This month, we are shining the spotlight on our BarreBack, Amy, and her hard work at AUXO Fitness! She has taken close to 300 classes since starting with us in August 2016! Amy has positively impacted the lives of the participants in our studio and beyond! Get to know Amy better below!
One woman who inspires me is: My sister, Toni. She is the total embodiment of strength, courage, creativity, adventure, love, and living life to the fullest. She is continually learning and exploring, pushing the boundaries of her comfort zone. She loves her family fiercely. She exudes confidence and beauty. She is the most intelligent person I know (even though she’d also forget her head if it weren’t attached tee hee). She is spirited and passionate – she is laughter and home.
My weirdest phobia is: When someone turns their eyelids inside out or bunches up their elbow skin. I can’t really explain it, but I just can’t handle it. (I know this is not an issue for most people, but I teach middle school, so I maaaaay be exposed to these things more often than one ever should- ha!)
My favorite song to work out to is: A tie between Trevor Hall’s “Brand New Day” and “Unity.”
One thing I can’t stop buying at AUXO is: Sticky socks!
A place I would love to visit is: Australia/New Zealand. Also Greece.
My favorite Barre move is: Pretzels, bridges, and any glute series with an open attitude.
If I could have one superpower, it would be: To breathe underwater. Then I could dive with the whale sharks, dolphins, manta rays and mermaids all day long!
When I need to de-stress, I: Go to AUXO! Exercise always helps me to de-stress, and at AUXO I look forward to the ongoing challenge of the workouts, as well as connecting with the barre babes that have become like family.
My favorite aspect of AUXO is: EVERYTHING! The variety of barre workouts that are low impact, fun, and always challenging, (and truly something I can do continue to do my entire life) in combination with the community culture and supportive, friendly atmosphere in the studio. I love the special events and series, like the baby-wearing classes, retreats to Casa Micanopy, Bad Girlz at the Barre, Kickboxing, and SO MUCH MORE! I feel like I am always growing with AUXO; it’s become like a second home, and I always look forward to it!
