Step Aside Founder…

Step Aside Founder…

I fought some tears at the gym today.
.
How could I not?
.
A couple of months ago I had the full on realization that if I do not step aside at my gym and allow my coaching team to grow, I would be drastically impeding the expansion of GEvolution.
.
.
As one of my mentors told me, “Even though you built GEvolution, at this point, you are causing an obstruction.”
.
.
I knew he was right. In the surface I KNEW.
I just didn’t know how to let go and trust.
.
.
I KNEW 1 alone cannot accomplish anywhere near what 6 can.
.
.
As the daughter of Marie LoMonaco, a self proclaimed “work horse” her entire life, all I ever knew was to be the one, getting it done.
Put it all in my back, I will carry it, and if I miss something, I’ll punish myself mentally, teach my self a lesson and STILL think I had to fix it on my own.
.
.
While my step to the side, has been a necessary 2 years in the making, the process has been a wrestling match for my soul.
(This process officially began 2 years ago when I destroyed my knee.)
.
.
One of my mentors recently said to me, “you know that creating that space and fostering it is what you did and that in and of itself is a big deal! You don’t have to be the only one filling it anymore. That’s what you have created your coaching family for—to do it with you, for you, while you continue to create & expand the space for them, for you, for the community.”
.
.
My mentors perspective coupled with my lead coach boldly calling me out, “This is me Gina, saying to you, GIVE ME THE REINS,” created THE moment when I realized I HAD to let go.
.
.
I walk in to my gym since the start of this pivotal year and look around with deep joy.
.
.
I see my coaches running the show, carrying out the message of GEvo, caring for our team, instructing with passion, expanding their knowledge, immersing themselves in the professionalism roles and teaching ME!
.
.
I see team members of all levels, executing with excellent form, taking coaching cues with wide eyes, smiles, high fives, sweat, laughter, community, healthy shoulders and ACTIVATED GLUTES 😂😂
.
.
Stepping aside and allowing my family of coaches to RISE, just like I did in this industry, MUST be one of the life lessons I am having this human experience for.
.
.
I have a deep and trusting & knowing that my decision will support my soul exploration while still adding love, authenticity, and meaningful interactions to others lives.
.
.
