“Family has always been a huge priority in my life,” she explains. Lexie has three siblings and while they are all very different, the closeness with her family while growing up had a huge influence and impact on who she is today.
“I was a competitive tennis player most of my life, alongside my sister Taylee. I got to experience traveling to tennis tournaments with her and I’m pretty certain that’s where my love for traveling came from,” she says. “Being active was always something that I loved and I’m thankful that we could all do together.”
It was during that time that her grandfather was diagnosed with stage 3 cancer and she decided to focus on living a healthier lifestyle. “That moment changed how I view health,” she says. “It became very personal for me and I wanted to be able to help and support him however I could.”
That focus both on family and on living a healthy lifestyle made working at CKC a perfect fit for the born and raised San Diegan.
“I love that I get the opportunity to help members with their fitness goals,” she says. “Our gym is different because it’s like we’re a family and we truly want to support one another… My focus on a healthy lifestyle is what really motivated me to become a part of the team.”
Lexie started working at the front desk of Carlsbad Kickboxing in March of this year. Before that, she managed a restaurant in Encinitas. “I was instantly drawn to the gym because of how welcoming it felt,” she explains. “When I walked in on my first day I remembered being so overwhelmed by how genuine and nice everyone was… I honestly love my job and I look forward to it.”
But while all CKC employees take their job seriously, Lexie included, it never feels like work to the 19-year-old. “Something I love about working at Carlsbad Kickboxing Club are the events we host,” she says. “I’ve gotten to know so many people at the gym and it’s just a really great time for us to all come together.”
