Hi y’all! My name is Iris and I’m from Utrecht, the Netherlands. Recently I got lucky enough to become a member of the very #inspirational, #loving and #badass #FITGIRLCODE crew. Want to know why I signed up to be a member of this fabulous community? Just keep reading!
I am a dreamchaser by day and a vampire at night who eats Kryptonite for breakfast :-). Although I consider myself as being strong there is one thing I can’t conquer or overcome and that is SLEEP.
Besides my love for sports I’m also into dancing, especially Latin-American styles. The sounds of bachata, merengue and samba music always make me want to get up and move as listening to such tunes, and being able to dance just gives me life. Even when I should be acting all civil and business appropriate I always feel the need to take out my 15 seconds of fame and bust a move on-the-spot. I think I got it from my mamma 🙂
My fit journey
As long as I can remember I’ve been interested in various kinds of sports. I’ve ran track, played basketball and kickboxed for a while. Doing the same thing over and over again is something I’m allergic to. That is why until a year ago I kept searching for a sport or activity that could keep me entertained and challenged for a longer period of time. I found what I was looking for when I decided to start working out with a personal trainer at a gym in Nieuwegein. My PT didn’t joke around, he meant business and really pushed me in our sessions. He made very clear why I was there right of the bat:
‘ You are not here to make friends or like me. You are here to #WORK.’
