What Got you into Fitness?

I have worked out at AFS since I was in 8th grade, then I started working at the front, now I am interning!

Who Is Your Biggest Inspiration?

My biggest inspiration is my Grandma. She has seven kids, 18 grandchildren, she can walk 8 holes of golf at 86 years old and she has beaten cancer!

What’s Your Guilty Pleasure?

My guilty pleasure is the Bachelor, Keeping up with the Kardashians, and Grey’s Anatomy.

Favorite Quote:

“Bless the whole world, no exceptions”

Proudest Accomplishment?

My proudest accomplishment is getting accepted into college!

Who is your hero?

Donald, my buddy with down syndrome. He teaches me more than anyone, and I am so grateful I get to hangout with him every day.

What would You Sing In Karaoke?

Obsessed by Mariah Carey, but nobody would ever want to hear me sing.

If You Had To Eat One Meal The Rest Of Your Life?

Macaroni and cheese from Plum Market.

Sydney started as a client when she was in 8th grade and we have loved watching her grow since then. From the second she walked into the facility, she brought her hardworking attitude and laugh that is contagious. After she became a client, she saw the impact AFS had on the community and wanted to be a part of our team. After she started working here, she wanted to get involved in the fitness staff and started as an intern at the start of this year. We are so happy she has joined our team and we are excited for her bright future! Good luck in college 🙂
