TODAY I AM 54
Today I am 54 and I am actually ok with it. Since turning 50, birthdays haven’t been great but this year is different. In the past I’ve been sad about aging and have felt melancholy about where all of the years have gone, but not this year. This year I have been inspired and infiltrated by YOUTH.
Last August, Mr. Jim Jalove, Bloomfield Hills Equinox Group Fitness Manager attended one of my fusion classes at Core Revolution. Jim had been in the Detroit area since May scouting talent for the first Michigan Equinox, the 97th Equinox location in the world. It’s been seven months since the club Grand Opening in December and I can honestly say that the opportunity to work with such a talented and dedicated team was one of the best things that could have happened to me at this point in my life. With each and every opportunity to learn new formats and grow with the company, the fact that I’m the oldest of the Group Fitness staff only makes me stronger and more motivated than ever before.
As I say goodbye to 53, I will fondly remember this year as the year I was invited back to the kids table, and I’m honored to be there.
