BECCA MCCORMACK • OWNER, INSTRUCTOR   Born and raised in Houston, Texas, I have wonderful parents and three older siblings. As a family of six, we never had a dull moment in our home. Breaking the mold of my siblings’ Auburn trend, I made my way to Baylor and quickly fell in love with Waco. I started teaching fitness classes at the end of high school and grew to love challenging and inspiring my clients to produce not only stronger bodies but also stronger minds and hearts. My husband Clark and I decided to take a leap of faith and open Refine31 because we believe all of us desire and need a place where we can escape the worries of the world, even for just an hour. Our prayer is that the Lord will use Refine31 in a unique way to touch the lives of our Waco family!

  KENDAL JARRETT • INSTRUCTOR   A true Southern California girl, I moved to Texas in 2010. My husband and I have two beautiful daughters, Taylor Marie and Austin Leigh. We love traveling and exploring new places as a family, but on game day, you can always find us cheering on our Baylor Bears! I joined the Refine 31 team because the mission reflects so much more than just a place to work out. It is a place to build confidence and then empower others to cultivate qualities within themselves that they may not have recognized in their daily lives. I find great joy in being a part of a business that allows me to make meaningful contributions to the Waco community.

  NICOLE   ERWIN   • INSTRUCTOR   Born and raised in the Chicagoland area, I decided to take a leap of faith and move south to attend Baylor University. After graduation, I moved to Dallas before quickly realizing how much I missed Waco and how much Waco truly felt like home. I married a Red Raider, and we have a King Charles Cavalier pup that we are obsessed with! We love to golf, read, and hike together. I joined the Refine31 team because I have seen the effect it has on people first hand. It is so much more than a place to work out, and I am thankful for the community it has created. Joining as a member when it first opened, I have experienced the ways Refine uplifts and empowers its members. To have the opportunity to encourage others as part of the Refine31 team is the greatest blessing!

  LEA MENDEZ • INSTRUCTOR   Growing up, I was a runner and took that passion with me to college, where I ran cross-country and track for the Rice Owls. I met my husband, a Baylor grad, while I was in pharmacy school and started taking barre classes to keep me sane through residency.  I fell in love with the technique and always thought it would be so much fun to teach one day! My husband and  I moved to Waco shortly after getting married last year. We love to travel the world together and have a dog named Bear (naturally). I started taking classes at Refine31 the day it opened and absolutely love that R31 combines two very important things for me -- faith and fitness -- into one unique concept. I am so grateful and excited to be part of this team!

  RENÉ MACIEL   • INSTRUCTOR   Growing up with a dad who was a coach and physical fitness teacher then later became a preacher, I learned the importance of taking care of the body God gave me. After playing college basketball, I graduated from Hardin-Simmons University with a church recreation degree. I had planned on going to seminary to train for ministry but met Sabrina at HSU, and God had different plans for me. My career has been in higher education administration, but I have not stopped running, biking, and trying to stay in shape. I'm excited about being an instructor at Refine31 since God is still refining me.

  PAULA ROBERSON • INSTRUCTOR   I grew up and lived in Brookhaven, MS, my entire life before my husband and I moved here in May of 2017.  I graduated from Southern Miss with a BA in Psychology, but my husband quickly converted me to a MSU Bulldog Fan.  And now, I am a proud MSU Bulldog mom with both my boys, Reid and Jake, currently attending college there. I’ve always loved working out, but fitness became a passion of mine in my twenties.  I have had the pleasure of teaching a variety of fitness classes for over ten years.  I taught fitness classes and health related Bible studies at my church in MS.  In my thirties, I began doing sprint triathlons and century road bike rides.  Recently, I have discovered the health benefits of yoga, and I am now certified in holy yoga. I love anything that combines my passion for Christ and my passion for health and fitness.  I am so excited to be a part of the Refine 31 team, and I can’t wait to see what the future holds.

  CHLOE COX • INSTRUCTOR   Growing up in Fort Worth in an avid Baylor family, I attended Homecoming every year. So it was only natural for me to attend BU myself. I've always loved running and ran my first full marathon during college. After graduating and moving to Austin, I started to mix up my exercise regime. I fell in love not only with cycle and barre classes but also with a cute guy at my office who enjoyed being active as much as I did. My husband, Greg, and I moved back to Waco, and I was so excited when Refine31 opened. I love the Refine Team and the opportunity to encourage others in strengthening the bodies God gave us!

  HANNAH MIDGETT • INSTRUCTOR     I was born and raised on the Outer Banks of North Carolina, where I grew up playing sports throughout middle and high school. After graduating from college, working, and traveling for a year, I moved to Georgia, where I first discovered barre and quickly fell in love with it. I moved to Waco in 2016 and joined Refine31 as soon as it opened. Refine31 has empowered, inspired, and encouraged me, and I'm so excited to help do the same for others!

  ALAINA McGUIRE   • INSTRUCTOR   I am from Tulsa, Oklahoma and currently attend Baylor University. Studying Interior Design, I enjoy all aspects of the design world. I have grown to love Waco and everything it has to offer. With an extensive background in dance, I have come to love barre since I finished dancing. I also enjoy the fun, upbeat environment that cycle brings. I initially joined Refine 31 to stay in shape in college and to make my health a priority, but I quickly fell in love with the people and the mission. I believe God has purposefully placed me in the Refine community, and I am excited to see how He will use me!
