The Rad Mom Club
Here at EZIA Athletic Club, our goal is to help all clients enhance their quality of life. We focus on teaching each client to enjoy a balanced living and active lifestyle every day. At EZIA we have the pleasure of working with four extraordinary local Nantucket women. We call them our rad mom group, but other locals they are known as Audrey Sterk, Lisa Botticelli, Julie Jordin, and Nicole Marks. These lovely ladies have been training with us for a long time. Twice a week they attend a small group training session with our trainers at EZIA.

What’s their typical training session like?
For our Rad Mom’s, they start each session by using the foam rollers or other tools on the therapy wall. The goal of this is to get any knots or tight muscles relaxed before their session. Next, our trainers start them with a dynamic warm-up, followed by a conditioning circuit. Later, through the session our Rad Mom’s work on intense circuits that challenge their strength, stability, endurance, and power.
Each of these ladies brings their own amazing dynamic characters to the group. Even though they each have different fitness goals they want to work on. As a result, each push each other to work harder and do the best that they can physically each session. These ladies bring such a contagious positive energy to each session! All of our trainers at EZIA enjoy every session with the Rad Mom’s and we cannot wait to see them crush the rest of their fitness goals!
