From Leigh Ann Yeager, Director of SYNCWELLNESS and Programming:
Every spring you tell yourself, after failed attempts at New Year’s Resolutions, that this year is THE ONE. This year will be the one where you buckle down, commit to working out, and achieve your goals. I know because I used to make the same promises to myself.
I found, after years of trying, that getting to my goals was easy as long as I had the right resources.
I needed a plan. I needed support. I needed accountability. I needed to make time for myself.
I’m ready to give YOU those resources, SYNCSTUDIO [DURHAM]…
THE PLAN: One hour-long, calorie-torching sweat session each week lead by the area’s best trainers and nutritional guidance and recipe idea to optimize results.
SUPPORT: Connect with your trainers and your training partners on our SYNCWELLNESS Facebook page all day, every day.
ACCOUNTABILITY: Check in on Facebook, myfitnesspal.com, and Instagram and receive weekly emails from your trainers.
TIME FOR YOURSELF: Meet with your trainer and your workout partners on Saturday mornings at 8am sharp at SYNCSTUDIO [SOUTH DURHAM].

SYNCSTUDIO….and a few others:
Fancy Eating = revolution

Hanging out = my house/neighborhood or downtown
What are some guilty pleasures?
Chubby’s Tacos and competition reality shows.
What side do you roll to after Savasana?
I roll onto my right side after Savasana because that it how I was originally taught and it stuck. I roll to my left side after a big meal.

Besides playlists and class plans… currently working on a few sewing projects, along with continuing house renovations (2012 is year of the floor and inside projects, 2013 will be exterior landscaping and building a detached office/workspace in the back yard)
Biggest accomplishment to date?
Becoming a homeowner on my own at age 25, and/or quitting my job to pursue my love of fitness
Party songs = Girl Talk
Feeling blue song = “Needle in the Hay” by Elliott Smith, or stuff by The National
Savasana song = n/a (am I not supposed to be sleeping at this point in class??)
Dance alone to = anything by Robyn or The Talking Heads
Driving music = Wes Anderson Movie Soundtracks, Wait, Wait, Don’t Tell Me, and if I am feeling tired I listen to Toto or The Killers so I can practice my karaoke songs really loudly.
Duh! DURHAM (but I really like visiting Washington, DC and San Francisco. And I’d go back to any of the European cities I’ve visited in a heart beat).
What is your stage name?
C-Note (Get it? Like music AND money!)
Pro-Wrestler Name and/or Finishing Move?
“Buff Valentine” (www.wrestlingname.com) and I would use hilarious jokes to take down my opponents. Or I’d somehow incorporate star jumpies.
Baywatch, White Lightning, CRT
