About Marty

1.  What do you enjoy most about working at Uncommon Age? 

Hands down, the people.  Both our clients and trainers are just an outstanding bunch of folks. They are down to earth, authentic, intelligent, and most of all, welcoming and accepting of us all!

2.  How would you describe the culture of Uncommon Age? 

Smart and fun.  I personally like to be understand why I’m doing something, and why I should invest my time, effort and money in anything.  I hope to address that in what we do at UA. Things need to make sense to me but at the same time, I want to find joy in what I am doing.  I work off the assumption most people share that desire.

3.  I am inspired by:

Those that I can learn from, which is everyone!  Continual learning and growing is very inspiring to me.

4.  Favorite book/favorite vacation spot/favorite movie/color/junk food:

I love summer, water, and heat.  Everyone that knows me knows that.  So wherever that is, I’m good!  I also love comedic action flicks, 21 Jump Street and The Good Guys are among some of my favorites.  My sister and I always joke that whatever movie she likes, I’ll hate, and vice versa.  It’s all about decreasing threat to my nervous system, so entertainment for me needs to be fun!

5.  How would you describe yourself?

I’m pretty much an open book.  What you see is what you get!  I highly value authenticity and transparency when working with my staff and clients.

About Renee

Renee Lindquist has been a beloved yoga teacher in the St. Croix Valley since 2004. In 2013, after years of teaching yoga, Renee suffered a painful back injury. Her search for pain relief took her through various channels of western medicine but nothing seemed to help. Then she found a Yoga Therapist practicing SomaYoga Therapy. It was there that Renee found not only relief from pain but also more freedom in her body than she had experienced in a long time.

In 2015 Renee received her 500 Hour Teacher Training Certification in SomaYoga Therapy. Since then she has been passionate about helping people in chronic pain. Renee draws from a wide variety of both SomaYoga therapy and clinical nursing experiences. She works on the premise that people need to understand the “why” of something and experience those benefits before they will choose to apply it on their own. Ultimately, Renee helps clients in chronic pain overcome fear with curiosity and education about their bodies. Renee gives them tools to understand and release their pain. As clients begin to replace fear with curiosity, their fear melts away and once again they learn to trust their bodies.

*Currently Renee is enrolled in the Clinical Somtaic Educator program at the Navato Institute for Somatic Research and Training in Navato, CA.

About Pamela

1.  What do you enjoy most about working at Uncommon Age? 

I enjoy working out at UA because I am constantly learning new information about helping people live and move in more efficient ways!  It’s like no other gym or studio I have been to and the people who work out at the studio are so kind and open to trying new things.

2.   How would you describe the culture of Uncommon Age?   

Uncommon Age is a welcoming studio where anyone at any level of fitness or any age can come and work out at a level that works for them.  There are so many options and accommodations depending on what type of workout an individual wants. No two workouts are the same.

3.  I am inspired by:  

Helping people feel better physically.  Working out is so much more than how many lbs. you want to lose! It’s also about how you want to feel not just today but for the rest of your life.

4.  Favorite book/favorite vacation spot/favorite movie/color/junk food:

I love to read psychological mysteries where the unexpected happens.  I love trying to predict “who did it” before the end of the book.  I am a chocoholic and I own it but it’s all about moderation; sometimes! As far as a vacation spot, just get me to the Atlantic Ocean where I can swim in the ocean and get a good slice of NY pizza and I am a happy girl!

5.  How would you describe yourself?

Part of the reason I enjoy this gig at Uncommon Age is the history of heart disease in my family. I want to be healthy, I want to help others be healthy, and I want to be a role model for my children and family that you can be physically active at any age.   I was raised to believe I can do whatever I put my mind to so whenever someone says, “I can’t do that” or “it’s too hard” I want to help them accomplish what they thought they couldn’t!
