Each month the team at YAX selects a star athlete. This athlete truly embodies our core values with perseverance and accountability at the forefront.
Our June Athlete of the Month is Christine! We’d like to give a shout out to Christine for consistently bringing her hard work, dedication, and enthusiasm into the studio every week.
How long have you been practicing/training at Yoga Athletex?
My husband and I joined in January of this year.
What benefits have you received since training at Yoga Athletex?
My cardio and stamina have improved so much. I remember in the beginning, I could barely walk out the door after class!
What is your sport/activity outside of the studio?
Indoor/beach volleyball and tennis. I didn’t play in college, but I love that both of these sports really transfer well into adulthood. I ended up meeting my husband through volleyball!
What is your favorite class at Yoga Athletex and why?
It’s hard to pick one! I genuinely love all the classes — the combination of HIIT and yoga. I’ve always resisted yoga for some reason, but now I can’t get enough!
Any advice for new people trying out the studio?
Try all the classes, even if it seems intimidating at first. You’ll get the hang of it. And even if you don’t feel like working out on a particular day, Just Do It! *Nike swoosh*
