Member Spotlight: Amanda Blooflat

Amanda joined our studio earlier this year and it’s been such a pleasure to have her in our classes. She fits in so well and her dedication really shows up every time she comes. We are so excited to introduce her to you all and help you get to know a little more about her!

Tell us a little about yourself. Name, background, family, etc…

My husband and I are both from the north (Minnesota and Michigan, respectively) but I love Texas and am happy to call this home. We have a 15-month-old son, William, and 13 year-old daughter, Ashlyn.

What do you like to do in your free time?

I find I don’t have much of that lately, but I love to read, and I love traveling. My husband and I will have been married two years in January, and because of COVID, pregnancy, etc. we’ve never been on a “real” vacation together, so hopefully we’ll be able to do more traveling in the future. We’re also looking forward to doing more hiking now that the weather is cooler.

What’s your favorite ice cream flavor? 🙂

Rocky Road or Chocolate Peanut Butter.

Do you have an interesting fact you’d like to share?

After growing up in Michigan, I lived in Virginia, Washington DC, Manhattan, and Austin before finding our forever home here.

What brought you to Vessel Pilates and how did it stand out to you?

I was very active before my pregnancy, but hardly worked out at all during it or in the months following. It was a little daunting to be 40-something postpartum and feeling out of shape, but I really wanted to get back into it. I found Vessel online and it stood out to me because of its advertisement for postpartum classes. I came to check it out and loved its friendly vibe! It felt like the right community for me. I also like the variety of classes, including barre, jump, mat Pilates, strength, yoga, etc., as well as the small class size.

How long have you been going to Vessel?

Since May of this year.

How often do you attend classes?

I would like to attend 4-5 days a week if my work schedule allows it.

If you were to describe our studio to someone who had never heard of it, what would you say?

Friendly, fun, and uplifting!
