Last week we attended the awards ceremony and luncheon at the Red Lion Hotel in Olympia. It was a great event, many local businesses attended. They put together a great presentation of all of the award nominees by category. We were one of 3 finalists for this award, along with the Lenai Café and Single Handed consulting. There were other categories for non-profit organization of the year, small business of the year, and corporate employer of the year. The winner in our category was Single Handed Consulting, a well deserved win! They are a business that works closely with the Department of Labor and Industries and injured employees to help them navigate injured worker claims as well as help them get employment after being dislocated. They have a great business model and it is easy to see how much they enjoy helping their clients. We enjoyed seeing the presentations of all the businesses nominated. There was definitely a theme within all of the companies nominated in that the business owners genuinely care for their employees and patrons and are deeply involved in our local community donating time and resources to many different great causes!
Although we did not win in our category, we are extremely grateful to be nominated alongside some truly amazing local businesses and to have our gym highlighted. We attribute the quick success of our young business to our incredible staff that share in our vision of providing exemplary physical training that is accessible to everyone and providing a family friendly, positive environment that give our members a place to call home. We also feel that our gym community has been paramount to our growth, as we have incredible members who welcome new people with open arms and support one another unconditionally. Thank you to whoever nominated Training Day and to the amazing people at the Thurston County Economic Development Council who chose as a finalist and highlighted our business. We look forward to many more years serving the people of Thurston County!! Be sure to check out the link below to see our video and others!
