May Member of the Month – Kathy Viera

Castro Valley Fitness May Member of the Month Kathy Viera

It is our pleasure to recognize Kathy Vieira as the CV Fitness Member of the month for May 2019.  Kathy was one of the “dance Moms” and saw CVF as she was waiting for her daughter’s dance class to end (FYI: she’s no longer a “dance mom”).  She decided to join about 2 ½ years ago with a goal to get stronger.  She wanted to fight the genetics and be stronger than her parents.

Kathy is not only a mother, spouse, and teacher; but also helps manage estate sales.  This requires her to lift furniture and boxes.  Achieving a 150lb deadlift assures she can handle that job just fine. She has found her added strength to be very empowering. On a recent plane trip she surprised a fellow passenger by being able to put her suitcase in the overhead compartment without help. You Go Girl!

Kathy has been dealing with some pretty tough family health issues.  This has caused significant stress in her life.  Throughout it all, she rarely misses a workout.  She is always positive with a smile on her face.  She finds CVF as a place where she can concentrate on herself and de-stress.  The very positive and family oriented environment is where she knows she’ll find support.

The three words she uses to describe her experience at CVF are “positive”, “inspirational” and “fun”.  Kathy, you are an inspiration to all of us at CVF!
