    COACH LYNDA’S GOODBYE!

    - by Admin

    I don’t like endings. I am not too crazy about new starts either to be honest! I am at my happiest in the comfort zone of the known cushy middle part, where routine is the norm and every day’s tasks are laid out before you like a familiar friend.

    But in life, all good things do come to an end, and the time has come for myself and Cobus to move on to the next chapter of our lives.

    There are some special mentions I need to make of people that made each and every day just that much more awesome – from the dynamic coaching and dedicated admin teams, to the Concept Cardio class mates, the 15:00 Aesthetics Club, Girl Friday’s, Caileigh, Ruz and Kathy, Tash, Wessel and Marlize, Lisa and Craig, Andre and Jenna, Tia, The Lewis family, Tayla, Sean and Dani, The Cooke family, Bruno and Gazza, The Coetzee family, Mamoketse, The 18:30 crew, The CFJ / RFC and REF Families, The 2013 Regional Team, and every team mate that I have competed with, and of course not forgetting Imtiaz – who started us on this epic journey!

    I cannot mention every single member’s name or every single special memory, but please know that as cliched as it sounds – each and every one of you has made an enormous impact on my life, both physically, emotionally and spiritually and there will most certainly be a CFJ shaped hole in my heart.

    I can remember most of our member’s first class, or first time you stepped into the facility. I have memories of almost every one of you – and those memories I will cherish for a very long time to come.

    I leave you in the capable hands of the coaching team, who will continue to dedicate their time and efforts in making you better athletes and better at life! In the admin office, I leave you in the dedicated hands of Sean as Facility Manager and Tayla as Client Service Manager. They will be on hand to assist you in any and every aspect with regards to your memberships and whatever else you may need. Their dedication is unrivaled and I have full confidence that they will continue to take CFJ and Rebel Fitness Central onwards and upwards!

    Thank you to each and every one of you for making this past 7 years into an indescribably humbling, fulfilling and life changing journey!

    In closing, as always – Lekker Nag ne! 🙂
