This year we are so honored to have FOUR women hit a huge milestone with us! They celebrate their 10 year anniversary at Dragonfly this year!
Lisa is up next!
Lisa is a partner and founder at Tremendousness, an information design and storytelling firm that visualizes complex information. She enjoys hanging out with her family including pets, watching her kids sports, reading, traveling, live music and sitting on pub stools talking to friends. Of course, going to the gym is her favorite thing to do.
Her favorite quote:
"I won't quit, but I'll cuss the whole time." (lol)
"You can't always get what you want, but if you try sometimes, you get what you need."
And of course we had to get the details on her health and fitness journey and how she stays so dedicated, especially as a business owner and a mom (her kids were little when she started!).
What has kept you at DF for ten years? At the most basic level, I've got to be doing some kind of physical activity for my health as I age, and I don't want to do it wrong, so going to a gym that gives you personal training without the crazy price for personal training, is a no brainer. I still need corrections on form 10 years later, and if I was going somewhere else I could be doing it all wrong! However, the people are all amazing and that is a huge benefit as well. I'd definitely miss the community.
How has being a member of Dragonfly changed aspects of your life? I didn't have a fitness routine when I started, so staying with it for 10 years is the biggest change. That said, I can't imagine what my health would be like had I not stuck with it for 10 years.
What is your favorite part about being a member at Dragonfly? The people - both coaches and members. And that dogs come once in a while.
What separates your experience at Dragonfly from other gyms/workouts/things you've tried in the past? Getting personal training for a group training price.
What's one thing you're proud of from the past 10 years? That somehow, most months, I come in 8 times even with my work schedule and my children's schedules.
What is something that used to be intimidating, but now you love it and/or how might you encourage others that might be nervous? Asking for modifications. I used to want to do it "right" all the time. Now I know it's about what is right for me.
For the past ten years, Lisa has been working hard and making us laugh at Dragonfly. She tells it like it is, asks for help when she needs it and always pushes herself accordingly! She's welcoming to others and always fun to have in class! Thanks a million for being here!
