Make way for our newest instructor, Madi! This mom of two has moves on the bike like you wouldn’t believe and rocks abs that would give Gigi Hadid a run for her money. Now this rockstar’s taking the Dallas Domes by storm, and we’ve got 22 Questions With Madi to help you get to know her a little better before you saddle up!
Describe your teaching style
Upbeat, intense, but fun, sweat sesh. 45 minutes of dancing it out on the bike and letting loose!
What’s your mantra?
“Taking care of yourself is part of taking care of others”-as a mom of two I learned that it is important to be “selfish” and take time for yourself. When I started going to ZYN22, I became a better version of myself. I’m a better mother and wife because I take my 45 minutes a day to refresh physically and mentally in the dome.
Favorite move on the bike (or barre)?
Hands down a tap back push, all day!!!
How would your friends describe you in 3 words?
Selfless, personable, and if you ask my husband, expensive…
What’s your favorite color?
If you could eat ONE meal every day for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Omg cheeseburger and french fries, which I already do eat almost daily.
Biggest guilty pleasure?
Everything and anything Bravo and E! aka REALITY TV. I live for it. Can’t stop, won’t stop. #realhousewives
What’s the last book you read?
Fancy Nancy 🙂 (I have a 2.5 year old)
When you’re not on the podium you…
I am trying to keep up with the sassiest almost 3 year old I’ve ever met (Charlie Rose) and the sweetest hunk of a 1 year old (Hayes).
What was your dream job when you were a kid?
I have always wanted to be a teacher and I was a first grade teacher for 2 years, until I had Charlie!
Who inspires you the most?
My parents. They are the most incredible human beings I know. I am who I am today because of them.
Your house is on fire… what do you grab?
What’s your biggest pet-peeve?
I HATE the juice that comes out of the ketchup bottle when you first squeeze it out.
Favorite DFW restaurant?
Mi Cocina…because what is better than mambos and queso???
Charlie Hunnam… Sons of Anarchy sold me on Jax Teller.
What’s in your gym bag right now?
A lot of diapers and suckers…because I am all for bribery.
Early Bird or Night Owl?
Early Bird. I have an internal alarm for 6:30am.
Last person you texted?
My little sister, Dooley
What was the text? 😉
“Want to get Mi Cocina?”
LEAST favorite food?
Sushi. Never tried it. Never will. I literally just eat pizza and cheeseburgers.
What’s your fitness background?
I played soccer my whole life! I was lucky enough to get a scholarship to play in college. My senior year I had double hip surgery, which ended my soccer career.
Favorite thing about ZYN22?
1) The community. The instructors & Z SQUAD give me life. They made me day every time I walked through the door. Also, the relationships I have made with people i ride with are incredible! I have met some really great friends though ZYN! 2) I love the person I am when I am in the dome and the person I am when I leave the dome. I am a better mother, wife, and human being because of the 45 minutes I get in there. More than what it does for me physically, the mental refreshment and transformation I get daily from ZYN22 is life changing.
