Meet David and Ivy, two delightful FHC members! We got a chance to chat with them about their experience completing our June Class Bingo Challenge.
(The goal was to take one of each of the group exercise classes we offer during the month of June to win a free month of gym membership. Spoiler alert, they both won!)
What were your favorite classes and why? Do you think you'll be back?
My favorite classes this month were boxing and ab lab. Boxing was such a fun way to work out; getting to be focused and aggressive and angry was super fun and different. Ab lab was difficult but attainable and nicely specific on that one part of the body.
Who was an instructor that you really enjoyed?
Three of my favorite instructors were Tyler Hutchinson, Neal Haley, and Lo Shdo. Tyler has a refreshing and straightforward motivational style that really appealed to me in Ab Lab. Neal was fun, encouraging and had great exercises in Bootcamp. And Lo is friendly, relatable but also badass and pushes you in her classes.
Was there a class you took that you weren't expecting to enjoy, but did?
Personally, I was not excited about barre. I didn't know anything about it and thought it was basically just ballet, which made me pretty nervous. But it turned out to be one of my favorite classes. It's focus on specific movements and small-yet-difficult adjustments were at once meditative and also demanding. Far from being just ballet or overly-feminine, it was graceful and contemplative and generally great.
