Member profile August 2013

It's August. Mammoth is absolutely BURSTING with festivals and activities of all kinds. What a summer! Most of our members are all about getting fit for all the outdoor activities there is to do around here. Spending some time at the gym can prevent injuries when you're out exploring more natural terrain. Our member of the month this time is a lady who enjoys Mammoth summers with her husband and three kids.

BodyShop: Please state your name for us.

Member: Alicia

BodyShop: Do you live in Mammoth full time, seasonal or visiting? And how long have you been here?

Member: Seasonal, we have a house up here and mostly come up in the summertime.

BodyShop: What is your occupation?

Member: I'm a homemaker at the moment.

BodyShop: How long have you been coming to The Body Shop?

Member: This is my second summer. 

BodyShop: How often do you work out and what’s your favorite time of day for working out?

Member: I work out 6 days per week now, not in the gym every day, but always doing something active.

BodyShop: What’s your favorite work out music?

Member: I like pop music. Pink is one of my favorites, and you're gonna laugh, but New Kids on the Block are fab. Their new album is so good.

BodyShop: What other sports/recreational activities do you engage in?

Member: I hike and bike up here. Back home in Encinitas I play softball and tennis as well.

BodyShop: Which are your favorite spots to do those things around Mammoth?

Member: We have three kids and live in Old Mammoth, so we do the Town Loop a lot, but we also go to Crowley, Mammoth Ridge and hike to Rainbow Falls a few times each summer.
BodyShop: What do you like best about The Body Shop Gym? 

Member: I love how personal it is, it's so comfortable and friendly. I tried the other gym in town and it was not for me. I go to a similar gym to this one back home in San Diego.
BodyShop: Finally, what is the one piece of workout attire you own that should probably have been retired a long time ago? (oh, come on, you know you have at least one item like that)

Member: Well, I just recently had to update my entire workout wardrobe as I've lost 25 pounds this year, my sweat pants were literally falling off me during my exercises. I should probably replace my shoes more often though, but the ones I'm wearing today are fairly new, the old ones had holes in them!

Alicia rode in on her bike, did her workout and then got back on the bike. That's Mammoth living!
