Member Spotlight – Power Couple Edition
Our first member spotlight for August is dedicated to Bob and Maria Boulanger. Bob and Maria have been at CFVB for two years, but have always been super active…running, boot camps, kick boxing, etc. They are both hard workers and never shy away from our toughest workouts. For instance, this Saturday, Bob got off his shift at 7 AM, but didn’t want to go home to sleep because he’d miss out on the tough Saturday throw down! It’s been really awesome to watch them progress. Bob, an avid runner, hasn’t let mobility issues hold him back. He works on his posture and limitations and has made great strides. Maria has dialed in her nutrition and dropped quite a bit of weight. Her doctor remarked when her recent physical was better than ever! It’s not every day we get athletes with such drive…and we greatly appreciate it.
This couple is also adventurous and can be found traveling to amazing destinations worldwide. A few times a year, I receive emails with greetings from them reaping CFVB shirts in Ireland, Asia and Europe.
