Coaches Spotlight – Brooke Laycock aka #BFF
BFF stands for Blonde, Fit and Fun. Brooke has been a standout member for a few years and over the last year taken her talents to coaching at CPM. She has got to be one of my most favorite people to be around.
If I had a nickel for when someone has stand, “I wish I did CPM when I was younger….” Brooke is fortunate to be on that younger side and she excels at sharing her knowledge and passion for making Health and FITness apart of anyones lifestyle (no matter the age).
