Wow, 3 more nights of training before we go into lock down again for the second time this year. You cannot make this stuff up, 2 lock downs in 6 months, for 6 weeks at a time. Sometimes I need to pinch myself to make sure we are living in 2020, How did the World get to this.
I'm just a simple man, I don't have the answers for you unfortunately....I wish I did. What I can offer is advise, if you choose to take it and use it is completely up to you.
We are all in this together, and we can all get through this if we stick together. I had a "Friend" who unfriended me on Facebook last night because I liked a comment that didn't support his view?? I was so intrigued by this, people deal with situations in different ways and he was extremely angry at the latest lock down order. Don't get me wrong, I was pretty annoyed myself with how well Mildura had been doing and to then be told we were going into lock down was a little kick in the guts. But to unfriend someone because their view is different to yours is bizarre lol, luckily I'm a big boy and not concerned by it at all.
My point here is that we need to work together, help each other and we will get through this. This news was super hard for me to swallow as we were just hitting our straps again this last month, but its out of my control and I just need to deal with the situation put in front of me.
A lot of people say things like "oh this place is like family" etc about their gym or club they are apart of, well you guys are exactly like that to myself and my family. I have been overwhelmed with the amount of messages I have received, it honestly brought a tear to my eye. You guys that have already gotten back to me about continuing your Membership through these hard times...well you honestly don't know how much this means to me, Priceless.
We will release a new online schedule this week, probably in the next 24-48hrs, and I implore you all to please get involved. We will do Boot Camps, Kids Jiu Jitsu & Adults/Teens Jiu Jitsu. It will be done via Zoom, it is soooo easy to be involved. Keep yourselves active, keep your minds active and stay in a positive frame of mind.
We have 3 nights left before lock down, lets fill these classes and have fun. I'm going to miss so much about you guys. Grace & Danni Dancing through Bootcamp, Argiro continually talking through Boot Camp, The progress of people like Kristin who last week I believe was the first time she left the weight on the sled. Tahlia making unpleasant faces through the whole bootcamp. In Jiu Jitsu, seeing our toddlers run through sequences that coach George yells out, our kids asking could they add this technique to what we had just shown. All of these things is what makes my weeks so enjoyable. People often ask, you work from 7-4 in your days job then come straight to the gym, why?? Haha, fair question, but the gym is where my love and passion is, watching you guys grow is my passion. Thank you for giving me that opportunity.
Lets get through this together, I'm always here for you guys if you need.
