STARmazing Race

9 May

Lucky13’ers, I want to tell you about an amazing….no, a STARmazing…event that is coming up in the Boston area that benefits a GREAT organization called the Starlight Foundation of New England.

Starlight Foundation provides entertainment and education activities for kids and families in the hospital and in the community to help ease their pain and take their mind off of what they go through each day because of their illness.  While doctors work to treat the kids, the folks at Starlight work to lift their spirits and help them have fun and just “be kids.” 🙂  They give kids struggling with serious illness experiences such as a first Red Sox game, a live musical, going to a rodeo, or even the prom!  Services are 100% made possible by donor and community support, which is why events are so important to the organization.  The STARmazing Race is also HUGE for Starlight because all of the proceeds directly benefit children struggling with chronic and life-threatening illness right here in the Boston area!

The STARmazing Race is on Saturday, June 16, 2012 from 11:30a.m. – 3:30p.m.  It is an urban scavenger hunt that sends racers on an adventure throughout Boston, following clues and completing crazy challenges!  [get your FITNESS on while supporting a great cause and having fun with friends!!!]  I hope you’ll join me in this race and invite your friends to do the same!!!

It is $50 per racer and you can race in teams of 2, 3, or 4. Registration gets you entry into the event, a swag bag, breakfast at the start line, and food at the finish line celebration at Game On! Fenway. We award prizes for the top three finishers and other silly prizes for best dressed, most team spirit, and more 🙂

My Big, HUGE, Exciting Announcement!!!!!!!

25 Apr

HELLO Lucky13’ers!!! I have some very special news and I have been practically BURSTING at the seams to share it with you all!!

Since 2010, Lucky13Fitness has provided one-on-one and small group personal training, Bootcamp classes, and fitness coaching to individuals of all fitness levels. From training sessions at home or in the gym to helping clients develop healthy lifestyle behaviors outside of structured exercise sessions, Lucky13Fitness inspires individuals to push past their supposed limits and achieve their goals.  As founder and owner of Lucky13Fitness, it has always been my dream to take Lucky13Fitness to the next level and help as many people as possible.  One of the ways I’ve hoped to do this is by opening my own Personal Training studio as a space for Lucky13Fitness to soar.  For a long time, I had a vision of what it would look like, what it would feel like in there & what the potential would be for a private training space.  I could see all these things in my mind’s eye but I knew it was not yet time for that to happen.  I put this idea on the back burner in my head and focused on becoming better at my craft, meeting people, & understanding what my clients want/need from me as a trainer/motivator.  I did everything in my power to prepare myself for when the golden opportunity arrived…

At the start of 2012, that golden opportunity presented itself right in front of my very eyes.  I was given an opportunity to create a new home for Lucky13Fitness and I finally felt ready to take on the endeavour.  For the past several months, I have been planning, researching, preparing and working toward making this happen.  I am FINALLY ready to announce and share with you all that Lucky13Fitness has its VERY OWN Personal Training studio HOME!!!!  I could not be more excited for this huge step forward for Lucky13Fitness and the “family” it has created.  I know that this studio will be a place where goals are created, worked toward, and achieved.  It will be a place where individuals will come together and motivate one another to push past their supposed limits and achieve what they once saw as a dream.  It will be a place where hard work, healthy habits, positive mental attitude and SWEATFESTS will combine to transform people’s lives.  It will be a GREAT place with AMAZING energy and I would LOVE for you to be a part of it all!!!

The Lucky13Fitness personal training studio will be opening early this Summer for one-on-one and small group training as well as BOOTCAMP classes and fitness coaching!  I will keep you all posted on the exact Grand Opening date as well as other details as they get sorted out.  For now, I am happy and proud to share with you pictures of the studio after it got a fresh coat of paint, new mirrors and rubberized flooring.  Check it out!!!!

The new home of Lucky13Fitness!!!!

Can’t you just picture yourself doing push ups, planks, squats and BURPEES!?!?!

This is the place where DREAMS will become REALITY!!!

As the photos illustrate, the studio is not exactly ready for opening just yet.  There is a LOT more work to be done to make sure that this space is just perfect for me and for my clients; I have a huge “To Do” list and I am crossing things off one by one!  To this end, I know I must devote all of my time and focus on my new journey and this means a big transition away from my current role at Beacon Hill Athletic Club as a full-time trainer.  The transition will be happening slowly and in a way that will allow me to maintain the training sessions I have with my current clients (don’t worry, guys, I’m still going to be there to kick your BADONKS every week per usual!!) but at the same time, will give me the flexibility I need to get the Lucky13Fitness studio up and running as soon as possible!!!!

I am SO excited for this endeavour and for the possibility it brings!! I will continue to keep you all posted on how things are coming along, and will continue to post pictures of the studio space as it gets more decorated!  Get EXCITED & ENERGIZED  for a new level of Lucky13 that will be bigger and better than ever before!!!
