Fitness

I love fitness, exercising, and feeling strong and healthy.  I love fitness so much that I’m a certified Spin and Group Power instructor.  I taught group fitness exercise at Equinox about 5 years ago while in college and once I graduated to pursue a career in Business Management, teaching had to take backseat as I felt I was juggling too much at one time.  However, it’s always been a passion of mine and I never stopped loving it.  One day I’d like to teach again and it’s always in the back of my mind…hopefully one day again I’ll get to.  And if you have any Spinning or Group Power questions, please ask as I’d be more than happy to help 🙂

My workouts range from a variety of different things such as taking spinning classes (my fav!), a 3 mile run, bootcamp classes, interval training, free weights, and incline walking.  Somedays I like to plan my workouts, others I like to just go with the flow and do what my body and my mind feel like doing at that moment.  Below is a daily log of my workouts to give you an idea of the variety (with a focus of spinning ;)) I like to incorporate and to keep me on track with my workouts as well.  Enjoy!

      Thank you!! But I have to admit the “M” is for Menlo High School, where my husband coaches boys lacrosse. We’ve gotten lots of flak for that since it resembles UM so much!! 😉
