Congratulations to Tracy Laluma, FFC Oak Park’s March Member of the Month! We asked Tracy about her experience at FFC, and here’s what she had to share:

What does membership at FFC mean to you?

My membership is an investment in my health. It is an opportunity to take at least an hour of my day to really focus on taking care of myself, and tune out everything else happening in my life. I love the fact that all the staff are so supportive of their members’ goals, and are always encouraging. There is always a positive atmosphere starting from the check in at the front desk, and throughout my time at the gym that day. My FFC membership allows me to be part of a community that truly supports my wellness.

When at FFC you will find me…

In personal training sessions with Justin, getting dietary training with Amy, doing various group classes with Nazha, and grabbing a smoothie at the cafe! Once in a while, I will treat myself to a massage at the spa.

I work out to…

Commit to a lifestyle change. Initially, I started to lose weight for my upcoming wedding, but seeing my progress and feeling the changes in my body inspires me to continue building my self-confidence.
