Inspirational Member of the Month: Aisha Martin
Please join Seattle Athletic Club in congratulating Aisha Martin for Inspirational Member of the Month. Aisha is being recognized for her dedication to fitness and the Seattle Athletic Club. Her positive energy combined with her passion for staying fit inspired her to create a program at her company, Horizon Realty Advisors, called Healthy with Horizon. With over 300 employees across 8 states, her goal was to motivate and support team members towards a healthy lifestyle. Her philosophy, “I believe that an office that works out together stays together!” Aisha runs monthly contests to get people involved and excited about fitness. Last year she started Fitness Fridays where she encouraged the office to join the noon Interval Training class. That evolved into group workouts most days of the week, some of which are in the mornings playing basketball and some during the lunch hour. SAC loves to see the Healthy for Horizon team jump in and work out together. They work hard together, sweat together and they have fun together!! Aisha said, “Having a workout buddy encourages people to go more often than going alone. I love it! Plus, we have no excuse with the gym right across the street.”
Aisha’s passion for fitness took off in high school when she started to take dance seriously. She did jazz, tap, ballet, hip-hop, modern, theater, she took it all and loved it! After high school, she became an instructor and taught Zumba, Boot Camp, Cardio Groove ’n Tone (dance aerobics), and Dance Fun and Fitness (children’s dance class). Aisha said, “I believe when you live a healthy lifestyle it pushes positivity into all aspects of life. I feel better when I eat healthy and workout; I am happier and have more energy.” Her current fitness goals include recruiting more people from her office to work out at SAC, increase her weight selection in BODYPUMP, and she wants to lose the last few pounds she gained after having her son.
Thank you for your inspiration Aisha!!
