Amazing Member: Kent Fortin
After moving from Seattle to the Sacramento area in 2006, Kent Fortin, his wife Cheri, and their two children joined the Arden Hills family. Kent began training with me shortly thereafter with a focus on strength and conditioning. In our initial training sessions, Kent was capable of completing my classes but struggled with some portions of the strength training, like push-ups. Kent’s dedication to fitness and his commitment to working hard has since paid off. Kent has made tremendous improvements and he recently completed a workout that included over 75 push-ups. When Kent is here, he is always pushing himself to lift heavier weights and increase his abilities overall which is why Kent was voted the Arden Hills Amazing Member. Congratulations, Kent! “I have really come to appreciate strength and conditioning because it has helped me to see that I am capable of working
harder and doing more than I ever thought possible,” says Kent. “Plus I have met so many encouraging people in these workouts. The camaraderie is great!” His fitness advice? “Energy begets energy,” he says. “Also, being willing to learn more, even when you think you know what you’re doing, can keep the workouts lively and interesting.” When Kent isn’t working out at Arden Hills, he’s maintaining an active and healthy lifestyle by jogging. He also enjoys watching his children grow as athletes and competitors, participating in soccer, swim, and martial arts—depending on the day or season. So when you see Kent spending time at the resort with his family, be sure to congratulate him on being our Arden Hills Amazing Member.
