Endless Summer Paddle Co.

We were very excited to partner with Endless Summer Paddle Co. in Louisville for a special event we hosted on April 30. Endless Summer Paddle Company was founded in 2016 by Mimi Hahn and Matt Sheehan to address a need in the the greater Kentucky area: access to exploring and enjoying the region’s diverse waterways.

Mimi, a former outward bound instructor and current yoga instructor, jumped at the opportunity to bridge her two passions: yoga and outdoor water adventures. Mimi has a lifeguard, first aid, and CPR training through the American Red Cross. She is a Baptiste-certified yoga instructor and has trained in SUP techniques and SUP yoga instruction. She is excited to share her knowledge and experience with the community!

"I can't be near water without wanting to be 'on water.' It started as a child, with a love of swimming and the outdoors. Leading canoeing expeditions in my young adulthood helped nourish this passion and creating Endless Summer Paddle Company this past year has given me the opportunity to spend a majority of my time on the water. One of my favorite paddling memories is a time I lead a course on Florida's Suwannee River. I was working with a group of college aged students who were strong paddlers and determined to make it to our last pick up on the river, Fanning Springs. Due to some weather delays we got to the point where we needed to travel 100 miles in around 3 days. The students had an opportunity to chose a closer take out or to go for it. They decided to go for it and ended up creating a plan of aggressive paddling during the day and lashing the boats together at night to create a float and paddling in shifts while the majority of the group slept. The students were also training for a half marathon so we spent those 72 hours entirely on the water and got off only to run and poop. It was epic to say the least!" - Mimi Hahn

David Thompson - Testimonial

We are excited to start sharing testimonials from our clients. David Thompson has graciously shared his story with you below. 

"All you have to do is just look at my before and after pictures and you can pretty much figure out what I think about BareFit.  Yep, it’s pretty freakin’ amazing!  I lost about 50 pounds and dropped my body fat percentage from 27% to 18.5% in less than 6 months.  I’m back! At least to my college weight.  Even pants I bought 16 years ago are lose; I’ve been promising myself for over a decade I would fit into them again.

I’m 47 and I’ve been between 30-50 lbs. overweight for a dozen years or more.  I’ve told myself at least a 100 times I was going to start exercising and lose some weight and sometimes my new exercise plan and diet even lasted past lunch.  I found a Groupon and showed up at BareFit in early January this year.  I knew I needed some extra help if I was going to succeed.  BareFit has provided excellent training and an encouraging atmosphere.  I genuinely feel like the staff and members actually care if I show up for a workout session or not.  Curtis, the training guru, has made me a new man.  I have definitely bought into the program but what got me started is that the workout is completed in less than 30 minutes.  Most days we do somewhere between 14-18 minutes of actual exercise within 25-30 minutes.  I assumed I’d need to exercise much longer than 14-18 minutes a day to reach my target weight.  I’ve actually lost more than what I initially set as my goal.  I go to BareFit 4-5 times a week because I enjoy the comradery and variety that is offered.  The workout is never the same and Curtis is constantly inventing new exercises.  I would have never imagined just what a couple of old Frisbees, some old tires, a skate board, and a fire hose could do for you.  The whole culture and look of the place is very unintimidating.  Wholly sweatshirts are welcomed."
