nash-christopher-byfordHe makes you test your limits.
Chris’ classes are uplifting, challenging and motivating. He always encourages us to try to take our poses a step further and to listen to our bodies. He is the best!” Rachael

He always makes you smile.
“Chris pushes the whole class to try something different and not be content with where you were yesterday. He makes everyone somehow smile the whole time he’s kicking our butt, and while I’m not smiling as much in the soreness the next day, I keep going back!” –Robin S.

He makes everyone feel confident.
“He always makes you comfortable to be yourself and pushes yme to do better. He never makes me feel stupid or like I don’t know what I am doing (although I sometimes don’t know). He empowers me and everyone in his classes.” –Enjoli

Kate Moore
Instructor at GetFit615
Second Year in a Row Winner!

nash-kate-mooreShe’s a friend, too.
“I’ve never been one to become great friends with class instructors, or stick around and mingle after class but Kate has made me want to change that. I seriously look forward to seeing her name on the ClassPass list. She is not only hilarious and motivating, she also makes everyone feel welcome regardless of ability level. She is super helpful and I always leave class feeling better physically and mentally!” -Sara S.

She brings joy to everyone.
Kate is a beacon of happiness. Her joy is infectious. She motivates people far beyond her class—organizing events, hikes, trips and opportunities to give back as well. She’s incredible.” -Caitlyn G.

She changes lives.
“I do not exaggerate when I say Kate is breathe of fresh air. She is always encouraging, always motivating and inspiring. I take a weekly morning class at GetFit615, and when Kate is not the instructor, my roommate and I are instantly sad. She will show you proper form for her class in a way that is extremely informative and constructive. Kate is seriously the best. She puts everyone in her class in a great mood for the day and makes you look forward to working out.” -Abigail K.

She exudes positivity. 
“Kate meets her students where they are on any given day. Whether they walk in the door for the first time or whether they have been coming for years, she figures out how to motivate everyone. Her classes are full of the positive energy she exudes, and she makes the workout into a community experience so you want to come back every day. When you don’t feel like working out, you know that once you get there she will give you the push you need to get something out of the workout. Whether it is mental or physical, you leave knowing that you did something great for yourself.” -Lindsay S.
