Age: 56

Hometown: Orange Beach (grew up in Texas)

Profession: Attorney

Favorite MOXIE workout: MOXIE Ride

When did you first start taking classes at MOXIE?

About 2 years ago

What did you find most challenging in the beginning?

Keeping up with the cardio!  My first few Ride classes were rough.

What was the first change you noticed once you started working out at MOXIE regularly?

More energy.

Three words that describe how you feel after a sweaty workout?

Great (and stinky! )

How do you motivate when you just don’t wanna?

I try to make working out a part of my weekly schedule.  It’s time I set aside to work on myself.  Every workout is different, and every day is different.

Favorite way to reward yourself after reaching a fitness goal?

I don’t think I really reward myself with anything.  It makes me feel great about myself – which is reward enough!

What would you like to accomplish fitness-wise in the next 12 months?

I need to drop some of the weight I have put on, and want to tone up a bunch!  I need to eat better also.
