20160319_144039What started as an innocuous post on Reddit’s (relax) Baltimore board turned into me checking out MissionFit Baltimore’s spacious and lofty work out area. I met with MFB’s trainer Geoff Blake, who taught me a new way to do squats (Bulgarian Split Squats) and alked about MissionFit’s vision. After our conversation I got to meet the nonprofit’s founder, Wendy Wolock. We talked for a bit and decided she’d be a great guest for the podcast. A self described “suburban white woman”, Wendy combined her desire to give back to the community with her fitness background to give Baltimore kids a safe space to work out and be surrounded by positive vibes. The initial spark for MissionFit was a teacher that taught Wendy in her childhood. The result is a gym space in Remington where kids and adults can come and do better.
