Kendra is your member of the month!!
If y’all haven’t met Kendra yet it’s probably because she is a 5am-er! Only a certain kind of human can workout before the sun comes up and Kendra is definitely one of them. Since she joined us back in February she’s been one of, if not the most, consistent early morning person! And she does it without any caffeine!!! (She saves the coffee for when she’s at work)
Kendra’s dedication is impressive in and of itself but she’s also fantastic to have in class. She always does whatever is asked of her and is willing to try anything. Whether it’s heavier weights or a new movement, Kendra is down.
But even when she’s throwing around something heavy, or trying something she hasn’t done before, Kendra is very conscious of her movement! It’s the PT in her! She knows how important it is to move well in, and outside of the gym!
It’s been a pleasure to have such a hard-working and genuinely nice person in class. Kendra is one of the first to tell other people great job after a workout. And she always has something positive to say. If you’re ever up or just want to workout with a great person, come see Kendra at 5am!
