Forrest has been in and around athletics since he was 5 but only recently come to appreciate and love the emotions that come with Group Fitness. "There's just something about the feeling of building a stronger, healthier, more positive community that gets me stoked!" Growing up in Northern Michigan (shout out to Leelanau County) Forrest has enjoyed a small town community at it's finest, one where people know each other by name and genuinely care for others. It's a mindset that he brings to every class and looks to extend beyond the four walls of the gym. He enjoys building relationships and connecting with others with the end goal of helping others become the best versions of themselves. When he's not leading classes you can find Forrest making friends, playing soccer, traveling as much as his budget permits, and enjoying the little rests in between.
