I Quit

Today I made the hardest decision that I've had to make in a very long time. I gave my notice at the gym. I will continue as manager until 6/20 but when summer is over I will go back to being just a fitness instructor. The needs of my family have to come first. I'll share more about my decision tomorrow.

I agree with Celina. It felt in your postings that you were unhappy with the time spent away from your home/family life and seemed like something had to give. Kudos to your courageous decision!

Thanks to both of you!!

I am breathing a lot easier now. It was a very hard decision to make but now that I've actually told my boss, I am so relieved. I thought I might feel some regret but I just feel a sense of peace.

Hi Katie! I ran across this blog & read your post. I, too, gave my notice at GOLDS gyms on the 21st!! I am a personal fitness trainer & group fitness instructor. I am leaving the "gym" environment all together to pursue another facet of the Health and Fitness industry. I understand your sadness. I've been in the industry for over 18 years. But, it takes "gals with guts" like us.... to finish one chapter and while keeping the book open... go onto the next chapter of our lives!! GOOD luck and trust in what you have decided.
