Congratulations to FFC Oak Park October members of the month Sonia and Esmee! We spoke to them about their experience at the club and here’s what they had to say:
What does membership at FFC mean to you?
Esmee: Membership at FFC means having an accessible place where I feel comfortable working out. Whether it be swimming, climbing, or anything else… there is always a friendly and helpful staff member nearby.
Sonia: I first came to FFC to climb when I was around five years old. Nearly nine years later, I have started climbing close to six days a week. Having my membership at FFC has helped me develop myself as a climber more than I could have imagined. The great, supportive staff always encourages me. It is a great place I can always rely on for a workout. it has definitely helped me grow both mentally and physically.
When at FFC you will find me….
Esmee: At FFC, you will almost always find me at the rock climbing wall with my friends.
Sonia: When I am at FFC, you can without a doubt find me at the rock wall. It is my favorite workout and my all-time favorite activity.
I work out to….
Esmee: I work out to improve my overall health and because I enjoy it. Of all things, climbing is my favorite thing to do in my spare time.
Sonia: I work out to improve myself as much as I can as an athlete and person. Climbing helps me reach new heights and makes my life as enjoyable as it can be. I love the feeling of getting stronger and I hope to get stronger and stronger over time.
