Quick bio (how long have you been at Urban Vybe? Family life, other jobs, etc. ) I have been with Urban Vybe since December 2017! I have been married to my amazing husband Bryan almost 29 years and we have two great kids, a son Logan (27) who lives in Los Angeles and a daughter Riley (22) who lives in Austin. We have lived in several states because of Bryan’s job, but have made Texas home for 17 years now. I love to travel, hike and just be outside any chance I can get. I have worked several different types of jobs over the years from being a Surgical Assistant to an Orthodontic Assistant, to a Nanny. I am also a Certified Holistic Health Coach, so health and fitness have always been a big part of my life, which is why I love working at Urban Vybe!
Favorite class or workout/teacher? That would be like picking my favorite kid 🙂 I really truly love all the instructors!! They each one bring their own personality, motivation and style to their classes. As for what class I enjoy the most, I would have to say I really love doing Hatha Yoga. I am a person who has a hard time slowing down, so Hatha is a class I can do that makes me focus, slow down, stretch & breathe, which I really need.
What makes Urban Vybe different than other gyms/studios? Urban Vybe is like nothing I have ever seen before as far as gyms/studios go. It is a place where you feel welcome from the start. A safe place where you are loved and not judged by what phase in your fitness journey you are in. It truly is like a little family, where everyone just wants you to be your best self.
What’s your favorite cheat snack/food/drink? Chips & Vegan Queso at HG Supply along with a Michelada or Bloody Mary!
What’s currently your favorite local small business (can be anything – retail, restaurant, etc)? The Market at Lakeside! They are so kind, helpful and accommodating there! I highly recommend checking them out!
Best advice for someone new to Urban Vybe? Just show up! Honestly, that is the hardest part. Once you get in the door you will be loved on and encouraged to reach whatever goals you might have for yourself.
Favorite inspirational quote, phrase etc.?
“Be the one who nurtures and builds.
Be the one who has an understanding and forgiving heart.
Be the one who looks for the best in people.
Leave people better than you found them.”
Great words to live by. 🙂
