Jen Dufresne, owner of the amazing fitness studio Cross Conditioning Training, is celebrating the year anniversary of when she opened her business amid a pandemic. Not only did the studio survive, it’s thriving! All week CCT has been doing giveaways and special events leading up to the finale on Saturday which includes a schedule full of fun events. Read on for a message from Jen and to get details on what CCT has in store for Saturday! Cheers and congratulations, Jen! – Smarty Carroll
It’s ANNIVERSARY WEEK. I don’t know how the year went by so fast. I had a phone call with Rae Dillard this week (she was a founding instructor at CCT before relocating to Atlanta to open her own Madabolic franchise). She asked me if I was where I wanted to be at the end of year one. My response? Financially – YES. COVID? Are we still really talking about this so much? Some days it seems like I’m moving five steps backwards as it relates to reading and understanding updated guidance. I envisioned us having a big belated grand opening party last June without masks and indoors. That never happened, but as we cross the finish line of year one, we are going to take the time to party.
When I opened this space I knew that in order for it to be successful, I had to hire the best. In order to keep the best I had to give them the space to have some autonomy in the way they train (they don’t need to be micromanaged if they are good), I had to pay them well, and I had to give them the space to grow. I knew that might mean they would leave to do bigger things (ahem, Rae) and that excites me yet scares me at the same time.
Internally we have promoted and you may have heard some whispers about expansion. A goal of 2022 is to expand, BUT for now we celebrate. We have one of the most unique communities in Charlotte – offering one of the only workouts adaptable to all ages and backgrounds. We love a challenge (bring on the modifications if you need them). This week I want to sincerely thank each and every one of you for your support and I hope to see you in space soon.
