Congratulations to our January athlete of the month, Joanne Willoughby. Joanne is a dermatologist who started training with us in September 2014 with her son Rowan. As a health professional Joanne was quite health conscious but had little experience with resistance training. Since then she has improved her skill and conditioning steadily during her tenure at Royal City. She is now able to handle fairly advanced functional movements such as rope climbs toes to bar and often finishes WODs before some of our top athletes.

Joanne always brings a terrific attitude and a genuine desire to improve herself with every workout. Regardless of how challenging the workout may seem, she never uses that as excuse to skip a WOD.

She exemplifies a ‘never quit’ attitude that we, as coaches, try to instill in all of our athletes. She is very attentive to our coaches and continues to push her fitness at a steady and manageable pace. That is why she continues to improve as an athlete and that is why she is our January Athlete of the Month.

As with all of our athletes of the month, Joanne receives a prize pack from Body Systems as well as member rewards points equivalent to a one month Unlimited membership.

Congratulations Joanne and keep up the good work!
