February 2020 client of the month
Meet Terri Thomson
Why we chose Terri to be our Client of the Month: Terri joined the studio to lose weight and strengthen her core. She had been struggling with a lot of hip and back pain through the years, so she was pretty limited in some of the exercises she could do that didn't cause pain in the beginning. But she pushed through and has been willing to try anything that I have thrown at her. She has gained so much strength in her glutes and core in the 6 months I have been training her. Her determination is admirable! Terri has been a great addition to the Vitality family and I love having her as a client.
About Terri: Terri is a native of Colorado. She is a mother to 4 kids, 2 boys, and 2 girls. She was a Scout leader for her kids and helped coach some of their sports teams. As an adult, Terri used to be big into golf, tennis, hiking, racquetball, jogging and biking and camping. She is hoping to return to some of these activites soon.
Terri's Health and Wellness Goals: Due to a bad car accident in her 20's, Terri has had some physical health challenges. Now that she has finished her required physical therapy she has begun to work on improving core strength and overall health. One of her goals is to be able to get back to playing tennis and maybe even racquetball.
What Terri likes about Vitality: I like the commitment that I see from all the Vitality trainers for their clients. I feel that they truly take a personal interest in the well being and whole health of their customers. They are both reliable and flexible so it is easy to continue to get my workouts in as my personal schedule seems to change from week to week.
Favorite Exercise: The punching bag.
Least Favorite Exercise: Burpees
January 2020 Client of the Month
Why we chose Tamlyn to be our Client of the Month: Tamlyn attended a postpartum workshop that Stef taught and started working with her to gain strength and to feel more confident about herself after having her son. Since then, she has gotten so much stronger! It's been so inspiring to see Tamlyn's dedication to working out. She joined the Momma MoveCamp class at the studio when it started and attends most classes. Whereas some workouts used to make her super sore and tired, she rocks them now - hardly even phased. Tamlyn did the Kick Start Program to complement her training and to get back on track to eating healthier. We are so proud of the strength and confidence she has gained and look forward to seeing how much stronger she becomes in the new year!
About Tamlyn: Tamlyn is a Colorado native. She married her high school sweetheart in 2017 and they now have an extremely energetic 20-month-old son. Tamlyn and her husband enjoy spending time in the mountains, going camping and riding their ATV or RZR.
Tamlyn's Health and Wellness Goals: Build muscle so that she can keep up with her boys and move the furniture around easier.
What Tamlyn likes about Vitality: The variety in the workouts. Every workout is different so you never get bored. All of the trainers do a great job of telling you how to modify the exercises to be easier or harder.
Favorite Exercise: All the different plank exercises
Least Favorite Exercise: Anything cardio!

Why we chose Alex to be our Client of the Month: Alex is always ready for a good workout and (almost ;)) always has an awesome attitude!

If you need inspiration, look for Alex, she has it all over the place!

october 2019 client(s) of the month
Meet Kathryn and Kimberlee
Kit and Kim have been consistently attending Stef's Bootcamp classes for about 4.5 years, after their firstborns were almost 1, through their second pregnancies (at the same time!) and now in their postpartum stage. Starting in Stef's basement, going to parks during warm weather, and now at Vitality, watching these two ladies grow physically stronger and being able to push them has been an inspiration! They show up, sometimes with kids in tow, and even if they are exhausted and would prefer to drink coffee and just chat, they keep moving. Kit started not being able to do 1 pushup and Kim rolled right off the stability ball the first time she got on it - but now they both can bust out a set of pushups and can stay on the ball! They are really setting an example to their kids watching them workout week after week - and now their kids even join them sometimes.
About Kathryn and Kimberlee: Both Colorado natives, Kathyrn and Kimberlee love taking their physical activity outdoors.
Kathryn and Kimberlee's health and wellness goals: They want to set a good example for their children by being confident, healthy and strong.
What they like about Vitality and/or our trainers: They love their trainers! Kathryn appreciates that the trainers make her goals attainable and Kimberlee loves the authentic care that her trainers show for her health and wellbeing.
Favorite exercise: Kathryn likes the rowing machine and Kimberlee likes...Burpees.
Least favorite exercise: Kathryn does not like jumping rope and Kimberlee does not like push-ups.
