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?
I’ve got to say that friends and family are pretty tight. I’m surrounded by really inspiring people – they’re doing big things with big hearts and curious minds. I really admire them all.
Anything I can catch a beat with…Beyoncés on ice, down-squats, etc. They’re those moves that when everyone nails them it looks like choreography.
Something people might not know about you?
Probably not much…sometimes I can be a bit of an over-sharer. It just means I like you and I’m comfortable :p
What’s your favourite workout song?
Oh man, there’s so many. In the Field House, I really like anything hip hop, but when I’m out on the road running, Gas Pedal (Motez Edit) by Sage the Gemini really brings back race memories and helps me really pick up the pace.
What’s your spirit animal and why?
Definitely a Goldendoodle:
They are cheerful, trustworthy, gentle, affectionate, smart and highly trainable animals that have a keen desire to please. These are social dogs that thrive in the presence of people and crumble if they are not given enough time, attention and affection. Goldendoodles can get into mischief and develop behavioral problems if they are left alone for long periods of time. They require moderate to high amounts of exercise.
Who would be your celebrity best friend?
I have no idea…I chatted with Joseph Gordon-Levitt about ayahuasca once.
Favourite way to procrastinate?
I doesn’t happen often, but bake when I’m bored…then I have to give it away.
What was the last thing you read?
Probably some kind of market commentary. I work for a wealth management firm in marketing and communications. I regularly “translate” updates from our in-house portfolio managers into client-friendly publications.
If you could go anywhere tomorrow, where would you go?
Africa! The hubs and I try to take one adventure and one sun-destination trip per year. Africa is at the top of our adventure list.
What does the tight life mean to you?
For me, the Tight Life is all about balance and doing things that make you feel good, with people that make you smile. My work hard/play hard ratio is a nice mix of sweat & kale vs. wine & chill.
What is your fitness goal?
Growing up, I never “worked out” outside of a dance studio but I would tell my mom that I wanted to be one of those super old ladies that I would see running every day. She told me, “well you’re not going to be one of those old ladies that runs every day, if you’re not a young lady that runs every day;” So simple, but true. A few marathons later, I’ve become a runner… not quite every day though. My fitness goal is to keep it tight into my geriatric years.
Do you have any pre or post workout rituals?
Pre-workout I’m usually just trying to get myself out of bed…I lay out my gear and a water bottle the night before so there’s no excuses when the alarm goes off. Post-workout I’m either jetting off to the office, or heading to the market to pick up fresh ingredients for dinner.
How do you treat yourself?
I love booking myself in for a massage or a facial, but generally, I keep rewards simple…and frequent. After a busy week I will let myself sleep in on the weekends or indulge in an afternoon nap. That’s pure luxury to me.
Fall is coming, what's your favourite part?
I love the fall because 1. My birthday and 2. I always find my love for running again. After months of sweating it out in the blazing sun, I love the feeling of running on a crispy fall morning.

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.
