Athlete of the Month for October 2022

When our Athlete of the Month for October 2022 sat down for her No Sweat Intro, she set a goal of wanting to lift more weight. She knew diet was an important part of that goal. She also knew that maintaining some kind of one-on-one work with a coach was necessary. For the last year, she has absorbed everything IA has to offer. After completing her Fundamentals Program, she stayed in our hybrid program (Coach’s Corner, 1 private per week, 2 group classes per week). She has worked with Coach Leslie to improve her diet. The two of them focus on programming for her goals in their private session each week and she gains overall fitness through the group class. Needless to say, she has achieved her goal and exceeded it. Next on the list . . . pull-ups! Our Athlete of the Month for October 2022 is:
