Q1. You changed careers, didn’t you? Now you’re all about fitness, tell us about that.
A1. Yes, I come from a media background. Fitness has always been a major part of my life and about a year ago, I decided to make my passion for food and wellness a lifestyle. I hope to use my energy to help and inspire others. We are all on this journey together, and it's super motivating to know we can lift eachother up along the way.
Q2. What’s the key to success when it comes to fitness?
A2.The key to success when it comes to fitness is looking in the mirror and being completely truthful with yourself about your commitment level to improving your life and then setting long term goals to create what you envision as your ideal body and lifestyle. It’s important to realize that there are rarely any immediate changes. The road is often hard, there are going to be days that you don’t feel like lifting or preparing tomorrow's lunch.
