, 2009

Things have been picking up.  This morning  we had Lyndsey, Mike and Dawn show up for the 6 am class.  Tonight we had Tana, Christine, Jackie, Jennifer, Sheila, Renee and Brittany.  Last week Tyler and Bobbie joined. Core Fit ‘N Motion is becoming a family affair.  Bobbie started on Saturday and is Brittany’s mom. Jackie and Christine also started on Saturday and they are Tana’s daughters. Tyler has been our paster for 8 years and feels like he’s part of our family and Lyndsey is my Taekwondo instructor’s wife. Not to mention, we also have Dexter and Jen (husband and wife) along with their son, Lorin, working out with us. To celebrate all the families, anyone that signs up for a new family membership during the remainder of September, can do so for $99 per month!

Also, due to popular demand we are changing the schedule a little. It seems as though 6:00 is too early in the evening for most of the members, so starting this week Wednesday, Thursday and Friday evening classes will be at 6:30 pm. The schedule page of the site has been updated to represent this change.


First Week!

September 4, 2009
It’s been a busy week, even though it has been short due to the opening on Tuesday.  Tuesday started with an intro with our newest member. Welcome Sheila!  Jennifer was going to start this week, but due to illness won’t be joining us until next week.  I’m looking foward to meeting her on Tuesday.  Tyler has also stated he will join, but hasn’t picked a time for his intro yet. Jenna stopped in on Tuesday, but hasn’t called yet for her into. I hope to hear back from her again soon.

I’m glad to say that we’ve had people here for each of the first four workouts. Dawn drove 37 miles from Andover to Delano to workout at 6:00 am on Wednesday and Friday. Sheila came for her first official class Wednesday night and we had 8 people here for the Thursday night class. I will be out of town for the Friday evening and Saturday morning classes, so I have left workouts behind and Renee will be opening the gym for those wanting to come in and try the workouts on their own.  Good luck to those that come in to work out.

Remember, we are offering a special $69 unlimited monthly rate for those that sign up before the grand opening open house that we will be holding in October!

On to the pics to see the space and some of the members in action!

We’re Open!

September 1, 2009

It’s been a lot of work to get the new space ready for opening, but we made it… Some little details to finish up, but for workout purposes we are ready to go.  Two people took advantage of the pre-opening special pricing I listed in the previous update. Welcome Sheila and Jennifer!!!

I will be holding a grand opening in October.  I’m not sure of the exact date. To celebrate the opening and to build class sizes before then I am offering additional special pricing until the grand opening – unlimited monthly classes for just $69!

I hope to get some pictures uploaded tomorrow.
