Jackie – Student of the Decade Plus One More!
Now don’t get me wrong, we have a lot of really great, great folks who come to Blue Wave. In fact, the sheer number of amazing people who participate in our programs is probably breaking some kind of law of nature. Having said that, there is a particular individual who is really outstanding in so many ways and we would like to publicly recognize her. Jackie O’Rourke. Now, she will be shy and demur about her participation, but let the numbers speak for themselves…
Since enrolling in October of 2011 Jackie has attended 662 classes of varying kinds including Boot Camp in the early morning, Kickboxing late at night, and everything in between. Often, Jackie will come to more than one class in a day. In addition she is involved in Personal Training and has attended 139 grueling workout PT sessions. Furthermore, Jackie has participated in every single Hard Corps Program we have offered and was actually the Champion on two separate occasions! In every class she attends, or group she works out with, Jackie is always at the top in terms of performance. And, she is always ready for more.
Now, if attendance and work ethic were the only outstanding characteristics about Jackie this would be a great way to recognize her. But, the fact of the matter is Jackie is a HUGE cheerleader for Blue Wave. Constantly spreading the word to her friends, coworkers, and even total strangers, she is always trying to introduce our little world here to everyone she comes into contact with. Next, Jackie is a friend to EVERYONE in class. She loves to dish out a healthy ration of trouble to her workout partners and is always willing to partner or work with anyone. And finally, lively and always full of fun, she is at EVERY social event. Jackie O’Rourke is a superb human being and Blue Wave is so much the better for her being here. This recognition is too little…but we’re not giving out prizes this week!
Oh, and the “plus one more”…it’s an inside joke! Ask Jackie!
