When did you start coming to CoreFit? 2013 ish...?
Why did you start coming to CoreFit? Cindi John :)
Who is your greatest fitspiration and why? Jennifer Lawrence, she is all about being strong and feminine. I think young girls need to know you can be both and I appreciate her projecting that image.
What is your next fitness goal? Kick 40 square in the kisser and rock a new level of fitness in the next decade of my life.
Favorite workout song? Anything with a good beat and some bass.
When you are in the heat of the workout and feel like quitting, you think… I want to show my daughter what it means to be strong and healthy.
What has been your biggest accomplishment at CoreFit so far? To keep coming despite my crazy schedule and being a single parent.
What is your biggest dietary weakness? Whiskey and cheese, not necessarily together.
Favorite part about CoreFit? The team workouts and support, the group vibe does help when the WOD is brutal.
If you could sit down to lunch with anyone in the world, dead or alive, who would you choose to have lunch with and why?
I'd probably elect to have a beer with my Mom and Pops right around the age of 40. They give me advice now but I'd love to see their current day perspective of raising two kids, working parents, and staying focused on their marriage in the heat of it all.
How has coming to CoreFit influenced the rest of your life? I truly try to practice what I preach to my patients. Working out helps manage my stress, keep me strong so I can keep up with my baby girl and gives me a perspective of alternative ways to stay healthy, which I relay to my patients.
What is a motto or saying that you live your life by? Transcend the bullshit. -Harold Blaze
What are your main hobbies outside of CoreFit? Travel and anything that has to do with sunshine and a beach.
Favorite workout/exercise? Least favorite? I love the sparing with the coaches, sleigh pushes (i dont even know if that's what they are called, lol) and box jumps. Least favorite is gator pulls.
If you could have all the money in the world, how would you spend your days? Traveling to different countries and meeting with local healers to see how they practice medicine.
Favorite Restaurant? Hogwash.
What has been your top memory at CoreFit to date? Working out on my due date and seeing Liv enjoying her Corefit kids class.
