Can you adopt a new exercise regimen at 65? Absolutely! Maryann Curtis is living proof. She’s not only an InstaPhysique devotee but also a walking billboard for the amazing changes you will see when you put in the work.
Maryann is the co-founder of Nova Salon Systems Inc and a new puppy owner. When the new puppy was running circles around her, she realized it was time to find something new. As fate would have it, a friend introduced her to Insta at just the right time.
Tell us about your first class:
The very first class kicked my butt from here to Mars. I said, “This is a game changer.” I was addicted immediately. It was a struggle. I had to sit in my car for 5 minutes before I felt like I could drive home. I knew this was the whole thing wrapped up in 40 minutes.
Front or Back Platform?
I like them both. I’m never really sure which is harder. I think it’s the back. When I’m on the back more, and then I go to the front, it’s easier. But it’s never easy.
My happy place is…
The fact that even though I’m doing Lagree, I can use my breath to help me push and give me more oxygen. It also calms you down.
I knew I loved Insta when…
Within the first five minutes of the first class. It was challenging. It was everything I knew I needed. It showed me my weak points. It made me realize I wasn’t doing any cardio. I love the TEACHERS and the camaraderie of all the ladies.
What is the first thing you did this morning?
I wake up, and I read the NY Times. Actually, first thing is I take the puppy out. Then I get everything squared away in the house and then I’m on the road (to Insta). I get there early because I like to wiggle around and I have a favorite spot. I stare at the H (on the blue wall in Roseville).
What is the most spontaneous thing you have ever done?
Talked my future husband, brother in law and sister in law into starting a business, Mamini Corporation, Nova Salon Systems, Joico hair products. Oh, and I’ve jumped out of airplanes.
