Making The Move
Some fun to-do’s are taking place today at Winner Circle Athletics… It’s move in day for Powerhouse! My mom and I have been taking trips from our home to Winner Circle Athletics and back moving the studio and office I have had stored in my family’s living room (God Bless them). I took over the house with all my stuff the past 5 months! Now it is FINALLY moving to Winner Circle. So, now that the grey wood floors and the matte black baseboards are fully installed in the Pilates studio the layout and “Industrial Modern” vision I’ve had is becoming more clear when I look at the space as a whole. My Dad worked so hard to complete the paint and baseboards for me over the weekend while I was away at Winner Circle’s 7 on 7 Pylon Tournament in Las Vegas – the football players balled out and got ranked Top 25 in the nation! Since the coaches and I have returned from Vegas it’s been go-go-go here at WCA in Corona!
Move In Day
I received my business cards from Office Depot. And the flyers I created with Emilio Rios (@EmilioRiosDesigns Instagram) will be ready for the public at the end of this week. Tonight, my game plan is to build Powerhouse’s office desk with my dad, and set up the printer and computer; so we can get my client registration going ASAP! I’m realizing theres still a lot of fine details that I need to take care of before opening this new business, but nothing I can’t handle by end of this week. (Registration is still TBD for both Pilates and Dance)
Besides today being move in day, another fun to-do this week is meeting up with the Dance Coach, Stefanie Mosby, who will be a incredible addition to the staff at Powerhouse. Her bio will be on the website soon! Thursday Stef and I are going to be creative, dance, and have some fun with the portable sound system Powerhouse purchased for the basketball/ sport court (where our classes will be held). Setting our warm ups and choreography – to original music by the way! will be a huge weight off my shoulders after this week. The BLACK Sport Court is being installed Thursday, March 5th as well! Yay! Questions and good vibes welcome : ) Reesh
Progress and Patience
It has been three weeks since we received the keys to Winner Circle Athletics. The Pilates studio is coming along… slowly but surely! The sport court (basketball / dance surface) is being installed March 2nd! Which happens to be BLACK! (My favorite color). During the build of the studio I have learned that with construction promises can not be made and time lines are usually not met. Thank goodness for my patience and keeping calm under the pressure. But, to be honest I am feeling very anxious these recent days! The Winner Circle coaches are practically fully operational at the moment – actually, tonight are their first official classes and practices! And I still have my Pilates’ studio floors being leveled and wood floors only half way installed! Pressures ON, Ahh!
What keeps me going are the messages I am receiving from friends, family, friends of friends and even strangers who are ecstatic I am doing this in Corona and are ready to take class once I get the ball rolling upstairs (21 steps upstairs to be exact) and on the court! So, I would like to say “thank you!” all who have taken the time to reach out to me, offered your services, visited the facility, checked in to see how things are going (because if I am your friend personally – I have sort of been MIA since the new year) and THANK YOU to those who have been voluntarily working with me during my training the past year! You helped me get to this point (and it’s just the beginning!). I truly could not have done it without you. I landed a “job” with a team here at Winner Circle Athletics I couldn’t be more thankful for. The commitment, opportunity, and support from my WC fam are huge blessings.

Don’t quote me, but I would like to say I will be ready to start classes (both Dance and Pilates) the 2nd week of March. Crossing my fingers nothing else delays the process… I mean, for instance, just this morning one of the five giant windows upstairs shattered! …Ready to catch a break and start the fun!
Okay, I need to go. I am currently building the Academy’s website as we speak with Eydie Stumpf! Can’t wait to launch it. Hope you like it and navigate through it with ease!
Thank you, for reading my first blog post. I read and respond to all. Questions and positive vibes welcome! : ) Reesh
