Announcements

Dearest Members,


We want to first start by thanking each of you for your kind words of support for the gym. Many of you have taken time out of your day to stop and tell us personally what this gym has meant to you and how the staff has changed your lives. I can honestly say that it has been our blessing to be able to serve each of you over the past 21 years. We stayed open as long as the government would allow and now, with Governor Coopers' order for all gyms to close, we must and should comply. We will close at 5:00 pm on Wednesday, March 25, 2020.


Our staff is continuing to work while we are closed to the public. We are making necessary repairs, updates and renovations during this time. Trainers and instructors are posting live workouts on our Facebook page. Our social media director will be posting daily tips and updates of the changes going on at the gym.


I, personally, want to thank each of you for your support. It has been humbling and the staff and I are deeply moved.


We have decided to suspend the monthly draft for April 20, 2020. We look forward to having you back at the gym ASAP and we will be READY!


I would ask on behalf of the American Red Cross that you strongly consider donating blood at this time. The Red Cross will be using our basketball court on Thursday, March 26 for a critical need blood drive. THIS IS THE TIME TO HELP! Our local Red Cross Blood Drive Director and I have extended the hours because there is an urgent need for donors. The extended hours are as follows: 10:00 - 6:00 pm. If you are worried about donating considering current events, we want to inform you that the Red Cross has protocols in place to ensure your health and safety while you donate. To register online click here.


Be sure to follow our social media accounts for the latest updates, workouts, and live virtual fitness classes.

Sincerely,

Deanna McElmon

Hi everyone. It’s Macie!! Most of you know me f Hi everyone.  It’s Macie!! Most of you know me from training or classes at the Gym.  I’ve been going to the Gym for over 15 years.  At first as a visitor when Brad and I were home on leave from the Army and for the last 10 years as a member, instructor and trainer.  I did not grow up here but spent glorious one week vacations on Emerald Isle as a teen and thankfully as an adult after my parents retired here.  I was born and raised in Emporia VA.  Enough said!!! I went to Elon College (not a university when I went) and with a degree in psychology, headed into the Military Police Corp as a brand spanking new 2nd Lieutenant. ⁣
⁣
I met Brad a fellow MP soldier in Alabama and we have been married for 27 glorious years!!! Brad and I both retired here with our son Zachary 16 and daughter Kaitlyn 14.  I served 20 years and then stayed home with my babies and Brad served 26 years before retiring.  I knew long before we came home that I wanted to work at the Gym.  I had taught Step at various installations during lunch and after work and even after 30 years, it’s still a going!!! No need to do the math🤪. It’s been a true blessing for my family and I to be a part of the gym.⁣
⁣
Not long after getting home we moved my mom in with us.  She is 89 and going strong.  She has dementia and it’s horrible, but she is one of the loves  of my life! ⁣
⁣
What makes this community and our gym so terrific is just that... the community!  I am missing you all more than words can say.  The love and joy you bring me is immeasurable.  I cannot wait to see you all again!  Hang in there, stay home and stay well!!⁣

For those who don’t already know me - since I lo For those who don’t already know me - since I low key live at the gym - my name is Jimmy. ⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣
Even for those of you that see me regularly, here’s a blurb about myself that you may not know.⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣
I was born in WV and in 2012 my family moved to the “252.” I graduated from Croatan in 2014 and went on to get a Bachelors degree in Exercise Science from USC followed by a Masters in Biomedical Sciences from VCOM/Bluefield College. My dream of becoming a doctor has proven very expensive so yes, at 23, I’m living with my parents again to avoid paying rent on top of my student loans.⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣
While I figure out what I need to do to get into medical school (other than take the MCAT again 😰) you’ll most likely find me at the front desk or, if my calf would cooperate, running down Coast Guard Rd. or the Cedar Point trail. ⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣
I am happy to be a part of the team at the gym, several members of my family have worked there in the past as well. Deanna has my best interests at heart and I appreciate her for taking me on as staff. ⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣
Obviously, all of this means my time at The Gym will inevitably end. Until then, I look forward to meeting new faces as well as assisting the members with whatever I can - even if it doesn’t pertain to working out.⁣⁣⁣⁣
