"As a trainer I have the pleasure of seeing a lot of athletes make huge strides in their workouts. Some come faster than others and some are larger than others. This makes no difference to me… a PR is a PR, no matter how small or large they are. We tend to be frustrated at not being able to do a movement as well as others or as well as we think we should. Some may think this is “failure”; I tend to think of this as determination. My AOTM does this to herself and I love it!! She has the desire to better herself everyday she comes in the door. Her training partner has left her for school and now she will have to rely on us, as family, to be her training partner. We as a gym are here to push her, and each other, to be there when others can’t. Shelly Romie is my Athlete Of The Month pick!!!
I was with Shelly at another box and she had the drive back then and still has it today if not more. She puts in the hard work and expects to be better than what she was when leaves for the day. If you haven’t had the chance to work out with her, expect to see DRIVE-DETERMINATION-HARDWORK-LOVE.
The next time you are in and see Shelly, congratulate her and see what she is is made of… No Mercy Strength!!"
