One of the best things about Somnium is the people here. Every Sunday we introduce someone from our #somniumfamily. This Sunday, our featured member is Maggie! Take a look below to meet @missmags123 ! And be sure to send us a message for your chance to be featured next week!
“I went to ODU with Ian, Tyler, and Austin- we all worked together at the Student Rec Center. I’m just back for a couple months- it’s so great to be here. Getting to see old friends, seeing how much the gym has grown- it’s very exciting for me. Starting at ODU, and then Radon, and now here- I’ve popped in through all phases and it’s just really exciting to me to be back and to see the growth.
I love the wall they have in the lounge with everyone’s goals- it’s really inspiring. I love how it doesn’t matter the fitness level, anyone can come in and get a kick-ass workout. Like I like to think I’m really fit, but then Tyler says, “What are you doing at 10?” and I come in and they kick my ass. But they can break it down too- watching the coaches break it down for people who are just starting their fitness journey is awesome.
The thing is, I know how hard they work- I’ve seen it. I used to clean the gym at Radon, and just cleaning the gym was so hard. We don’t think of all the work that goes into this- I’m just so proud of them and so thankful for them. If it wasn’t for them, I wouldn’t have found CrossFit, and this is something I can take with me everywhere- even when I travel. I thank them for opening my eyes to this world- it means so much. And I’m just one person- look at all the people in here. And it just started with their dreams and ideas- they made it a reality. It’s just beautiful.”
