ElizabethWhere were you born?
Little Rock, AR

What do you like to do in your free time?
I like to visit art galleries, go to concerts, and try new restaurants.

What is your favorite real raw product?
The chocolate protein truffles. It’s a good thing that I make them or else it might be hard to convince me that something so decadent could be good for me.

What is your favorite holiday?
Christmas. I love the energy, the Christmas lights, the annoying Christmas music, all of that. Plus you’ve got family and good food, what more could a girl ask for? I could do without the stressing over presents though, I’m old enough to realize what’s important now.

What can’t you live without?
Music and leggings.

Westbrook, Minnesota

What do you like to do in your free time?
I love early morning conversations over steaming cups of coffee, running or biking the Katy Trail (which I’m so lucky to live alongside), creating healthy recipes (I hope to write a cookbook one day), discovering local shops, writing, traveling and really anything that involves friends and/or fitness!

What is your favorite bodybar workout?
It’s a toss up between Reformer and Jump, depending on the day. Really, I think my favorite is one followed by the other!

Any holiday I can spend with my family. Living across the country, I am no longer able to take the time to go home for every single holiday. I’ve decided that is THE hardest part of growing up.

My S’well bottle
The Green Grocer’s roasted beet hummus
Coffee and sunshine, no matter how hot it is outside
…and let’s be real, lululemon

What can’t you live without? Aside from the people at home? Coffee, sunshine and good books.

Every Friday in February we’ll share updates on the studio-wide 20in28 Challenge! Here’s a look at Week 1.

bodybar Dallas
The Travis studio is abuzz with energy these days!  Over 60 people are going for it – the 20in28 Challenge that is!  Clients, staff and teachers alike are piling into the 75205 studio eager to take class.  Some have yet to miss a day while others are fretting over how they will get to the 20.  We’ve already got a few “doubles” up on the board – way to go ladies.  Never have we seen this many grown women so excited to receive a gold star for their accomplishments, us included!  7 days in, 21 to go…keep up the great work everyone!


bodybar TELOS

It has been quite the week at TELOS!  Many clients are taking TWO classes a day to get ahead of the game.  Congratulations to Nalini Samuel who is currently in first place with seven classes!  I love seeing our clients so motivated, strong and working towards their goals. I can’t wait to see what the next few weeks hold!


bodybar Plano

“May I have a green star, please?”

You should see the smiles on clients’ faces when it’s time to add a star to the chart! Classes at bodybar Plano are packed with athletes eager to finish the 20in28 Challenge. A total of 42 clients, teachers, and staff are going for the gold (and green) stickers this month. Some are doubling up on classes, or attending every day to make sure they complete the challenge. Very strategic, athletes!

Find out which foods will boost your metabolism, immunity, and make your skin glow. This bodybar Athlete is ready to share her nutrition knowledge and recipes! Bring a notepad, pen, and an open mind.
