Q: What was your first impression? How has it changed?
A: I REMEMBER MY FIRST DAY VERY VIVIDLY. SO MANY PEOPLE CAME UP TO ME KNOWING I WAS NEW, AND MADE ME FEEL LIKE FAMILY FROM THE START! I ALSO COULDN’T EVEN FINISH THE FIRST WORKOUT. I NOW LOVE HOW FOUNDATIONAL OUR COACHES ARE AND HOW INVOLVED IN EACH OTHER’S LIVES AND SUCCESS WE ALL ARE.
