AlexFavorite local Hot Spots?

I’m a huge sucker for anything sweet, so Rocket Fizz Soda & Candy on University tops the charts.  You’ll also probably find me at the Wine Room or Philz. Because, I mean, wine and coffee; need I say more? You should also know that I like grocery shopping and perusing fruit way more than the normal human being. It’s a hobby. I just can’t seem to stay away from Whole Foods so I’m sure you’ll see me there post-class!

What do you do in your spare time?

When I’m not rocking out in Revolutions, I love to rock climb. I do a lot of indoor climbing down in Sunnyvale and it’s great cross-training for Revolutions. I  love the mental aspect of plotting my course, the sheer physicality of it, and I really resonate with the values I’ve found in the climbing community.  I try to get up to Yosemite to play on some of the bigger routes as much as possible.

Where do you find your uforia?

I find my uforia in other people’s positive energy. I’m a big believer in the power of good energy + good vibes. There is nothing more invigorating than spending time with a crew of people who are having fun, enjoying life and just being themselves. A great beat, good food, a teaspoon of sugar (in the form of salt water taffy, please and thank you), and a beautiful day outside always helps bring me that feeling of uforia!

What are your favorite pre/post workout snacks?

Despite my love for candy, if I could only eat one thing for the rest of my life it would be fruit and cheese. If I had my way, I would eat a carton of blueberries (and possibly a gluten free donut) before Revolutions, and then have a nice big plate of soft cheeses, nuts, apples, and bananas after class. A bowl of fruit with cream and honey over it always does the trick, too.

Favorite songs at the moment?

I come from the Midwest and have always had a special place in my heart for Country and Alternative. But lately, I’m really enjoying some of the more poppy + electronic beats. “Are You With Me” by Lost Frequencies and “Here for You” by Kygo are my current pump up songs, and I’m really enjoying jamming out to “2 Heads” by Coleman Hell and “Devil” by Cash Cash. Those, plus the queen T Swift and Pentatonix, are definitely my most listened to tracks right now.

Anything else you might want to share with our uforians?

I’m really excited to get to know the community and jam out with the amazing Rev crew!!
