Meet our Member of the Month for August, Sam! Sam makes no excuses when it comes to her training. When her work schedule changed over the summer, Sam is a social worker at a local school, she adapted her personal schedule to ensure she could continue training (that meant the 5 am class was her only option!). She deadlifts a heavy bar easier than Harry Potter lifts a feather (Levioso!). Her smiling face and hard work is contagious. We love having you Sam!
1. When did you join Huntley Barbell?
– I joined Huntley Barbell around December of 2015
– I’m a social worker for Harvard Junior High and I coach freshmen volleyball for Harvard High School and Club Fusion. In my spare time I play co-Ed sand volleyball and slow pitch softball. My fiance and I moved to Huntley in December of 2015, which is what brought me into Huntley Barbell
-I don’t even know where to start…the workouts, the coach(es), the people. I haven’t had a negative experience at Huntley Barbell since I joined. I love the group classes most. In addition the gym being accessible 24/7 is a perk. No matter what your personal fitness goals might be, the classes are so motivating. Jeremiah spends time with every individual helping and driving us. I honestly feel like I learn something new about myself and fitness every time I walk into the building.
-This is really hard. I can find something I love about each exercise and workout. If I had to choose, I love back squats, or squats in general. While I’m still new to back squats, I’m excited every Friday. In addition to back squats, I generally love reading what our WOD will be for that day. Our WODs are a great workout and I can tell my endurance has improved because of them. Keep in mind, they are always hard and you have to push yourself, I love it.
