I dropped a major bombshell yesterday. Yep, I quit my full time corporate job (still gasping!) to follow my heart, and start my own business in health and wellness. This was an exciting decision, but let me be clear. I could never have taken this leap of faith without witnessing the success of others who have made similar jumps. During the days when I doubted myself most (and I’m sure there will still be many more to come!), I often sought inspiration from listening to other entrepreneurs’ stories, and found comfort in their narratives. I am constantly inspired by people dedicated to living epic lives.
At some point this summer, I was sunbathing on the beach in Charleston, and as I pontificated life’s existence between glasses of Rosé – or more likely, agonizing over my return to work the next week- I came up with an idea. Wouldn’t it be amazing if I could encourage others to follow their passions by showcasing other people doing the work they love?
Sooo, welcome to my new blog series- “Cool People, Doing Cool Stuff”! Ya dig?
This first post is about a really great woman, who happens to own a Barre studio here in Baltimore, called Pop Physique, a.k.a Butt School. Pop Physique originally hails from LA, and has only in the past few years opened in select locations on the East Coast. If you don’t know me well enough by now, I am a total Barre junkie. And, I have the biggest crush on Pop. Besides the killer workout, Pop Physique embodies a unique aesthetic in the Barre world. It’s almost like the chicks that were too cool for school, but were also simultaneously the most welcoming group of gals you’ve ever met. It’s a pretty freaking awesome dichotomy. Besides, their website also advertises this:
The owner of the Baltimore studio is Kim Nagle. She’s the kind of woman that just wants to help other women. And that makes her super, duper rad in my book. Her studio is gorgeous, her teachers are amazing, but best of all- she just makes getting your tail kicked at 8:30 on a Saturday morning really, really fun. Seriously, I swear. I had the opportunity to ask Kim a few questions about Pop Physique and her path to becoming an owner of one of the most popular studios in Baltimore. Check it out.
