I'm Sweat Obsessed
I used to HATE to exercise and only did so to ‘get in shape’. I’d bribe myself to go to the gym with new workout clothes, cool sneakers, martinis…
But, then I discovered that music is my magic. It may soothe the savage beast – but for me, music propels me into beast mode and pushes me beyond my perceived limitations.
I confess, now I am annoyingly sweat obsessed.
I’ve transitioned my long standing career as an ad agency exec to share my passion for fitness. I worked with lululemon as the LA Maven in their Brand / Community team, and now recently joined Quest Nutrition as their Experiential Marketing Director. I’ve completed certifications in yoga, CrossFit, and pilates. Basically nothing makes me happier than sharing the transformative powers of sweat!
I am an AMRAP addict. A namaste ninja. A running renegade. A soulful spinner. I am the friend who is always up for a hike, an adventure course, a new fitness class (and, of course, an occasional martini ;).
It still doesn’t come easy to me, hence, music is my constant coach and companion.
Just when I’m desperately ready to quit, convinced my tank is on empty…
- ‘til I collapse’ pumps through my earphones, leading to an extra ½ mile miracle
- ‘jungle’ remix commands me to slam out those last few elusive reps
- ‘take me to church’ arms me to win the uphill battle during spin class
While music is a crucial component to keep me motivated – equally as crucial for me during a workout is to have FUN with:
- community – inspiration by the efforts of those around me make quitting not an option
- mixing up my routine – so I ultimately don’t have a ‘routine’!
So, when Evan & Diane shared their RockSweat concept – I wanted in. Not just to be in class – I wanted in on the ‘inside’ team to support the actualization of this amazing beat blaring and sweat soaked experience – for me, for my friends, for my fellow fitness fiends.
I am RockSweat’s biggest evangelist – and I want to see you sweat and play #everydamnSaturday
See you at The Roxy!
