Helen is a real champ, an early bird, and an all-around incredible human. She has many different talents in her trade, and we appreciate them all. We love seeing her face at 4:48 a.m. (yes, we said early bird – she’s never late to class) when she arrives with her beau, Corey, each morning for the 5 a.m. sesh. She’s committed, dedicated, and always wanting to get better, because she knows what she does in the gym translates into all the greatness outside the gym. She’s determined, as well, in her personal training sessions, to hit new goals like pull-ups and getting comfortable upside down, and she makes great gains with every one!
