2020 – where to from here for GEO?
I am not stating anything ground breaking when I say that 2020 has been a real doozy of a year! For many, it has been a year that could very easily be rocketed off to a black hole somewhere in the universe, never to return again to our reality.
I like to view it through a different lens. For me, 2020 has forced me to stop and examine what I am doing; to reflect, do a stocktake on my life, and make changes for the better.
Old habits, actions and “baggage” that didn’t serve me have been cast off. Things that I have procrastinated about doing, have been started. There is still more to be done in the context of both, but it’s a process.
And the same goes for GEO.
When it comes to the gym…..your Box…..your second home (for some), we have been through a lot and many changes have been made.
GEO has evolved.
We have closed down and reopened again; we have run online classes and park classes; the Coaches have pivoted through different methods of coaching; we have moved the rig and reorganised the gym floor; we have put on extra classes (4pm); we have reintroduced Talon and the Young Guns; we have reduced class size and increased class size; we have initiated strict cleaning protocols; we have introduced a heap of new people to the GEO community; we are running warm-ups outside; we have improved our programming; we have a podcast now, and the list goes on……
What other changes are coming GEO’s way?
We want to grow our community – introduce more people to this very special thing we have going.
Competitions are bound to start again, so we will look at doing some competition specific classes, and then get out there and show everyone what GEO members can do.
We want to get our Teens classes up and running again because there is a gap there between our Young Guns and our regular members.
We desperately want to start hosting big social events again so that you can all get to know each other better, and forge new friendships.
We want to travel again and do some charity work overseas.
We want to get you out of the gym to explore new challenges and activities.
And the physical gym will continue to transform into something better.
There’s lots to come. It is exciting to know that we have not reached our potential yet. Stay with us on the journey.
GEO will continue to GROW, EXPLORE and OVERCOME.
