WHAT'S A VIVID VISION?
The Vivid Vision document is a map of the future of Mekanix. Specifically, it describes how Mekanix will look in December 2022, roughly 3 years from the date the vison was developed and rolled out.
Some of what's in the 2022 Vivid Vision will seem straightforward, other parts may seem crazy.
We think these goals are both ambitious and achievable.
How will we do it?
The blueprints are still being built, but the approach is simple. As any good engineer woud, we've reverse engineered our goal and we're tackling things one quarter at time, with 5 - 10 "rocks" (goals) per quarter. Some elements of the vison may not take shape until we've completed our quarterly rocks over the next 1 - 2 years.
Mekanix is a premium brand and is well respected. We are viewed as the Whole Foods of fitness: a premium, trusted offering with a leading-edge suite of services and products.
Our athletes experience Mekanix primarily through our coaches and staff. Therefore, the highest leverage way for Mekanix to invest in our customers is to invest in our team. Culture is key and we will be known as a top place to work. We offer best in class compensation, benefits, professional development, and personal growth opportunities. Our existing team feels appreciated and valued. We will attract new team members because our work environment is so favorable.
We help and support our athletes to be the best version of themselves. Our athletes love that they have finally found their tribe. We have a digital file on each athlete to help them understand their journey. We do a review of athlete health and progress towards goals at least quarterly. Athletes can restrict information for privacy or personal preference, but we encourage them to share as much as possible. The value added through the quarterly review motivates them to share.
We provide high quality services to create and develop healthy, mobile, strong, and bulletproof athletes. This incldes: - Calisthenics - Recovery and Mobility - HIIT and Athletic Conditoning - Pool Training
Our service offerings have expanded to provide concierge access to services such as: - Nutrition / Food - Self-Improveent - Food allergy testing - Medical health - VO2 Max - Etc.
We have 4 locations. Each location is an incredible, unique space incorporating best practices and lessons learned from previous locations. They are approximately 3000 - 5000 sq. ft. Our locations are designed as a place where an athlete can spend at least half their day doing things congruent with fitness, health, and our values.
We do our part to reduce social and environmental harm.
We promote recycling and reuse and make it easy for our athletes to do the same by looking for opportunities to do this internally and promoting the same with our community.
We use LED lighting whenever possible.
We have an internal team that meets no less frequently than quarterly and reports to us how we are doing w/ to environmental impact and how we can improve. We take their input seriously.
Why did you write this Vivid Vision?
In order to arrive at a destination, you must know where you're going. And in order to do something great, it takes a team. This vision was developed and documented to provide a clear picture of the destination so anyone interested can be part of the process of getting there.
What's changing now? Is anything going away?
Most of our work right now is happening behind the scenes. If you want to know more about progress, just ask. Nothing is going away. We're looking to add more to what's already in place.
Do you really expect to achieve this?
This vison was NOT put together with the mindset of "Aim High, Try to Get Close."
This vison will be achieved. The blueprints are still being built, but the approach is simple. As any good engineer would, we've reverse engineered our goal and we're tackling things one quarter at a time, with 5 - 10 "rocks" (goals) per quarter. Some elements of the vison may not take shape until we've completed our quarterly rocks over the next 1 - 2 years.
