January is here! Now what?

In the fitness industry, we often think of January as being a month of motivation and restarts. Many new faces are starting off the year with routines and ambition. There is something known as the January Blues and it is very real. Often our lives are busy from Thanksgiving through the New Year. We are decorating, un-decorating, filling our schedule with activities, dinners, brunches, etc. Once we flip the calendar there can be a big letdown we aren’t prepared for as our schedules start to lighten up, we are un-decorating, and we may find ourselves alone for the first time in weeks.

We found this great post on This Space posted earlier this month. Take a few minutes to look it over and find ways to help yourself or a friend before those blues take over.

October 2021 $100 Spotlight Winner

October 28th, 2021

This month we turned the tables from looking at what you are doing for your members to celebrating your boss. National Boss Day happened to land on October 15th, our Spotlight deadline. At NIHCA we love celebrating our boss because we have a good, superior, great boss.

As William Arthur Ward says, “The mediocre boss tells. The good boss explains. The superior boss demonstrates. The great boss inspires”.

We asked you to send us your video celebrating your boss, telling us how great your boss is and why.

Jenny from LeSueur Community Center sent us a heartfelt video telling us only great things about her boss, Allison. Allison has created an environment that allows them to be a team, work as a team, and to celebrate their accomplishments. Jenny said, “It’s awesome to have a boss who is on the same page as you and makes you feel like you are a value to the team”.


Congratulations, LeSueur Community Center!
