I’m training for… I’m training for the next half of my life! I want it to be full of fun, health, and action.

What I do with RenFitness is… I’ve been trying most things since I started! Having a few personal training sessions with Ren got me set up with a plan of action and the confidence to follow it. I’m also taking the lifting courses, which have been really helpful for learning how to structure my solo gym time.

And I keep signing up for classes, clinics and small-group training in addition to the above because I’m meeting the most fun people to work out with! My last gym didn’t ever click as far as developing a group of informal gym buddies, but that’s a big part of the RF experience.

My favorite thing about training at RenFitness is… I love the community feeling – it’s easy to get to the gym when you are looking forward to the people you’ll see there. I also adore the big, open space and all the equipment – it never feels claustrophobic or competitive in the gym.

I’d like to share with everyone that… When I’m not in the gym I LOVE to swim in the open-water around Seattle – there’s an informal group of all levels that swims every Saturday at 9:30am from the Alki Bathhouse if you’d ever like to join – and NO, you don’t need a wetsuit (though it’s of course fine if you prefer one).
