  • Nickname:  Alex 

  • Hometown:  I am originally from Lee but I moved to Westfield about 3 years ago.

  • What brought you to Roots Aquatics & Fitness Center?   When I moved to Westfield, I was in search of a gym. I loved the roots facility! There’s so much to offer between the weight room, classes, the track, and the pool. 

  • What do you do outside of our facility to stay active and busy? I love outdoor activities! My husband and I are always trying to do something outside. Hiking, biking, tennis, throwing a frisbee around... we even tried out snowshoeing this winter. 

  • What is a fun fact about yourself?  I got married during the pandemic! My husband and I had to cancel our wedding (twice!) so we eloped and it was absolutely perfect! 

  • What is your number 1 guilty pleasure? A spoonful of Nutella :)

  • What is​ your greatest achievement at Roots so far? I’m proud of myself for going out of my comfort zone and trying new classes.... and then falling in love with them! 

  • What's your advice to new members looking to join our Fitness Center?  TRY THE CLASSES! It took me like 4 months to work up the courage to try a class. I always had a fear of “what if I mess up?” or “everyone in the class looks like they know what they’re doing”. Get this out of your head! After over two years of doing the classes, I still mess up! I’m always going right when everyone else is going left but it’s ok! Just show up, try your best, and get stronger! 

  • Do you have anything to add?  I personally believe that mental health is just as important as physical health. Roots has given me an outlet to work on both my physical and mental health and I am forever grateful for that.
