Once again, it’s time for another installment of our WOD-Killah feature! We’ve been continuing the tradition of highlighting good community spirit and the potential for athletic excellence for many months now, yet we’ve only just begun to tap the surface of all the talent we’re seeing in the gym. Without further ado, it’s time to announce our feature WOD-Killah athlete for the month of November:
A warm congratulations to Wendy Callendar!
If you don’t know much about Wendy, here’s your chance to get to know her better through her fantastic video interview by Ryan Clarke.
Wendy truly embodies the giving, dedicated, community spirit we try to foster here at The Zone. She is the first one to smile and look at things with an optimistic attitude, and is a perfect example that brains, strength and beauty are not mutually exclusive. 😉
We would like to thank Wendy for being such an integral part of the Zone since 2009. It’s long-term members like her that help inspire others to stick with it and keep coming! If you see Wendy around the gym, be sure to give her a hug and congratulate her on a job well done.
