Congratulations to our Client of the Month in Somerville: Meghan Connolly!
What is your hometown? Marshfield, MA
What brought you to DPT? Facebook marketing finally got me, lol. But also, I was tired of always being out of breath at dance class and really needed to find something to increase my stamina that I would actually stick with. But mostly Facebook.
How long have you been training with us? Since February 2018
What do you do in the “real world?” (job, family, pets, etc) Human Resources for a non-profit Human Services agency in Chelsea.
What is one fun fact that most people don’t know about you? Before I worked in Human Resources, I actually went to school for and briefly worked in radio. I worked mostly doing promotions and in the office, but I got to voice a whopping 2 commercials (at least one of which outlasted me at the radio station)
What is your favorite exercise and why? Deadlifts! I think because it’s super satisfying to lift heavy things.
What is your biggest gym achievement so far? Probably the first time I noticed actual muscles in my arms. I 100% ran around my house screaming “CHECK OUT MY ARMS”
What inspires and motivates you? Just seeing everyone around me at DPT who is also just trucking along through their own progress and journey. Also, swag.
What would you say to someone who is thinking about joining or who has just joined DPT? Set realistic goals and pay attention to how your body is changing vs. how you want it to change. Some weeks you do a really awesome job and nail every workout and some weeks you are just desperately hoping this isn’t the week where you finally throw up on a sidewalk in Somerville at 7am.
