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.
Independent, Sarcastic, Stubborn
Anything involving potatoes - they're my favourite food. I could talk about potatoes the way that Bubba talks about shrimp in Forrest Gump. Let's go with parmesan fries with garlic aioli- does that count as fancy?
My parents were just here in Vancouver for a holiday - it's been awesome hanging out and showing them around the city.
In a tiny little place called Becks, in the South Island of New Zealand - it's so small that most New Zealanders have no idea where it is. I was a farm kid, so I grew up surrounded by animals - dogs, cats, chickens, cows and (of course) sheep!
I took highland dancing lessons from the age of about 5 to 14 - imagine me leaping about to the bagpipes in a kilt and puffy white shirt and you'll get the picture. I still have a visceral reaction whenever I hear bagpipe music.
Ha, yes - I do go to a lot of concerts; I think I'm gonna need a hearing aid soon (worth it though).
Muse at Wembley Stadium in 2007 - the most epic concert I have ever seen. I wish I could see Daft Punk just once in my life - I'm still holding out hope that they'll tour again.
Small Victory Bakery on Homer Street. I don't know if it qualifies as a hidden gem coz it's always pretty packed but the coffee is fantastic and the scones with strawberry balsamic jam & clotted cream are #thebomb.
Florence Welch from Florence & the Machine. Her music is amazing, she dances to her own tune and I think we'd be besties.
Ah man, that's a tough one - it's like Sophie's Choice! If I absolutely had to pick one song, it would be All My Friends by LCD Soundsystem because it reminds me of my first Vancouver summer in '07. A group of friends rented this huge place on Dunbar and hosted some pretty epic house parties, and we played this song a lot. Plus it's an absolute banger of a tune.
L'Abattoir for a Gastown Swizzle or Bourbon Sour.
When eating a cupcake, separate the top part with the icing on it and flip it over to make a cupcake sandwich - it's way easier to eat and you get icing with every bite!
Ha, I actually don't mind them - there are worse exercises on my least favourite list - alternating V-ups and torture twisters spring to mind!
For me it's about challenging myself every day to be better than I was the day before, celebrating each success and remembering where I started from. Four years ago I signed up for the Tight Life Challenge on a whim after seeing a post on Instagram - I was so out of shape that I think I could only manage half a burpee and 2 very shaky push-ups! But at the end of those 3 weeks my fitness had improved (slightly!), I felt stronger and more confident and those feelings have continued to this day and had a positive effect on other areas of my life. It can be quite scary when you start out on the road to fitness but the Tight Club community has been super welcoming and supportive to me since day one, and I'm so thankful for that.
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.
