Castro Valley Fitness – Member of the Month
It is our pleasure to recognize Emily Jensen as our Member of the Month. Emily has been a member of CV Fitness for 3+ years.
She just competed in her first Power Lifting Meet last month. She decided to compete because she wanted to challenge herself to do something scary. Throughout the process she has experienced increased physical and mental strength along with learning to trust hard things even if it’s scary. Competing is very empowering and she recommends any woman to follow her example.
Since joining CV Fitness she is in the best shape of her life. It has helped her manage depression and helped with her positive self-talk. She finds CV Fitness a place that welcomes people from all walks of life. There is a lot of support and encouragement for everyone working on their own personal goals. She likes the connection between her workouts and what she does in her daily life.
Her advice is to be patient, be kind to yourself – don’t compare yourself to what others are doing in the gym, give 110% and celebrate your own personal victories, ask questions and try things that are scary.
The three words that describe Emily’s experience at CV Fitness are “welcoming, supportive and empowering.”
