If you visit FLow Monday-Saturday, it is most likely that you will see Joanna in the studio. A member for two years, she is one of our most dedicated Barre and Pilates students! A self described "naturally anxious" person she found the classes at FLow have helped her to relieve some of her tension.
"I feel so much better mentally and physically when I leave the studio", we tend to agree.
We recently sat down with Ms. Joanna to get a better view of what makes FLow her studio of choice and found out a few not so apparent things about one of our favorite members. Come along as we get to know this months Member Spotlight: Joanna M.
FLow: What are some of your favorite things about FLow?
Joanna: Before finding FLow, I had tried almost every workout studio on the North Shore but was never able to find one that made me want to spend time there. A lot of the other studios were intimidating or stuffy. After my first class at FLow I was hooked. Every single instructor is so nice and encouraging and I love all of the other members.
The nice part is that no two classes are the same because each instructor adds their own spin to it. I especially love coming to the beautiful new studio - its just the perfect space to unwind and sweat out the stress from the day.
FLow: What classes will our members find you in?
Joanna: I typically take the Barre and Pilates classes, and will throw in a Yoga class here and there when I feel like a need some extra stretch or stress relief. I always struggled to find a workout I enjoyed. When I took my first Barre class at FLow, I fell in love instantly. I feel energized and strong after class and that makes it easy to stay consistent with my workouts.
FLow: What's your favorite song to jam out to?
Joanna: I love anything country but right now I am obsessed with The Middle by Zed and Maren Morris.
FLow: When you are not Barre and Pilates-ing, what are you up to?
Joanna: I am getting married in October so a lot of my free time is spent wedding planning. When I am not doing that I love to bake and make pretty tasty chocolate chip cookies ( although I don't bake often because I don't want the food in the house after!).
FLow: Congrats on your up and coming nuptials! Yay! What an exciting time. As a side note, we'd like to commission you for those chocolate chip cookies please! Not kidding. We'll do anything for chocolate. :)
FLow: Tell us one interesting fact about yourself that other members may not know.
Joanna: I hate salad! It's one of the few veggies I won't eat. The texture weirds me out.
FLow: Ok, one last question. You’re a new addition to the crayon box. What color would you be and why?
Joanna: Pinot Noir Red... because I've never turned down a class of Pinot.
So folks, if you love Pinot, Barre, Pilates, Chocolate Chip Cookies but have a disregard for salad, then say Hello to Joanna next time you are in the studio. And Joanna, thank you so much for taking the time to answer our questions and be such an incredible member. We love that you are a part of our community!! <3
