How did you become part of the Poise Family?

I met Danielle last year at POUND instructor training and she told me she had a studio in Lynnfield.  I signed up for a few classes and I was hooked 

What is your favorite thing about Studio Poise?

I like that everyone is friendly and that it's a judgement free zone.  From the very 1st time I walked into SP I felt like I belonged.

Favorite move?

Arms of Death and anything with pulsing

"The miracle isn't that I finished.  The miracle is that I had the courage to start."

When you are not in the studio how do you sparkle?

I run marathons as a hobby and I set a goal for myself to run 30 full marathons in my 30's.  I have a love-hate relationship with running.  Crossing that finish line is one of the most amazing experiences.

If nothing was holding you back (time, money, etc) what would you do with your life?

I would definitely travel the world.  There are so many other cultures I would like to explore.  Maybe run the Great Wall in China, surf the North Shore in Oahu, go on a yoga retreat in Bali or just sit and relax in Santorini.
