What brought you to Roots: I grew up about 2 miles down the road and joined when the gym opened!
What do you do outside of Roots: Spend time with my horses and dogs.
What's one goal you have at Roots or one goal you had that you've since accomplished? Within the last year my goal was to get stronger. I was having chronic SI joint/sciatic pain and I wanted to build muscles to help relieve this pain. I can say that when I first started I had to take it slow and modify a lot but now I have less pain the more I come to the gym! The gym became less about losing weight and more about becoming strong and I can say I enjoy it so much more.
What's your favorite spring activity? In the spring I enjoy getting outside and gardening.
What's your guilty pleasure? Chocolate!
What's your best tip for new members/new riders? Just show up! It doesn't matter what level of fitness you are at, everyone makes you feel welcome and it's YOUR workout!
