Co-Founder and Lead Instructor

What is your favorite class to teach/why?
THIS is my LEAST favorite question! I like them ALL for very different reasons: Down + Dirty - because of the slowing down to really get into a heavy lift. Hustle + Flow - because the cardio junkie in me comes out AND I absolutely LOVE teaching to the beat of the music. Compass Full Direction - because it’s always a unique blend of fast and slow, heavy weights and cardio, a smorgasbord of exercise if you will.

If you get caught singing loudly in the shower...what song are you singing?
Duh- Anything Missy Elliott. But sometimes she raps too fast for my singing skills.

What do you do for fun outside of Compass?
Be in nature, Dj fitness/yoga events, hunt down the best margaritas in town, soak in Colorado’s hot springs, share precious time with friends + family.

What's your favorite saying or buzzword when you teach?
“You can thank Heather Lorince for this.” - “Squeeze the dickens out of it.” - “Remember when jumping rope used to be fun?” - “This move is terrible news.”

Hustle and Flow...because there's no water breaks, there's a mix of cardio and strength and the hour is done before you know what hit you.

TAYLOR AMES
Instructor

What is your favorite class to teach/why?
Compass Full Direction. And not just because it's the only class I teach... It gives me a chance to combine multiple aspects of fitness, while still being able to add in my own personal twist. Any time Cory puts cardio into the workout, I find a way to make it WAY more cardio than he anticipates. And when he comes to class and I make him do WAY more cardio than he anticipates, it makes my heart smile.

If you get caught singing loudly in the shower...what song are you singing?
"Let It Go" from Frozen. I hit all of the high notes. No problem.

What do you do for fun outside of Compass?
I am a competitive and sponsored triathlete.

After this, you never have to exercise again, if you so chose!

ANDREA HOLLANDER
Instructor

What is your favorite class to teach/why?
Full Direction and Down and Dirty cause its an awesome full body workout. But my favorite class to take is knockout cause it feels good to throw some kicks and punches.

I am always singing in the shower and its normally to Ray Charles, some classic rock hit, and of course I love my 90’s!

I travel when possible, ski in the winter, watching cute animal videos on the internet, Netflixing a creepy detective shows, and I’m always reading.

What's your favorite saying or buzzword when you teach?
When teaching I say a lot of things that I don’t even understand …. but the one thing I always say is “you do you” and “10 seconds” (which is always more like 20-30) and I like to say “Anddddd Timmmmeeee” cause if I prolong it you have to stay in your squat just a bit longer.
