1. Tell us a little bit about your fitness journey:
I ran cross-country/track in high school and college and just fell in love with the sport! Distance running is my favorite thing - I ran my first marathon last year, which was fun but pretty challenging.
I still love to run but it can be hard going at it alone when you're used to being on a team for so many years. When I go to Rev I feel like I'm back on a team - even if it is just for 60 minutes!

My fitness journey is always ongoing. I love to try new workouts to see what my body can handle. I am also still trying to conquer the push-up tap-back move (#spinninggoals). Overall I just love
doing anything that's active, energetic, and inspires me to keep pushing and burn those calories so I can indulge in my daily dark chocolate addiction!

2. Best workout ever in three words? 
Run, Spin, TRX

3. What song(s) are you currently jammin' to?
Powerful - Ellie Goulding, Major Lazor, & Tarrus Riley .... and any song by Britney Spears!

4. Do you have a workout mantra that helps keep you going?
"You can do anything for 30 seconds!!" (as I want to crumble to the floor during a pike)

5. Two things I can't start my day without:
Coffee and saying hello to my pup Louie!

6. What's the healthiest thing in your fridge?
Apples!

7. What's the most recent vacation you took?
Looking forward to my upcoming Spring Break vacation in Florida!

8. Choose this or that:
Spin or TRX? TRX
AM or PM workouts? I will workout anytime!
Spring or Summer? Summer

Good morning! This week's cheerful motivator, Beth, is all about Buffalo. She works hard at the studio and around town, volunteering regularly at the Buffalo Zoo and running her very own Buffalo-centric blog, Just A Blonde In Buffalo. We don't know where she gets the energy to do it all - we're in awe of her drive and passion every time we see her (which is a lot, thankfully!). Read up about Beth in the Q&A below.

1. Tell us a little bit about your fitness journey.
Fitness has always been a part of my life since I was little. Growing up I was in softball and dance and throughout high school I was in track and tennis. As I’ve gotten older I would have up and down moments where I would be a frequent gym goer and then veer off. Over the last 5 years or so I have made it a part of my daily routine to work out and lead a healthy lifestyle. Three years ago I started participating in half marathons and my next goal is to complete a full marathon. I like trying new fitness classes - it helps keep my workouts fresh and I don't get bored.

2. Describe your BWE (best workout ever) in just three words.
White Water Rafting  - if I did that everyday my arms would look phenomenal.

3. What song are you obsessed with right now?
Rihanna – Work
Brett Eldridge – Drunk on Your Love
Whitney Houston – My Love is Your Love

4. Is there a mantra that motivates you?
“Keep your chin up kid and you’ll go far.” – my Dad
“Breathe.” – Rachel, during TRX training
“Make it count.”

5. What are two things you just can't start your day without?
Water and coffee.

6. What's the healthiest thing in your fridge right now?
Iceberg lettuce and carrots.

7. What was the last vacation you took?
A weekend getaway to NYC.

8. This or that? Choose one.
TRX or Spin: Both! Colleen’s AM spin class wakes me up and helps get my day started and Rachel’s TRX training sessions have made me stronger and more confident. I love both for different reasons!
AM workouts or PM workouts: Definitely AM – “the early bird gets the worm.”
Jeans or Yoga Pants: Jeans.

Monday Motivator: Meet Marc

Meet Marc, the first Monday Motivator of the month of March. (Hows that for some alliteration?!) He somehow manages to find time to get his Rev on amidst his crazy schedule managing his family business, Picasso's Pizza. We suspect that all of the delicious pizza he must indulge in from time to time has something to do with his dedication to finding time for a workout. You can catch Marc working hard in Brandon's Saturday morning classes. (He once worked so hard that he spun a pedal off of a bike!) And we bet he'll start popping up for Rev@Jada classes since his Transit Road Picasso's is right down the street!
