Gracelyn Tuoti is a 59 year old, active, healthy woman, but she hasn’t always been this way. At 51, Gracelyn had gained a significant amount of weight and had slipped into an inactive lifestyle. She knew she had to make a change and decided to take up dance. Although Gracelyn had never danced professionally a day in her life, she knew it would be something she’d enjoy as a way to get active and consequently, she began dance lessons with the Fred Astaire System.
She wanted to supplement her dancing by getting stronger and in turn, she ended up at Hive. Here, Gracelyn can entrust her trainers with understanding and directing functional training that drives her success in dancing.
Today, Gracelyn has been a U.S. Open to the World National Champion and a World Pro-Am Rhythm Champion where she performs as the amateur dancer and her partner as the professional. Gracelyn says, “I could never do what I do without the personal training I receive at hive; strength training for dance requires a degree of fitness knowledge that is not available at other outlets.”
