Dammmm, where to start ... our journey started 10 years ago. Somebody gave me a hint, following my first workshop in Rdam. Felt great, amazing city, stunning vibes, a lot of memories, a few joints...
The workshop was a mind-opener for me, so different, great approach, your sense of humor, your always positive sense of changing things & thoughts. Nothing is wrong, but you can approach it differently. You’re the one that could give the trust, the feeling, the direction by saying only a few words. Your humor was the complete mind-changer for me, why make it too serious, no body can change being too strict. Bodies can only change if the humor is close. If things don’t work, you laugh, go home and work for it.
Writing this text is difficult, it feels like I’m ending an era. My years of years of weekly trip, alone in my car, my training, my therapy, funny talks, seeing things, live my life... it was/is more than a workout. You were always there...
I’m on a crossroad now, have to take decisions in life, follow my intuition. I’m super thankful Javier, getting to know you, our marvel-talks, Starwars- Star Trek discussions, will always remember your funny sounds, your specific songs for specific exercises. The Imperial March, Darth Vader entering the room, for mountain climbs. Forever in my mind, with each and every client. Same as making coffee for you, espresso 2 spoons of sugar, to get you going. Do you prefer Iron Man above Spider man ? Or be more spider-man today, and tomorrow we can be Iron Man. ;)
I know this is not “the end”, but after this intense periode it feels like it. You have a heart of gold, so willing to share, so gifted ... please, keep on doing “your thing” for years. We need you in this very special Pilates world. You are the one that can place things in perspective...
Javier, can’t leave you yet, not saying goodbye, I’m just super thankful getting to know you as a trainer and friend. Lets not get Star Wars in between us, and let me say the words without you saying, you dammm Star Wars people ;))
“May the force be with you...” I will miss you…
Your “for ever” Padawan, Jeroen
