What better way to start the day than with this busy mom of two, who brings some serious dedication to the Monday Motivator table. Meet Kristin, our rockstar of the week. She's got a 5 year old and an 8 year old - who keep her busy beyond belief. You'll find her crushing it on the bikes and TRX before the sun (and kids) come up, almost every morning of the week. Excuses don't exist in Kristin's world - she gets it D.O.N.E.
1. Give us a quick background on yourself.
I am married with 2 amazing children, 5 and 8 years old. After a lengthy stint as a stay-at-home mom, my youngest started kindergarten this year and I started working at my kids' school. Between work, working out, and my kids' constant activities, there is always something going on, which works out great for me because i'm either insanely busy or bored out of my mind. There is no in-between. Sometimes I think I'm a 70-year-old woman at heart, considering what little free time I can find I love to fill with cooking, baking, and crocheting! Although my family and I lead and very active and healthy lifestyle, I was never able to stay super into working out until I was introduced to Rev. Everything about this place is motivating, from the workouts to the instructors!
2. Describe your best workout ever in just three words.
Hurts so good.
3. What song(s) are you obsessed with right now?
Don't Let Me Down - Chainsmokers
I Hate U, I Love U - Gnash
Cleopatra - The Lumineers
4. Is there a mantra that motivates you?
Fitness is therapy!
5. Any healthy habits to start/end your day?
5:45am spin and/or TRX is my favorite way to start the day. Getting up before 5am isn't always my favorite, but I always leave feeling better then when I walked in, and it puts me in a great frame of mind for the rest of the day. Plus, then I can end my day relaxing and having a drink and not feel bad!
6. Favorite move on the TRX?
Pistol squats! They are such a great challenge and any move that works balance and blasts your whole lower body is a win.
7. Favorite Buffalo Food Truck?
I will admit, I don't know many. I love to cook so I don't frequent food trucks, but I had Lloyd's once and it was great!
8.This or that:
Rosé or margaritas? If I had to pick, I guess margaritas. If you put a drink in my hand it will not go to waste, but I would definitely gravitate more towards vodka and bourbon!
Hip hop, Pop, Oldies or EDM for spinning? I love variety, just so long as that variety doesn't include any country music!
Tap backs or isolations? Isolations are my all time favorite spinning move. I can't get enough of them!
