Monique's Farewell Letter to Godspeed

Apr 1st, 2019

"It isn't goodbye, it's see you later."

To my Godspeed family,

This is my last week at Godspeed and my final day at Godspeed will be Friday, March 29th, 2019. I'm venturing into the corporate world in order to further refine my skill sets and gain as many experiences as possible.

In my 3 years at Godspeed it has been a pleasure to be a part of Godspeed's growth and to see the incredible transformation the gym has made. Godspeed is truly the best of the best and I've been beyond honored to be a part of it and am eager to see what the future holds for this company! I'll miss you all and wish everyone nothing but the best!


My first thanks is to the Godspeed staff for allowing me the opportunity to intern 3 years ago. When I started Godspeed as an intern I used to say that I was a fish out of water. As my background was in aquatics with swimming and water polo I was completely out of my element and had never touched a barbell in my life...and never intended to. However, I'm so grateful Godspeed took in this fish out of water and introduced me to a whole new world of CrossFit and athlete performance training. Thanks for bringing me into the Godspeed family. (And although I was reluctant, thanks for making me comfortable with a barbell.) Furthermore, thank you for the opportunity to grow alongside Godspeed as Director of Operations and entrusting me with the responsibility and the title. In my time here, I've learned more than I could've ever imagined.

To all my athletes, especially my early athlete performance athletes and my MOVErs, thanks for allowing me to coach you! (And shout out to everyone who was patient with me when I took over some of the CrossFit classes!) I truly enjoyed whenever I was able to coach and will miss working with athletes and coaching everyday. To all the MOVE crew I worked out with daily, I will deeply miss "moving" with y'all everyday! As James Spann would say, "MOVE is no joke & MOVErs are people, too!"

Lastly, thank you to every single member of Godspeed! Thank you for welcoming me into the family 3 years ago and to everyone that has joined since it's been such a pleasure being part of the Godspeed family with you. We're so fortunate to have such amazing members that are like family and it's been one of the hardest things to say goodbye to. I'll miss everyone!

I'm hopeful I'll reconnect with Godspeed in some form again in the future! Keep in touch!

Thank you for everything & Godspeed!
