Strong Community Leaders – “Betties and Buddies”
A large part of our success is a direct result of our strong community of Veteran Boot Campers.  We like to call them Betties and Buddies!  In addition to providing encouragement and motivation to participants throughout the week, Betties and Buddies organize events over the weekends.  These are open to everyone and designed to:

1.  Provide an opportunity to get extra movement in on the weekends.
2.  Promote community spirit and connections within and outside the group.
3.  Encourage the first-timers to participate and experience the joy of group fitness.
4.  Explore and enjoy all the beautiful parks, trails, and running paths in the Seattle area.

Robin Gibsonis a group fitness enthusiast and regular participant with Vast Fitness.  She holds the official title of  “ VP of Enthusiasm” on the Sweaty Betties MeetUp page and is one of the organizers.  Along with Vast Fitness vet, Damon Jones, Robin organizes and leads “Betties and Buddies” events on weekends. 

Although Robin grew up in San Diego, CA (where it is sunny all the time!), she has felt a strong connection to Seattle from the moment she arrived.  She loves the trees and being outside in the fresh air, starting her day with an early workout and laugh with her buddies.

Robin is a mother of two, has a PhD in Biochemistry and works at the University of Washington as a Research Scientist.  When she is not organizing or participating in outdoor boot camps or trail runs, she enjoys listening to audiobooks while commuting on her bike, hiking, swimming and dancing to zydeco and blues.
