Meet Member: Christina Taylor
1. Where are you originally from?
Born: Omaha, NE. Grew up: Las, Vegas. College: Colorado
2. When did you move to Myrtle Beach?
August 3rd, 2006 just 3 days after my wedding. It happen to be the HOTTEST week of the year, so we were told, and I cried for a week straight! I was NOT used to the humidity and neither was my hair.
3. How long have you been a member of Finish Strong?
Since the beginning... Beth Massey and Colette Ramsey shared about this amazing woman who started teaching bootcamps and I had to try. Haven't looked back since.
4. What made you decide to join FS?
When I started, it was only Molly teaching class, every class! She was so creative and never repeated a workout. In the beginning we had to bring our own 5 lb. weights and a towel. We worked hard and I was having so much fun, even at 5:30am (that was the time back then), because we were outside and I didn't have my kids! Peace and quiet start to my day? Sign me up. :)
5. Where did you go on vacation this summer?
Jekyll Island, GA and Jackson Hole, WY.
6. Do you have any pets?
Yes! Sadie, our golden retriever. She's the BEST dog you'll ever meet!
7. What is your favorite quote?
“If God brings you to it, He'll bring you through it!”
“I am fearfully and wonderfully made,” - Psalm 139:14
“You can get everything in life you want if you will just help enough other people get what they want.” - Zig Ziglar
8. What's your idea of a fun night out?
Funny how my answer to this has incredibly changed after having children! I do love having family night, eating out or getting ice cream with the kids, BUT I also love the time alone with Jory with NO interruptions-- dinner and a nice walk or coffee date which doesn't happen nearly enough... hint, hint!
9. What's a favorite workout/challenge/event that you've done at FS?
My favorite workout are those cardio-intense ones... Doug Shaw Stadium! Counting down the days until it reopens!!!
10. What's your favorite song to workout to?
I'm an old-school music lover even though I don't know any of the artists or song titles... I love ALL the music Jason plays (Here Comes the Hotstepper station) and watching Bob shake his tail feather for all to see while attempting to sing the lyrics at the top of his lungs!
11. Where's your favorite restaurant in Myrtle Beach?
Sea Captains, Outback, Travinia's
12. What do you like most about Finish Strong?
That there will never be a certain image we have to maintain in our physique! There's NEVER judgment and the philosophy is to come as you are and jump right in. We are all different levels with different goals and if desired we can work along side a trainer to help us reach whatever our goal is. I appreciate so much this philosophy that Molly has incorporated and exemplifies daily.
13. If you had to which would you choose: 50 burpees or 100 warrior sit ups?
50 burpees, no push-up! lol
14. How do you relax after a long day?
Depends on what "long" represents... pretty much a nice glass of pinot noir or an italian margarita, curled up on the couch watching a movie!
15. Do you have any hobbies?
Hobbies? Who has those when you're a mother? My hobbies include being a taxi driver, tutor, playmate, dishwasher, maid, cook and working my Thirty-One Gifts business somewhere in between!
