How has Core helped you to Contour your life and what does your Lagree body enable you to do?
Core Contour really makes me look forward to traveling North (from Miami) to be with this terrific group of people we have here that have really impressed me. Core has contoured my life in that regard, in that I look forward to coming to see an enthusiastic, and loyal crowd. It’s my home. The love that I have for the studio and the clients we have here make me very proud.
Lagree has helped me in many physical regards. My most recent hobby is archery. It’s critical in archery to actually be very slow and deliberate on your draw in the way that you engage you muscles, particularly in the sequence in which the muscles become engaged. Lagree has helped me in knowing how to best execute movement, especially movement that needs to be very slow deliberate for accuracy in archery.
What is your favorite activity or hobby off the Megaformer?
I’ve concocted a cool game on the beach with the Aerobie, which is an intense and fun version of frisbee. It’s a great way to use sprint drills without actually doing drills trails. I love to watch it fly with the time release because the timing of a throw has to be perfect.
What inspired you to become a Core Contour trainer?
It was my love of the method, and the opportunity to reach people and have a meaningful impact on their lives. Coming from a health care background many years ago, I liked the aspect of helping people in a positive way the most. I would consider being a fitness instructor as still being within the healthcare continuum, but now on the preventative side of things.
Favorite type of music?
I don’t have a favorite type! In class, anything that has a good beat first and foremost, and something that’s going to move your soul and your spirit as well as your feet. As far as personal taste, if I were deserted on an island and could only choose one band to listen to, I would choose The Beatles or The Art of Noise. Both are very experimental and not genre specific. I’m just a fan of sound!
Favorite motivational quote?
“Move to live, live to move.” -Christopher
During my time in health care, I saw that the common thread among those who were the least healthy was a sedentary lifestyle. “To have energy, you must make energy.” When you move, you create energy, blood is flowing, muscles are firing, and you’re promoting growth in muscle tissue and bone. Studies have shown that people who are living a sedentary lifestyle are actually harming themselves
