Below, we ask her about a few of her favorite things.
My favorite kind of workout is one that has movements that can be applied in real life. For example, on my Adventure Fitness retreat in Fiji I focus on fundamental movements, squat variations, presses, deadlifts, core, etc., things we do every day. I teach retreat participants how to do them correctly, add some intensity to it and, of course, include other movements as well, always sharing how one can apply the routine in your everyday life.
Favorite Workout Clothes:
Typically anything that helps me feel empowered and inspired to give my all in a workout, whether it highlights a catchy phrase or a powerful word on a tank or maybe an article of clothing made from a company that gives back.
Favorite Be The Good Jewelry:
The Counting My Blessings necklace. The last time I wore it, I was in Fiji. A little local girl came up to me and asked me if she could have it. She was so sweet, I couldn't resist and it seemed to be in the spirit of the necklace and the Be The Good brand to pay it forward, so I gave it to her.
Favorite place on Earth:
It would have to be Fiji. Which is why I have chosen this beautiful paradise for my Adventure Fitness Retreat. There is something magical about the people and the land. They are known for being the friendliest people on earth. It’s an emotional experience that brings me to tears every time I leave.
In 2014, I joined the Safe San Juans Board of Trustees, where I served as Board Chair. I have personal experience with sexual assault, so I am super committed to the Safe San Juans mission of preventing and eliminating domestic violence and sexual assault through victim services, education, community awareness and cultural and social change.
Favorite Inspirational Motto:
You can do whatever you put your mind to!
