Hello my name is Cuqui. I am 48 years old. I have a wonderful husband and three amazing children ages 22, 19, and 15. Many people say I am a very inquisitive person, I am very optimistic, and I am always full of energy, which makes sense because I am the type of person who needs to be always doing something. I am also the type of person who is open to every opportunity, despite how hard the obstacles can be, because I believe that great things come from the other side of your comfort zone.
I have been living in Colorado for 22 years now, but originally, I was born and raised in Mexico. I grew up with a very large and very traditional family. My parents had ten kids and I was the second youngest of those ten. I was able to gain so much life experience from simply growing up with nine other kids in the house. I learned the importance of hard work. Things will not come to you if you do not work hard enough. I believe you can achieve whatever you desire if you bust your ass off for it. I also believe that everything happens for a reason and every person you meet, whether it is the barista at your local coffee shop or a dance instructor at a random gym, has an impact on the person you are and the person you will become.
The year 2018 was one of my hardest years, but it was also the year that I fell in love with REB3L. This year was the year I realized, everything will work its way out eventually, because everything happens for a reason. At the beginning of 2018 I was at a place where I felt lost, I felt hopeless, I was confused, and I was constantly feeling depressed. It was a tough year for all of us. Even my children, who I had never had to worry about, were struggling academically and emotionally. This was especially tough for me because I had grown up very optimistic and I would constantly preach optimism and open-mindedness to my kids, but how was I supposed to keep my children encouraged if I was constantly feeling hopeless? Until one day I came across REB3L and my life was turned completely around.
One day I was at the gym, on my way to a hot yoga class, when I walked in, I saw a long line waiting outside of a fitness class. So immediately I had to check it out. I went into this fitness class not knowing what to expect, but I remember, the second I walked into the class I could instantly feel the positive energy. The loud and powerful music started to make me feel stronger and it served as a reminder that I am alright; I am exactly where I am supposed to be right now. Tricia’s passion and dedication for the class made me fall in love with everything about it. She is the perfect example of a badass and she inspired me to work hard to turn my life around. I fell in love with everything about the class. I fell in love with the atmosphere, the badass music, and overall, the uplifting community that has gotten me to where I am today.
Becoming a REB3L instructor has been the best thing that could have ever happened to me. REB3L was able to make me come to life and it has taught me so much about self love. It has affected every aspect of my life in the most positive way, and my goal is to do the same for others. I want to remind people that everything happens for a reason, that they are stronger than they believe, and most importantly that they are unstoppable.
