The Woodlands Member Success: Sara Forbes
This month we want to introduce our member of the month – Sara Forbes. She became our member quite recently and had already found herself a perfect workout routine, fitness advisor and supporter of her passion of weightlifting.
She says, “I'm 45 years old and have two kids (six and 8 years old) They love to come to VillaKids and do all kids activities there! We just moved to the Woodlands this summer from Nashville, TN. It means a lot to me that they are having a great time.
I got into powerlifting in Nashville about one and a half year ago. I'd been working out and loved watching all the powerlifters in my gym back in Nashville. The women all had so much fun working out and had these amazing bodies. My trainer was also a powerlifter so tried it and I was hooked. I was horrified to leave my trainer and my gym when we moved here. I was searching for a gym with lifters and was so happy to meet Brooke Knox! Not only was she a lifter but she was my age! Bonus! Brooke is not only a competitive powerlifter but an amazing and supportive trainer. In the short time we've been working together she has improved my form and improved every aspect of my workout.”
VillaSport is very excited to know that our members achieve their fitness goals while having a great time and workout with amazing trainers! We congratulate Sarah and Brooke in their participation and winning gold medals in US Powerlifting Association Houston Fall Classic that took place on October 14, 2017. Sara’s results were 209 lbs squat, 126 lbs bench press and 253 lbs deadlift. Brook’s results were 275 lbs squat and 330 lbs deadlift.
Sara added: “You asked me what I like most about VillaSport? Well, truth be told... Brooke is my favorite thing about VillaSport. If it wasn't for her I would have never been able to throw up those numbers and do a lift meet”.
