IT'S A WEDNESDAY! FINALLY! Women Crushes are BACK!! Now that the holidays are over and the hustle and bustle is starting to settle we can start featuring the strong, beautiful, and hardworking women that make up this tribe. Some of them are new faces, some of them are OGs, and some of them, like this gorgeous babe, our members of our very own team. No matter what your role is at the studio, you are so very loved and appreciated. It just so happens that this gal is a gem. Aly became part of the team a little while back and has rocked it since day one. She is the definition of hard work. She somehow manages to balance her master's program, work, spin, a social life, and family time. Say WHAT?? Seriously, she is the real deal. I know that being a young, motivated person Aly is someone I look up to. Because no matter when you catch her, it seems like you are all that matters. Not the paper that is due, or the bill that has to be paid, or the this or the that, she gives you her undivided attention, and that is something that I truly admire about her. I have not been able to take her class yet (fomo is real) but I have heard nothing but amazing things. Especially her inspos!!! I must get in there to get my dose of Aly! I am so happy that Aly found her way to TORQUE and made it apart of her life. I know in the time she has been here, she has made a huge impact on so many. Aly, keep it up, girlfriend. Keep dreaming, keep working, keep pushing on. You have the world's BEST tribe alongside you. We cannot wait to watch you achieve every goal, big and small, and have no fear, we will be there every step of the way!
To read more about Aly and her love for TORQUE, keep reading! As always, sending all my love and positivity to you all wherever you may be!
Favorite TORQUE memory:
My favorite TORQUE memory would probably be the 2 year anniversary. I remember waking up and being so excited for the day. I walked into the studio and immediately started smiling. I could just FEEL all of the love, all of the positivity, all of the encouragement and I could tell everyone was feeling the same way. It was really powerful. The studio was jam packed all day, and the team teach was insaneeee! Every bike accounted for, people dancing and singing all over the room. It was a very special moment and it made me realize how unbelievably lucky I am to be a part of something so much bigger than me.
Favorite quote and what it means to you
“You are exactly where you are meant to be” I heard this little saying in yoga a few years ago and it really stuck with me. I feel like it always brings me back down to earth. No matter what is happening in life, good or bad, you are exactly where you are meant to be. The things that we experience are all there for a reason, and they always teach us something. It’s how we react to these experiences and the decisions that we make that dictate where we end up. If you choose one way and it ends up not working out, it’s okay, you are exactly where you are meant to be. Now you have learned something and you have the opportunity to change your direction for a more positive outcome. The things that you want in life cannot be rushed, and this little saying helps me remember that everything I want is coming to me, I just need to have patience and trust that eventually I will get there.
Your definition of TORQUE:
To me, TORQUE is so much more than a place where I can workout. It’s a movement, a feeling, a FORCE! It's about being a part of something that's so much bigger than you are. It's a place you go to push yourself so far outside of your comfort zone that it brings you to tears because you're so proud of yourself. It's being surrounded by people who only lift you up, never put you down. Everyone shares one common goal. Everyone supports each other. And you can just feel that magic every time you’re there. It’s my happy place. I find so much comfort in knowing that no matter what happens in my life, no matter how I am feeling or what I am going through, I can walk through those doors and immediately feel better. I feel like it’s one giant family that just keeps getting bigger, and I truly am so unbelievably grateful to be a part of it.
