Kara Mohrmann (March 2015)

Kara works incredibly hard every time she steps foot into the gym, and even puts in the work outside of the gym.  She is committed to her health and the health of her family, whom she sets such a great example for.  Kara asks questions and engages with those around her about workouts and is self driven to put in 100% every time!

We want to recognize Kara for always providing good feedback and setting and achieving your goals!  Congratulations and keep up the great work! Here is Kara’s story in her own words:

This is quite the honor.  I would have never thought when I started at Pursuit that I would one day be Member of the Month.  I came to Pursuit looking for a gym where I could maximize the limited amount of time I had to get in a good workout.  I also enjoy running and often get asked how I have time to go for runs as well as work out 2-3 times a week.  Being a wife, mom, and working full time outside of the home, I don’t have a lot – ok I don’t have any – free time.  I prioritize the time I have and thanks to my super supportive husband, I am able to make it work.
I had our third child in February 2013 followed by major surgery that summer. I was finally cleared for running and working out in October.  Personal trainers are expensive and certainly not within the Mohrmann budget.  I met with Ryan on Monday November 4, 2013, signed up, and returned that evening for my first group session.  I was hooked.

I have enjoyed my experience at Pursuit very much.  My favorite has been the strength training class I took and hope it is offered again!  I enjoy my 6am friends who don’t mind getting up early to get a work out in… I also feel like if I don’t go to a workout, I am letting them down.

I like that all of the trainers know you by name.  They want to know how you are doing, how your kids are, how the job hunt is going, etc. They care about us and take the time to actually talk to us.  I like that.

I feel like I have gained a lot of self confidence since joining Pursuit.  I am also stronger.  I have 3 boys and a husband who are active and like to play and be outside.  I want to be out there with them, not sitting on the sidelines watching.  I have Crohn’s Disease and keeping my body active, in shape, and healthy is a priority.

My future goals are pretty simple.  I want to FINALLY get rid of this purple band as well as continue eating more protein and veggies at every meal.  I have a few more pounds I would like to get rid of… I know it will be tough, but with the help of the great PFP Team I know I can do it!  I also have a supportive husband who gets our 3 kids ready for school EVERY morning that I am at the gym.  I certainly couldn’t do this without him.  I wouldn’t be where I am without Ryan, Adam, Sarah, and Joe pushing me, motivating me, encouraging me each time I come to the gym, so thank you guys!
