Hello Greenville! I am so happy to be partnering with Greenville360 and Sportsclub Fitness and Wellness to share my 6-month fitness journey. Sportsclub is a locally owned fitness and wellness center that has been in Greenville since 1975 (way before I was born.) Their mission is to provide the best health club experience to the Upstate through a wide variety of services catering to everyone. They have locations in Greenville, Simpsonville, and Five Forks.
A little about me: My name is Kathryn Ambrose and I am a 23-year-old young professional. I am a new transplant to Greenville but my roots started here when my parents met in college at Furman University. I moved here 2 months ago from Atlanta for a job in Performance Psychology at Synergy Performance. I have moved a lot in the past four years including living Edinburgh, Scotland while completing a Master’s degree. I love travelling and experience new cultures so my year abroad was an unbelievable time in my life. However, I grew up in North Carolina so the Carolinas have always been near and dear to my heart and I am excited to start my career here in Greenville.
Fitness is a big part of my life starting as a competitive gymnast leading ultimately to the opportunity to compete as a Division I pole vaulter at Drake University. Today, I enjoy biking, running, hiking, and hot yoga to stay active and to maintain a good healthy mindset. I have found Greenville to be such an active city with the great bike trails, workout studios, and hiking so nearby.
Over the next 6 months, I will be sharing my fitness journey at Sportsclub where I will experience all the services that this comprehensive health club has to offer. I will start with their p.r.e.p. program to develop my health goals and see where I am starting today. I will then experience the Healthy Start program which is a small (2-3 individual) group of liked-aged individuals that creates a program to introduce individuals to the health club. This program will help me stay accountable to my own health and activity. I will then have sessions with a personal trainer to develop a program around my needs and goals.
Throughout the experience, I will see everything Sportsclub has to offer like group exercise classes, tennis, a pool, and some great workout equipment. I am excited to share this journey and hopefully inspire others to be active and healthy! I hope you enjoy following along. Talk again soon.
