“Family. Duty. Honor.”
These are the words of House Tully from the popular book and television series, Game of Thrones. Tom Locmajian, a lifeguard and water safety instructor here at Club Fit, has adopted these words as his to show his own commitment to a strong, professional, and fun work ethic.
Family: Before he was the giant, bearded man Club Fit has come to know and love, he was a small boy who learned to swim with a life jacket throughout his youth on Kirk Lake in Mahopac, his family home. He learned to swim at a young age and often engaged in other activities such as boating, canoeing, snorkeling, and tubing. Tom has also made learning about water a fun and safe activity for friends, family, and newcomers alike.
Duty: Tom’s work ethic has been second to none since the first day he started at Club Fit in the fall of 2015. Recently, Tom has secured a job as a special education assistant in Chappaqua and is committed to his career in education, which he believes goes hand in hand with his job as a lifeguard which he balances on a weekly basis. Since Tom is a teacher by profession, with the urging of peers and coworkers, he acquired his WSI certification in April of 2016. Tom is truly a man of many hats committed to his strong work ethic.
Honor: Tom’s commitment to not only his family, but to his career and work ethic has truly made him into an honorable and valuable member of Club Fit. When Tom was 16, his guidance counselor in high school told him that due to his B and C grades, he would not be going to college. This would be a life alternating event for Tom, who thought that every child should have access to higher education. Tom would graduate college after six years with a master’s degree in education and a 3.87 GPA.
