WESTBROOK, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- What are you doing at 5 o'clock in the morning? The people of Train Your Inner Athlete over at the Westbrook Community Center are getting the job done! Yes, most say it is hard to get out of bed that early for a workout, but the support system of the group is the perfect motivation to make sure you show up.
The group started up at the Westbrook Community Center a little over a year ago. Their Trainer, Lisa Petruccelli said she would teach a workout class, but it had to be at 5:30AM. What started as just four people has now grown to a group of over 50 people. Many of the participants are not only proud of the things that they have accomplished with the class, but also just proud to say that they get up that early in the morning for their workout. They pack the gym in every morning doing everything from swimming, to running, to a boot camp style workout.
Because these classes are offered through a community center, this is probably one of the cheapest workouts you will find around. In fact, the people that come everyday with a year pass are only paying about $1.25 per workout! The benefits you get from the classes go beyond the gym. This class has brought people together in the community that would otherwise not know each other. They continue their conversations of support and motivation on their Facebook page.
