To continue our posts for National Physical Fitness & Sports Month, we're featuring another LZX employee's thoughts and stories on physical activity. Today's post is all about Michelle. Michelle is new to the LZX team, and we are thrilled to have her.
She works in both our Customer Service and Shipping Departments and does a fantastic job. Here's what she has to say about sports and activity. Enjoy!
What was your favorite sport/activity as a kid and why?
I enjoyed playing softball and basketball growing up. I grew up watching baseball and basketball with my dad. I enjoy the fast pace of basketball and the fact that it truly is a team sport. Softball is also a team sport but is a little more individual when it comes to hitting and fielding.
What is your favorite sport/activity as an adult and why?
Softball and volleyball. I enjoy getting together with friends one night a week to compete doing something that we love. It’s a good way to interact with others as well as stay active.
Tell us your favorite sports/activity memory.
Playing with the marching band on the 4th of July in Washington, D.C., in front of the White House. We were also able to tour the White House, and you are not allowed to do that anymore - definitely one of my favorite memories.
Did you play sports in High School? College? Tell us about it!
In High School, I was in marching band. I didn’t start up softball and volleyball again until after I finished school. I then joined the adult leagues.
What are your thoughts on the importance of physical activity and sports?
I feel physical activity and sports are very important not only for the benefits of staying active, but also all the lessons that you can learn when it comes to being a team player, how to get along with others and how to handle each situation whether you win or lose. The social part as well as the physical part are very important.
Great thoughts from Michelle! Stay tuned for more featured LZX team members.
