January 2022

Jody loves walking into the CGC for her daily workout in the Fitness Centre. With a big smile and a fun attitude towards working out, she's spent the past 15 months diligently focused on her fitness goal, and achieving it! One of Jody's favourite things about being a member is the opportunity to see everyone on their own fitness journeys. While she's definitely a regular in the Fitness Centre, she also enjoys using the Track and has taken a few Spin and Yoga classes too.
