Happy Two Year Anniversary To The Protocol Massage!

We initially waited a year and a half to start offering massage because we couldn't find the right therapist. When Terry came along, we knew we found the right one!

In two short years she has not only built an impressive clientele of raving fans, but she has also earned the respect of her peers and is now teaching Continuing Education classes for other therapists. The massage school where she teaches has figured out what we've known all along... Terry rocks!

2020 has been a tough year for small businesses, and we are no exception. I'm extremely grateful for Terry and everything she has done to help keep us moving in the right direction.

Here's to many more anniversaries!

Ten Years Strong!


When this year began, I was feeling pretty optimistic… we were cruising into our tenth year in business and everything was looking awesome. I was getting an early start thinking about what kind of party I wanted to throw in August for our big 10-year anniversary. Then COVID was like, “Hold my beer…”

Many businesses don’t make it to year five, and of the ones that do, an even smaller number make ten. My optimism waned quickly as the drama of 2020 began to unfold.

For a while I was wondering if we’d even make it.

March was a scary month. April was even scarier. We did what every other business did: we pivoted. We gave out most of our equipment to existing clients and moved all training to Zoom.

The level of support from our client base was nothing short of spectacular. I was running with my head down for most of that time, but as I look back now, I’m in awe of the support that we received. Rent/utilities got paid, and no instructor missed a paycheck.

I’ll admit, I had some help. I won’t name names, but if you’re reading this you know who you are. I had former clients that haven’t trained at our facility in years offering to pay for a month of training to keep us afloat. Even our landlord went above and beyond. It was pretty amazing.

Now that we are open and things are more-or-less back to normal (whatever that means anymore), I’m still grateful that I get to earn a living doing what I love. And I’m beyond grateful that our ten-year anniversary came and we were still alive to celebrate (without the celebration part, of course).

Unfortunately, some colleagues were not as fortunate. Several gyms closed, with no hopes of reopening again. It’s been my observation that many of these are big-box gyms that were either too slow to pivot, or just had no desire to actually help people.

I’m not crying for these gyms.

They had an entire business model that was built around sucking a monthly payment out of your bank account, and hope that you never actually use your membership. I don’t believe in karma but…
For those that bent over backwards to serve their clients, they seemed to do ok.

Now more than ever, I hope we are living in a time where people truly see the value of our facility (and places like ours): Small, clean, uncrowded, and attentive. I sincerely believe that almost anyone who takes getting/staying in shape seriously can afford to train here.

I’m not going to lie, we’ve lost some folks this year (not to COVID thankfully, they just stopped training here). And we have more spots available in personal training sessions and small group classes than I’d like to see. But all-in-all I’m grateful that we are still here, still kicking, and still getting stronger!

If you’re interested in learning more about what we do, please reach out.

Thank you again, Tucson, for ten great years! We are looking forward to serving you for many more.
 



Another Type Of Fasting

I’m writing this post while on “vacation.” I use quotes because pretty much anywhere you travel, you basically sit around and do the same stuff you would be doing at home. Because of this, my wife and dog decided to get out of the heat and head up to the mountains. We’ve been here for almost a week and there is something just awesome about getting away to the cool trees, staying in a cabin, and doing very little for a week.

On our way out of town, we decided we were going to fast this entire week. No, not the food type of fasting (too many good restaurants up here). Instead, we were going to have a one-week media fast:
