I have been trying to challenge myself daily to “step outside of my comfort zone”…
One day when I was standing in line waiting to treat myself to some luxurious lululemon attire. I noticed the ladies in front of me and I thought, “why couldn’t these women be my clients?” To me, they fit my typical client profile…and then I had this crazy thought, why couldn’t I just teach a bootcamp AT Lululemon!? I had vauge memories of scouring the internet and seeing lululemon’s across the country that had collaborated with local fitness instructors and businesses to host events (mostly yoga and barre). I told myself these memories were legit, and I told myself that when it was my turn to pay, I’d step outside my comfort zone and just ask! I had nothing to lose, right?…and I’m SO glad I did. Eliza was super sweet and brought me to the store manager, Natalie, who was so laid back and welcomed the idea with open arms 🙂
Now that I was past the fear of asking. I had somehow managed to get myself signed up to host a bootcamp with lululemon (no biggie, right?). By creating this little situation for myself though I was sort of forced to rise to the occasion. I would need to market & promote myself, design a bootcamp for an unknown number of people…but I also started to realize something important: I had a vision. I envisioned that I would do a give-away (because who doesn’t like nice gifts- that are free?!). I wanted my presence at lulu to have it’s own vibe, its own feel. So I designed a welcome board, signs, and themed my give-away bags to match. It gave me purpose and drive that hadn’t existed before!
What a way to kick-off a Saturday morning! I saw team-mentality competitiveness, laughter, and encouragement among my all who attended!
Thank you to all who attended! I had a blast and was honored to have the amazing team at Lululemon ask me to come back again!
