Member of the Month – February
What grit. What determination our February member of the month has. Keri Payne is one of our Swink Sweat ladies, and her fearless attitude and infectious energy have definitely caught our eye lately. So many people modify movements they’re scared of, but not Keri. She dives in head first to every workout we throw at her. She may look at you like you’re crazy and throw you a side eye, but then she puts her head down and puts the work in! She is impressive on so many levels, and funny as hell! If you don’t know her, you better get to know her. You will thank us later. Congratulations, strong lady! Keep up the good work!
coming to Swink last May. I’d been working on my diet for 5 months or so and had a lot of success, but really wanted to be in shape too. I’ll be 45 this month and I feel like this is the age where people either decide to stay active and make fitness a priority, or they just sit on the couch and slowly fade away. Use it or lose it! So that’s where Swink comes in. I’m sure all my Facebook friends are sick of hearing me talk about my workouts but everyone at Swink is so inspiring and encouraging. We all have those days where we lack motivation but all you have to do is drag yourself in the door and they will inspire you. I’m in the best shape of my life and that’s due to my fellow Swinkers as much it is the work I’ve put in.
What is your favorite think about Swink?
The people. Hands down. Even when I get yelled at for using too heavy of a weight on pillow talks.
What’s your favorite movement/workout?
All the heavy lifting. In Sweat we don’t do as much as Fundamentals but I looooove it. Muscles are sexy y’all!
What’s your least favorite?
Box jumps. These are my nemesis! If anyone has any tips I’d love to hear them!
What’s your favorite
Roasted squash and zucchini. Sometimes I add fish, broccoli or green beans. If you want to be super lazy get the precut packages in the produce department.
What’s your favorite cheat meal?
Chips and salsa. Always.
What advice would you give to someone new to Swink?
Don’t be intimidated by how everyone seems so good at everything. We all have days where we feel like we’re going to throw up or die. I’m still almost always a little sore somewhere. I’m not gonna say it really ever gets easy, but you can do it and just know we are all there with you.
