How did you come across enduraLAB? I worked with Jenny York and asked where she worked out. She offered to take me to enduraLAB to try a workout, and it was exactly what I was looking for. After that, I offered to help out with maintenance and operations and it went from there. I've been with the LAB for nearly three years.
