Meet Meredith, Mint's Client of the Month
MINT: What is something that keeps you coming back to Mint?
Meredith: Honestly, the instructors are my absolute favorite humans on the planet. I love them all so much and I truly call them my friends. They have helped me get in the best shape of my life, and have also shown me how amazing pilates can be. They are so incredibly supportive and motivational that it would be very hard to ever go anywhere else.
MINT: What first got you interested in Pilates?
Meredith: I started working at Pinterest and I wanted to work out somewhere close to the office. I was also very curious about that weird looking thing called the reformer and thought it was worth giving it a shot! The first time I went to Mint, I couldn't believe how welcoming and nice everyone was! Between falling in love with pilates and my new found friends at Mint, I'm hooked. I now try to bring as many people as possible with me when I go so they can fall in love with it too!
MINT: Did you change your pilates schedule when you got engaged?
Meredith: I did! I was normally coming to Mint 2 times a week and i've upped it to 3-4 times a week and I couldn't be happier. I thought I would continue to go to try to lose more inches, but honestly... I started realizing how much better I felt on a daily basis by going more often. It's my release from a stressful day at work, and it's the beginning of each weekend for me. It's become a routine that I started to prep for my wedding day, and now it's just a part of my everyday life.
MINT: What is your favorite move while in class?
Meredith: Everyone knows I love mostly all of them, but I have to say sidelining with the strap hooked onto my foot is my favorite move. My second move would be Gabby's "Free Willy", but that's because I love that it's called Free Willy :)
Although sometimes I want to see if there's a way we could incorporate Carlie's sweet pup, Oona, into a routine. You know, lift the dog while doing crunches?
MINT: How do you think Pilates affected your life outside the studio?
Meredith: My life has changed dramatically since Pilates. I suffer from debilitating migraines and have noticed a major decrease in the amount of migraines I get each month. Additionally, I leave class focused, alert, and in the best mood ever. I get such a high from practicing pilates now. It's the best 50 minutes out of my day.
