Q: What motivates you to stay fit?
In the beginning I worked out for pure aesthetics. It’s true… It was all about looking good. But now that I’ve been in the fitness industry for almost 20 years, I’ve learned a thing or two and what really is most important to me is the functionality of my body. Living in a body of health gives me the opportunity to always do what I want when I want. Working out also improves my mental state. In the end feeling confident loving the body I’m in. Sure looking good is a great byproduct but in the end what really matters is how we feel and how well we can move and enjoy life.
Q: What is your favorite type of workout?You could say I’m a hiit junkie! LOL But I truly enjoy all types of workouts so it’s hard to pick just one. Pilates is at my core, it truly helps me move in every facet of my life and it complements every other workout that I do. Hiit workouts keep me lean and makes me happy by accomplishing hard things. But I can’t go a week without training resistance whether it’s bands or free weights training, I love it all!
Q: What is your best piece of fitness advice?When I was new to fitness I thought there was only one way to be fit, one way to work out, and one way to eat. The biggest lie we believe in fitness is that there’s only one way. I would tell anyone out there to explore options, if you’re not enjoying your workout find something that you do enjoy. Movement comes in all forms and as long as we are moving sweating and smiling it’s going to benefit you in the long run and you can’t go wrong.
Q: Why do you use Stroops?
One of the many reasons I love Stroops and use it in my training is the functionality. I can take someone from strength training, to hiit training, to mobility work, to functional training and to straight core work! I also love using it in my Pilates practice. It’s easy to set up and I can take it anywhere! EVERYTIME they come out with a new product I have to have it, it’s so fun to work with! And all the STROOPS products work together so I can build a really good system, giving me endless possibilities inside my training.
