  • #AllWeNeedisLove

    Robin Wentworth is a man about town who seemingly knows everybody. Some refer to him as the social chairman of Hattiesburg or the engineer who leads the party train. Others call him a rock star (both on and off the job), a fun, jolly and magnetic guy in every way who loves life (especially night life) and wants to be a part of everything. He’s known as someone who is full of life and celebrates it intensely.

    But the biggest kudo is being called a friend and there are many.

Surprised to discover the non-profit was only 15 minutes (and one time when running late for a Toning Express class, a memorizing 12-minute jaunt) from my doorstep, I contacted Membership Coordinator Ginny Reynolds to schedule an orientation.

  • Fit on 4th Street

    While I've bragged about my arsenal of gym memberships, there has always been a workout even I have avoided: high intensity interval training with big ole weights, commonly known as Crossfit. It wasn't a fear of gaining bulky muscles or inconvenient class times that kept me away; I was flat out intimidated.
