Janet

We love this bad ass woman for crushing every single workout. Don't let her sweet nature fool you. Janet is a fierce warrior and will take whatever challenge we throw at her...super platform twister on her pinky...check! We admire her tenacity and resilience, and we always look forward to her smile when she walks through our doors.

Why X-CORE?

I love X-CORE because of the love they give to their community, their brilliant instructors, and because of the way they challenge me through each and every butt-kicking work out. I’ve honestly never felt stronger and I genuinely look forward to each session with them, because I know that I am doing something really positive for my health and happiness.

What’s your day job?

I get to support amazing middle school students as a school social worker for Oakland Unified School District.

Favorite restaurant / bar in Oakland?

Ohhh....that’s a tough one. I would have to say Vientian Cafe for one of my favorite restaurants, and Double Standard for favorite bar.

Favorite quote

Today is the first day of the rest of your life.

Holiday plans?

I’ll be holiday market hopping and eating my way through New York :)

What do you like to do for fun?

I personally love going to shows/concerts whenever I can, and Kenny (my partner) and I both enjoy checking out new restaurants, going to comedy shows, and spending time with good company and our dog, Smalls.

Favorite holiday treat you look forward to?

I really enjoy drinking a hot toddy during the holidays and love making it for my friends.

Favorite X-CORE move? Least favorite?

My favorite X-CORE move would have to be standing inner thighs (because I feel that move the most the next day), and my least favorite move is hands down, hamstring curl! One day I will be able to do that move without crying.
