LoveYou Kickboxing's Fly Girl!
First Love You

Audra is amazing, I love having her in class! She's fun, goofy, determined, consistent, good humoured and a little sarcastic :) . So as to not receive one of her dirty looks, I try to be inconspicuous when I'm watching her technique in class.
I've had the good fortune to have Audra popping into class for three years. I've enjoyed watching her challenge herself, not only in class but in other endeavours as well. She runs half marathons, which if you've ever done one, you know 21 kilometres is no small feat.
I've also enjoyed watching Audra's technique advance, watching her change physically and gain strength. I am thankful that Audra has allowed LoveYou Kickboxing to be a part of her journey and transformation.
My motivation to come to class is to get fit, and punch things. I Love getting in shape and having fun.
Once apon a time I was a 205 pound unmotivated girl, that used the word I can't a lot. I don't even know her anymore, when I moved to Calgary 10 years ago for Westjet, I started to say Yes I Can.
I tried every exercise out there, Bootcamp, yoga, walking, Pilates, spin, but my favourite thing to do is kickboxing.
I bought a groupon 3 years ago for Love you kickboxing, and I found Cheryl... What a great instructor you are, non judgemental, motivating and fun to be around.
I brought many people to class, Terri, Joanne and Tracy. I love the diverse ladies at class, from true fighters to young women to stay at home moms, I love that it is a no judgement atmosphere.
My favourite move is uppercuts and hooks, they make me feel mean...in a good way. Kickboxing has improved my upper body strength and cardio. It has been apart of my life for three years and something I look forward to every week, but to be honest, I do enjoy punching Tracy. :).
My advise for someone who is scared to come out is, what is the worst thing that will happen, if nothing at all you will have a good laugh.
Thank you Audra for loving you and doing what you do!
