Oh hey TORQUE babes! It’s a Wednesday, classes are back to normal, and only a few more days until the weekend! It doesn't get much better than that (I mean a day off where we could all be at the studio for hours upon hours would actually be a dream come true), so for now we are going to find the beauty in reality and roll with it! Not only is it a brand new day (and pretty and white outside), I have one of the most down to earth souls to share with you. These women crushes truly are one of my favorite things about the blog because it allows me to connect with women in this tribe. When this women crush was brought to my attention, I knew her name and her face, but I didn't know just how special she was. I knew she had become an avid “TORQUE goer” in the past year and had seen her in classes here and there, but I honestly didn't know that her soul and my soul were on the same wavelength. This chick just gets it. I knew from the first conversation I had with her that we shared the same realizations about TORQUE. From day one, we felt it. We accepted it. We embraced it. And overtime, it became apart of us. Meghan, you my dear have done all of the above and then some. You have silently, and probably without knowing shown people in this tribe what it means to eat, breathes and sleep TORQUE. Meghan, you are just a bright light that shines and shines, and shines some more. You have taken what you have learned inside the walls of this sanctuary and put it to use in all aspects of you life. It s evident that happiness, faith, and love shine through you. We are so happy that (like this morning) on that cold morning a year back you decided to get out of your car and give this little happy place a chance. We think it brought us one of the best souls on this earths and we are just so happy that you are ours!
To read more about Meghan and her love for TORQUE, keep reading! Stay warm TORQUE tribe, summer is out there somewhere! I promise warm times are coming! Love you all and miss you dearly, sending warm hugs!
Favorite TORQUE Memory:
Well, there’s probably 2. The first day I walked in…I was so scared and nervous!! I didn’t even know if I was going to get out of my car that day. When I eventually did, I was greeted by Summer who, of course, was so sweet. Her warmth and energy immediately made me feel at home, and now a year later, that’s exactly how I feel about this amazing place. It is a second home, even my daughters and husband love it here and that means so much to me.
My other favorite memory is when TORQUE turned 2. I remember being in that spin room, feeling such an amazing energy and love the whole time, and feeling incredibly thankful that I got out of my car that cold Saturday morning a year ago. I really am so grateful to be a part of this amazing tribe of women - even if I don’t know them all yet!
“Here’s to strong women: May we know them, may we be them, may we raise them.” This means so much to me for so many reasons. I think we all hope to be strong and surrounded by other women who empower us and lift us up. That is what makes TORQUE the amazing place it is. However, I am also trying to raise 3 little girls to be strong powerful women, and TORQUE is a place where they are surrounded by great examples of what that looks like. My oldest daughter, Madalyn, took her first Barre class with me last week and I loved seeing the pride in her eyes when she realized just what she could do and how strong she already is! She’s already asking to try spin next!
Definition of TORQUE:
A sanctuary. When I walk in the door after a long day at work (I am the girl always running through the front door at the very last minute, with work clothes on, trying to change in time for class!), and I hop on a bike and the music starts, I immediately forget the frustrations of the day, the email I forgot to send, the call I forgot to make, and I am able to reset myself. In the dark room, I am calm, happy, and fulfilled. It’s my second home, my saving grace, the place I find strength. It’s my sanctuary.
Favorite workout clothing brand:
I’m only a little over 5 feet tall, so it’s hard to find pants that fit! I love Old Navy because they make petite sizes, and I love Zella and Athleta. And of course, I LOVE my TORQUE swag!!
Favorite post workout snack:
I love an apple with sun butter, scrambled eggs, or a protein bar or shake.
