Instructor Insight: Lexi, Owner of Kálon Spa in Bellevue

Name: Lexi Taylor

What business do you own?
I provide post workout recovery massage, cupping and lymphatic drainage sessions at Kálon Spa.

How did you get into the fitness & wellness industry?
I have been very active all my life from dance and horseback riding as a kid and sports all through high school to lifting weights and doing yoga as an adult. I became interested in massage after getting hit by a drunk driver in a car accident at 18 and getting massages to recover from my injuries. I thought it was amazing how massage could help people recover from injuries and stress, improve posture, and help take away the post workout soreness.

What’s your one piece of advice for someone who wants to live a healthier life?
Start small! Whenever I get out of the habit of working out or eating well I try to dive back in 110% with high intensity workouts 5+ days a week and extreme diet changes and it ALWAYS backfires 🤦🏼‍♀️. Start with small consistent goals, crush them and then build from there. It’s just like what I tell my massage clients – your chronic pain didn’t happen overnight it’s more than likely from years of compounding issues (poor posture, compensation, old injuries), it will take more than one hour of massage (or one week of extreme diet/workout changes) to make a LASTING change. Consistency is key!

What’s your bucket list travel destination?
Everywhere! When I was younger I was never interested in traveling but since having my daughter I absolutely want to see – and show her – the world! One place I have always wanted to see is Australia.

What’s your favorite podcast or book?
I love the book Girl, Wash Your Face by Rachel Hollis. I listen to the audiobook version when I need a reminder that I CAN do this!

If you could bring one thing on a deserted island what would it be and why?
A Kindle with a ton of books on it! If I’m on a deserted island I might actually have some peace and quiet to read them! 😂
