September Member of the Month: Lauren

Sassy. Classy. A Bit Bad Assy!

Congratulations to our September Member of the Month – Lauren!

We are thrilled to honor Lauren as our motivating and inspiring Member of the Month! Lauren is always a blast to have in class, even if she’s feeling particularly salty that day! LOL. 🙂 She’s been really focused the past few months and it’s awesome to see her get stronger every day!

Keep working for your goals Lauren!

We asked Lauren a few questions about her training experience and here’s what she had to say:

What’s your favorite workout or exercise?  Box jumps! I was terrified of them for the longest time and had to psych myself up to actually attempt them on anything more than a few inches high, but one day I just convinced myself that I could jump up on the 20” box and not fall on my face…and I did it!  Now I look forward to them.
What motivates you to keep consistent with your workouts? Honestly, my mental health suffers if I don’t come in for a workout; I feel nervous and agitated and don’t sleep well. Also, I work from home so it gets me out of the house!
What did your fitness journey look like before coming to Dragonfly? Lol forever. Um…it looked like a half-hearted 30 minutes on a treadmill once every two months.  So: non-existent.
What personal record or accomplishment are you most proud of? I really surprised myself with the recent 30-second one-arm planks. You go into something like that thinking “there’s no way in hell I’ll be able to make it all the way through” and then 30 seconds later, you’ve made it all the way through!  It’s something I’ve found since coming back to DFT: just pick up the heavier weight, lower the incline on your pushups, or try the one-arm plank…you will more likely than not surprise yourself with what you’re actually capable of.
Bonus  – How do you think your Dragonfly coaches would describe you?  I think Coach Missy nailed this one: “a little bit salty.”  But I hope also goofy and motivated make the short list. (We’d also say fun, motivated and focused!)
Thank you Lauren for being a part of Dragonfly! Dragonfly’s Member of the Month is selected by our coaches and receives an assortment of supplements, and $50 toward their membership or merchandise.
