This month, we are shining the spotlight on Pat and Sharon. We’re so thankful for these ladies and their willingness to embrace our Zoom classes – a fun way they can work out together, even when they’re apart! We see their positive attitudes, commitment, and hard work in class, and this month, we are excited to recognize these sisters as our August Barre Stars!
Pat has taken close to 200 classes since starting with us almost 2 years ago, and Sharon just reached her 100 class milestone! Read on to learn more about them!
Q: What do you love most about AUXO Fitness?
A: The “barre-tenders” and their personalized support for our fitness goals! We also love the variety of options available and the supportive and caring atmosphere at AUXO. And right now, we love the virtual delivery options, which is helping us stay healthy and motivated, even though Sharon is 1,140 miles away from Gainesville!
Q: What advice would you give someone who struggles with consistency?
A: Set reasonable goals and a regular workout schedule. Find a place like AUXO that supports you and your goals and motivates you to participate in every class. When we walk through the door or connect via Zoom, even on days when we might be less motivated, being greeted by everyone, and especially the amazing instructors, helps reinforce our commitment to our health and well-being.
Q: What goal(s) are you currently working toward?
A: Maintaining our stamina and flexibility. We aspire to the goals in the book Younger Next Year, given both of us have crossed the 60+ finish line!
Q: How do you stay motivated (especially during this difficult time)?
A: Having classes available virtually keeps us motivated for all the reasons described above. We are so thankful for the AMAZING AUXO team for continuing to offer classes and for being so positive during difficult times. Our hours spent with each of the “barre-tenders” are something we look forward to and THEY keep us motivated. We love all the barre-tenders, but sister Emma, Erica, Sasha, and Deanna deserve special shout outs because they have been great motivators and supporters since we began our AUXO journeys!
Q: Which of AUXO’s Core Values most resonates with you?
A: All of them — strength, confidence, friendships, community, and family!
