I have two young adult children; Kelley 22 and Sean 20. Kelley has developmental delays so she lives at home and we are working to build her an active engaging life in our Seattle Community. Sean is a junior at Oregon State. He is a member of the MAC and appreciates the out of area membership. My husband Mike, also a MAC member owns his own computer company.
What are your hobbies and interests outside of the club?
I love to cook, entertain and travel. Eating usually goes hand in hand with those hobbies so that is why I work out. I also love sports, with football season being my favorite time of year. We have a 6-year-old Clumber Spaniel, Gibbs, who I love to take on walks and visits to the dog park.
How long have you been a member at the MAC, and what has been your experience at the club?
I have been a member of the MAC now for 5 years…it was a family Christmas present. Initially, I did what I was familiar with but my friend Lori and I decided we needed to try some new things. We attended one of the “try something new” sessions on a Saturday morning. Our first experience was in Spin with Cary. She helped us overcome the anxiety of not knowing what to do as a beginner in a spin class including how to set up the bike. The staff has been great.
When Lori and I learned the importance of weight bearing exercise, we decided to try Scott’s sandbag class. Sandbag training is great for those who travel as it’s like carrying a heavy suitcase. I signed up for two sessions a week and found out that my second class was part of a Level 2 Small Group Training. Talk about motivation…I did not want to slow these warriors down, so my competitive side kicked in and I worked hard to get stronger. Now I am a regular in MAC Fit Small Group Trainings and really look forward to it.
