I’ve never considered myself athletic. As a child, my mom would encourage me to participate in sports, and I failed miserably. I attended dance classes, and that was my niche. I can jump, turn, and step all day! But ask me to catch a ball? Not going to happen.
As I grew older, I decided to take on the hobby of contortion and hand-balancing. I say "hobby," as I will never be a part of the circus. Some people like to run, do yoga, or lift weights—I like to get bendy and lift my own body weight. When I finally dove into practicing contortion and hand-balancing, the cycling and bootcamp classes fell to the sidelines.
