What’s up #RIPPEDFamily!
We are thrilled to announce January’s R.I.P.P.E.D. MVP, Regina Tudlong!
For the past 5 years, Regina has been a passionate member of the R.I.P.P.E.D. family. From taking her first class in 2014 to teaching her own classes as an instructor since 2016, Regina has fallen in love with helping others reach their health goals through exercise and community.
Discover how Regina used R.I.P.P.E.D. to create a more confident version of herself:
R.I.P.P.E.D.: What or who got you to your first R.I.P.P.E.D. class and when did you join the family?
Regina Tudlong: I tried my very first R.I.P.P.E.D. class at Riviera Fitness Center in Fort Walton Beach, FL in 2014. I was taking other group fitness classes, and when I saw a new class called R.I.P.P.E.D. on the schedule, I decided to try it. After my first class, I absolutely LOVED it! Tony Fernandez was the instructor at that time, and I got certified on February 6, 2016.
R.I.P.P.E.D.: Why did you choose to become a R.I.P.P.E.D. instructor?
Regina Tudlong: I decided to become a R.I.P.P.E.D. instructor because of all the other formats that I’ve tried and was doing, I was passionate about R.I.P.P.E.D. I knew that this was something I wanted to get involved in.
R.I.P.P.E.D.: How has R.I.P.P.E.D. impacted your life?
Regina Tudlong: R.I.P.P.E.D. has impacted my life by making me a stronger, healthier, and more confident person. I’ve also met and became friends with such amazing people that I would have never met if it wasn’t for R.I.P.P.E.D.
R.I.P.P.E.D.: How does it feel to be chosen as an MVP?
Regina Tudlong: It feels INCREDIBLE to be chosen as MVP!
R.I.P.P.E.D.: What is your favorite part about R.I.P.P.E.D. Season 35?
Regina Tudlong: My favorite part of Season 35 is the Warm-up with the #rippedfreestylechallenge!!!
R.I.P.P.E.D.: What is your best advice to stay motivated and keep pushing yourself during R.I.P.P.E.D. workouts?
Regina Tudlong: My advice to stay motivated is to surround yourself with positive people who have the same fitness goals. My advice to keep pushing yourself during a R.I.P.P.E.D. workout or what I like to yell out in class, “It’s all in the mind!!”
