WTEW: Teacher Series- Amy

Pure Barre teachers

Last week, we learned all about Amanda. We’ll take a look at Amy this week! She has just made the team for the Dallas Cowboys Rhythm & Blue Dancers. I am so proud of her. Go Amy! Nutrition and fitness are super important for dancers so let’s take a look at some of her tips/tricks…

  1. What is your favorite fruit?  Strawberries.
  2. What is your favorite vegetable? Asparagus.
  3. What is your favorite pre or post workout snack or beverage? Chocolate milk (low fat, of course!)
  4. What is your top eating healthy tip or trick? I only eat until I am 80% full. I indulge! Just never to the point I feel like I am about to explode. It takes about 20 minutes for your brain to realize your stomach is actually full.
  5. Tell me a random/fun fact about you. I’ve sung the National Anthem twice; once before my dance recital and the other at an Allen Americans hockey game.
  6. If you had a motto or a quote you like to live by, what would it be? “Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.”
  7. How long have you been teaching Pure Barre and what is your favorite thing about teaching? I’ve been teaching for almost 3 years. My favorite thing about teaching is when I see a client in the “zone” and truly focused on accomplishing their fitness goals, and that I get to help them get there!
  8. Favorite Pure Barre move? Back dancing.
What a good motto she has! I couldn’t agree more. Discomfort can be the catalyst for change and change is good. Getting past your comfort zone can help you achieve success for whatever goal you have. I hope her motto can motivate you in some area of your life this week.
Next week we will take a look at Kari. Stay tuned!
