AOM Closing Thoughts…
Being a Tradewinds Athlete has given me confidence inside and outside of the gym. I’ve met the most supportive and kindest people. Tradewinds has become a haven for me to go to reset when life gets crazy. I’ve seen so much personal growth in myself and I’m so much stronger. Tradewinds also offers much more than just physical fitness. I’ve been able to educate myself on all things fitness and health through the monthly book club. Deciding to join Tradewinds turned out to be the best thing for me and I’m so grateful I found this place!
