Member of the Month – Julie M

Each month we have the opportunity to share the story of one of our amazing clients! We are thankful for each and every one of our members and love that they love being a part of our fit family!

What is your main hobby outside the gym?

Hanging out with my husband and son, knitting (yes, really), and reading.

Describe your average day.

Work, gym, hanging out with Eric and Sam. Every once in a while I’ll hang out with some of my friends.

Describe your personal mission in life.

First, I just want to be kind to everyone around me. I want to live in such a way that it gives people permission to work hard to become even better versions of themselves. This is especially true for my husband and son. But it also extends to family, friends, the gym, and work as well.

Basically, work hard, have fun, be kind, and help others grow.

What fitness related achievement are you most proud of?

I’ve lost 30lbs while burning fat and gaining muscle. All of my lifts have hugely improved. I honestly think I’m in better shape now than I have been in 20+ years.

What is your dream job?

I’d rather just be independently wealthy.

But, if I had to choose… an astronomer or astrophysicist.

What keeps you motivated to workout/train?

I really do love the community. I also recognize that my mental and physical health are drastically better when I’m going to the gym that I don’t want to go without.

How has Iron Hero positively influenced your life?

I’m healthier in every way than I ever have been. I have more confidence and am willing to try more things. I never thought I’d be a “CrossFitter” but here I am, and I love it!

Why would you share a place like Iron Hero with a friend or family member?

My life has drastically changed for the better. Everyone deserves the chance to succeed in such a fun environment. The mental and physical health benefits are too good to pass up.

Add one random fact about yourself!

I’ve been playing the piano since I was 7.

Julie, we thank you for being our November Member of the Month and especially thank you for taking a minute to share a bit about yourself, your journey, and your personal mission!
