You may or may not have heard the news – as of October 28th, 2015 the studio will have a new owner. Saskatchewan native Daris Tendler will be moving here in August and officially taking over as of November.
Daris and I will be team teaching the first session of the Fall 2015 series. This will give Daris a chance to get to know all of the clients and their unique conditions and injuries. She will be able to watch how classes are prepared, modified and taught. It will give me a chance to watch Daris teach and it will give all the clients a chance to get to know Daris. This will make the transition as seamless as possible.
When I listed the studio for sale I made the commitment I would only sell to the ‘right’ person and if that person did not come along, I would be closing the doors as of January 1st, 2016. I am so grateful the right person came along.
Am I retiring? Noooooooo, just transitioning into a new venture within the fitness industry. My Healthy Back Program is currently being created for on-line distribution and this is the direction my work life will take.
I hope people will be open and receptive to giving Daris a chance. I am very confident she is going to bring new energy, enthusiasm and ideas to our studio.
