Congrats to June Member of the Month, Bridget!
Coach Jenny nominated Bridget this month and here’s what she had to say about her…
“Bridget is committed to her workouts. She is always consistent and works hard to challenge herself to do better, whether it’s increasing her weight that she’s lifting or really honing in on her form. I love that Bridget is eager to get feedback from coaches on how she’s doing and what to do next to progress. She is also super supportive of her classmates and seems to always have a smile on her face.”
We asked Bridget some questions about her experience at Dragonfly and this is what she had to say:
What brought you to Dragonfly?
I moved from Cincinnati to St. Louis in May 2021. After starting my new job and getting into a boring, non-body moving routine, I realized I wanted/needed to find gym classes that would hold me accountable. And I was so lucky that the perfect gym happened to be in my neighborhood!
Does the Dragonfly community play a part in your gym experience?
I feel like the community aspect at Dragonfly is one of the most important parts. I love that I get to come to most of the same classes each week and that I have gotten to know more about my fellow gym-goers. It’s also great when I decide to take a different class and get to meet new faces. In both scenarios, you find everyone supporting each other to be stronger.
Is there anything that strength training has taught you or given you that you weren't expecting?
Strength training has started to make me more comfortable at work and in public. I have always been a little quiet/anxious around other people and I just have found myself being more talkative/confident. It’s also so exciting being able to feel my core and arm muscles for the first time, I never thought I would be this strong.
Thanks, Bridget! We’re happy you’re here!
Bridget was nominated by Coach Jenny 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!
