SCI-FIT Changes

Major changes are happening at SCI-FIT, which I (of course) am leery of.

Leigh left during Christmas break. Moved back to Texas; apparently she had been really missing her family.

Friday, when I was in, José told me that he's leaving in May. His wife is four months pregnant, and her company offered her a position in Dallas, which is only a couple of hours travel from their families.

Today, when I was finishing the FES bike, Bianca told me that she's leaving the end of next week. She's been doing the same thing, basically, for the last 10 years; seven of the last 10 years has been as a facilities manager. She mentioned that she's been talking to Berkeley Bionics and Restorative Therapies. RT is the manufacturer/dealer of the FES bike. Berkeley Bionics is working on exoskeletons.

That leaves Jerry from the people that opened the gym.

Ian and Brent were hired in November, I believe. Over the last couple of weeks the gym got an intern, Britney. She's just on Fridays and Saturdays until her classes finish off in May, then, apparently, full-time. I'm not sure what's going to happen with her in the fall. A guy named Chris just got hired, too. I don't know anything about him. And another guy is supposed to start next week. I don't remember his name, but he apparently has a background in massage therapy. Both Ian and José say he reminds them of José.

So, the entire gym staff, basically, has completely changed since the last time you were here.

I'm not good with change. The good thing is, I suppose, that I very rarely work with Bianca. And that there are periods of overlap...

Wow, okay, that is a lot of change. I am not good with change either and I hope that the people who come learn quick and gain your trust and respect.

I lost my monday person, permanently, and my Tues, Thurs, Fri person is leaving in a few months to start school. I am not complaining (out loud anyway) as I know it is for the best for them, but it is hard to see the people I know, and who know me and who I trust going away. To have that in your main gym and rehab facility which has helped you so much, and the founders themselvs go is very hard.

Will Bianca be coming back to talk about exoskeletons from time to time?
