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.
What is Tight in your life?
2016 has been a big year of changes. And changes can be scary (especially for someone like me who's always planning), but sometimes they're really tight. Change right now means a lot of tightness to come.
It's cliche, but I'd say squats. Some heavy squats. Or Michael's signature "upside down bum" because how can you not love a name like that?
Something people might not know about you?
I'm a notorious over-sharer, so there's not much people don't know. But I do love any and all bad TV. And I mean bad TV — like "Extreme Couponers" and "Keeping Up With the Kardashians".
What’s your favourite workout song?
Basically anything by Ja Rule.
What animal are you most like and why?
Someone recently said if I were an animal, I'd be a sea otter. They had no reasoning to back it up, but otters are pretty cute, they hold hands with their friends, and they have a little pocket in their fur to store treasures and snacks, so there are definitely similarities.
Who would be your celebrity best friend?
I think Chrissy Teigen and I would get along pretty well. We'd make food together, send ridiculous snaps, and I mean, hang with John Legend too. I'd say we're a lot alike in that we love food and dogs and jokes. I'd say we're not alike in that she's a supermodel. But I've got dreams.
Favourite way to procrastinate?
Getting stuck in YouTube wormholes of British beauty bloggers. Or cooking a very extravagant meal for one.
What was the last thing you read?
A little publication some friends put together called Within Pages. It's the perfect mix of art and words.
If you could go anywhere tomorrow, where would you go?
I'd like to think that I'd just go to the airport and hop on a flight to anywhere cheap and warm. But realistically, I'm not that spontaneous and I think I'd head to Peru. I keep hearing rumours that Machu Picchu will eventually be closed to travellers and I'd like to experience it before that happens—especially after Googling the name for correct spelling and realizing it has a Google Review of 4.7 stars out of 5 (who reviews places like that?!).
What does the tight life mean to you?
It means doing things I love; the things that make me feel good, surrounded by good people. This ultimately means balance because I love working out as much as I love cheese.
What is your fitness goal?
To be strong, comfortable, and able to bike up the Ontario St. hill without dying.
Do you have any pre or post workout rituals?
I like to make the 25 minute walk from my place to Tight Club to get in the zone. After a particularly sweaty class, I'm partial to grabbing a beer with pals.
How do you treat yourself?
I'd say my life is fairly full of treats as I've adopted a very Aziz Ansari as Tom Haverford from "Parks and Recreation" mentality. But a real nice latte on a Saturday morning with the paper is a weekly treat for me.
Any holiday/winter plans that you are excited about?
Lots of baking, reorganizing, and crafting. Probably some bad TV too. That doesn't sound too exciting, but I'm saving my big travel plans for 2017.

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.
A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!
Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
