“Thank you for selecting me as member of the month, an honour that is legitimately the pinnacle of my athletic career. I never could have risen to these heights without the support of Michael, who gave me my first tour and convinced me Forge was a place I’d fit in, and Tina, whose training has made me stronger and has mostly helped me avoid hurting myself with my clumsy tendencies.
Mostly. I am truly grateful to Forge staff and members who have welcomed me into the early morning team, encouraging me and inspiring me without seeming to need my brain to be awake enough to engage in actual conversation. Despite its intimidating appearance, Forge is very much a gym for everyone. Thank you all.” - Clare
