Congratulations to the October members of the Month: Jen Mason and Doug Wetherill!
If you haven’t ran into Jen and Doug yet, you probably just joined the gym. Jen’s super positivity and Doug’s friendly and loveable personality are always a highlight of any class, they are everyones favourite gym couple.
For the past 2 months they have both topped the committed club and in October alone they did a combined 45 classes! If you include their son Noah who is a committed kids class member, their family attends over 50 classes a month! Their commitment to the gym shows with the progress they have made since being convinced by their former neighbour (and former coach of ours, Clinton) to join us. Doug could be seen destroying open workouts in his all red outfit, and Jen couldn’t be missed decorating and being the green teams spirit animal! We are lucky to have Jen and Doug as members at 1827!
Huge thank you to Popeyes Supplements Guelph for the prize pack for Jen and Doug, and Greg at Beech Hill Freight for the clothing sponsorship! If you have any supplement questions or want the best prices and selection in town, make sure to check out Popeyes on Stone Road across from the mall.
