50 Awesome People in the DC Fitness Community - Part 1

Boy does time fly.

This month Active Life DC turned one year old. Along the way we picked up 7000 Facebook friends, nearly 1400 Twitter followers, promoted an event, and held our first blogger happy hour.

We are expecting a much bigger year in 2014, but before we get to that, we want to send out a thank you to some of the awesome people that we met this year.

Over the course of this week, we are going to publish five posts, each highlighting ten members of the Washington D.C. fitness community. On our list we have yoga instructors, personal trainers, martial arts black belts, bloggers, and other fitness pros that inspire us to live healthier and happy lives.

To the people on this list and all the people reading it .... thank you for making Active Life DC possible! We look forward to seeing you all in 2014.
