Lift-off 2019 with the Ladies of LIFT

One of the reasons to return to a routine with conviction is that built sense of community, the commodore, the people you surround yourself with – your champions! This year, make those resolutions stick by creating a new fit family at LIFT San Mateo, right here at Bay Meadows. We’re all human and even your trusty instructors have their secret indulgences. Meet the ladies of LIFT and share in their holiday favorites this season.

Amy Waldman/Fitness Professional, aka fitness tour guide. I teach LIFT Bike, Barre and Heated HIIT

My favorite holiday movie: Love Actually and Elf, obvi

Our family tradition includes:  We are creating new traditions with our 4.5 year old daughter. They include, but are not limited to, Christmas Caroling, spending time with family and friends, listening to and soaking in as much holiday cheer as possible. As importantly, being kind and available and connecting with as many people as possible. The holidays are a wonderful time for many, but a tough time for many others.

Favorite holiday tune: All I want for Christmas (duh), Jingle bells, Marshmallow world, Rudolph, Feliz Navidad

Secret holiday indulgence: I attend an annual cookie swap, it is a bit of a ‘friendly’ competition. Many people attend, which means, there are many different baked goods to sample to be a fair judge. :)
