Time flies, but it’s true :October 1st marks the birthday of our little dream in green . Truth to be told, with what is happening in the Ukraine, Iran and the broader economic picture I did not feel like celebrating at first.
But as I was sitting there on Saturday, looking over a crowded gym and couldn’t help but feel proud, so cancelling wouldn’t change anything and now more than ever, we need feel good stories.
In a way, I compare our gym to the Gallic village of Asterix and his indomitable Gaulish warriors who adventure around the world and fight the Roman Republic ( the larger gyms in NY) , with the aid of a magic potion ( the best equipment in NY paired with exceptional knowledge about training and diet).
In the gym landscape of NY, we are definitely an underdog, yet we keep winning!
Personally, I think we achieved a lot in our first year
- Equipped the gym fully with all UK made Watson equipment, despite Covid delayed shipments and other obstacles.
- Won best personal trainer NY again.
- Best male Coach 2022
- Added more trainers
- Got us ( Jay) on a billboard in Times Square
But most importantly , we were able to create a place that can best be described as ” nice”. People like to come and train here because the gym is spotless ( thanks Jay), friendly due to the lack of douchey gym bros, yet has a very professional vibe to it.
Add to that the motivating green colours, and you can see why physiques are created here!
In a world that was difficult for the last two years and might remain so for a while, I am proud that we created another village of indomitable Gauls
We will see you on the 6th floor!
