“Work Hard, Play Harder.”
I live by that little quote, and bouncing is a little bit of both! Life is too short to simply run on a treadmill. Expand your horizons and challenge yourself to new experiences; you might be surprised at how much you can accomplish.

“The days that break you, are the days that make you.”
I’ve had a lot of “tough times” in my life, and consider myself a resilient person. In those times where I/we feel like nothing is going right, there is always that moment where you stop and think…alright how can I fix this, or how can I get past this… and it’s almost like you snap! That is the moment you choose to become better, and those are the days that make you who you are.

“The greatest things in life aren’t really things.”
This quote is the perfect reminder of where to focus your energy and attention in life and also at Bounce. Some of the best “things” you’ll take away from class aren’t physical.
