So here is the low down on voting!  If you finished the Paleo Challenge (meaning you came in to take your after photos!) you will have the opportunity to vote starting today!  You will choose a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place finisher in BOTH categories.  The votes will then be tallied and winners will be announced next Friday.

In order to vote you’ll need to ask a trainer for a voting ballot, and then you’ll have the opportunity to view the photos and make your selection.

It’s not going to be an easy choice!  The trainers spent nearly 2 hours absorbed in narrowing the selection from 72 finishers down to 19 finalists.

Finding time for fitness isn’t always easy—however, in just one hour with Natalie you will work multi-joint strength development, speed, stamina and flexibility. What keeps clients coming back? Every session is unique, so boredom never stands a chance! Natalie holds her NSCA CPT, as well as a variety of Cross Fit certifications. Natalie will help to make fitness a functional and successful part of your life.
