December's Success Story Winner is Kitty Pechet!


Kitty has been a Mount Auburn Club member for four decades! When she joined the club, she was instantly charmed by the variety of exercise options, encouraging instructors, and friendly staff. Kitty's love of exercise gave her the confidence to try surfing at the age of 50. To her surprise, she fell in love with her new sport and decided to take it to the next level.

At 81 years old, Kitty has won many surfing competitions along the East Coast and has an even greater appreciation for her ability to sustain her surfing passion. She also enjoys life without the typical aches and pains of an aging body and continues to live independently. She feels both of these benefits are directly related to her active lifestyle. To Kitty, Mount Auburn Club's vibrant energy keeps her feeling strong and vivacious. She relies on MAC’s training facilities and the club’s motivating atmosphere to help her prepare for competition.

For those who may be new to exercise or struggling to make it a priority, Kitty gives this advice: Try all of your options to discover what you enjoy, and what makes your body feel good and your mind refreshed. We look forward to seeing Kitty's future accomplishments and are excited to keep cheering her on!
