Molly studied Nutrition at the University of Texas and continued her passion for health and wellness by becoming a trainer and group fitness instructor, joining us at iGnite just over two years ago. Known for her upbeat attitude, care for others and genuine interest in the lives of those that take her classes, Molly is a wonderful asset to the iGnite leadership team. Her classes are always challenging yet able to be modified for all fitness levels, and leave participants walking away with a smile on their faces — having not only enjoyed a great workout, but also having spent time with a group of friends that share their lives throughout class.
Now, let’s get to know Molly a little bit better…
1. What motivates you to stay healthy?
I’ve been active all my life, and I never want to get to a place where I can’t do something just because I’m unhealthy. Life is more fun when you are healthy!
2. What is your favorite summer memory?
When I was little, we always went to our family’s lakehouse every summer for a week or two. Nothing mattered except for having fun, playing with family and friends, and being outdoors. It was the best time!
3. What is your favorite way to stay active?
iGniting of course! But lately I’ve also loved trying out new yoga studios. I never did yoga consistently before last year in August, and now I can’t get enough!
4. What is the best piece of advice you’ve been given and from who?
I have two of these, and they are both from my dad. The first is “good things come to those who wait” and the second is “you catch more flies with honey than vinegar.”
5. Your favorite exercise to incorporate into your classes?
Lately my favorite exercise has been any variation of side planks — either dips or reach-throughs.
6. What is your dream summer vacation spot?
The lakehouse! It’s on Lake Sam Rayburn. I love skiing, riding on the boat, digging my feet deep in the sand, playing with my younger cousins, and going for walks in the park. I guess I’m a kid at heart 🙂
7. Something people may not know about you?
I don’t have a sense of smell.
8. Who is your biggest inspiration/role model and why?
My dad — he has the best common sense of anyone I’ve ever met, and I look up to how wise he is. He makes everything so simple. And he is SO loving!
9. Your favorite “splurge” food?
Chips and queso!
