For Linda Crowley, the first day of the year had always been set aside to work on new, positive beginnings and 1970 was no different. Her husband and children were by all accounts healthy and no one even considered the terrible thought that tragedy would strike before the day was over, and life as she had known it was gone.

“F” is for Fun

It’s Fun Friday, the day of the blog hop I introduced you to last week. This week’s letter is “F” and as you can see, for me, “F” stands for only one thing – FUN!

Many years ago, throughout the nineties, I worked the rental counter and taught children’s skiing at Lapland Lake Cross Country Ski Center. I loved fitting people with skis and helping them have a wonderful experience on the trails. I loved teaching the children’s ski school because it was so much fun watching a five year old actually “get” the rhythm of cross country skiing.

In the 2000’s I worked the desk in the gym housed within our school at Broadalbin-Perth Central School. I loved talking to people as they checked in and helping solve whatever problem they were having that day. When a new person joined, it was such fun to train them and get them started on a fitness routine.

Today, in this present decade, was my third day working at my new job at Koko Fit Club. Yesterday I was still a bit nervous because I didn’t quite get the computer and I really wanted to know what I was doing in case I had to help out a member. There were a lot of routines to learn and after about five hours of learning, then working out, I came home exhausted. Uh oh. Was I going to be able to do this? Today was a different story. I arrived and immediately set to opening up and starting the computer. I spent time on the computer with my trainer Sarah and soon I was updating people’s keys, helping people with their form on the Smartrainers, and organizing our work area. It was so much fun greeting people and getting to know everyone’s name. In fact, today was so much fun, I feel confident enough to go solo next week.

Work can be fun and rewarding when you are engaged in something you love doing and have a passion for. My specialty is figuring out where a person is and devising a way to start from where they are and set them on a journey to personal success. Whether it be adults or children, whether it be skiing, learning to read, writing, or fitness training, nothing ignites my passion more than watching a person take that first step on their own.

And so, as another day goes by, my job at Koko Fit Club as a fit coach is my idea of fun and…I have written.
