The criteria and standards that we look for when our team puts in their nominations for Prototype of the month are Coachability, Caring, and Community and in our opinion, Lauren encompasses all three of those qualities handily. Congratulations Lauren!
1.) Share your experience at Prototype
My experience so far at prototype has been amazing. From day 1 everyone was so welcoming and helpful. Brian was so patient with me even though I was a little on the needy side for a new person (literally had no idea what I was doing!). Coming to class makes me feel accomplished and sets a good energy for the rest of my day. I can honestly say that I really look forward to coming to class and being challenged each day!
2.) What is your favorite part about being at Prototype?
I love the overall sense of community and the friends I have made. Again, everyone has been so friendly and welcoming not only to me but also my husband and kids!
3.) What are your hobbies and activities?
At this point in my life, I find much of my hobbies and activities are centered around the kids. Weekends are filled with driving around to hockey, football and soccer games. Needless to say, I’ve become a big sports fan! Skiing in the winter and trail walks with my family and our dogs are always fun. And of course long days on the beach with friends in the summer. Anything outside in the sunshine! I also enjoy painting/refinishing vintage and antique furniture.
4.) How has Prototype helped you or solved a problem?
A year and a half ago when I started coming to the gym I was in serious need of some “me time”. I found myself completely overwhelmed with 4 kids, a full time job, and my mother with Alzheimer’s had recently moved in with us. I needed a break, badly – something to keep my mental and physical well being in order. Taking class has become a much needed distraction and quite possibly one of my favorite hours of the day!
5.) What are you continuing fitness goals to this point?
I feel that I have come so far in the 18 months I have been a member. I’d like to continue to be committed to this one hour of the day to take care of myself with the overall goal of just staying healthy!
