This is Debbie. She is An AMAZING human being and we ❤️❤️ her so much. Sadly, Debbie's husband passed away only days ago. She wanted me to share this with everyone so that she can help everyone be #STRONG like her. Please read. "Below is my testimony, a little lengthy but truthful.
Needed to get this to you, Larry is deteriorating, not sure if I will be able to wrap my head around this in the future.
Here you go:
I’ve gone to craft this letter a million times and am having such a challenge in baring my soul to you, it is so important that I do this right.
I didn't know when I walked through the doors on Dec 27, 2016, that lurking around the corner would be the most horrific time of my life.
I had been working out for 5 months when my husband became ill, terminally ill. This blindsided my little family and our extended families, there simply are no words.
When I am asked where I am pulling my strength from, my answer is simple and honest 'I am fit and I am strong', period.
The Village Gym and I are partners. As a member, I'm provided with the ultimate one on one training, my own workout regime tailored to my capabilities and the intimacy of small classes.
Yes, I am working out physically, but just as important, mentally I am encouraged to know that I can do anything. You never miss an opportunity to tell your members how you have the greatest faith in each and every one of us.
I am able to give the best of me to my husband, I am calm, strong, wise, the most critical qualities to exhibit at this time to my him and our son. Hands down and without question, I am able to do and be this because of the person I have become since joining The Village Gym Vaughan…no question.
So, as I go through this devastating time, because of the time spent at the gym and because I feel the healthiest I have ever been, I am able to face the scariest most horrific time in my life stoically. I am able to guide our 16 year old son with great strength and wisdom, I am able to hold these two worlds in my two hands and cope.
I would be none of this if I didn’t continue to attend TVG.
