Ten Years After…
As Fitness Incentive’s 35th Anniversary passes, I couldn’t help but think how long I have been a part of such an amazing company… Or how long the company has been a part of me.
In the Beginning
I grew up in the nursery from the age of 5, when my mom, Diane, started her job cleaning at Fitness Incentive. I was fortunate enough to spend time with my brother and cousins in the nursery, as my Aunt Linda (Ms. Linda) was my babysitter. A few years later, I found myself employed in the nursery at 16 years old for my first job.
The Great Leap Forward
Fast forward to the present day, I am celebrating my own 10th Anniversary working for Fitness Incentive. From 16 years old to 26 years old, from working the nursery to the front desk to then on to becoming a Group Exercise Instructor, then becoming a Personal Trainer, then joining the Marketing Team, and now starting a new role as Personal Training Assistant Manager. Whew! Every stage in my career has come with a learning experience that I have used to excel in the stage that follows. As Personal Training Assistant manager, I am looking forward to contributing to the development of our already outstanding Trainers and the Personal Training Department as a whole.
It’s a Family
You can say I’ve had the opportunity to grow into a lot of hats over the past few years. Being a part of the FI Family presents rewarding and challenging work, opportunity to learn, grow, and advance, great work-life balance and ability to work flexibly, long-lasting, strong work relationships with my employers, my co-workers, and the community of members I am able to impact positively every day.
It’s most important to find the right balance between investing your time in an organization and investing in your individual growth. If like me, you find with the right company and the right internal opportunities, you’ll continuously encounter challenges that get you out of bed in the morning. This is where you can find both personal and professional growth. Growing in the same company for A WHOLE DECADE, I’ve been able to see the long-tail impact of every decision I make. I’m a long-lasting to witness how a small initiative grows and ends up as a high-impact success down the line. There is something special about seeing firsthand how a business evolves, and I am looking forward to being apart of the future evolutions of Fitness Incentive to come.
