Kathy Whitehurst says: “I Love MBS!”
One of the brightest stars at our gym is the beautiful Kathy Whitehurst who has been a member since its inception.
“My husband, Mike and I along with our four children moved to Boca Raton in 1986 so that Mike could join the faculty in Exercise Science at FAU. At the same time, I joined the staff at Boca Pointe where I met Michael Papamichael and later, I met Fotis. In 1988 Michael opened his own gym and I joined shortly thereafter,” she says.
“Our four children and their spouses have blessed Mike and me with nine grandchildren. Fotis knows all four of my children, two of my daughters-in -law and all nine grandchildren. My entire family – all 19 of us -enjoy working out.” she says. it’s all about being healthy and taking care of ourselves.”
Kathy has had her fair share of health challenges, but like the true trooper she is, hardly missed a beat during her cancer treatments in 2008 and 2013.
“I came to rely on Michael’s for exercise but more for camaraderie, love and support.,” she adds. “Yes, I am a very lucky girl…and, to this day, I am most grateful for my gym and all my supportive and loving friends.”
“I enjoy the classes at Michael’s and currently I work out with Fotis’ Boot Camp, Brian’s TRX and Gerry’s Yoga Class. Michael’s staff and trainers are knowledgeable, courteous and are all about service! I love Michael’s Gym – it’s where I work out to build strength, flexibility, endurance all while enjoying friendships and community. “
