June Member of the Month: Sarah

Inspiration. Dedication. Bad Ass Determination!

Congratulations to our June Member of the Month, Sarah!

We are thrilled to honor Sarah as our dedicated and inspiring member of the month! Our coaches love that Sarah consistently gets in and works hard! She’s also putting in effort outside the studio on her own – perhaps to run a 5K! She’s a great partner in class at Dragonfly, cheers her fellow workout buddies on, and keeps a positive attitude even when things get tough!

Keep on thriving Sarah!

We asked Sarah a few questions about her training experience and here’s what she had to say:
What first convinced you to give strength training a try?
I wanted to be stronger!! (Not just burn calories…although I did hear a rumor that building muscle burns calories so that’s a plus.)
What’s your favorite workout or exercise?
TRX has ALWAYS been my favorite!! So challenging both strength and coordination-wise, but I LOVE it!!
What motivates you to stay consistent with your workouts?
Setting goals and seeing myself meet them. A couple years ago I was so sick after I had a stem cell transplant, I didn’t think I would ever get my body back. While it’s still a day to day struggle (stupid chemo burned lungs) I’ve come so much further than I ever thought I could. So I just keep raising the bar and trying to get better every day!!
What’s one lesson you’ve learned (inside or outside the gym!) since starting at Dragonfly?
I have to give myself some slack. I have alwayyyyyys been a perfectionist, and it’s so hard for me to not be able to just plow through things full force and “get it done.”  As I go through this journey I have learned that maybe some days I can’t do what everyone else can (or what I think I SHOULD be able to do), but I’m a million miles from 4 years ago and the more I work at it the better it gets. And some days are just better than others.
Bonus: What’s your secret talent that nobody knows about?
I’m a pretty good (self taught) cook; like….really good.
Thanks so much Sarah for being a member of our community – we are so glad you’re here!
