Tab Vedsted has begun her TRX Suspension Training Instructor certification with a live training in 2015; and has been teaching TRX at Ignite since 2015. Tab is also a DONA trained Birth Doula (with her certification nearly done), is certified in Adult CPR/First Aid/AED (automated external defibrillator), and took two classes of the Pilates Suspension Method. Tab recently started offering Pre- and Post-natal TRX classes at Ignite Pilates in Gillette, Wyoming.
When Teran opened Ignite Pilates in Gillette, Wyoming, Tab had the opportunity to attend a TRX training in Denver, Colorado.
“TRX fascinated me initially, and continues to do so. I like the simplicity of the equipment and also found it appealing that anyone: young, old, in tip top shape or just starting out. Anyone could use the TRX straps using their own body weight to making it as challenging as they were capable or wanted to,” says Tab. “I want to help people achieve that ‘feel good’ vibe when they attend a class with me. To let go of any future to do list or anything that happened before class. To just BE! Just be present and feel awesome that they took the time and energy to nurture themselves.”
Tab believes that moving her body and eating with intention is a passion of hers simply because it helps her feel more confident mentally and physically. “Before I truly started taking care of my health, I was tired. All. The. Time. I was always reaching for the next food or drink high—it was a vicious cycle,” she says.
Teaching movement has allowed Tab to stay true to herself and help others at the same time.
“My hope is that everyone can find their true potential, to hustle, and always be striving for the best version of themselves. We all have it in us and if it were easy everyone would do it!” she says.
When Tab isn’t teaching at Ignite, she is taking care (and loving on) her toddler, taking care of her pregnant self, working on a family-owned business with her husband, and working for clients in the community and surrounding areas as a birth doula with Bump & Beyond Doula and Birth Services. “In my spare time, I really enjoy food from scratch, traveling, warm weather, being creative, and spending time with family and friends,” she says.
