I have been with the YMCA for a little over 5 years. I am a fitness attendant, group exercise instructor, personal trainer an I assist with the teen reach program. I also do outreach programs for different community centers including the public school system and tae kwon do instructor for kids.
In the summer of 2010 my tae kwon do kids and I put on a demonstration for HKD and at that time the producers for The Karate Kid came to Rauner and seen the demonstration we did. They loved how much fun the kids were having and they invited my students and some of the kids to the Premier of the movie at the AMC River East Theater Downtown. The kids were very excited and enjoyed the day so much.
I enjoy the Y the most out of all the gyms I teach at because the staff and members are the most personal and welcoming. They make you feel like family!
