I began coming to CSC as a guest of a member during the summer of 2014, but never joined because I had horrible gym anxiety! I have been active my whole life, but had self confidence issues and was clueless when it came to weight training so I was worried about making a fool of myself. Every time I visited, I loved the welcoming atmosphere and eventually applied for a front desk position. During those first few months, I was finally able to overcome my anxiety by trying classes and working with a personal trainer. I was (and continue to be) so inspired by our amazing community of members and staff. Now as a membership consultant, I always do my best to make sure people feel comfortable when they walk through our doors, whether they are just starting their fitness journey or are already experienced exercisers.

One thing most people don’t know about me is that I’m also a professional hula hoop dancer. I have been performing in Boston and across the states for 3 years now. The things I’ve learned about fitness at CSC have not only inspired me to get better at my craft, but to challenge my body and abilities more than I ever thought possible. I feel so blessed to have found a community that not only embraces me and my art, but also encourages me to be the best I can be at it. Chances are you’ll see me practicing in the studios on my days off. Don’t be afraid to stop and say hi…maybe I’ll teach you a move or two!
