November 2016 Member of the Month - Katie Nalepka

Please join me in congratulating Katie on Member of the Month! Katie has been a member of Studio ME for almost a year and has never looked back.

Katie's Story:

"It was about a year ago, I had been looking to join a gym. I had my eye on a handful, but one of the deciding factors of checking out Studio ME was seeing an old friend highlighted on Facebook as Member of the Month (Hi Tonya!).  I immediately sent her a note to see what Studio ME was all about, and before the end of the  night, I was signed up for my first three classes and planned on joining Tonya for a Saturday IndoRow class. The rest is history!


Over the past year, I've slimmed down and toned up and  have so much more energy than I did before - I have turned into a person that looks forward to my work out! I attribute my continued attendance to not only the variety of classes offered, but how the same class varies from one class to the next - you never know what you're going to get, which I think is great! My current favorites are Kettlebell Circuit and Total Body Row.


When I am not at the gym, I can be found brunching with girlfriends, experimenting in the kitchen, or doing all. the. car. things with my (new!) hubby! We are co-organizers of a winter car rally called The Polar Run which raises money for local charity. I explain it as a day long scavenger hunt and it is a blast. Last year, as a group, we raised over $30K for our local Ronald McDonald House. This year we have over 40 teams raising money for the Minnesota Masonic Charities, which will be doubling our donations- we're excited to see what we raise this year!"
