Maddie Boersma – Front Desk Attendant & Membership Coordinator
Maddie grew up in Three Oaks, Michigan. After playing College Softball and Coaching High School Softball she believes fitness should be a lifelong process and not just a temporary fix. She has always been an athlete and continues to stay active in sports, but after becoming a mother of 3 she needed to focus on her own fitness a lot more. She met with a personal trainer from a gym and found what really worked for her. Her future goal is to become a Personal Trainer/ Fitness Coach and share her motivation with others to achieve their goals.
The biggest thing that keeps her going when she feels like quitting is remembering why she started.
