I’m training for…

I’m training to be active: I love hiking, skiing, biking, and competing in the occasional triathlon. After dealing with some ongoing hip issues, I knew I needed to build a stronger foundation but hadn’t been able to do it consistently on my own. I joined the gym last summer right after I moved to Seattle, and not only am I no longer dealing with the hip issues, I have loved being able to feel myself getting stronger.

What I do with Strive & Uplift is…

I did a few personal training sessions when I first joined to get started, and since then have been doing morning kettlebell circuit classes, the Sunday morning class, and the occasional evening class. I like that the classes are accessible for people with a range of strength and skill levels, and that the coaches work to create an inclusive and supportive environment where we push each other while prioritizing good form and technique.

My favorite thing about training at Strive & Uplift is…

I had never done any kind of formal strength training program when I joined the gym, but the coaches and the community have been unintimidating and encouraging from the beginning. I like that I’ve found a gym that I genuinely look forward to going to!

I’d like to share with everyone that…

I am originally from Vermont, and I have identical twin sisters.
