Eileen McNally first stepped into the fitness world after she decided to quit dancing at 12 years old. Eileen started practicing Yoga at the local gym where she grew up in Brighton, Michigan. She began to understand the power of movement and started venturing out of her comfort zone by taking group exercise classes. Weightlifting and a variety of classes, such as cycling, kickboxing, step aerobics and Tabata-style workouts, helped Eileen realize her passion for fitness.
Eileen walked through the doors of AFS intending to bring the Barbelles of Oakland University (a women’s weightlifting group) to try the Weight Loss Solution class, but instead found herself handing her resume to Nate. Of course, the Barbelles still came to take WLS and it ended up being the biggest event for the organization! Eileen continued to work for AFS throughout her academic career and in December 2017, she graduated from Oakland University with a degree in Exercise Science and Nutrition.
Today, you’ll see Eileen working at the front desk and instructing Weight Loss Solution and Mobility Solution classes. You will also see Eileen taking WLS classes herself, or lifting weights in the Strength Solution room. (She really means it when she calls AFS her second home.)
Why I am here
What I’m doing when I’m not here
Yoga! I teach yoga at Oakland University and I practice daily. There are some days I ditch the weights and just breathe, stretch, and recenter my mind. I am deepening my knowledge of the practice and will be receiving my 200-hour Yoga Alliance certification in April.
