#MemberCrushMonday: Belen Lopez
Here is her story:
"I was born and raised in Guadalajara, Mexico, till age 9. I was raised by my grandparents who had 12 children, I am #13. I went to a Catholic school in east LA and we moved to Arizona in 1993. I’ve been a hair stylist since high school. I love my career! It gives me the ability to grow and learn as much as I can. I’ve traveled the world for hair shows and education with friends and alone.
I was always in sports at school growing up. I love to hike, yoga , aerial yoga, meditation and lift weights.
I was recommended by a customer to Chuckwalla Fitness. I was so thankful for their daycare services, as my old gym had closed theirs. That’s the main reason I signed up, little did I know how much it was going to change my whole perspective on fitness! I can see and feel my body changing so much, toning and shaping up; I’m getting stronger! I love the challenge! We have so much fun! Sometimes the hardest part is getting there. Everyone is very helpful and motivating. I don’t really have a favorite lift or workout, I just really like the high and low intensity workouts. I’ve been a member almost a year, and I think this is a life changing workout that I will maintain for good. It is by far the most rewarding and self motivating workout with great results. Not just physically but mentally. Our trainers are very knowledgeable, patient and kind. I love to support local businesses, I’m glad they made it through these hard times. My baby loves coming to the gym to play with her friends, it’s so important for her well being to interact with others. We both go home happy! No better way to start our day."
