Get to know our wonderful gym manager Haley below! Find out what motivates her, what she’s up to behind the X⁴ desk and how she manages to wake up at 4 a.m. each morning!
How did you get into X⁴ and what’s your favorite thing about it?
I started X⁴ about three years ago, and I started the classes because I have always loved exercise. I had no idea how quickly the program allowed for weight loss! That was the exciting part. My stamina and endurance started increasing, and as I have gotten older, I find I am more energetic and not as tired as I was.
What can members expect from coming to X⁴ Fitness?
The people. It amazes me every day the kindness and genuineness of the people and personalities. I genuinely enjoy coming to work and work out because of the type of people I get to interact with in the gym.
What are you most excited about for the new Mountain Brook location?
SAM!!! If you have not met our head coach, Sam, you are missing out. He makes my day better and happier every day. His personality and the way he leads the class is the best part about this place. :)
What are three words people would most use to describe you and why?
What are three words people would most use to describe you and why? Happy, Energetic, Friendly (that feels very boastful!!! I'm sorry!!)
What motivates you when you get up in the morning?
I know how the workout is programmed will push me to start my day strong, and the good conversations I will have will inspire me to have a perfect beginning to my day. My alarm goes off at 4 am every day, so this is a very serious question. It takes something special to get me out of that bed every day.
Name three songs that always give you that extra push during a workout?
What are you up to in your free time?
My free time is always spent with my family, which includes my husband Bryan, my two daughters Carter (21), Sydney (18), and our Goldendoodle Cana (11). We are currently spending our days celebrating Carter's college graduation from the University of Tennessee, Sydney's graduation from Hoover High School, and Carter's wedding this coming June. Lots of celebrating and lots of planning. But it has been so much fun—lots of "newness" and exciting beginnings. We have a super close family, so this has been a very special time for us.
