Niamh McGuigan – May 2015

Niamh McGuigan – May 2015


How long have you been part of the BluCru?

I’ve been with Bluprint since they opened in 2014. I started working out at the previous incarnation of Bluprint in May of 2011.

What is your biggest accomplishment at Bluprint?

I’m pretty pleased with running a 6:03 mile in 2015. I hope I can beat that this year.

What keeps you coming back to Bluprint Fitness?

I really, really like the programming – it’s smart, hard, and deliberate, with an emphasis on improving over the long term. I love having the rowing option with great rowing coaches. And I love the people – going to Bluprint feels like stopping by your neighborhood bar, except that you bond over the workouts instead of over a beer.

What is your favorite thing to do at BP Fitness?

Wall balls!!!!!!

What would you tell someone considering joining?

It’s worth every penny. You’ll get really strong, and you’ll make a bunch of new friends.

What do you do for fun?

After getting into indoor rowing via Crossfit, I joined an actual rowing team that rows on the Chicago River. That takes up most of the time that I don’t spend at Bluprint.

Niamh shows so much drive in all her workouts, always striving to get stronger and faster. She pushes fellow athletes with her pace and is no stranger to giving 100+%. Niamh listens to her body and continually works on her flexibility to fine tune her patterns; which shows in her movements. She is a pleasure to have in the gym and is very encouraging of others.
