In 2009, three girls from Waco, Texas, turned a hobby into a revolution, and opened up the first and only REFIT studio using a box of donations they had saved from the previous year. It wasn’t much, but we had enough for first month’s rent, deposit and minimal repairs. We then turned our attention to formalizing the REFIT business, and while many startups first focus on investors and venture capitalists -- we focused on creating two quality products: instructor trainings & DVDs. We took no salary for the first few years, and the amount of blood, sweat and tears we poured into this revolution is something we’ll forever look back on with pride and astonishment.
Many of you not only know this story, but you actually lived it with us! Your support and encouragement has given us the wings to fly and the means to build this life-changing revolution. Your support and encouragement also makes you more than just “fans” or “family” -- it makes you investors and stakeholders in our company.
As figurative stakeholders in this incredible business, it’s important that we update you on a big announcement: REFIT® recently acquired a building to house our local and on-line studio, fulfillment center and corporate offices. We are incredibly excited about this growth and the opportunities the new location will afford us, but we’re also equally FREAKED OUT.
Here’s what you need to know about WHY this building is an exciting opportunity for the future of REFIT:
And here’s what you need to know about why we’re FREAKED OUT:
We want to be good stewards of the support and encouragement you, our investors, have given us, and as we look toward this next step in the REFIT journey, we are hopeful but cautious.. With this at the center of our hearts, we come to you again -- nearing the 5 year anniversary of REFIT® -- to ask again for your support and encouragement.
We’ve launched a LOVE ME SOME REFIT fundraiser, and we hope you’ll consider showing us some love by donating at on or more of the donor levels.
Your gift of love, large or small, is a reminder of all that we have accomplished together -- and all that we will accomplish again! If REFIT has touched your life in any way, shape or form, we would love your consideration in supporting the LOVE ME SOME REFIT fundraising campaign.
And in case you didn’t already know: WE LOVE YOU!
