Entertaining and spending time with my crazy husband, insane family and amazing friends mean everything to me! The more the merrier! I am inspired in my fitness journey by my youngest son. At age 18, he moved to California, planted a church, went to college and lost over 100 pounds. Two years later, he ran the San Francisco Marathon and is currently training for the Seattle Marathon. I don’t see a marathon in my future, but I am learning to never say never!
Carol and Lorraine Rothman took a bus across the United States sharing self help with a box of speculums marked "TOYS." This was the start of the women's self help movement, and the beginning of a power shift in women's health. Women wanted to control their own reproductive destiny, to be able to decide when they had children, and be informed decision makers about their health care.

When I first arrived the customer service was great. The woman at the desk took me around the space—-showed me the lockers etc. I wasn’t sure about using a locker because I wasn’t sure how it worked to get a lock… worried that it may be a hassle… but it was super easy. You pick a locker key out of an envelope by the front desk and leave a photo ID (license) in the envelope. The # on the key is the number of your locker. The locker room, showers, etc. were super clean. I really like the space.

Women who seek out a women's only club are usually looking for something different. They want the privacy of an all-women environment. They also want the attention they get from women who understand the unique fitness needs of other women and are especially patient and understanding with those who haven't had much experience with fitness in their lives.
