I began my journey with Orangetheory Fitness in Evansville when they opened in January 2017. I was addicted to the workout, coaches, staff, and all of the other fitness fanatics from day one. I am by far in the best shape of my life! Fitness has been a big part of my life the past few years and has always been a stress reliever for me. Orangetheory workouts made me love working out even more than I already had. It has been my one-hour escape and my ‘me time.’ I did not realize how much OTF members and coaches were a part of my family until tragedy struck. On November 26, 2017, my husband of 8-years committed suicide. He left behind me and our three daughters, ages 7 and twin 4-year olds. That day was the worst day of our entire lives.
"That day I had several OTF members come by my house and in the weeks/months to come, they still came around to help me and my family."
They raised money for our family and showed even more love for us on Christmas. Ever since his passing I have been going to classes 6 days a week. It has been my outlet through all of this. OTF helps me get through my day, along with the support from my OTF Family. I am extremely grateful for the support that we have had through the past few months and the life-long friendships that I have made. I cannot thank the staff and members enough. I will be eternally grateful for all of them.
