HEALTHY LIVING PHILOSOPHY
“Fitness isn’t a workout—it’s a 360 degree approach to a healthy lifestyle. It’s everything from the workout to nutrition to proper recovery. It’s learning to give yourself a day off to interact with a really fun community that supports your lifestyle. That community makes it easier for you to keep it up on a daily basis and makes your fitness a long-term solution instead of a short-term answer.”
SECRET HEALTH TIP
“I love working out first thing in the morning to get all that extra energy and stress worked out of my body and rev up my endorphins. It gets me focused, motivated, and energized for the rest of the day. And then it’s out of the way! Plus, I make plans to workout with friends so we start the day off with some much needed endorphins and catch up time."
