AAAAAY New York. We've brought on three new instructors to join our wild crew. Meet their fierce faces here. And show 'em love by taking a (( COMMUNITY CLASS )) with them this month. All proceeds go to She's the First, which sends girls to school for the first time around the world.
SYMONE GATES | 305 FITNESS - NYC
You. Got. This. In true warrior fashion, Symone brings uncanny energy and tremendous strength to every class. This pint-sized firecracker has an extensive sports and dance background, so you know she will bring the burn like no other. Her classes are intense, challenging and all-around badass. If you’re in #InItToWinIt, this petite ball of energy has got your back.
The daughter of two tough-minded (and incredibly loving) parents in the military, Symone was born in Germany and grew up traveling all over (cool, right?). You can't put Symone in a box. This vibrant, party-loving woman lives in color. A lover of fashion, this trendsetter found her love for fitness and fashion while studying at Northeastern University. While Symone is an insanely motivating instructor, she also knows how to bring the noize. Expect a true 305 party when you step into Symone's class. You'll back it up, drop it low, and shimmy non-stop with her flirty, work-hard-play-hard approach.
Ahhhhh tough one, but currently it's "Pull Over" by Trina. My favorite songs are the ones where the whole class goes HAM whenever it comes on.
Your favorite 305 choreo song?
What's your angel:devil ratio?Like most women, I'm dynamic. So my percentages change daily. Usually 75% angel in the streets until I walk into the 305 studio...then I become 95% devil!
The first time you took 305, you left thinking?"That's going to be me teaching the class someday"...boop, I did it!
Your favorite place to eat on 8th Street?
Ooooh there's this Thai place that I can't remember the freaking name of. I think it's called Rasa Masa? But they have the best happy hour specials. Can you say $4 Mojitos!!???
Two things. I'm a sucker for new challenges, especially when it comes to fitness. Secondly, I love being surrounded by cool, creative, badass bitches.
Your earliest memory or performing/dancing?:I was in Kindergarten and I was selected to play the part of the blue flower. Don't know what the heck the play was about or what the heck my lines were, but I remember my mom went out and bought me a special blue denim dress that was ON POINT, HONEY!
