What is UP, Fringe Fam? We're back with another Garage Gym of the Week, and this week, we're featuring someone you might recognize. Let's give a round of applause for Alexis of @alexislunarbody on Instagram!!
Alexis has been a part of the Fringe Fam for a while now, and posts kick-ass workouts on her Instagram. If you don't recognize her, you should totally follow her! She works hard as hell, and has great advice, coaching cues, and workouts on her page.
Without further ado, let's meet Alexis (and her dog Koa 😇)
What’s Your Name?
Do you have a name for your gym?
Tell us a little about yourself - what you do when you aren’t lifting, what are your other hobbies, etc.
Any outdoor activities: kayaking, hiking, going to the beach, rollerblading. I also love animals!
What gear do you have in your gym?
When did you become part of the Fringe Fam?
What’s your favorite gear that you use all the time?
Women’s oly barbell
What gear do you never use?
What was your best gear purchase?
What gear purchase do you wish you would have said “NO” to?
What’s your favorite workout?
What’s the best advice you’ve ever received?
When you can't control what's happening, challenge yourself to control how you respond to what's happening. That's where your power is.
What advice would you give to newbie garage gymmers?
A lot of people ask me what gym equipment I recommend. My advice is always the same: invest in whatever you’re most likely to use!
Like Kettlebell workouts? Get some kettlebells.
Don’t like bench press? Probably best to stay away from buying a bench. The most valuable exercise is the one you find yourself doing. There is no right or wrong to fitness. Just make sure you pick something you truly enjoy.
Thank you, Alexis! We're proud to be a part of your garage gym journey. You're awesome!! For good measure, here's another pic of Alexis' #gymdog, Koa 😍
As always, Fringe Fam, lift heavy, lift happy!
