Mega congratulations to Kara for earning this month’s member of the month honor!! She is one of the most friendly and personable people you will ever meet. She brings such great energy to every class she attends and makes everyone around her better and happier. Thank you for being so amazing Kara! Check out the Q&A we did with her below 🙂

When did you start at Firewall, and how did you hear about us?
I think April 2017? A friend from Ashland ‘Liked’ the page on Facebook and I noticed the location was about 2 miles from my house. I had been wanting to get back to a gym but time and distance always seemed to be an issue. I figured I would join for a month and see how it went. Never looked back!

What are you most proud of for accomplishing since joining?
That I’m still still a member! I’ve taken a few longish breaks for injuries and family things but I keep coming back. I can’t imagine going anywhere else.

What physical and mental changes have you seen in yourself?
I have more energy, more endurance and strength and just generally feel so much better about myself.

What would you say to someone who might be interested in joining?
Just try it! Give it 2 weeks and there is no way you will not love it!

How have your workouts inside the gym affected your life outside the gym?
So much more energy and stamina. Feel like a different person from when I was not going regularly.

Why do YOU workout?
I have to! The difference in how I feel Both physically and mentally when I attending classes regularly is massive.

What’s your favorite part of Firewall?
Proximity to my house is huge (4 min door to door) but just the general community feel. It’s a total community without being ‘cult-like’. Everyone is so welcoming, friendly.

What was your favorite song in high school?
Alive – Pearl Jam

What’s your favorite movie to come out in the past 10 years and who’s your favorite character in it?
Bohemian rhapsody- Freddie of course!
