Cool Peep of the Week: Brooke Taylor
Who is the cool peep? Brooke Taylor
I am the owner of Taylored Fitness NY LTD and creator of “TFIGNITE” an innovative online training program designed for optimal weight loss and total body transformation, to help women feel good again in their own skin! I am a native of Buffalo, New York currently residing in Astoria, Queens. I graduated from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro with a dual major in BFA in Dance and Choreography and a BA in Psychology.
What are a few of your favorite things?
My children are my world! My family and friends are my biggest support system. Movement is my passion. I love being active. I love my job. I love helping people move, feel good in their bodies, and build confidence. I am a fitness fanatic. I love my Asics running shoes, my Polar watch (never workout without it), Chocolate Mint Zing Bars, Dave Matthews Band, acoustic concerts, reading an inspirational book. I live for the nights of laughing uncontrollably with friends. I also love the outdoors and exploring new adventures. North Carolina still has my heart and is truly a place of peace where I can just step away from my everyday life and transition into a “simple life.” Toes in the sand, beach waves, a good book, flip flops, family = my serenity.
What is on your wish list?
There are so many places that I want to see and experience. In due time I would love to take a couple of weeks off and travel the world. I find it so fascinating to learn about different cultures and their way of life. We often get so caught up in our everyday hustle that we forget to stop and see the beauty that surrounds us.
I would to love to have my own center where families can be active, learn and have fun. I would also love to give back and create something special to help children in St. Jude or for those who are less fortunate.
What’s your favorite haunt?
On one of those big wooden swings in NC overlooking the ocean. It is one of my favorite past times.
What’s playing on your iTunes/Pandora/Spotify etc., right now?
Anything and everything for my fitness classes: Dave, Rihanna, Beyonce, Justin Beiber, Calvin Harris, Taylor Swift, Flo Rida, Fuel, The Fray, Ke$ha, Ne-Yo, Whitney Houston, 112, U2, etc.
What handbag are you carrying and what is in it – right now?
Do you really want to know? Everything and anything! I think I would win for carrying the most random stuff. I have 2 mini therabands for glute work, a tennis ball for self-myofascial release, cocoa butter chapstick, my wallet, lip gloss, IPAD, headphones, Cell Phone, hair ties, Zing Bar, and a water bottle. I am always prepared for a workout!
What song plays when you walk into a room?
It depends on the room!
Where can we find you next?
You will find me working on my next big project! The exploration process never ends……
