I just wanted to send out a note to say thank you to the Fit Factory Fitness Team.
For the last three years I have been a dedicated FFF member…I’ll never forget class #1 at the East York Gymnastics Club; I met Tony for the first time and he gave me the speech that that we’ve all heard by now, “I yell and scream, don’t take it personal” and I promised him that (hopefully) I wouldn’t. I was looking for a workout that would challenge and force me to push past my limits – limits I imposed on myself of strength, pain and exhaustion – and as everybody knows that’s exactly what you get. Tony teamed me up with “Big Mike” in my first class and told me to keep up. Needless to say I wasn’t able to lift my arms above my head for a week afterwards and to this day I’m still trying to catch up with Big Mike! Those were good times for sure. From day one Fit Factory Fitness has been a perfect fit for me.
Fast forward three years to yesterday when the most wonderful thing happened. I’m just doing my regular thing and the GREAT Roshanda Robinson tells me that she really appreciates the effort I put forward in her class. I cannot begin to explain how proud that made me feel and I really think that is what Fit Factory Fitness is all about for me. I LOVE my workouts and I try to be positive and help out newer members to the classes, but I guess you could say that I stay to myself most times; I’m definitely not what you would call a social butterfly. However, yesterday Roshanda really made me feel special, and that makes all of the push-ups, mountain climbers, bicycle crunches, lunges, planks and those awful “Special Burpees” worthwhile. I’m still tired after every class, I’m still sore the next morning, but I leave each class with a smile on my face because I know it’s been worth it.
To think of how far FFF has come – first moving into the Yonge Street Studio, opening the second location at Monarch Park, and now the amazing King Street location; such wonderful growth makes me very appreciative of the hard work that Ivan, Tony and everyone else involved with FFF has provided. All Fit Factory members can share in the great success and incredible accomplishments that have been achieved. Job well done!
Fit Factory Fitness really is a family, and I am very proud to be a member.
