RISER OF THE MONTH - SANDI CRANNY
Rise is my workout place of choice because it is locally owned and not a big box chain.
What motivates you?
I am motivated to work out so I can go out. We are empty nesters so we have lots of opportunity to go out to dinners, events, etc... As long as I get up and workout in the morning, I do not feel as guilty about going out.
What are your short and long-term workout goals?
My short-term workout goal is to try and make it through an entire barre series without having to put my heels down. My long-term workout goal is to keep attending classes 5 days a week.
What specifically do you like about Rise?
I like that I have not become bored with Rise even though I have been coming for many years. The instructors are not satisfied doing the same class over and over. They consistently change the format and add new challenges to keep me coming back for more.
What Rise class gets you feeling the most mentally and physically amped?
Either Kettlebell, Lifted or Cardio Strength. I like the loud music and feeling like you need to quit after about 45 minutes of class.
What's your biggest challenge in getting to class?
The guilt of taking an hour to myself when I can see lots of housework, paperwork and family stuff that needs to be done.
What's your athletic background?
In high school I played tennis. Currently, I play travel platform tennis.
What's your best healthy living tip?
Get your workout done in the morning and eat healthy during the day because you never know what can happen around dinnertime.
