June Member of the Month – Pavneet Mavi

Castro Valley Fitness – Member of the Month

June 2018 – Pavneet Mavi

It is our pleasure to recognize Pavneet Mavi as our Client of the Month. Pavneet has been a member of Castro Valley Fitness for over a year.

The initial concentration on his core has improved his posture and he has had less back and neck pain. He has never lifted as much weight before – he’s found a new strength he didn’t know he had. He also finished a full marathon!

He enjoys the smaller environment of CVF with a friendly group of people – “it’s like a family”. The acknowledgment when you walk in the door and the way others cheer you on make it a fun place to work out.

He recommends that once you get in the door and go through your workout, your whole perspective can change – you are more positive and you move better. He also suggests that you challenge your comfort level whether it is with a new exercise or more weight.

His ultimate gym goal is to do three pull ups without the assistance of a band.

The three words that best describe his experience at CVF are “friendly, welcoming and challenging.”

Goretti regularly brings her smiling face to Bootcamp at 6 a.m.  She has been a client of CV Fitness for 4+ years.

Since joining CVF, Goretti has been able to move without pain.  She has had some chronic injuries and her regular workouts have allowed her to feel better without pain.  The notable improvements are her increased strength and her breathing.   She finds the exercises in Bootcamp challenging and enjoys the variety.

She says it is worth it to make an investment in yourself. She recommends that new members be patient and be consistent for three months.  You won’t imagine the benefits – beyond appearance and weight loss.  She finds it is her “healthy addiction”.

It is our pleasure to recognize Nick Chavez as our Member of the Month! Nick has been a member of CV Fitness for 2+ years.

Nick used to hate working out.  Since joining CV Fitness his attitude towards being active has changed. His general mood is better, he feels and sleeps better.

He finds CV Fitness very encouraging and enjoys the peers he works out with regularly.  He has developed relationships and was surprised to learn some life lessons too.

He recommends that members ask a lot questions, don’t get discouraged and ask for help to manage expectations.  He also suggests that members incorporate what you do in the gym with outside activities or life styles.

March 2018 – Andrea Vinson

Castro Valley Fitness Member Of The Month

March 2018 – Andrea Vinson

It is our pleasure to recognize Andrea Vinson as our Member of the Month! Andrea has been a member of CV Fitness for almost 5 years.

Andrea has never been so physically strong since joining CV Fitness. If it hadn’t been for Mitch, she would not have embraced it or be so excited about being strong. She sees it most often when she walks up a flight of stairs and isn’t winded. She also hasn’t hit a golf ball as far as she does now.

She feels she can’t find a better place to focus on strength, endurance and posture as CV Fitness. She appreciates the strong community where a new person will immediately feel the encouragement to do the best you can do.

She recommends that you keep pushing, keep showing up and find ways to do a little bit more at each workout. You will find that the end result is amazing.

The three ways Andrea describes her experience at CV Fitness are “supportive environment, strong community and many new meaningful friendships.”

December 2017

It is our pleasure to recognize Emily Jensen as our Member of the Month. Emily has been a member of CV Fitness for 3+ years.

She just competed in her first Power Lifting Meet last month. She decided to compete because she wanted to challenge herself to do something scary. Throughout the process she has experienced increased physical and mental strength along with learning to trust hard things even if it’s scary. Competing is very empowering and she recommends any woman to follow her example.

Since joining CV Fitness she is in the best shape of her life. It has helped her manage depression and helped with her positive self-talk. She finds CV Fitness a place that welcomes people from all walks of life. There is a lot of support and encouragement for everyone working on their own personal goals. She likes the connection between her workouts and what she does in her daily life.

Her advice is to be patient, be kind to yourself – don’t compare yourself to what others are doing in the gym, give 110% and celebrate your own personal victories, ask questions and try things that are scary.

The three words that describe Emily’s experience at CV Fitness are “welcoming, supportive and empowering.”
