|Lifemoves' Hilda & Alfred with client & fabulous RMT Julia Winter|
It was around May of 2011 when I was introduced to Sheila Hamilton of It's Time Fitness Results by a colleague who knew I was looking for a new space for Lifemoves® Health and Rehabilitation.
During our first meeting Sheila was kind enough to show me the plans for a building that didn't exist and dream she has had for several years. It has been a joy to see this space take shape from an idea, to plans, to the framed walls and into the space that everyone is raving about.
The afternoon started with clients and friends bringing in their spouses and kids. The children had a lot of fun running around the open turf, playing with the stability balls and having sword fights with the foam rollers. As the evening progressed the atmosphere became more of a casual adult party. It was really nice to talk to people for longer periods of time than we do when just in-passing between sessions.
It turns out that one of Sheila's long-term clients (who is also a good friend of hers) happens to be someone I know from nearly 15 years ago when I was cross country ski racing with the Nordic Racers up at Cypress Mountain. What also surprised me is that I know this gentleman's wife as well and have vague recollections of their son being born.
What makes this place special is not just the attention to detail with amenities and the equipment, but also the people. This includes the clients who use both organizations' services. It's Time's clients pulled together by fabricating signs, providing food, taking photos and bar tending.
Lifemoves® would also like to thank all of our clients, including Julia Winter (client since 2004) who have stuck with us during the last nine months of transitions, until we found a home that we are proud to part of and proud to bring our clients to. We also appreciate how welcoming It's Time's clients have been towards Andrea, Hilda and me.
Thank you Sheila for inviting us to be part of your vision.
