Q: Tell us who you are, where you’re from, and what you do.
A: I'm Fleur Maxwell - an Olympic figure skater, turned wellness entrepreneur, from Luxembourg. Im half Australian, half danish, and spent 20 years of my life as an elite athlete. Since retiring from skating, I created a workout method, "BODY BY FLEUR" (check it out here) that is a full body, low impact workout inspired by what i used as a skater to help maintain joint health, work the body as a whole, and strengthen gracefully - and my workouts can be done anywhere!
Q: How would your friends describe you?
A: I reached out to a few friends to answer this, and here is what they came up with: “Fleur is kind, patient, ambitious, nurturing, perseverant, funny, a great host ( i always make sure my friends are well fed) and able to survive for at least week with what’s in my handbag / black hole."
Q: What's one thing you're passionate about?
A: I'm passionate about movement. Sport has always been my go-to. I believe that when we move, we shift energy, and you never regret a workout.
Q: What does self-care look like to you?
A: Self care takes many forms for me: taking a bath every night and doing my skincare routine, making my favorite smoothie, taking a walk with my girlfriend and our dog @olliemiso, going to Shape House, or lighting my favorite Hotel Costes candle.
Q: How have you integrated Favour into your everyday routine, and when do you use Favour?
A: I find myself reaching for my Favour gum almost every morning. I start work at 5:30am (note: I'm not a morning person), and I find that having 1-2 pieces of Favour helps to get me going and helps to loosen up stiff muscles and joints.
Q: What’s your current favorite song?
A: My current favorite songs are: “Say So” Doja Cat, and “Nice to Meet Ya” by Niall Horan.
Q: How do you do yourself a Favour?
A: I do myself a Favour by always trying to have faith that things will somehow work out, and to practice self care everyday in some form or another.
