Congratulations to FFC Oak Park’s August member of the month, Mary Anderson! Mary shared a few thoughts about what membership at FFC means to her – here’s what she had to say:

1) What does membership at FFC mean to you?

It means the world to me. I was a longtime member prior to returning to FFC this spring . I love the energy I feel from other members.

2) When at FFC you will find me….

Working with my awesome trainer Andrea or in the pool doing water aerobics with Sandy.

3) I work out to…

Working out has changed me to an energized and active grandma, who no longer sits on the sidelines, now my goals are within my reach!
