“Happier, Healthier & have to buy New Clothes!”

Dawna – CKO Santee Success Story!

Describe yourself: My name is Dawna, I’m 52 and work as the Branch Administrator at Marco Crane. I’m a single “mom” to two lovable Chocolate Labs, we’ve lived in Santee for almost 4 years and I’m East County born and raised.

Why am I a Member at CKO Santee? This could be a long list, but I’ll try to keep it short…. I started at CKO to get off the couch, get stress relief and become a less angry person. I stay at CKO because I’m treated like family. For those that are as old as me or enjoy older TV shows… I feel like Norm walking through the door at Cheers, I even have a bag with my fist print on it – ha! I love this place! Besides, no one gets hurt when I punch the bag really hard, except maybe my knuckles.

What positive results have you seen in your life since you started CKO?
I am so much happier, so much healthier and yes I had to buy new clothes. I’ve made a ton of new friends, I’ve run a few 5Ks and I’m signed up to run 2 more Spartan Races with my CKO crew – something I never would have even attempted on my own.
