R3VIVE’s Member of the Month, August, 2021
Introducing our Gym M.O.M. (Member of the Month) for August, 2021 … Fatima Lacanlale!
Working with Fatima over the last year has been extremely rewarding for us. Fatima, like a lot of our new members, joined us with very minimal strength training knowledge and experience.
She’s steadily maintained the course, adhering to our structured plan for her, by training under our build track during group classes. Her patience has highly paid off, as she is now capable of performing movements from our perform track, safely and effectively. Yet Fatima, being the patient athlete she is, is still humble enough to know when she must revert to build for other movements.
This is a quality we highly in our athletes value and can sometimes be complicated to teach. Working with Fatima provides us assurance that our plans can work for many athletes, of all fitness levels.
We’re highly honored to highlight Fatima due to her hard work, commitment and coachability!
