Congratulations to our April 2018 Member of the Month, Misty Caples! Misty is beauty, strength, and commitment personified. When you meet Misty, you'll see her beauty inside and out. When you workout with her, you'll see her strength. And when she strolls into the studio, Misty's commitment to her health and fitness is an inspiration to anyone that knows her. Whether, running, spinning, doing a boot camp or TRX class, or Yoga...she brings her all every workout. Her commitment has rubbed off on her husband, Clint - who's now a regular at the studio. Congratulations to Misty and thank you for being a part of the PushPointe community!
Do you have any nicknames?
Where are you from?
I’m originally from Upperstrausburg, Pennsylvania
How long have you been at PushPointe?
I believe 14 months
What brought you to PushPointe?
I took a special yoga class at Pushpointe that was taught by one of my favorite yoga instructors Bridget Zapolnik. At that time I was looking to work on getting more fit, and Pushpointe offered classes that would help me with this. It wasn’t long before I was hooked on the spin and strength classes. I’m so glad I joined! I feel so much better about myself and my health! :)
What classes do you usually attend?
Spin, TRX, and strength camp. I usually try to do something cardio in the morning like a spin class, and then I’ll come in the evening to take a strength class of some sort.
What do you do outside of PushPointe (work, school, etc.)?
I work full time at Carolina Neurosurgery and Spine in Uptown Charlotte. I also spend a lot of time with my family which consists of my hubby of 24 years, a 22 year old son, a 18 year old daughter and 3 fur babies (2 cats and 1 dog)I also enjoy practicing hot yoga and running.
What is something about you we might not know?
I have a red Swedish fish addiction. Seriously. I only get them for special occasions because I can seriously sit and eat a whole bag of them in no time lol
Who is your superhero?
My grandmother. She raised me when I was younger. She was such a strong lady and she taught me a lot about life, endurance and being a strong self reliant woman. She had breast cancer and fought hard to fight it but unfortunately she passed away from cancer when I was 11. I’ve always made it my goal in life to be like her.
What is your favorite PushPointe class?
Thursday’s 6pm strength camp class taught by Ron. Ron always makes the class very interesting and it’s always a great work out!
What is your greatest achievement at the studio so far?
I would say that feeling of being fit and healthy. I’ve lost weight and built muscle which is great, but the confidence in myself due to living a healthier lifestyle is my greatest accomplishment. It’s a great feeling to accomplish things I didn’t think I would be able to do.
What is one goal, and what have you been doing to work towards it?
I have been wanting to do a stair climb race for the past few years but have not felt like I was strong enough. I have committed to do a Stair Climb at the end of April climbing the Duke tower in Charlotte. I’ve been working hard to be prepared for it, and I’m excited to do something that I’ve never done.
What motivates or inspires you?
Honestly my family does. They have always been supportive of me and encourage me. They are always there cheering me on to accomplish whatever goals I may have.
What is your best tip for new members?
To not give up! No matter how tough the class might be or if you are struggling with results not happening as quickly as you would like, just keep at it. We all have days where we get discourage but just keep at it and I promise you that you will be happy you did! The staff and members are so awesome and encouraging so turn to them for any help you may need!
Do you have anything to add?
I just want to say thank you to Pushpointe instructors and members for helping me become healthier and more fit. I love coming to classes, and I’m grateful for the time and effort that everyone puts in to provide wonderful classes and opportunities for the members!
