Meet May Member of the Month, Mark Jefferson. When our GM Bresni asked Mark about his experience with MINT he shared that “MINT has been downright transformational over the years in terms of flexibility, strength, endurance, and at times, sanity. It has always been not only a great place not only to work out, but also a work-week respite, and weekend primer. MINT went to great lengths during the pandemic to create a safe way for us to continue doing so despite the required limitations.”
Mark originally joined MINT with the goal to fit into certain clothes still hanging in his closet which he was able to achieve while working with a MINT personal trainer in the beginning. What keeps him coming back is the ongoing goal of staying healthy and in shape while maintaining flexibility. Now that the restrictions of the pandemic are lifting he’s excited to get back to his routine and include some more cardio-focused in his workouts.
When Mark isn’t working with a trainer or jumping on the treadmill, elliptical, or rower he enjoys attending the candle-light virtual yoga class with Laura to end his workweek. Recently he has really enjoyed Ferdaious’s outdoor Saturday morning outdoor yoga class. Core fitness groups are another favorite for Mark and he has continued to incorporate some of the exercises he has learned during those classes (specifically Gabe’s) every day!
The next time you see Mark, whether it is in the club or in a yoga class be sure to give him a wave and say hello!
