Member Spotlight: Lana

Lana has an encouraging, positive attitude and infectious smile. She is always in Kick Fit, cheering on her teammates while also challenging herself.  In the past year, Lana has become an integral part of Rothwell MMA. She sports her Rothwell gear around town and can be found at all the gym events-  Rothwell MMA volleyball team, picnics, parties, healthy cooking prep with other members, UFC viewing parties, WXCF 6, UFC 203 in Cleveland, and more!    

Here is Lana’s story: Well I am Lana! I’ve been going to Rothwell MMA Kick Fit classes since January 2016. Chrissy (another Kick Fit member) asked my good friend Lindsay multiple times to come try out the gym.  Lindsay finally said yes and ended up bringing me with! I became a member the day I tried my first Kick Fit class. One of my New Year Resolutions was to lose some weight and get in better shape so I was really excited about joining! My experience has Rothwell has been nothing short of life changing. After going through a divorce shortly before I joined, I wanted time to focus on me and I honestly have loved every minute. I have gained so many incredible friends that are there to support me, encourage me, and push me to become the best person I can be. So far I have lost about 40 lbs and have accomplished more than I ever knew possible!

I will never be able to thank Rothwell MMA (Ben and Jen specifically) enough for the amazing atmosphere that gym has. The instructors are literally the greatest people I have ever met. Rothwell MMA to me is one huge family and that is what I love most about it. Even on my bad days I walk into the gym looking forward to being in my “happy place” and I walk out energized, excited, inspired, and refreshed! I have a new found respect for all the fighters. I have loved Rothwell MMA since day one and it has only improved since I’ve joined. My friends are the best. My instructors are the best. My gym is the best. 🙂
