My name is Mallori, and I recently joined the In Shape team.  When I came on as a summer camp lead, it was with the intention of only staying through the summer, while the after school program I was the director for, was being renovated.  However, after only two months of working at the West Lane club, in Stockton, Ca, I fell in love with the company.   

As soon as you walk in the door to the club, the positive energy is immediate.  It feels great to be a part of a team like In Shape.  Many companies have mission statements, but few actually embrace them.  In Shape does not only promote a healthy lifestyle to its staff and members, but it takes an active role in helping them accomplish their fitness goals.   

During my life, I have never had an issue with weight, until, my son was born.  While I was pregnant I gained almost 70 pounds.  After he was born, I lost about 40 pounds on my own, but then hit a wall. Since working at In Shape, I have maintained a clean diet, and am working out six days a week.  I have lost 15 additional pounds, and am continuing to consistently lose weight. 

I have recently made the decision to stay with In Shape, while returning to school to complete my Fitness Specialist Certification.  I am excited to be working for such a great company, and to begin my career in the fitness industry. 

My aspirations within this company are, to reach out to our members and help them to lead a healthy lifestyle.  I want to help people get active, find relaxation in their day, and to assist them in reaching all of their health and fitness goals. 

In Shape has already made so many positive changes in my life, and I look forward to passing that energy onto our members!
