So it's 615am, and in fifteen minutes I'll be heading to the Magic Kingdom (that would be, the SAPT facility) to join the SAPT crew - along with a few awesome clients/athletes who're helping - to pack up our facility and move it to a new location. We will be doing this ourselves, as none of the moving companies returned our emails/phone calls. I have a sneaking suspicion that part of it has to do with the fact we're a gym. Sarah already gave some details on the new space, HERE, where you can see a few pictures. She has been working her butt off and been doing more "behind the scenes" work than I ever thought would be possible or necessary, so a huge thank you to her for helping us get the new digs!
It goes without saying that this move has been much anticipated. In case you were unaware, up until now we have not had a working HVAC unit, which means no climate controlled environment (yep, I realize this a first world problem, but still...). There are a four things I'm particularly looking forward to:
1) Air conditioning in the Summer. Training in the heat isn't so bad....it's just when you begin filling up the spaces between the keys on the keyboard with your sweat dripping that you know the 105ºF+ degree weather is a bit too hot for office work.
2) Heating during the Winter. Having your fingers stick to the pullup bar is always interesting.
3) Actual office walls. You'd be surprised at how many people feel they can walk, uninvited, into your office and snoop around when you work in a cubicle as opposed to an office with a door. Not to mention, it will be nice to place phone calls without music blaring and weights smashing in the background.
4) The same awesome, warehouse training environment with the concrete walls, no mirrors, and a large bay door.
This should be an all-day event, so, for you office workers in the crowd: If any of you are in the area, and want to help "undo" your day spent in cervical flexion, shortened hip flexors and kyphotic posture, you are welcome to come help. A gold star being the reward for your aid.
And with that, I'm out. Hope everyone has a great weekend!
For future reference, our new address is going to be:
