Have you had the pleasure of meeting the Jetties yet? If not, we’d love to introduce you to this dynamic duo, who are our February Members of the Month!
How long have you been members at Loco?
Josh: Early 2019
Christina: Started with Dumbell & Diapers class in October 2019
What is your favorite thing about being a member at Loco?
The community, the friendly competition, and the free coffee!
What group fitness offerings do you typically participate in at Loco? Do you have a favorite?
Both of us mainly attend the CrossFit classes but we also both dabble in bootcamp, depending on what works best for our schedules and how much sleep we got the night before (side effect of having a toddler!) Josh loves the CrossFit classes because he enjoys lifting heavy, while Christina really enjoys the yoga flow classes!
How would you describe the community at Loco?
It’s a big part of our Charleston family! We’ve made so many friends during our time with Loco! The entire community is very embracing and uplifting!
What advice do you have for someone who is intimidated by group fitness?
It’s understandable to be intimidated by group fitness, but Loco is a different type of gym. Existing members really embrace the new members and make them feel like a part of the family immediately.
Favorite music to sweat to?
Upbeat EDM or Trap Music.
Least favorite music to sweat to?
Country or whatever Kristen plays.
Least favorite movement/workout?
Is there a member of the LocoFam that inspires and motivates you to be better? Feel free to give them a shout out!
Josh: Olin or Jason – They have great lifting form.
Christina: Donna or Mollie – So cool to see such beasting mommas!
Is there a member of the LocoFam that needs to know you are coming for them? Feel free to put them on notice!
Josh: Bryan – He knows why.
Favorite post-workout meal?
Of course the free coffee (only after the noon class), but also a protein shake, an apple sauce pouch, or banana -or- anything from Choices if we are too lazy to cook.
What fitness-related goals do you have for 2021?
We both just want to set a good example for our daughter, Winter! We want fitness to be something she enjoys as well. Josh also wants to have a walking handstand and three strict pull-ups!
Describe your athletic abilities in five words or less.
In Josh’s words, “if a lasagna noodle worked out for 1 year”. We have no idea what this means, and we’re pretty sure it is also more than five words.
Give us your background story.
Christina grew up Chesapeake, VA and Josh grew up in Hilton Head, SC. We met in 2012 in Norfolk, VA while Josh was in the Navy. We moved down to Charleston in 2014 so he could go to College of Charleston. We have a 1.5 year old daughter named Winter (we love Game of Thrones) and three dogs (a sheltie and two corgis). Christina is an environmental engineer for a small consulting business, and Josh is a computer scientist who works on Marine Corp emergency response systems. Our favorite things to do are travel, watch sports (baseball and F1), and attend music festivals!
Coffee or tea?
Josh: Energy Drink
Cake or pie?
Christina loves cake! Josh does not like sweets, but that just means more for Christina! (What a match made in heaven!)
Pool or ocean?
Pool! Bonus points for a diving board.
Indoors or outdoors?
Burgers or pizza?
Josh and Christina have been working so hard at the gym, and we are really proud to have them as members of our LocoFam! Interested in meeting more of our awesome members while you work on your health and fitness? Book a free intro today to see what we are all about!
