At Raw we are fortunate to have a truly committed group of members. Each of you finds ways to impress us with your performance, dedication and encouragement of other members. For that reason, choosing two members of the month can be a difficult decision. But this month the coaches agreed that these two women in particular inspired us, encouraged us and showed an incredible amount of dedication. We are happy to announce Tara Koehler and Allyson Shannon are February’s Raw members of the month.
Tara Koehler has been a member of Raw for less than a year and in that time she has shown an incredible amount of dedication, commitment and improvement. You can often find Tara at the 630am class, powering through her workout and refusing to let anyone stop her. She is committed to learning each movement, to challenging herself and to becoming faster and stronger each day. Tara is often heard encouraging other members, newer people who may be considering giving up on themselves and those of us who are just having a difficult day. We are so proud of you Tara for your positivity, dedication and ability to inspire others to keep moving and for those reasons you were chosen as Raw’s High Intensity Cross Training Member of the Month! Keep up all of the great work and we know you will reach your goals!
Allyson Shannon is one of the founding members of Raw, she is someone new members look to for advice and for encouragement. Since returning to Raw from a back injury late last fall, Ally has focused on Strength Training in addition to HICT. Ally’s commitment to proper form, her ability to power through a difficult work set and her encouragement of other members is second to none. When Ally is not lifting you can hear her cheering on other members and see her helping everyone around her load their bars. After focusing on the 5 major lifts for the last few months, Ally has shown all around improvement and continues to inspire Raw members and coaches at each class. Ally we are so thankful for your commitment, for your dedication and for your ability to inspire those around you to challenge themselves and for those reasons you were chosen as Raw’s Strength Training Member of the Month! Keep up the great work, we are so excited to see all of your progress!
