This has definitely been the summer of love, both professionally and personally, and I feel incredibly fortunate to have been the recipient of so much positivity and support these last few month thanks to the lovely ladies of the Gun Club.
The Ladies Gun Club was started with a holistic approach in mind. We wanted to not only provide an opportunity for women to come and get a great workout without the distractions of a traditional gym, but also to provide a deeper level of support than one might get in a larger, less personal environment. The ladies who came to the gun club provided each other with genuine encouragement, support, and accountability. New friendships were made, and existing ones were deepened.
We all know it's work to put yourself and your health first,
and so every little bit of support helps.
LGC uses the TRX workout system most of the time, enabling the location to be super flexible, so we worked out in the fresh open air where we were able to enjoy misty mornings and the beautiful mountain scapes. There's nothing like the smell of an early morning in Carrier park (sans flooding of course!)
On mornings when we worked out at Pack Square Park, as we finished, we got to see the rest of the town wake up, and there's just something really special about that.
There are so many memories from this summer! Who can forget the July 11th Birthday Bonus Class? When I pulled up to Pack Square Park, nobody was there and I worried that everybody had forgotten both the bonus class AND my birthday! Then, as if everybody had spilled out of a clown car nearby, all my girls (and some boys) came running over in head to toe costumes! Couldn't have asked for a better way to celebrate my birthday.
And if this all wasn't enough, on July 27th, I got engaged to Camp Boswell, the guy of my dreams!
I can hardly wait to discover what this fall is going to bring, but for all the things I don't know, there is one thing I do: Asheville is beautiful when the leaves start turning, and we are going to be outside as much as possible.
