We recently (a few months back) celebrated our 5 year anniversary at 736 Granville St., and since January is a time people typically reflect on the previous year(s) I thought it would be interesting to take a look back on the past 5 years at GWA.
2007 - 3 people on staff (Jon, Troy, Warren)
Present - 9 people on staff (Jon, Troy, Al W, Al H, Shawn, Stella, Dougy, Andrew, Katie)
We started with zero independent trainers to 30 presently
2007 GWA comprised only the main side of the basement, but in 2008 we added the rest (3500 sq/ft to 5000)
We have raised over $30,000 for the Right to Play Charity
To date we have trained over 14,000 personal training sessions and have had over 15,000 group training visits
Since 2007 as a company we have completed 4 ironmans, 3 BC Bike races, TransPortugal bike race, multiple middle distance triathlons, x-country running races, road running races, numerous Gran Fondo cycling races, clients have participated in the Olympic and Pan Am Games, raced all over the world, the list goes on...
Goals for 2012:
Continue to provide training that is second to none in quality and fun (that rhymes...)
New York Marathon
Add a local based charity to our fund raising efforts
Continue to grow GWA and it's influence on health and wellness in Vancouver
Happy New Year!
