Bellingham Athletic Club

October Member of the Month

We are so honored to celebrate Jim and Karen Hollingsworth as our October Members of the Month! They are both very dedicated to physical fitness and to BAC: Jim has been a member for 25 years and Karen for 33 years! Their careers and vacations have always been extremely active and demanding so working out at BAC has relieved stress and kept them fit.

Jim enjoys water aerobics and yoga classes. He works out with his personal trainer, Cindy, whom he appreciates. Karen’s activities include yoga classes, Aqua Zumba® on occasion, and Weights for Women. Karen has also expanded her horizon to take tap dance classes and return to ice skating which has been easier to accomplish because of BAC classes teaching her balance and coordinating with strength.

Living in the historical Fountain District gives Jim and Karen the opportunity to walk the many miles every week to BAC, the library, run errands, go to the movies and the theatre. They have enjoyed many world travel trips—just the two of them or occasionally with a guide or driver for a safe journey. They also have white water rafted and kayaked many, many times in Western North America and included their grandchildren on these expeditions.

Jim and Karen would like to thank the personal warmth of the greeters at the front desk, the amazing and positive Jill Robertson, their yoga instructors, Michal and Elena, who have them bend and twist in ways they didn’t think was possible and a big thanks to Tiffany who cracks the whip over the class with Karen on Fridays.

Thank you, Jim and Karen! We appreciate your humor, kindness and all the goodies you bring to BAC!
