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.

Brianne came in to Vitality with some hesitations and fears. But she quickly realized her own strength and has pushed beyond her own expectations. With each session, she improves her overall core strength and gains a little more confidence. We are so proud of you Brianne! Keep up the great work!

She can’t wait to feel like an athlete once again!

February 2019 Client of the Month
Meg deserves client of the month for several reasons. She has decided to put her overall health first and has taken the necessary steps to get her body moving by taking every class we offer here at the studio. She shows up for every class with a grin on her face and an energy most people don’t have right before a workout – not to mention she doesn’t have an exercise that she dislikes! She is a positive influence on all of us here at Vitality. We all enjoy her infectious laugh and we commend her efforts to putting her health first. Go Meg!
About Meg: Meg loves Colorado, hiking, snowshoeing, and exploring. She’s lived in Colorado since 1989 and before that lived in Hawaii. She has 3 children and 3 grandchildren, who have raised her well. Meg worked as an accountant in the Oil and Gas Industry in Denver for over 20 years. She loves to travel – has been to many countries, England, Egypt, Jordan, Israel, Canada, and Mexico, because her late husband was a technical trainer for Avaya. Meg is in transition now, having seen bits and pieces of her path, waiting for that season.
Meg’s health and wellness goals: I have always been aware of health being a gift. Right now, I am trying to prepare my body for endurance and strength. At 55, I know I can incorporate exercise to increase energy and live a fit life.
What Meg likes about Vitality and/or our trainers: I love the personal size and attention. At first, the trainers were always encouraging, but now they are like family, stretching me to go further. My strength
has increased, as well as my endurance. Going to the Studio is great and work all at the same time.
Meg’s favorite exercise: The heavy rope
Meg’s least favorite exercise: None – they are all helpful
