Connie DeClue

Owner

Kinder and Recreational Instructor

 

Connie joined the ACROS family over 5 years ago as a Kinder Instructor. This was a leap for her, since 40 hours of her week was spent as an Accountant in Princeton, IN. She continues to work as an Accountant, but her love grew for the gym as well. Throughout the 5 years, she has stepped into many roles and ultimately became owner of ACROS in January 2021. As owner, she still continues to teach Kinder and Recreational classes nightly. ACROS is a family, which Connie is very proud to be a part of and grow with.
