Crystal Thomson-Dick T

Q: DESCRIBE YOUR CLASS STYLE? 
A: BANGIN!!! Also, Motivating, Challenging, Technical & Personal. 

Q: WHAT'S YOUR DAY JOB?
A: I'm mostly a stay-at-home mom to my two amazing kids. I also work for Newad Media part-time. In my LBK (life before kids), I was a Psychological Assistant where I administered psychological testing on clients. 

Q: WHAT'S YOUR WHY?
A:  My why is my family. The opportunity to grow, build strength and share my love of movement with every client I see at the studio and every member of the BBS community that I interact with, is another small part of what drives me to do what I do. When I sweat, push myself a little harder, and share my enthusiasm and excitement for barre and the process of doing something for yourself, to better yourself; I become a better person in all areas of my life. To strive to be the best mother, wife, daughter and friend that I can be is my main focus, and the reason I get out of bed every morning.

"Life is too short to worry about things you cannot change. Let it go, and focus on the things you can change. Remember that it's all a part of the journey and the lesson."

Q: WHAT OTHER TYPES OF FITNESS / SPORTS DO YOU ENJOY? 
A: Pilates and dance cardio (I still secretly do Jane Fonda workouts)! 

Q: WHAT'S YOUR WHY?
A:  To see women set free from any unhealthy relationships they may have towards food and their body, and help them walk in full health - physically, emotionally and spiritually.

Q: WHAT DOES BEING A PART OF THE BBS TRIBE MEAN TO YOU?
A: I have always had the desire to help women love the skin they're in, and care for their body through movement. Being a part of the BBS Tribe allows me to show people that fitness can, and should be, fun. Being a part of the BBS Tribe is like being a part of a family for me, where I get to go hang out with a room full of my best friends every time I teach or take class.

"Don't waste your time comparing yourself to others; it only sets you back."

Brittany Lange L

Q: WHAT'S YOUR WHY? 
A: I am constantly trying to challenge myself in new ways - always learning, always growing. Seeking that challenge gets me out of bed in the morning and is what I bring to my classes. I am always trying to push myself to that next level - you with me? ;) 

Q: WHAT DOES BEING A PART OF THE BBS TRIBE MEAN TO YOU?
A: Everything. Being a part of this community is so special - no matter what kind of day I am having I always leave the studio feeling better than when I walked through the doors. Sometimes we are the ones motivating and other times we are there to receive that push, that's the beauty of it. It's simple - we RISE together! <3 

Q: YOUR PERSONALITY IN 3 WORDS OR LESS?
A:  Perfectionist. Ambitious. Confident.

"Don't be afraid to push past the limits of your comfort zone - this is how you learn and grow."

Amber Brodziak B

Q: WHAT MADE YOU FALL IN LOVE WITH BARRE? 
A: The power of the movement and the effectiveness of the exercise. For years prior, I worked out with different methods and exercises, and none have transformed my body, or been as effective as barre. 

Q: DESCRIBE YOUR CLASS STYLE?
A: Sweaty, intense, loud, fun, purposeful.

Q: WHAT'S ONE THING YOU WISH YOU COULD TELL YOUR YOUNGER SELF?
A:  I wish so much that I could have realized how much people are just truly worried and consumed with themselves. I worried so much (and sometimes still do) what others think of me. Fear of other's judgements has stopped me from doing so many things that I wish I could have just pushed through. As I have gotten older, I have realized that everyone has their own story and 'stuff'; and we are just all in the same boat often consumed with insecurity and fear. I have felt so much better working at letting go what others think and pursuing what has felt good and right for me.

Q: WHAT'S ONE THING YOU WISH YOU COULD TELL YOUR YOUNGER SELF?
A: Your body is beautiful, only you need to know this and truly believe it. <3 

Q: WHAT'S YOUR DAY JOB?
A:  I sew and design clothes for my own Slow Fashion Label.

The original, like a classic tote that complements every look, this one hour workout will tone and challenge all levels of fitness. This is a class you can't go wrong with.
