How long have you been a member at 1020?  About 11 months

Tell us about your first day walking through the doors at Ten Twenty: Super nervous.  It had been a long time since I had consistently gone to a gym, and I wasn't sure what to expect.

What benefits/accomplishments have you seen/had since joining?  I definitely have more energy!  I've also been a lot happier since joining.

What are your individual goals? I mainly want to keep getting healthier.  I also would love to get to a point where I can consistently RX workouts.

Favorite moment at 1020 so far?  It has to be the first time I walked in.  Everyone was super welcoming and I felt great (and super sore) after my first workout!

What do you enjoy  most about the coaching staff at 1020? Always willing to help out.  They are constantly available to answer questions and give you extra time.

Words of advice for someone interested in getting started? It gets better!  I couldn't walk for the first month.  I literally thought I was going to fall down the steps, walking out of the building, a couple times.

Tell us something we don't know about you?  I'm originally from upstate New York :)
