Interviewing into the Real World: Drew

Quote of the day: “Self-care is not an expense, it’s an investment.” I’m back with another interview! Today I am interviewing a very special person, Drew. Drew is very into health and fitness and has some great stories and tips to share! Let’s dive right into it. 1. Introduce Yourself (school, major, job, etc.) Hi! My name is Drew, and I’m a senior attending University of Oregon. I’m studying Human Physiology with a minor in Chemistry. If all goes according to plan I’ll have my degree in a few months… I didn’t work throughout college (except during the summer), but over this past winter term I…

MNTStudio Pilates Review

Quote of the Day: “If it burns, you’re getting closer.” About a month or so ago I posted a review on CorePower and described my experience with it. If I’m being completely honest, I have not gone back since then because I didn’t love it enough to spend the money. Today, I’m sharing my thoughts on a different type of exercise that I’ve been trying: pilates. So what exactly is pilates? Is it similar to yoga? Will I see results? Is it really easy? These were all questions I had prior to trying it out because I genuinely had no clue what it was and how it…

My Relationship with Exercise

Quote of the Day: “It’s your road and your road alone. Others may walk it with you, but no one can walk it for you.” -Rumi I decided that for each blog post, I want to incorporate a “Quote of the Day”. They may or may not have anything to do with what I’ll be talking about, but they will always be relevant to my what is going on in my life. Today I wanted to discuss my relationship with exercise because boy has that been an interesting journey. I know this is going to be a long post, so let’s just get into it. My…

CorePower Review

In 2020, I strive to explore new ways to workout and be active. The gym is great, but sometimes I just get a little bored of doing the same exercises and need to switch it up. CorePower Yoga caught my attention just at the right time! CorePower Yoga is located throughout the United States. If you live near a big city, there’s bound to be a CorePower near by. The great thing about this place is that it offers a free week trial for new members. I really appreciate workout studios that offer a free week rather than just one free class especially if the…

Workout With My Boyfriend

I have never met anyone who likes going to the gym as much as my boyfriend, Drew. He seriously NEVER misses a day even when he has a bunch of schoolwork to do. I think it’s really awesome how motivated he is to stay fit and he really motivates me to go to the gym everyday too…mainly because I feel guilty if he goes to workout and I stay at home and watch Netflix or something. Awhile ago I asked him how he stays motivated to workout everyday. He said: “I feel better when I get exercise and to prove to myself I have the…
