"I hate it but I have to exercise for my mind more than anything and I’m 36 and have four children I need the energy exercise gives...Exercise is key for the mind and body."
"Barre has been the only exercise that I have been able to stick with for the last 3 years. I have tried everything with terrible results. I love the feeling I get after I finish a class - energized without the sweat ... I do SOAR for that!!!"
"I wouldn't be able to achieve all the things I was trying to achieve in my life if I wasn't at the peak of fitness.
“I think that most people think that I exercise everyday for the results. To try to have a six-pack, to try and gain muscle tone, to try to look ripped and look lean. But let me tell you something that that can’t be farther from the truth…with what we get thrown at us each and everyday with life, with what knocks us down with work, with what knocks us down with commuting to work, with what knocks us down with our kids, with what knocks us with all the activities are kids are in, with what else knocks us down with all the other stressors in life that in fact we are faced every single day and the time we live everything is constantly on the go…I exercise every single day so that I’m less stressed. I exercise every single day so I feel more confident. I exercise every single day so that I have more energy throughout the day and I’m not crashing in the middle of the morning or crashing in the middle of the afternoon or feel completely exhausted, strung out, and stressed out every single day. I exercise so I could be the best father and the best husband and the best version of myself by living a healthy, fulfilling life.”
“I had lost my connection, literally, to the earth...Now, the earth sent me this surge of energy, like lightning. It felt like it was saying, ‘Where have you been for the last 10 years? Welcome home.’”
"I feel kind to my body neither under or overworking it and I’m not hating the workouts themselves wishing them to be over quickly. Instead they calm me down and are good for me mentally as well. I feel like my life can be very stressful sometimes so I need my workouts not to be draining me or put any more stress on my mind or body. Instead, I want them to be calming and strengthening and giving me energy. This is just what works for me not putting any pressure on me to reach fitness goals or get any type of results other than feeling good and taking care of myself.”
"Movement is my way of getting energy to challenge myself in all aspects of life. I can´t imagine a life without some kind of movement, both physical and mental!"
