We are continuously impressed with her hard work, dedication, and consistency, and we are so excited to see her continue to thrive at AUXO Fitness! Read Kreshelle's Q&A below to learn more about her.
Q: Where are you from, and how long have you been in Gainesville?
A: I’m from Gainesville and I’ve lived here all my life!
Q: What's your favorite Barre-themed shirt?
A: They’re all awesome but I have to say, “barre keeps the cray at bay.” I relate to it so much!
Q: Tell us something fun about yourself/what you do when you're not at AUXO?
A: I’m a homeschooling mom who is also a slave to my kids’ sports event schedules. I’ve got no time for much else.
Q: Was your first Barre class what you expected? Why or why not?
A: My first barre class exceeded my expectations! I approached it like a nerd, I researched it! I heard so much great stuff about how good it was. But it’s been better than I thought it would be. I think I was most pleasantly surprised by the incredibly welcoming environment.
Q: Why did you decide to continue with AUXO Fitness after your free week by investing in an unlimited membership?
A: I fell in love with the exercise and the culture/vibe. It made me feel like I had something to be a part of or belong to.
Q: What makes this workout different from other exercises you have experienced?
A: This workout is different from other exercises because it’s low impact, but super challenging. I think what makes it different is the mental challenge. The exercise doesn’t get “harder”, YOU have to push yourself to find your “edge”.
Q: What is your favorite Barre move?
A: Bridges! Why? Because I want to look like J-Lo!
Q: What results have you noticed after doing Barre/BodyFlow/yoga consistently?
A: Soooo many! Decreased anxiety, strengthening, flexibility, improved posture, confidence, and mental stamina.
Q: Have you experienced any benefits from Barre that have affected you not just physically, but mentally, too?
A: The mental game [of barre] I engage in, to push myself, is translating into other areas of my life as well.
Q: What keeps you motivated to continue coming to Barre?
A: I keep coming to barre because of the way I feel, the friendly faces, the encouraging environment, and the FUN.
Q: Is there anything you would like to share with potential new clients about your experience at AUXO Fitness? Any helpful tips for those who are considering trying Barre, but are nervous?
A: I think the best part [of Barre] is that you’re surrounded by real people of all ages, sizes, and fitness levels who just want to challenge themselves and be the best they can be. I don’t worry about “failing”. I know that everyone here is just trying to do the same thing I am; up their game. And, when I came, I was VERY out of shape. I was able to feel ok about that and celebrate my growth.
