The Grand Wailea
"Don't give up on me, people!" "I know you can do this- if I can do it, so can you!" "Rest when you die-or when class is over-but not now!"
If you're attending one of Nancy Lawrence's fitness classes-especially group cycle- you'll hear these battle cries and more as you challenge yourself to finish strong and powerfully. At the end of class-be it Group Cycle, Boot Camp, Ultimate Abs, Urban Rebound, Reebok Coreboard, or Kickboxing, you will feel successful, energized, and accomplished!
Her career began in the days of legwarmers, striped leotards, and High Impact Aerobics. It all started in a popular chain of health clubs back in the 80's- selling memberships, teaching aerobics, managing the staff and facilities. Having been an athlete most of her life, the health club was home to her. The energy, making new friends, leading all sorts of people to improve their health, lifestyle, and well-being felt natural and easy.
"Working out should be FUN! If you're not having fun, you won't come back! Everyone likes to laugh- it's not enough anymore to just instruct, direct, teach. When you look out and people are smiling, laughing, enjoying themselves while they're sweating- that's where change begins!" -
She believes in and teaches with intensity, creativity, connection, and group energy. People are a powerful source of energy when it's well-directed- from yoga to boot camp. To inspire means you must first BELIEVE in what you do- then others will happily follow! Her unique style inspires and motivates her students to give 100%- and then a little bit more...
