Trish is a consistent member of our morning classes and recently competed on a team during our Winter Smackdown Competition, where her team won “Most Spirited.” Trish also competed in our first ever Lift Off Competition back in November, and she was the recipient of our “Rising Star” of the year award.  Trish, you’ve accomplished so many awesome things and there is so much more wonder on your horizon!

Trish: CFT is a wonderful place to be. The coaches are so brilliant. They truly care about you and your health and wellness. They will offer you support and encouragement every step of the way, going above and beyond what I expected. All you have to do is show up and try your hardest. In addition my fellow athletes are truly amazing! Their support and encouragement
