Employee Spotlight 
Name: Laura Fowler
IHF Employee Since: September 2008 when I started life guarding downtown

Occupation: Member Services Representative at Community Corners; Head Lifeguard/Assistant Manager at Cass Park

I started coming to Island because: I swam throughout my college years (swim team as an undergrad, swim club as a grad student) and knew that I wanted to keep swimming. I first came to Island looking for a job life guarding so I could continue swimming (which I did), and that eventually led me to expand my workout regimen.

My exercise routine at Island is: My exercise routine varies depending on how much time I have. Lately I have been doing a lot of HIIT workouts and at least one Body Flow class a week. When my schedule is more flexible, I will swim and add in more classes like TRX and Barre.

My favorite part of being a member at Island is: I think my favorite part of being at Island is that I have made a lot of great friends here; some of my best friends actually. I love being in an environment where we encourage each other to try different things and are proud of one another’s accomplishments; it has really helped me build my self-confidence and self-esteem. This is one of the reasons why I just recently went and got certified to teach Body Flow.

When I’m not working out at Island I like to: I love attending Paint Nights- you can go and “learn” how to paint a picture while sipping on an adult beverage of your choice. I also enjoy spending my free time relaxing at home with my fiancé and dog.

Tell us something about yourself that most people would not know: I love attending different events such as heavy metal concerts, WWE live events, stand-up comedy shows, and sporting events.
