From Finland to Amman’s Best Gym

Originally from Finland, Miina moved to Amman when her husband took at job at the US Embassy. She didn’t grow up playing many sports.  Basically she tried to stay in shape with running but was inconsistent.  She found it boring and very difficult to run here in Amman.  That’s when she and another friend from Finland decided it was time to try something different.  She’d heard great things about Crescent and after the first day, she new it was different than anything she’d tried before!

She’s spent time working for NGO’s in Central Asia before coming to Amman.  So she’s no stranger to learning to live in a new place.  In her own words

“Growing up, I wasn’t really that sporty, every now and again, I would go running, but I didn’t really do any sports when I was growing up.  I had heard really good things about Crescent.  I had friends who came here and then one of my Finnish friends said, “hey, you know, let’s test it out” and I said “sure, let’s do it!”  I got hooked immediately.

The coaches here have been awesome.  They know you personally.  They remember what you’re good at, what you’re struggling with.  They’re really supportive.  I feel like I have a purpose.  I feel like I’m really accomplishing something.  I don’t think I’ve ever been healthier.”

If you want to be able to say “I don’t think I’ve ever been healthier”, we can help!
