Many of you have told me that you’re intrigued by Alchemy but also intimidated. So here’s what I have to say about that: Alchemy is about not only feeling discomfort, but embracing it and pushing through. It’s a wonderful idea that you’ll carry outside the gym, as well. It’s about pursuing your own legend – whatever that is – and pushing hard – and then harder still – to get there. It’s not a contest or a competition with anyone but yourself. Breaking away from who you used to be and discovering who you ARE.
This place, and the people in it, have not only helped me to claim my fitness, they’ve also helped heal my heart and find my strength. Both physical and mental.
This isn’t a gym. This is where dreams are born and realized. This is home. I’ll join you for a class, anytime. Promise.
Shout out to the A-Team for being a constant source of light and encouragement and kindness and strength. And for always feeling like family.
