New Decade, New Vision
It was on Thursday, September 27, 2007 that John A. Gale, serving as Nebraska’s Secretary of State, filed the Articles of Organization for Kennedy Fitness, LLC. Just days later, I was asked by 24 Hour Fitness and the United States Olympic Committee to staff the Olympic Games in Beijing, China. So it wasn’t until the following April that Kristin and I fully realized our dream of offering “Private, Professional, Personal Training” to the Omaha metro. Nonetheless, this newsletter marks the end of Kennedy Fitness’s first decade in business!
What began as two NASM Certified Personal Trainers with two duffel bags full of resistance bands, medicine balls, and some adjustable dumbbells (but only a handful of clients) has blossomed into a team of 7 outstanding trainers catering to a list of nearly 500 past, current and prospective clients. So where are we heading from here? Only time will tell, but we believe corporate wellness programming will be a significant factor. We’ve discovered we can help more people, in less time, for a lower cost per person, by providing on-site wellness programming at businesses.
With this in mind, we’re pleased to announce that we are re-branding our business to better reflect our new vision for this next decade: KENNEDY FITNESS: PERSONAL TRAINING & CORPORATE WELLNESS SPECIALISTS. We’re also very excited to launch WorkoutWhereYouWork.com. KennedyFitnessOmaha.com will still promote our one-on-one personal training services, but this new site will soon cater specifically to businesses and other organizations that wish to provide top-notch wellness programming for their staff and members without having to build such a program from scratch!
To all of you who we’ve met through the course of growing Kennedy Fitness these past 10 years; thank you. Whether you’ve touched our lives as a trainer, a client, or in some other way, we believe it’s safe to say we’ve been incredibly blessed to meet you, and we look forward to discovering what these next 10 years have in store!
Yours in health,
Robert M. Kennedy
President & CEO
