This Thank You card came in the mail yesterday. I had visited The Firm last Saturday to take Kelly Miyamoto’s class (she’s also the founding owner) in advance of interviewing her for an upcoming episode of the Indoor Cycle Instructor podcast.
Hat’s off to Eve who sent the card. She was able to decipher my horrible handwriting well enough so the USPS was able to deliver it 🙂
The Firm was the first fitness facility in the Midwest to offer “Johnny G Spinning® classes”. Kelly is checking on the exact date, but my memory is that it was 1995-ish = they could be one of the oldest (if not the oldest) of the original Spinning ®studios.
Flagship Athletic became #2 in 1996. I’ll never forget the day my wife Amy came home and excitedly told me; “John, I’m going to be trained to teach a new fitness class that even you’ll be able to take… it’s called Spinning and all you have to do is ride a stationary bike!”
Do you send out a real Thank You card? One that comes in the mail, not some auto-generated email?
