That’s right, this is Rob! Let me tell you what makes Rob a special part of today’s FIT LIFE FRIDAY post. Rob is a motivator. Rob is a hero. Rob is a challenger. Rob is creative. Rob is inspiring. Rob is an exceptional human being. Rob is a great father. Rob is wise. Rob is funny. Rob is caring. Rob is friendly. Rob is flexible. Rob is weak in all the right places. Rob is an artist. Rob is strong in all the right places. Rob is encouraging. Rob is a giver. And when you dig deep beyond all the extraordinary capabilities that Rob has, you find in there a special role—Rob is my Tuesday/Thursday night Turbo Kick instructor at 24 Hour-Fitness in Northgate.
Believe me when I say that he is Awesome Sauce to the max! He’s been such a vital part to encouraging me to get my lazy butt to the gym and get in a fun, high-energy, quality workout. My journey to reclaim my health would not be as possible or worthwhile without his efforts to be the best Turbo Kick instructor that he can be. So naturally, when our class found out that we would be losing our Tuesday and Thursday night classes due to some new classes being introduced (which cased some big scheduling conflicts), we knew we had to celebrate Rob’s bittersweet last night with us in the biggest and best way possible! A core group of my fellow classmates and I schemed together to organize a special NEON FLASHBACK NIGHT tribute to Rob, complete with bright workout gear and glow sticks. Here’s a peek into our special evening with Rob:
I cannot thank you enough for all of your encouragement and for your friendship! You are so much more than just a Turbo Kick instructor. You are a superhero and I am forever thankful for all that you’ve done to help me become the best version of myself. You’ve helped me make the impossible possible and have helped me embrace a healthy, body-positive lifestyle. Your time, energy, motivation, and ability to make fitness fun for me has NOT been in vain. Thank you for sharing your life and family with me and our class (especially that adorably sweet panda, Oliver!). Because of you, I’ve made new fitness friends and have learned to fight for my life in a whole new way! I hope that there will come a time soon when you’ll be back teaching at 24Hr in Northgate because that family (and my Fit Life) just isn’t the same without you! Keep up the great work and party rock on!
All my love and warm fuzzies,
Happy Fit Life Friday, Y’all!
