Let’s take a moment to assume that life is just a series of chapters each with their characters, with their plot twists and with their happy and sad moments. As any good author knows, there is a time to end a chapter, even though the temptation to keep it going is massive. It is time to make the difficult decision to end the Aspire Fitness chapter.
This chapter of my life has taken many twists and turns. Had many protagonists and many different storylines to follow. In the 15 years, it has taken us on many different journies, from climbing the modest inclines of Garbage Hill to walking in the footsteps of the ancient Incas. From the sands of Birds Hill Park to the shores of Jamaica. Those who have had a role to fill in Aspire’s story have their own different tale to tell. Many have shared with me what their time at Aspire has meant and how it changed their life trajectory. It is truly something special to be a part of that.
Although I am writing this with a heavy heart, it is important to clearly ensure that the weight I’m feeling is because of the people I’ve had the pleasure to work with. I have made life long friends, I’ve been privy to many hilarious moments, and most importantly I have been part of the positive steps people have taken in their life.
On August 31st Aspire’s doors will be closed for good, we will no longer have a physical presence but will live in the virtual sense. I will still be offering all the programs you’ve come to expect. The Aspire family will live on, the proverbial dinner table won’t be inside the walls of Aspire but in the friendships made and the memories to be had.
To all those who have played characters in this chapter of my life, thank you from the bottom of my heart and hope to see you in the next one!
PS: I will be answering all your questions on aspirefitness.ca if you have any questions please send them to me and I will be happy to answer them.
