We are delighted to celebrate Kathy Willette as our first Athlete of the Month in the new year!
On a more immediate level, Kathy recognized the importance of regaining her core strength and stability, weakened by two pregnancies. Initially feeling daunted by this goal, she later discovered that she possesses more strength and confidence than she thought possible. Conquering a proper pushup, an exercise that once felt impossible, is now a testament to her hard work. Free of shoulder pain that once plagued her, she embraces the challenge with proper form and technique. Kathy has also built confidence using the sledgehammer in the gym, leading to learning how to chop wood with her family while wielding her very own ax.
As a busy mom, Kathy initially had concerns about fitting regular gym sessions into her jam-packed day of family commitments and responsibilities. However, she quickly realized that her time in the gym positively shaped the rest of her day. Starting her day at the gym provided the right dose of morning energy, community connection, and camaraderie that allowed her to perform at her best while having a ton of fun. Kathy not only enjoys her time in the gym but acknowledges that it shapes the rest of her day, giving her the best energy, focus, and mood.
Making a commitment to getting to the gym isn't easy, but a recurring theme we hear from people every day is that going to the gym always makes their day better. We work hard to provide a schedule that accommodates even the busiest of schedules. Coupled with our amazing community, we create an incredibly supportive and encouraging vibe, making it easy to make health and fitness a regular part of one's lifestyle.
Kathy encapsulates this sentiment: "I can honestly say that no matter what kind of day I'm having, no matter how tired I am when I get there, I always feel better—both mentally and physically—after a workout."
