  5. MOTM: August-19 – Barb

This month, we have the pleasure of awarding our August Member Of The Month to Barb.

Barb has been with us for almost 18 months now, and was somewhat apprehensive starting, having never lifted a barbell or participated in functional exercise classes prior to joining us at MOV.E.

Barb initially started with us averaging 3 classes a week, and is now a regular MOV.E’er often seen crushing 5 classes per week. It is this consistency that has seen Barb make some fantastic improvements – specifically in her strength, but most importantly in her confidence to complete movements/ workouts that she normally would shy from.

Barb we are so thrilled with how you have embraced training with us at MOV.E over these past 18 months, and look forward to working further with you in building a better you.

Thank you for being an awesome member of MOV.E
