I was never one to enjoy the confines of a gym. I would rather be fishing or hiking; however, I saw a personal need to focus on weight training, and "ugh" was my initial thought. Lysandra has managed to change my perception on the gym setting in many ways. I appreciate her ability to be motivating and inspiring in all of her classes. I could come to a class exhausted, and yet the environment she creates is a natural pick-me-up. Above that, I really appreciate her pushing me to my physical limits because I am always pleasantly surprised, and in turn, grateful. Thank you for not only the motivation, but really the empowerment.
