TherapyPlus Member of the Month – Tabatha Hopper

A long time ago, my dad told me a story about him growing up on the farm.

Before his dad (my grandfather) left for work one morning, he was asked to finish putting up a barb wire fence. Most of the fence posts were already in the ground with the exception of 8-10 posts. My dad decided he would save some time by estimating the proper location to place the final posts. Needless to say the final portion of the fence wasn’t straight. When my grandfather got home he made my dad take the entire fence down and start over. Grandfather told my dad “anything worth doing is worth doing right the first time.” That was a lesson that only had to be taught one time for my day and myself. Our member of the month also lives by that motto. She gives everything she does 100% and inspires others around her to do the same. On behalf of Therapy plus Fitness, I would like to congratulate Tabatha Hopper for earning Member of the Month for June 2015.

Tabatha decided to start working out to improve her health and to lower her body fat percentage. With the encouragement of her co-worker and friend (Britt Knott), the decision to join Therapy plus Fitness was an obvious choice. Tabatha said the location and the employees here were also a great incentive to become a member at TPF. Since her first workout, she has lost 9 pounds, 5% body fat, and decreased 2 sizes in her clothing. Her workout routine consists of 5 days per week Body Sculpting class with Jack, lifting weights, swimming 2 days per week, and running bleachers once a week.

In her spare time, Tabatha loves to spend time with her sons (Jacob 13 and Joshua 8) and camping. She plans on competing in the Barbarian Challenge in June with Britt. The Barbarian Challenge is an obstacle course race held at Noccalulu Falls in Gadsden. Her suggestion to others is to “make up your mind, set your goals, and go for it!” Tabatha wanted to say a special thanks to her husband for all of his love, support, and encouragement.

Once again Tabatha, congratulation on all of your accomplishments and best of luck in all of your future endeavors. It is great individuals like yourself that makes Therapy plus Fitness the best place around to meet all of your fitness needs.
