What is your favorite thing about 926?
926 is a big part of my life now and the friendships I’ve made are so special. Brings a smile to my face at 6 am when I go workout – never thought I’d say that. As far as the workouts, it’s something different each time which I love because it’s never boring. Our coaches are awesome – they push us to be our best and support and encourage us along the way.

What advice would you give a newbie to 926?
Stick with it – keep coming back, and just do your best. Have fun! Yes it is fun. Don’t beat yourself up if you have a particularly tough workout.

Be sure to give Holly a high five and a job well done when you see her!
