Favorite part of a Fierce class?
Ahh, what isn’t my favorite part? I love that it’s a quick 45-minute work out but works every part of your body. I love the different classes and different teachers because it’s something new every time you walk into class. I love the relationships the teachers have with us and how they push us to our limits every time.
Why you chose Fierce as your go-to workout?
I have never been a big fan of working out. I tried everything from CrossFit, Yoga, to High-Intensity Interval training but could never really get into anything. Then I found fierce and fell in love. It has changed my body in so many different ways and not even just my body, I have such a better mindset after leaving a fierce workout. I have been a member now for a little over a year, and I can't wait to keep watching my body transform and become stronger.
What do you love most about the Fierce studio/community?
I would say my favorite thing about fierce is the small classes. It is really an amazing feeling when the teachers know you by name, and what your bodies can and can't do. With the small classes, the teachers get to focus on you, and you don’t feel like just a number or a member you actually feel like you are part of the community. I also love the hours and locations. I take the noon class Tuesday- Friday at the wash park location with a group of coworkers (best friends), and it is such a relief to have a studio that offers classes at that time that’s only 5 min away from work. We honestly can’t remember what we did before at lunch when we didn’t have fierce down the street.
How do you live a Fierce life?
When I think about living a fierce life I do my best to live by the 5 core values of fierce; Excellence, Positivity, Challenge, Inspire, & Community. I think the two biggest core values out of these 5 that help me live a fierce life are Positivity and Challenge. No matter what the situation is, I try to always have a positive outlook. I believe that everything happens for a reason good or bad and you may not be able to see it at the time but staying positive and looking forward is what I try to accomplish every day. As for the challenge aspect, everyone runs into one at some point or the other but what I do when this happens is force myself through it, never giving up or letting anyone tell me I can't do it. I stay strong in my mind and body living a very fierce life.
