Congrats to August Member of the Month, Amy!
Coach Denise nominated Amy this month and here’s what she had to say about her…
“Amy is Strong!!!! She moves heavy weights in class and her core is solid as a rock. You wouldn’t know it to talk to her though. She is incredibly self-effacing, and laughs at herself when she happens to get something wrong during her training.
She doesn’t talk about it much, but she is also a Triathlete, competing in races all over the country and beyond. She always has a smile even at that ominous 6am hour. You lead by example. Way to go Amy!”
We asked Amy some questions about her experience at Dragonfly and this is what she had to say:
Does the Dragonfly community play a part in your gym experience?
Yes, I love seeing my gym peeps each morning, it's fun seeing the same people with a few new faces sprinkled in occasionally! It's motivating to see others meet their goals that they've been working so hard towards & we make each other laugh - even bright and early at 6am!!
Is there anything that strength training has taught you or given you that you weren't expecting?
Yes, I've done Strength Training classes in the past but not like Dragonfly. I came from another gym environment where it was MUCH different and they didn't meet you where you were at. The environment was more of - let's throw around some weights and go hard-core for 45 minutes....even if it's too much, push thru it.
Dragonfly has allowed me to slow down, focus on my movements, my breathing and how things feel. I'm able to adjust things if I'm feeling "off" and I'm supported by amazing coaches!
Strength Training has helped in my training for Triathlons and my overall performance at races. I just completed my 7th Half Ironman in June and I noticed a big difference!!! The dedication I've had to my 6am classes at Dragonfly and coaches pushing me in my workouts definitely has paid off in my overall endurance.
I love the Dragonfly community - strong, badass women all supported by wonderful coaches that encourage you to be your best self.
Thanks, Amy! We’re happy you’re here!
Amy was nominated by Coach Denise for Member of the Month! Each month Dragonfly coaches nominate members who are standing out, overcoming obstacles, and giving it their all. It’s always a hard choice to decide upon one!
