Fitness Update – June 10

Special Announcement: Employee of the Month, June 2019

Marlena Santiago

It is an honor to announce Marlena Santiago as the Employee of the Month.

Marlena has been a group exercise instructor for several years. She teaches various types of classes each week and is constantly motivating and empowering class participants to keep working and achieve new goals. Her annual Halloween full-costume themed classes are one of a kind, and her “Planksgiving” contest (honoring who can hold a plank the longest) has become a Thanksgiving Day staple.

Marlena is an instrumental part of the Fitness Department and a true asset to Sun City Shadow Hills. Congratulations on her a well-deserved recognition as Employee of the Month!
