Just Another Day at CP: Sweating, Grunting, Breaking PR’s and, Selling Girlscout Cookies?
If there’s one thing I’ve learned since we’ve opened Cressey Performance, it’s that while we’re absolutely about getting people leaner, faster, and/or stronger- whether they’re an athlete or not- you can’t deny the overwhelming sense of “community” and camaraderie that exists on a day-to-day basis. Take yesterday for example. Below is the sign that greeted every client that walked into the facility.
One of our longest tenured clients and resident CP-mom, Steph H-B, mentioned that her daughter was selling Girl Scout cookies this month. Of note, Steph is currently smack dab in the middle of Warp Speed Fat Loss, so the mere mention of a carb, let alone a cookie, makes her, well, I don’t want to talk about it.
As such, apparently there’s this other mom in the troop that is a raving beeeotch (my words, not hers), and Steph mentioned how it would make her day if she ended up selling more boxes than her. Needless to say, she had us at Thin Mints.
Within minutes, Toronto Blue-Jays’ Organizational Pitcher of the Year, Tim Collins, set up shop just inside the entrance taking orders from people as they walked in. Isn’t he cute? Ladies?
When all was said and done, by the end of the afternoon, he had sold roughly 100 boxes of Girl Scout cookies……….and counting. Nice work Tim (and CP for the support). And for the record, those of you who are coming in on Saturday, bring some extra cash (wink wink, nudge nudge). You don’t want to make Tim angry.
