“We can complain because rose bushes have thorns, or rejoice because thorn bushes have roses.” - Abraham Lincoln
One of the greatest things about Live for This Fitness is its incredible community. Within this community there are many shining stars. There are some boomers who take it up a notch. They inspire others. They connect with others. They show up consistently and they work hard every damn time. We think these boomers deserve the spotlight and some recognition.
Say hello to our February BOOMer of the Month...Allison Evans!
The LFT Coaches chose Allison because she is incredibly consistent, hard working and is the perfect example of community. I was able to have a chat with her about what it is that makes her shine.
