Dear You: A Love Note to You from a Studio Owner

Perspective
Renewal
Mindbody Community


Dear You,   

Our clients, our community, our heart.  

I won’t reiterate that this is an unprecedented time—you’ve heard that already. I won’t say this is easy—because, well, it’s far from it.  

Instead, I’ll simply say thank you. 

I’ll thank you for showing up and sweating through our virtual classes, for buying swag that we’ll happily deliver to your front door, for continuing your membership for as long as you can, and for being the reason we’ll still be standing at the end of this—together.  

Without your support, your love, and your kind words, this would be truly unbearable. It’s hard enough we can’t see your shining faces in our studio every day. It’s even harder knowing how it’s impacting you and your families, too.  

But this is, and has always been, more than just a workout. It’s a community of people who genuinely care about you. I can speak for myself, our team, and our entire studio that we’re here for you. We’re here for one another. And we WILL get through this.  

For now, we’ll keep our eyes on the prize: the day we’ll be back in the studio. When high-fives and hugs abound and we can look back and say to one another, “That was crazy, but we’re stronger because of it.”  

If you didn’t know you were a part of a studio family then, you certainly do now.  

We love you. We’re grateful for you. We can’t wait to see you in person soon.  

Until then, consider this note a BIG virtual hug.  



Love,  

 

Your studio owner

Kyle House Fitness is Chattanooga’s premier fitness program offering group fitness classes and personal training with the best-certified instructors and trainers in the area. Located on Chattanooga’s thriving Southside, Kyle House Fitness is more than a gym, they pride themselves on building a welcoming and inclusive community. The owners of this gym, Kyle House and Kyle Miller (AKA The Kyles), may sound familiar to you since they recently wrote a blog post for us on how to be an LGBTQIA+ ally in the fitness space.

Since they happen to be one of the most influential duos in the fitness industry, we were eager to sit down and learn more about what wellness means to them. Ready to get to know The Kyles better? Let’s dive in.

Tell us about yourself. What led you to where you are now? 

We have always had a love for fitness. From an early age, we were both very athletic (swimming, gymnastics, and cheerleading). Once we graduated, we slowly transitioned into training young athletes and then later started working on our careers. Kyle House started personal training at a large gym and began building a solid career as a personal trainer and groups fitness instructor. Kyle Miller started working in marketing and communications ranging from politics, law enforcement, and tech becoming a leading public relations professional. After working in their fields for about 10 years they decided to combine their love of fitness with their experience and built one of the most successful fitness facilities in Chattanooga, Tennessee.

Wellness to us has always been about leading a life that is balanced. It's not all fitness, it's not all work, it's not all fun...
What inspired you to open your business? What motivates you day-to-day?  

During our time working at other gyms and visiting other facilities that many were either missing qualified and motivating trainers, topnotch customer service, or a workout that was balanced and would lead to results for everyone whether they were casual fitness enthusiasts or hardcore athletes. We are motivated on a day-to-day basis by the idea that we can always be better. The experience can get better, the community can grow stronger, and we can continue to show people that fitness is more than just a way to look good, it's therapy.

What does wellness mean to you? Has it evolved over the past couple of years? 

Wellness to us has always been about leading a life that is balanced. It's not all fitness, it's not all work, it's not all fun... it's not all healthy food, it's not just junk food—it's about finding a way to reach your own personal goals while still having a healthy relationship with fitness, friends, family, and food—otherwise known as the four Fs.

If you're in the Chattanooga area, you should definitely check out Kyle House Fitness to take your wellness routine to the next level. You can book classes on the Mindbody app or through their KHF app.
