SIGN UP HERE!
In recent weeks, we introduced you to two of our panelists, Jenny Schild with Body Within and Leslie Barrett of Zumba with Leslie Barrett. This week, meet our next panelist, Martha Soraruf who operates Cardio Drumming Hosted by PURE Fitness & Nutrition: Powered by Arbonne.
We know many of you have seen (and heard!) the supercharged cardio drumming classes going on at Hometown! Over the past 3 years, Martha has been motivating students with her infectious energy.
As an elementary school teacher, she never envisioned becoming a business owner — the shift occurred about 7 years ago when she became an Arbonne consultant — which led Martha to be able to enjoy teaching both kids AND fitness-focused adults!
Martha loved Arbonne products so much that she wanted to share them with everyone she knew. And then she attended a drumming class where a friend turned to her and said, “You should teach this.” The next week, she started practicing and, within a month, she held her first class in her friend’s basement.
“I haven’t looked back since. I get to combine the best of both worlds — Arbonne and cardio drumming,” shares Martha. “I love what I do — all of it. I provide a service but it serves me as well. I’ve become a person who takes risks and tries new things, for better or worse.”
Martha also does personal training and is a brand new Pound instructor. Meet this jack-of-many-trades next week… and be sure to bring your questions!
EFF Cancer Gravel Classic Ride
THIS SATURDAY at 4:30 PM
Tell us how you really feel about cancer! Come out for the 3rd Annual EFF Cancer ride and help honor those who are battling or have battled cancer.
This is a FREE event! Let’s raise awareness and have a great time while doing so!
Bagels, Bikes & Brew was a resounding success!
On Sunday, August 10th, Team Hometown Bicycles’ Title Sponsor, Vinnie Baylerian with Pro-Motion Physical Therapy, hosted an event to be remembered! It went so well that we’ll be planning a repeat for those who missed out!
Twenty cyclists arrived at Pro-Motion’s office for coffee and bagels, as well as a tour of the clinic, before heading off with Vinnie on a gravel/road ride and then wrapping things up with a cold beverage at Brewery Becker!
Many thanks to Hometownie, Jack Riddle, for being an integral part of planning the routes and an all-around great help!

In Team Hometown News…
Check out that familiar face to the left — Team Hometown Co-Captain, Joe Ostervik, at the finish line for ODRAM (One Day Ride Across Michigan) on Saturday, August 10th. Not sure he could look any happier, and we are stoked for him!
This fundraiser benefits the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation’s Ride to Cure Program. 2019 marked the 10th year that JDRF has been the beneficary of ODRAM, with nearly $50 million raised for research to deliver life-changing therapies and, one day, a cure for Type 1 diabetes (T1D).
The weather couldn’t have been more perfect as approximately 500 cyclists rolled cross-state to cover 150 miles from Montague to Bay City. Congrats, Team!
