November 2020 Members
Pearce Celebrates Ryan and JoHanna Walker as our November Members of the Month!
The Walkers have been members of Pearce for just over 4 years, stating that they joined to start living a healthier lifestyle, get in better shape, and support a local business. “There was no better place to join than Pearce!”
Ryan and JoHanna said they love the variety of programs and activities offered for all ages. While they mostly utilize the weight room and Pearce Strong Room, JoHanna mentioned she has recently started attending Pearce Cycling classes, which she highly recommends. In addition to mom and dad taking advantage of the fitness center, Keagan and Bronson have been actively involved in our swim programs, soccer leagues, and Kids Club. Bronson (3) said he is looking forward to our new Art-tastic program for toddlers in November!
The Walkers expressed their appreciation of the community emphasis that is so important to Pearce, “We often joke that Pearce is like the show “Cheers.” Everyone knows everyone. We enjoy hearing about other members’ goals, achievements, or life in general. Pearce has given us the opportunity not only to get in better shape, but also helped us meet amazing people along the way. And we can’t say enough about the staff at Pearce. They all know us and welcome us as soon as we walk in, and the Kids Club attendants are phenomenal with our boys.”
Outside of Pearce, Ryan works as a Manager for Jones Brothers Jewelers and JoHanna works at Edward Jones in Chillicothe. They enjoy spending their free time with their dinosaur-fanatic boys, watching movies, playing endless rounds of Uno, and traveling pre-pandemic.
Their favorite inspirational quote comes from JoHanna’s dad, who reminds them, “Don’t be afraid to be great.”
The Walker’s advice for their fellow members is to never be afraid to ask for help! “There is ALWAYS a member, staff member, or personal trainer willing to lend a helping hand.”
Thank you, Walkers, for the dedication, support, and enthusiasm you bring to Pearce!
