Coach Meagan Heartfelt Message
Today we received two really heartfelt reviews that made me really stop and reflect over the last 8 years I have been with Get Fit NH. A lot has changed over the last 8 years for me personally and professionally, I almost can't remember life without this piece of my heart.
These are the two check in reviews that I saw today back to back that just made my heart melt. After you read those, scroll down to read my take on this....
Wow, right? I'm not crying, you are! So here is a little back story and heartfelt message from me...
8 years ago i had just come home from serving 4 years in the Marine Corps. I got home from Afghanistan in February 2012, moved back to NH in May 2012 and walked into Get Fit NH for my first time in October 2012. I knew that I wanted to be a coach, but I had no idea how I was going to use that talent. I was very lost when I got back as I was transitioning back into "civilian" life. I was more awkward than I can be now 🙂 It took a little time to figure out how to come down from 10 moves in 4 years. It was no coincidence that I stumbled across Get Fit NH. It was truly meant to be. I sent an email to (previous owner) Dean Carlson and basically just asked if he was hiring, he wasn't, but he entertained my curiosity anyways because he too was a veteran. I worked 8 hours a week at Get Fit NH after I met him. I coached with 4:15 and 5:30 class. After a few months I started working the morning shifts and the evening shifts and eventually we figured out a way to make this a full time opportunity.Truly a blessing. I think I was here 2 years before he started grooming me to eventually buy the business. In February 2018 when he came to me ready to sell I had a 1 and 2 year old at home so my reaction was WHAT!?! .....ok. And here we are today, 2 years later trying to survive the economic disaster!
But you know what?
Knowing what I know today I still wouldn't change a thing. The Get Fit NH community is so strong and so powerful and so real that I can feel that we are going to be okay, because it is a lot more than a gym membership and a lot more than a coaching facility and a lot more than a health journey. It is a family. I speak from deep down in my guts when I say that the Get Fit NH community is 100% the reason I was able to transition into a normal and healthy "civilian" lifestyle and I am beyond thankful for that and for every single one of you!
