What has been your most demanding physical feat/endeavor/adventure?

The Tough Mudder in Beaver Creek. I completed this right after I moved here from Indiana, so I wasn’t used to the elevation. Also, I am not a runner so that was way outside of my wheelhouse.

What’s on your “active lifestyle bucket list?

An eco-adventure in New Zealand. I’ll spend my days hiking, surfing, and sailing and enjoying any, and all, water activities. I know, I know, a girl from Indiana, who lives in Colorado, is in love with the water. I’ve got a passport though!

What’s your favorite “get-me-jacked-up” song?

“Burial” by Yogi & Skrillex

What’s your favorite out-of-gym activity?

Water skiing. Slalom, of course.

The perfect pair of shoes…

Nike Air Max 90’s

My favorite pre-workout fuel is…

A banana.

My favorite post-workout fuel is…

A smoothie with as much dark chocolate as possible!

If I could pick one food to be made calorie-free, it would be…

Blue Pan Brooklyn Bridge Pizza w/some ranch dressing.

If I had only one piece of fitness equipment to travel with it would be…

A kettlebell.

The part of my fitness program I struggle the most with is…

Nutrition. Because I love food…and eating cheese.
