Celebrating One Year!

8 05 2008

Here we are, one year later. It’s hard to believe. We were quite struck a couple weeks ago, when we were out for our first hike in a little while and we realized that it was on the very same mountain, the very same trail, nearly to the day that we had first decided to undergo the task of training to complete the “300” test. It was then a few weeks into that, that we began the blog.

In looking back, it’s been interesting to see the development undergone here. The very natural, very organic shape being taken by the shear act of taking one step at a time. Not overly concerned with the direction being taken, but rather wholly engrossed in the process. Now we find ourselves in a place, with a strong sense of who we are and what we do, what GYM JANE is and does….well, at least until the new lessons learned instigate and propel us onward to new stages of growth.

The last couple of weeks we’ve taken a look at and revamped the info above, regarding Gym Jane, as it pertains to us today. A year later, things have evolved:) We’d like to invite you to check it out. And for those who are new to Gym Jane and want a little more history on how all this came about, we saved the original write ups and put them under the “Origins” category.

Thanks to all who have followed the adventures of the last year and continue to follow and share in the journey, hopefully taking something away to your own. And a big thank you to all of you who have shared your thoughts and input. It is the primary reason for “throwing it out there” and sharing what we do. To connect and grow together.

We’d like to leave you with a wee medley. We decided, that to celebrate One Year of Gym Jane, we wanted to officially adopt our anthem. Something strong, something exciting, something inspiring, something……well something that will downright tug at your heart-strings……

See you on the flip side,

ae & s.

Hey! thats intense! 1 year now eh? Congrats! BTW, shane i would love some more info on the kettle bell thing and next time i see you to teach me a bit more about it. Since i went up to camp i have been going to the gym every night for about an hour(course there is not alot else to do so that helps) and i have been really enjoying it so i would like to learn more about kettle bells. K, later man!


Ps… Is your inspiration for the name GymJane from Jane from firefly? If i have a boy i have considered naming him after Jane. Core does not agree.

Jessie, we will definitely talk more on the KB. It just so happens to be one of my favorite subjects;).

The name was actually a bit of a spin on Gym Jones (check them out in the blog role and see the explanation under the “Origins” category), but poking fun at ourselves. Chris and I are both big Firefly fans and the song just seemed to fit perfectly, which is why we decided to use it as our anthem.

Take care Bro, hope things are going well up north and see you soon:)
