Knock Knock!! It’s Women Crush Wednesday! Is the TORQIE Tribe listening! Happy Wednesday babes, it is so good to be back! From this point on we are going to crush on our strong gals every other week! Don’t worry, we aren’t going anywhere! But this week. WOW, this week do I have a strong lady for you! Sad to say I have not had the pleasure in meeting her (it will 10000% change!!) BUT, from what I have heard she is one of the strongest, spunkiest, fun gals in this tribe. Vickie Rosone, you radiate strength. Although she is little, she is mighty and has walked some of the hardest paths this life has to offer But all struggles lead to beautiful destinations. Not only does this describe Vickie mentally and emotionally, but also physically. Going through tough times has led her to this amazing mentality she carries, but also to the place we all call home. Vickie, thank you. For being an inspiration. For being strong. For being YOU. TORQUE is blessed to know you and to have you as an example of strength, love, and beauty every single day!!
To read more about Vickie and her love for TORQUE, keep reading! As always, sending love and happy thoughts to you all, wherever you may be!
Favorite TORQUE memory:
My favorite TORQUE memory is the opening of TORQUE 1.0! I was so excited to be back in the studio after some time away during that summer and taking all of the classes again with my favorite instructors. It's exciting to think about all of the people I've met because of TORQUE. All of the people who were friends of friends, that I sort of knew but really got to know in class and out socially.
Favorite Quote and what it means to you:
I have two, "It is what it is" and "Everything happens for a reason." I'm a true believer in dealing with what you are given in life and making the best of a situation. If you are thrown a curve ball that takes you off the journey you thought you'd follow, figure out how to move past that and make the situation your new normal and find your new journey. I lost my first daughter as a baby at 9 months old which was beyond tragic for my husband and I at the time and still is, but we have been so blessed with two other children who are really the most wonderful kids. I believe that everything happens for a reason, whether it is big or small. When one door closes, another opens. It may not be clear at the time, but will be down the road.
Your definition of TORQUE:
When I started working out consistently about 5 years ago (and met Summer), I gained a confidence I didn't have previously. I was never an athlete when I was in high school or college. TORQUE is a place that I can always go to and feel confident in myself and my abilities. I am the strongest I have ever been in my whole life and TORQUE always feels like home.
Favorite workout clothing brand:
I don't discriminate when it comes to workout clothes. Anyone that knows me, knows I love bright colors and prints. But I'd have to say Athleta and Old Navy are my favs. My Athleta chaturanga stripe capris are my fav! I have them in almost every color!
Favorite post workout snack:
KIND Peanut Butter or Chocolate granola or The Suburban Soapbox's Peanut Butter monster balls! I love making my own fruit smoothies also.
Top 5 -10 songs:
There are so many songs that I love that the instructors play in class, too many to mention here, and most of them I don't know the names or the artists (haha). But here are a few of my classic, all time favorites:
1) Confident- Demi Lovato
2) Best Friend- Sofi Tucker
3) Mobbin- Grandtheft
4) My Kingdom- Evangeline
5) Lean On- Major Lazer & DJ Snake
6) I Lived- OneRepublic
7) The Edge of Glory- Lady Gaga
Vickie’s TORQUE Schedule:
You can find me on the bike, in TRX, or at the barre. My schedule varies week to week because of work and my kids' activities, but I'd say my favorite classes are Christine's Thursday morning TRX, Summer's Friday morning TRX/Barre, Michelle's spin, Julie's barre and Summer's spin. I'm also an every now and then Nooner with Brooke!
