Meet Lizette. She’s originally from Virginia and came to Seattle in 2017 for grad school. She now works as a public health evaluator for a number of child and family support programs in King County. Fun fact, she was an outdoor trip leader in college where she led backpacking and biking trips 🎒⛰️🚴♀️. Her favorite trip was bikepacking 150 miles through central Florida on the Huracan 300 route (look it up, it’s super cool!) where she encountered a baby gator, carried her bike through swamps, and took the best nap of her life in a tree 💤🌴
How long have you been a member at GLSC?
Since October 2022.
What brings you to GLSC?
Due to COVID and an injury, I fell out of my workout routine. I was trying to find a new workout home so I decided to check out GLSC after passing it so many times in the neighborhood, and it’s been amazing! The structure, fun workouts and supportive environment also brought me in and have kept me around.
How has being a part of this gym benefited you?
It’s had a tremendous impact on me, both physically and mentally. It keeps me balanced and I feel stronger and more confident in myself. I’ve learned so much about my body and what it can do thanks to the helpful and supportive training from instructors.
Favorite movement or exercise?
Deadlifts of any kind and slam balls. I’m also a huge fan of @laurelbakerkang ‘s mat class!
Favorite pump up song?
Anything pop-y or dance-y aka Dua Lipa, Charli XCX, Yaeji
