Arlington Gyms | Fast Times at Colaw Fitness
This content was written for Colaw Fitness
When you join one of Colaw Fitness’ Arlington gyms, you will immediately become part of our family. We are a small company that is growing fast. As a result, the lifeblood that runs through our veins is the same that ran through it fifteen years ago. This is largely thanks to our members. It has always been because of our members. We cannot thank you enough for the wonderful joys that you have brought to our facility. Every time that one of our members walks in and smiles at us, it brightens our day. Therefore, we want to invite you to become a part of this family. It is similar to being a regular at your favorite local restaurant.
You support it because it would be sad for it to go anywhere. This is the kind of culture that we want to create at Colaw Fitness’ Arlington gyms. We simply ask that you play a part in it. At Colaw Fitness, we cannot think of what it would be like without our regulars. It is not abnormal for us to learn their names as quickly as we can possibly can. They inspire us with their kind words and their relaxed demeanors. This does not insinuate that they are lazy by any means. Truthfully, they are some of the most hardworking people that we know. We hope that you will join this family. For more information, call us at 918-766-3353.
It is normal for us to maintain staff members for more than a year at a time. Because of this, you will likely get comfortable with the staff that you see. Often times, they end up being friends. We are inspired by stories of people that come in without any other place to go. It melts our hearts to meet people that feel like outcasts in the world. Thus, it is an honor for us to welcome them to our table. We find that they are often the most gentle and kind-hearted people in our Arlington gyms. This is because they have often been the ones who have experienced hardship firsthand.
For some reason, this experience creates a form of empathy for all people within them. People that have experienced suffering firsthand often show the most grace to others. It is difficult to forgive people’s brokenness from a high tower. Thus, it is only when they have been brought low that we start to see kindness spring forth. Therefore, we are grateful when we get to be a part of this process or continue it in some way. It becomes a delight to help pick people up when they are low. However, it is even better when we get to see our members do this for other members.
At Colaw Fitness, we are here to support one another in and out of the gym. It is not abnormal to see members praying for one another when they are in the facility. Our culture thrives when people help carry each other’s burdens. The apostle Paul says that this is how we uphold the law of Christ. There are few better ways that we can do this than to truly care for our members. We do this in a number of ways. At our Arlington gyms work hard to create an atmosphere of welcome for all of our members. That being said, we try to avoid pushing people away with our culture. Though we are a gym, we do not want to be a typical gym that many have experienced.
Beginning a fitness journey is a scary enough process, but it is worse when people expect you to fail. This seems to be the consensus at most gyms. They seem to think that because you are not already in shape, that you cannot actually get there. We have the conviction that whether or not someone completes the task, that they are worth our time. Is that not what we are looking for anyway? Are we not looking for people that will believe in and encourage us? This is a commodity in our world. Therefore, we figured, why not become that from the beginning? With that in mind, we open our hearts to our members form the beginning. This helps create a sense of trust within our Arlington gyms that people do not feel elsewhere.
It is an honor for our members to trust us with their physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual journeys. Because of this, we want to treat the process with as much respect as we can. As a result, we treat everyone as we ought to. We treat them like a person, a person that wants to make serious change in their lives. When we believe that change is possible, it does not matter where the member is beginning. They can be overweight smokers with only one leg for all we care.
Certainly, this will come with its own difficulties. We certainly do not need to add to this pressure with our doubts. That would be silly. It is our role from that point on to simply remove as many roadblocks that we can. At Colaw Fitness’ Arlington gyms, we work by your side to cultivate healthy change where needed. Therefore, we do not feel like we could accept payment and do otherwise. That doesn’t seem ethical nor does it seem honorable to us.
With all of this in mind, we hope that you consider joining us at Colaw Fitness’ Arlington gyms. We are convinced that you will find it to be a hospitable environment for your journey. Therefore, we consider ourselves stewards of your work. As a result, we work to avoid hindering it in any way that we can. You are our commodity and with this in mind, we want to honor you with that work. Therefore, we hope that you consider becoming part of our family at Colaw Fitness. If you would like more information, simply call us at 918-766-3353. We would love to hear from you. Grace and peace to you.
