Coach Laura’s Take: 

“I have had the privilege of coaching Sami for the past couple years, and she is such a fun and energetic girl. Sami has a spunk that is hard to come by! Sometimes she takes awhile to warm up to the idea of doing a WOD, but once she’s working she is a force to be reckoned with. I love to see her kick it into gear towards the end of the workout and finish strong. She is a great natural athlete, a great dancer and quite the performer. She has so much potential in whatever she chooses to do! She is her dad’s #1 Fan and Biggest Cheerleader. Everyone loves to see and hear Sami cheering on [dad] Dennis when he is competing or even just doing a class WOD. We are glad to have Sami, and I hope she will continue to be part of our Kids and Teens program for years to come!”
