April Member of the Month

Our April Member of the Month is Chelsea Rodriguez, along with her kiddo, Aislin. Chelsea and Ailsin moved to Bellingham from Portland in 2015. They joined BAC in  2016, and they both enjoy various activities around the club. Aislin participates in our  Junior Racquetball program, takes swimming lessons, and loves her Junior Orientation privileges. Chelsea enjoys weight lifting and getting her heart rate up with some personal training.

Chelsea grew up in Spokane, WA, so she’s a Northwesterner at heart. She spent 8 years serving in the United States Navy and now works in security at a medical facility in Skagit County.

Chelsea is getting married in June, so their family is about to grow a little larger! Chelsea and her fiance enjoy exploring all of the trails around the Northwest and are avid hikers. In fact, Chelsea is training with one of our excellent training staff, Alexa, for a backpacking trip up to Mount Baker this summer!

Outside of the gym, Chelsea indulges in several crafting hobbies, including crochet, knitting, Brazilian Embroidery, and Japanese Braiding. Thanks Chelsea and Aislin, for being such active and inspiring members!

March Member of the Month

Congratulations to our Member of the month for March – Yanina De Brites! Yanina moved to Bellingham from Venezuela 10 years ago. She joined BAC in 2009, and is celebrating 10 years with us in November! Yanina loves the community and feels very blessed to live in a city where she has made such great friends. 

When looking for a place to work out, the most important factor was finding a safe place to leave her 3 boys. They love coming to the Kids Club at BAC and are involved in several programs there. Yanina also enjoys attending a variety of Group Exercise classes, where she’s made lots of friends. Her husband also works out at the club, so the whole family is able to come in stay active and fit together.

Yanina’s life revolves around her three boys. They keep her very busy, so being able to take an hour in her day for a class (and knowing her boys are having fun) makes such a difference. When they aren’t working out together, she and her four boys enjoy going on bike rides and hiking, or any physical activity they can do as a family!

Yanina: we at BAC love your family, and the instructors are always happy to see you in the studio. Thank you for being such a dedicated member.
