February 2020 Member of the Month: Donna Roder

Feb 6, 2020 | The Pointe

Donna has been a member of The Pointe since the summer of 2001! Needless to say, she is a worthy member of the month candidate. She originally sought out a facility that she and her family could grow with. She remembers her 6am workouts upon first joining. This routine has since evolved into a later morning start, but she hasn’t let her fitness habits waiver.

Donna has four boys ranging from age 15 to 19 with a set of 17 year old twins. Over the years, she has become an expert in living in “Mom World” running kids to various activities and sports participation. In addition she has made a habit of volunteering for her kids activities whether it be grade school parties or organizing fundraisers for sports teams. Before that, she taught French and Spanish. In 1997 she stopped formally teaching and began tutoring which she continues today.

When talking about what she likes most about The Pointe, Donna mentions the variety available. It has everything she needs from a fitness center and over the years has provided options for her kids. This particularly comes in handy when kids are out of school due to snow days or other reasons. Another aspect she likes is the sense of community. Although cliché, she enjoys how she gets to know people by name and members and staff are friendly. She specifically mentions how Matt, the Fitness Manager, is readily available and stops everything to help members in the fitness center. When asked for words of wisdom for new and potential Pointe members, she cites the excellent value. The Pointe offers a lot for a little, particularly for families.

Congratulations, Donna, for being recognized as member of the month. We appreciate your dedication and support over the years!
