Our members are awesome in so many ways!  Yesterday we posted about Jenny Niemann who climbed Pike’s Peak.  Today one of our first members, Cameron Powell, released an App called “Vemory”.  It’s a new social media app that compiles video memories from your social media photos.  Be sure to download it while it’s still free and support Cameron!  You can download it HERE and read a review of it HERE.  We’ll definitely be using it to create some ‘vemories’ here at the gym.
