MEET MADDY B!
She started her fitness journey two & a half years ago working out from home. Her journey started in a place of self hate because she was at the lowest point she'd ever been in her life. Maddy lost herself for awhile because she was putting everyone else’s needs before her own, and there were multiple times where she had zero motivation to work out especially since she was only doing it from home. After a year she decided to find a gym where she could grow even more & that’s when she came across Ace. Maddy has now been in a gym setting for over a year and a half, and is so grateful for the friendships she's created, the tips & tricks she's received & being apart of such an amazing gym. Maddy says she has learned that there is so much more to fitness than the physical aspect of it. Strength is healing & powerful, but it’s so much more than a number on a scale. It is an emotional & mental journey. It is about self acceptance & self love. Fitness is apart of her lifestyle, it saved her and adds value to her life. Maddy's mental & physical health is thriving & her confidence is growing, and she is more motivated than ever to keep this spark going, hitting new goals & continuing to growing into the person she is becoming.

Reagan's fitness journey started around the height of COVID. She needed something to do and wanted it to be something she could focus on for herself. When she first started working out, she was clueless like many people, but immediately found a love for it. She loved the idea of pushing herself. After that, she knew it would be something she could never live without. Reagan's goals definitely fall into two categories, inside and outside the gym. Outside the gym, she is in college at the Mayo Clinic School of Medicine, and set to graduate December of 2024. She studies X-rays, and all the fun surrounding that field, which is a huge change of pace from being in the gym. Her goals at the gym are to continue to love the reason why she is there. She said she knows that sounds like a broad goal, but after having been an athlete for so long, finding a way to love moving her body was a big thing for her.
Reagan says the Ace Athletics community is truly one of a kind. She has been to many different gyms, and nothing compares to the atmosphere at Ace. "You walk into the gym at any time of the day, and are guaranteed to see a friendly face, or someone wishing you a good workout. That was such a pleasant surprise when joining this community. If you are looking for a positive gym experience Ace Athletics is absolutely where you would get that."
