Take a peek inside the Tight Club community, each week we’re checking in with one of our crew to learn what they get up to when they’re not slamming balls or crushing burpee challenges. These are the people that motivate you in class when sh!t gets real. From OG’s to newbies, here’s their inside scoop.
Describe yourself using three buzzwords.
Adventurous, Determined, Passionate
In this moment, what’s tight in your life?
To be honest, the last six months have been a roller coaster of emotions trying to figure out whats direction I should take my career. Is fitness the right industry for me or should I do something else? WHO AM I ?! After many ups and downs it is SO TIGHT to finally feel like I am in the right place. It’s pretty amazing to be able to teach at the most incredible studios and work with the best people. The network of people who have been supporting me and believing in me, shout out to all of you (you know who you are hint hint wink wink)
Tell me about where you grew up?
I grew up locally in the burbs. I lived in Newton, BC (the heart of surrey, oh yeahh!!) until I was about 9 years old. Then we moved to South Surrey which is about a 45 minute drive towards the border from Vancouver.
You’re such a cutie, but we’re pretty sure there’s a little rebel to you. Tell us about the first time you got drunk.
I definitely gave my parents the run of their lives when I was a teen (sorry mom, sorry dad!). There were so many “sleepovers” I attended I can’t quite put my finger on the first time I got drunk. I do have a very vivid memory of this one time when I was swigging vodka straight out the bottle on the beach and then out of nowhere the cops pulled up. I was about to pee my pants I was so terrified, ha! They made us line up along this log and pour out all of our hard earned bootlegged booze. It was such a buzzkill but actually also quite a thrill!
Ok, we really want to get to know you better. If your butt was a dessert what would it be ?
Haha! Hhhm. Oh! It would definitely be two big ass (pun intended) peanut butter cookies from Buddha-Full Cafe they are soooo good!!
What’s one hidden gem in Vancouver you’re willing to share with us and what should we get there?
Nicli Antica Pizza on East Cordova in Gastown is one of my firm favourites. You should have the Cavolo Nero e Funghi, it’s basically a cream sauce thin curst pizza with kale and mushrooms. Ah, SO delicious! If I ever go missing, this is where you’ll find me.
If you could power brunch with one person, who would it be?
Well if I could pick anyone, dead or alive it would for sure be the late Lee Alexander McQueen. I would love to pick his brilliant brain and get to know how he gets inspired to create such artistic genius. He’s a true fashion legend!
What’s your favourite song to dance to while getting ready?
Blonde – I Love You (feat. Melissa Steel) one of my friends Tobishan sent it to me this morning and I’m obsessed! I can’t take it off repeat, a serious mood booster have a listen!
Can’t wait to have a listen! And what should we watch tonight chilling on the couch?
Relax, unwind and Harvey Spector. I love him and oh yeah of course I love Suits, ha! It’s so easy to rewatch.
What is your number one life hack?
Electric toothbrushes and shoe horns are a daily necessity! These babies make mornings so much easier.
A little birdy just told me that it’s your birthday today! Tell us how you will be celebrating this new year around the sun.
Whoop whoop, 24 today! Well today I’m heading over to my parents place in Fort Langley for a delicious home cooked meal and bottomless wine on the patio, I’m very excited to spend some time with my family and relax a little. But in a couple of weeks my friends and I are renting a house in Whistler to REALLY celebrate.
And finally, what does the Tight Life mean to you?
The Tight Life to me means empowerment and truly finding the best version of yourself. It’s about acceptance, self love and community. We are all in this life together, through the good and the bad days so always do your best and try make someone else smile today.
