How did you find Lagree Fitness and why does it resonate with you?
Almost 6 years ago, a studio opened up around the corner from my house. I tried one class figuring I had no excuse since I walked my dog by the place all the time, and immediately signed up for a 3 month unlimited that same day. Lagree Fitness hooked me because I knew that if I stuck with it I would feel really strong. It is the only workout I do where I can give it everything I have and not aggravate any injuries. It is so DIFFICULT but also really supportive. It's also really fun!
How would you describe your teaching style?
Transitions are always a top priority for me. I actually write down routines and tweak them for minimal rest so there is usually an element of cardio to my classes. I also want people to have a good time. I don't think working out should feel like a chore, it should empower and entertain. I try to be a cheerleader rather than a drillmaster but I will also let you know if I think you can push harder.
What is your favorite post workout nosh?
A client (Hi Rachael!) recommended Papa Steve's No Junk Raw Protein Bars to me and I love them! I like the vegan dark chocolate coconut and the vegan banana oat choco chip. I'm also obsessed with unsalted sunflower seeds right now.
If you were to give one workout tip to your clients, what would it be?
Be nice to yourself! You will not perform the same everyday due to many factors like sleep, hydration, what you ate the day before, etc so do your best and let the judgement go.
Work out with Lacey Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday mornings!
