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 Fitness Solution class, but instead found herself handing her resume to Nate. Of course, the Barbelles still came to take class 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.
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 went through the 200-hour Yoga Alliance certification in April of 2018. If I’m not doing yoga, I am spending quality time with best friend and love of my life. We love to go on adventures, enjoy concerts, and travel as much as we can 🙂 I also love to spend time at my parent’s house in Brighton. The family is everything to me.
