How does one become Member of the Month? By embodying the Kanna ideals of Learning, Working Hard, and Having Fun. By contributing to the community and supporting others in and out of the workout. By being open to coaching and improving oneself for the sake of being better, not to β€œwin” the workout. By just generally being a good person and having a positive attitude. And a lot more, but you get the idea!
