July Members fahrenkrug family children smiling in t-shirts

Pearce would like to recognize The Fahrenkrug Family as our July Members of the Month!

The Fahrenkrug family is made up of Matt (50), Chantelle (48), Brecken (18), Maurina (17), Cullan (15), Alannah (13). They’ve been members for so long that they can’t remember when they joined…definitely before kids! Matt is an Engineer, Chantelle is a stay-at-home mom, and the kids are all students in the IVC School District.

Matt and Chantelle joined to have a convenient place to go exercise after work that was close to home. Its many classes and activities options make it a perfect fit.

They love having somewhere close to home that has various options for exercise and fun activities. As the kids have gotten older, we know it’s a fun and safe option for them to go and play or exercise with friends.

Matt and Chantelle have participated in various classes over the years. When the kids were little, they all participated in the various sports leagues (basketball, soccer, volleyball) and took swim lessons. They also enjoyed the Spooktacular event, Breakfast with Santa, and the grade school dance/dodgeball nights. All four kids and Matt are very into running, and whenever it works out, they have enjoyed participating in the Run for the Health of It for the past few years.

Being members at Pearce has provided everyone a good outlet for hanging out with friends and opportunities to train beyond their school practices, such as swimming and biking. When Brecken was rehabbing from an injury during XC season, he would come and swim or bike multiple days per week, for instance. It has been a great asset to everyone.

In their free time, the kids all like hanging out with friends. The girls love volleyball and the boys love playing and watching basketball. As a family, we love traveling and have traveled extensively.

Advice from the Fahrenkrug’s: Try to view everything as an opportunity. Life is more fun if you can view it with a “get to” attitude rather than a “have to” attitude. A lesson the kids have had instilled in them by their junior high XC coach.

Thank you, Matt, Chantelle, Brecken, Maurina, Cullan and Allanah for choosing to be Pearce members!
