What do you do outside of our facility to stay active and busy? I run outside and have trained for several races. Mostly, I stay active by playing with my kids! We go on hikes, bike rides, visit parks and playgrounds.
What is something we might not know about you? I was a cheerleader. In high school I was chosen to cheer at the Pro Bowl (and stood behind Tom Brady!).
What is your favorite New England Winter activity? I have a very low tolerance for the cold... I enjoy watching my kids build snowmen from the window with a hot cup of coffee. That being said, most of my race training has happened outdoors, in the winter.
What is your greatest achievement at Roots so far? My greatest achievement was running a half marathon. Before joining Roots I had never done much distance running. Tread and Shred, specifically, was a huge part of my training.
What's your advice to new members looking to join our Fitness Center? Try all the classes! The instructors are encouraging and supportive. I have never felt self conscious or pushed beyond my ability level. The Roots community is welcoming and far from “just a gym”.
Do you have anything to add? Thank you to Roots for providing a wide variety of programs. The instructors put an enormous amount of consideration and effort into their classes, from the choreography to the playlists.
