#MemberCrushMonday: Nikki Calhoun
Here is her story:
"I work in healthcare sales and work from home. I have 3 boys that keep me busy and stay very active. They all play sports and also enjoy watching sports. We own quads, dirt bikes, a boat and an RV so we are ALWAYS on the go! The more mud puddles we can play in with our toys the better. We love to travel to the beach in the summer, Minnesota lake cabin and spend endless hours on Lake Pleasant throwing one another off the tube :)
What is something about you that would surprise us?
I love giving gifts...unannounced, surprises in the mail, at your doorstep, in the email...I love giving to strangers, friends ands family in different ways. My satisfaction comes from their surprise and making someone's day regularly.
Why do you choose to workout at Chuckwalla?
We love the Chuckwalla Family...even in times when we weren't actively working out here we kept in touch and they kept in touch with us. The members here become a second family with all of the sweat, hard work and sometimes tears that goes into getting fit.
How does Chuckwalla help you be strong for life?
I want to set a good example for my kids. Both my husband and I work out at some level so they see the importance of staying active. I recently hired Cy to train me to get stronger with 3 x week strength training for 3 months! I learned a lot about myself in those 3 months. I learned that once I put my mind to it, I did it, no questions asked. And this mindset set the foundation of getting leaner, stronger, more defined.
Cy is a great trainer...he pays attention to the little things and create a program that works for you.
What is your favorite lift/workout?
Back squat..I love seeing how heavy I can go with this squat."
