I’m Maxine! I’ve been taking classes and enjoying the Carbon Valley Recreation Center for the last 18 months or so. I walked in intrigued with all the activities my kids can enjoy but was also looking for a healthy distraction. I studied dance and psychology in the Chicagoland area which originally brought me out to Colorado 10 years ago to further my studies in somatic psychology. The idea of mind, body connectivity is not foreign to me as I am passionate about living a happy healthy life. It’s been over a year since my first Bodypump class. After getting over the initial challenge of timing and coordination, I was instantly hooked. Today I feel off if I miss a class. If you would’ve told me 3 years ago that I now spend six days a week visiting the local Rec Center tethered to the variety of full body workout classes, I would of maybe giggled as this environment is rather new to me. A trail head or studio setting felt more natural. No doubt, I battled intimidation, but feel more confident in myself now than when I first began classes. The ultimate goal of my time working out is to free my mind of clutter, it just so happens my body has gained strength. I’m so fortunate to be a part of such a positive community here at the Rec Center, I’m inspired by everyone who comes in to work on keeping their body and mind healthy! Without question, I feel stronger, healthier, and happier walking out of those recreation center doors.
