Hopefully you have been receiving our email requests to complete the Greenwood Athletic and Tennis Club survey. We have read and answered over 1600 surveys and more come in daily. Please be sure we have the email address of the adult members on your membership so we can hear from everyone. The survey has given us an opportunity to hear feedback and concerns from members. More importantly, it has allowed me, our AGM Barbara Lubbers and other managers to really get to know many of you via email, phone or, even better, in person. I have had the privilege of hearing the good and the “not so good,” all with the intent to make your club better! We read every survey, answer your questions, forward your positive comments and consider your suggestions and concerns.
Via the survey, emails and personal conversations, we have heard success stories from members completing the Fitness Challenge. We have had many types of challenges over the years but this one seems to have been the most successful! Members are telling me how their workout routines have changed; classes they have added, trainers they have worked with for the first time, their venture into our mind-body area to try Pilates, all the while gaining measurable results in weight loss, strength gain, or increases in endurance and flexibility. Greenwood is a 153,000 square foot athletic and tennis club with something for everyone. It’s easy to get “stuck” in a routine, but when you commit to trying something new (with the Fitness Challenge) the end result can be amazing. Here’s what a couple members had to say:
“I have had a great time during the challenge, love PowerFit and TRX. I had taken TRX with Kenny so I will continue that. I am so impressed with Brandon. I never had an opportunity to work out with him before. He is a terrific instructor, tough but kept an eye on all of us. I am going to make an effort to get to his classes. The Saturday morning PowerFit classes were fantastic. I trust Vic and Rob to kick our butts and keep us from harm. It was very nice to have the opportunity to meet the other trainers/staff as well. You all did a wonderful job. Thanks.” Carol Storey
“The fitness challenge has been wonderful. It’s provided the opportunity to see what other classes are offered and the opportunity to meet some of the other trainers. The weekend PowerFit classes have been great and Brandon’s Friday morning PowerFit class is fantastic too. He takes an interest and corrects your movements and encourages/challenges. What a fun program this has been. Thank you.” Susan Carr
I love to run, but my body has adapted to that workout so I need to do other things to see improvements. Our bodies are amazing pieces of machinery that need to be taxed in different ways in order to see gains. So, attend a BodyPUMP® class, try a new machine, meet with a trainer, do yoga, try a Pilates Reformer class or swim laps. Next time you are in the club, take a risk and TRY SOMETHING NEW!
