Late this year

We found out that one of RaceStart’s own, Nadia, was diagnosed at age 37 with Follicular Lymphoma, a type of Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. Nadia has been training with us for almost 2 years and attends the 4PM class as well as weekend classes.  I can’t even begin to imagine the amount of mental and physical stress Nadia has been through over these last 6 months of treatment.  I can however, count on one hand how many times she has missed a workout during her chemo treatment. This woman trains harder than anyone I know; Determination, undeniable strength, and incredible talent for finding good in every situation- Nadia is the poster child for RaceStart.

Last week (in 5 days to be exact)

Our RaceStart community collected $2,765 to help our warrior fight cancer! We surprised Nadia with a check at our RS Holiday Event over the weekend. Many, many thanks to everyone for coming together and making this holiday extra special. This gym community continues to amaze me and I am extremely grateful for you all.

Nadia, from all of us at RaceStart

We love you, and continue to be inspired by your story. We will always have your back. Thank you for being you and for kicking cancers ass!

A special thank you from Nadia:

Words fail me as I attempt to express my gratitude for this EXTREMELY thoughtful and exceedingly generous gift. Simply knowing you went out of your way to think of me and support me, overwhelms my heart.
For me, the gym is a source of solace, comfort, and stability during a time of uncertainty. Having a community there who stands by me and treats me like just another sweaty person trying to get fit and stay sane, is the reason I’ve been a member for so long.
I talk about the gym all the time to people and the most common statement I say is: “the people are kind.” This is what has become even more important to me and dictated who I want to spend my time with and energy on. You have exemplified this to the fullest in this act of generosity and friendship.
For those of you who were there on Saturday, I hope you could feel and sense the gratitude (and surprise!) through my tears, which were those of love and mutual respect. I don’t know how I can repay you, but please know, that the feeling is reciprocal. I don’t just say the words “Fit Family”, but I mean it, and I will always be there for each and everyone one of you. I was going to say you just have to ask, but I realized that I did not ask for this gift and you gave anyway. Maybe that is the truest sense of giving and generosity.
From the bottom of my heart, thank you for supporting me through my cancer diagnosis and treatment. Both emotionally and now financially. And I hope you will be there with me through my future celebrations and the inevitable highs and lows to come. RaceStart is a gym. And it HAS made me stronger. I’m stronger with you at my side.
Love,

Nadia

“True transformation starts from within.”

I grew up pretty chubby… Yup! I wasn’t anywhere near fit and was like that for a good amount of my life, this made me depressed and anti-social because I thought “Who would want to hang out with me?” It didn’t help that my family wasn’t conscious about their health when I was growing up.

One day my mom threw me in a kickboxing class and I fell in love. Over 8 years of practicing  Olympic & Traditional Karate, Kickboxing and some MMA…Naturally this had an effect- It transformed my physical appearance, my self-confidence developed, as well as my social and mental well being. 

Health to me is so much more than physical appearance. To be fit is to be functionally strong! I want to make sure people can be the healthiest, strongest version of themselves while enjoying every aspect of their life.

I’m excited to start coaching at RaceStart, and I look forward to meeting you all!
