In 2013, I sought input from friends and family for a name to brand my personal training/wellness coaching business. Body by Jan and Fit Schmidt Fitness Training were two finalists among several similar suggestions. But both directed too much focus on me, rather than my mission. I wanted to help my clients get where they wanted to go, much like my blue bicycle had done for me for many years. As 2018 dawns, the Blue Bicycle brand has become something bigger, but the overall mission remains the same.
Blue Bicycle Health & Fitness won't promise that WE get results. The only person who can get results is YOU. Great facilities, classes and trainers help. But in the long run, only YOU can do the work. Only YOU can get yourself through the front door. Only YOU can control what goes into your mouth. Not just in January, but every week and month as the year rolls on.
We WILL promise to be here to help you set realistic goals and identify key habits that will move you toward those goals. We WILL promise to support you in developing and sustaining those habits for the long haul. As nice as it sounds, there are no silver bullets. Changes drastic enough to lead to fast dramatic changes are rarely sustainable.
What kind of results are meaningful to you? Where do you see yourself in three months...six months...a year? What changes are you prepared to make to get there? We are going to start the year off by asking you to take a few moments to consider these questions and then letting us help you be accountable in two ways:
- Writing a letter to yourself stating how you see yourself in six months. What will you be able to do? How will you have changed? What three habits will you add/change/delete along the way. We will have forms at Blue Bicycle for you to do this throughout the month of January. You can then place what you have written in an envelope (also provided), and address it to yourself. We will mail these to you in July.
- Share your main goal/intention by writing it on the white board that we will have set up outside of the Fitness Office beginning January 2nd. You can remain anonymous if you wish, but the simple act of writing it down and then seeing your goal every time you come into the club can be surprisingly powerful. Better yet, take a picture of what you write with your phone.
We'll provide the "bike". No empty promises. Just sincere support and honest guidance to help you get the most from the time you invest at the club. Great things are in store for 2018. Wishing everyone a Happy and Healthy New Year!
