FitRev’s October Member of the Month – Shelly!
We are SO excited to announce FitRev’s October Member of the Month, Shelly Newhouse! Shelly has been with FitRev since the doors opened. Shelly was one of the ONLY people in our night classes back in the old studio. The true OG of FitRev.
FitRev is so incredibly happy to send Shelly some love. Shelly tackled breast cancer two years ago and during those two years, she continued to work out with us. Shelly is not only a joy to have in class, but we can always count on her to motivate our team! Her strength and determination during her treatments was beyond what we could comprehend. Shelly took classes with her beautiful bald head. She is determined, strong and resilient. We all want her drive, her courage, and her motivation. Shelly, you are an inspiration to all of us at FitRev.
Thank you for all that you have done for FitRev and for teaching all of us how to be strong and fight the fight. You rock girlfriend! We love you!
Your mind is a powerful thing. When you fill it with positive thoughts, your life will start to change.

If you had the luxury of time to re-read one book, which one would you choose? I would probably read new books! As many as I could

What’s your favorite memory at FitRev? I don’t know if it’s my favorite, but it’s memorable. I was so embarrassed to workout with my bald head at first, but no one really gave a shit about it and everyone was so supportive and caring at FitRev. I’ve never really met a group of women like that. I think it’s wonderful that we can raise each other up instead of tearing each other down!
We LOVE you, Shelly.
