    I met Megan for the first time at the LaBlast convention in Miami June 2016, where she lead a LaBlast workout. She was also one of my amazing roommates. Megan is a true leader and very creative with her workouts. She is kind and cares about others and their well being. She is an excellent LaBlast Master trainer.
