Member Spotlight: Lexi
Lexi Miles is the founder of WAXON Waxbar, and Ultimate Spin Instructor.
How did your Ultimate journey begin?
Ultimate happens to be located right between my home and my work so 3+ years ago I decided to try out a spin class. This quickly spiraled into a membership and personal training sessions with Vlad and now teaching spin! Who would have thought walking up a flight of stairs would have taken me on this journey?!
What’s the most rewarding part of crushing a workout at the gym?
Every time I leave I feel like I’ve pushed myself to work harder mentally and physically. I never leave feeling like I’ve had an average workout. Ultimate has shown me a gear I didn’t even know I had.
What have you learned about balancing health and wellness with you career?
Working out truly keeps me grounded. It doesn’t matter what is going on in my day, the hour I have at Ultimate to focus on another area outside of work allows me to clear my mind makes me that much more productive day to day.
What keeps you coming through our doors?
From the friendly front desk team that greets you to the incredibly talented and fit instructors to the variety of challenging classes, it’s hard to find a reason not to come back.
Well of course I love spin! If I’m looking for a good sweat, it’s my go-to. But I love to switch it up week to week. If I’m looking to challenge my body I’ll head to an Sam’s Conditioning Class or Row. If I’m looking to strengthen, stabilize and stretch I’ll head to Victoria or Paula’s Halo or Conditioning/TRX Class. I also recently started Reformer with Vic and I’m hooked!
Go-to/favourite meal post workout?
Depending on the day and workout, it is a toss up between a Freshii salad and a NutBar Smoothie.
What’s in your gym bag?
Spin shoes, running shoes, and WAXON BodyShot – Hydrating Coconut Body Oil. It contains arnica, which really helps relieve sore muscles post-workout.
Any advice to those who haven’t been to Ultimate?
What are you waiting for?
What keeps you coming back?
The people (Vlad + Paula are just the BEST), the classes, the results and most recently becoming an Ultimate Spin Instructor! I’m so grateful that Ultimate encouraged me to pursue a goal of mine, to become a Spin Instructor. It has been an item on my bucket list for a long time and I’m incredibly thankful for their support.
