Hi, I’m Hayley!

By | blog, Coach Journals | No Comments

Hi Everyone!
We’ve had quiet a few new followers over the last couple months, so this week, I want to go back to the basics and share some information and fun facts about IgniteGym!

Today, I’ll start by introducing myself and my vision behind the program!

I’m Hayley Campbell, Owner of IgniteGym. We are located in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario. My path with Ignite began in 2013. I had just had my first daughter, still on Maternity Leave and the previous owner asked if I’d be able to coach one group, one night a week. I had followed the program and knew I wanted to get involved. So I said, “Yes, if course!”. The day my maternity leave ended; I already had a full schedule and was excited to continue the journey. I quickly moved into the role of Head Coach and In 2016, was promoted to General Manager. In spring 2018, my boss brought me to a business ownership conference in Chicago. After the weekend of soaking up advise and guidance from successful business owners, he sent me a message telling me it was time to buy him out. Could I possibly be up for that challenge!?

July 2018, I purchased IgniteGym. I was so thrilled to be able to grow and build upon IgniteGym and expand the vision! We service children of ALL needs! Parents that come in for consultations will often question whether their child is okay to participate in a “gym” and I ALWAYS say YES! No matter what your child’s abilities are, we can always find some activities that will get their bodies moving! When we say we work with kids of all abilities, we TRULY mean it.

This year, IgniteGym has also created an affiliate program and other gyms and Private Schools around North America are implementing IgniteGym into their own gyms! With this, I am over the moon. With one gym in Sault Ste Marie, we can only help so many children, but with multiple gyms sharing the same vision, we can help LOTS!
Tomorrow, I will answer a frequently asked question:
What exactly is IgniteGym?
Have a great day,
Hayley

As many rounds as possible of:

10 Skaters
10 leg lifts over an objects
10 knees to elbows (scale to candlesticks)

Then Odd or Even Tic Tac Toe

This game is played with the same objective as Tic Tac Toe.
One player is Even. So they get 0,2,4,6,8
One player is Odd. So they get 1,3,5,7,9

Players alternate turns placing numbers in the squares to get a sum of 13. You may get a sum of 13 horizontally, vertically or diagonally and you may use the same number more than once.
