Tell us about your first day walking through the doors at Ten Twenty?  You are freaking kidding me right...You actually want me to do that?!?  Haha.

What benefits/accomplishments have you seen/had since joining?  I have definitely toned up and now dropping weight!  Also, the confidence I have found in myself again is amazing.  The friendships at 1020 is something I cherish...The laughs, the smiles and the jokes are what make the place so special.  To me you can go anywhere and workout but to have the support system and friendships is what makes 1020 like no other.

Words of advice for someone interested in getting started?  Coming to join 1020 would be one of the best decisions you could make.  There is no other place like it and it will begin to be one of your favorite places to be.  You can do anything you put your mind to.  Also you can be a lifting and lip gloss kind of girl...cause I am :)
