July 2024 - Members of the Month

Nancy Kielbasa

Member of the Month

Congratulations Nancy!

Nancy’s been a consistent member at Roots Aquatics & Fitness Center since early 2022. You can catch her at Forever Fit Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, or personal training with Jeremy! She always has a smile on her face and is ready to put in work, which is just one of the many reasons why she’s our July member of the month.

Nominate a member for our "Member of the Month" program & their fitness story will be featured in our Tinkle Times and on our website so that their story may inspire others, just like they inspired you! 

Monthly winners will be chosen by Roots Aquatics and Fitness Center Staff and announced at the beginning of the month. Winners will also receive an exclusive MOTM long sleeve shirt to represent their status of well-being! To be featured, member would have to agree to accept the award! The next winner might even be YOU!

  • Hometown: My hometown was Shrewsbury, MA, but I have lived in Westfield for 47 years now. 


  • What brought you to Roots? I came to Roots 2 plus years ago on the recommendation of my niece and nephew, and I wasn’t exercising much at all at the time. I needed a fitness routine.  I love Forever Fit and the variety of the workouts here. 

  • What do you do outside of Roots? Outside of Roots, I am retired, but have a small business running scrapbooking retreats.  

  • What's one goal you have at Roots/Roots Cycle or one goal you had that you've since accomplished? One goal that I continue to accomplish is that I work to lift heavier weights to help increase my muscle and bone health. 

  • What's your favorite thing about summer time? I love everything about summer, especially gardening.

  • What's your guilty pleasure?  My favorite guilty pleasures are watching Survivor, reading, chocolate, and my 3 cats!

  • What's your best tip for new members/new riders? My tip for new members is to give Roots a try:  it is such a welcoming and helpful gym, and there are definitely exercises for every person’s likes and abilities. 

  • Thank you so much, Rebecca, Jackie, Jake and Jeremy!  This is such a good surprise!
