Koa Fit Client of the Month – April 2017

Mary Beth Readey

Mary Beth just keeps impressing us.  She has lost over 30lbs, has dedicated herself to additional training sessions, and continues to get stronger each week.  She has shifted from someone who dreaded her workouts, to making them a part of her routine twice a week and even looking forward to them.  She brings a mixture of straight talking reality and hilarity to each session.  She is working consistently through the Healthy Habits program and has adopted positive change as a result.  We are really proud of her steady dedication.

What her trainers are saying:

“Mary Beth brings a realistic approach to her health and fitness.  She moves steadily forward, owning her choices and making no excuses.  Her consistency is paying off in both strength and physique.  And her laughter fills the room, which makes it fun for the whole gym!” – Missy Hughes

“I’ve seen so much improvement in her body and mind.  She is an inspiration to those who can achieve weightloss and a functional active body as a senior.  She is a machine when she’s focused.”  – Siri Schubert-Nicolella
