X-CORE is certainly not the only ones who love this family! This popular family caught our attention when we saw them occupy 30% of our Strength class one night. And then we got to know how wonderful they are. We appreciate Cat's infectious energy, David's sincerity, and Maria's sweet smile - we even get to see Edie (far left) quietly coloring while her family gets their workout on. It’s been so fun seeing each one of them get stronger. When we see them, we think...#familygoals
Maria: I love coming to X-CORE because I always feel super strong after. I really like doing it in the morning because it sets me up for a great day. X-CORE was the first exercise class that I actually liked and I love it more every time I go to class.
Mom: Because when you've had four babies (including twins) you need a little extra core work. The best change is finding a workout I can do with my teenagers!
What is your life advice to your kids?
Dad: Live a healthy lifestyle – all things in moderation. But the one they probably hear more often is “Its OK to be silly and have fun – don’t let other people dampen your spirit”. (we agree!)
What is your favorite and least favorite X-CORE move?
Maria: My favorite X-CORE move is definitely the plank to pike at the end of class. My least favorite is a panther especially when it comes right after holding a plank. (ugh, we hate/love this combo too)
Any bad Dad jokes?
Dad: Dad actually doesn’t do jokes well, prefer bad dumb movie quotes… but either way, they usually garner the same frowny reaction and more importantly, the complete embarrassment and eye rolling reaction!
Favorite restaurant in Oakland as a family?
Mom: Cosecha or Lin Jia!
What was your favorite family vacation?
Maria: My favorite family vacation was Puerto Rico because I love the beach!
Dad: Well there are many inspiring quotes that I come across constantly, but the one what I try to live by is from the Pope Francis…”Who am I to judge?”.
Favorite date place with David?
Mom: Le Charm (now Mathilde) in SF. We've been going there since we were dating in the 90s.
What is your day job?
Dad: By day I venture to San Francisco and lead a team of amazing professionals at PG&E; we work on the buying of ‘stuff’ for PG&E’s needs, whether services or materials. I have been with them for 10 years now.
Mom: I'm a partner at Fenwick & West, specializing in securities litigation.
What do you want to be when you grow up?
Maria: I haven't really decided what I want to do when I grow up but I am interested in being an anesthesiologist.
