December Member of the Month – Diane Anderson

It is our pleasure to recognize Diane Anderson as our December Member of the Month! You may be saying, “Wait a minute here. Isn’t she a trainer? That’s not fair!” Well yes, she is a trainer, but she has also been a Member of Castro Valley Fitness for over 7 years.

A little over 12 months ago Diane was diagnosed with Cancer. She didn’t know what her future held. She started her chemo and still came to the gym whenever she could for own workouts and also to train our other members. All through that time she had one goal she wanted to meet: Compete in a powerlifting meet in November.

She fought through everything and competed last month. She did more than just lift, though. She matched her squat and bench press all time bests with 264 lbs and 137 lbs respectively and hit an all time best with her deadlift at 325 lbs! She did this despite having to start almost from the beginning with all of her lifts during her treatment.

Obviously, this is very impressive but what really matters is how she inspired every one of us at the gym by fighting through and always being the best she could be, both with her own training and also training our other members.

The three words Diane uses to describe her experience here are thankful, support and perseverance.

Thanks for everything, Diane!
