  • Linden Stewart is July’s Fitness Member of the Month


    “Linden likes having supportive and knowledgeable coaches that always push her to work hard in class.”

    These are the words of her boyfriend, James Morton, who is also the Head Fitness Instructor at Straight Blast Gym Buford.  Linden Stewart just recently hit her 3 year anniversary with SBG Buford, over which time she has achieved some RIDICULOUS results!

    Linden has played sports all of her life, and enjoys taking on new challenges.  It was this mindset that led her to Straight Blast Gym.  What started off as a fascination with weight lifting turned into a full-fledged health blitzkrieg, as she began attending Fitness Performance classes on the regular.  Between the weight lifting, explosive movements, endurance, and muscular toning & hypertrophy, Linden was firing on all cylinders!!!


    Earlier this year, she wanted to expand her fitness regimen and she began doing Fitness Kickboxing classes.  Coach James tells us:

    “She loves being physically active and lifting weights, but she wanted to try something new.  She’s liked the Fitness Kickboxing classes so much that now she’s interested in doing Muay Thai.”

    This type of progression is not uncommon at SBG.  Many athletes start in one fitness or martial art program and quickly expand to another.  Linden is now crushing it in not one but TWO fitness programs!  There are certain athletes that you can always count on to be in class, listen to and follow directions, and lead from the front.  Linden checks the boxes on all of those characteristics.

    Keep up the amazing work, Linden.  We look forward to seeing you in Muay Thai 😉
