My favorite way to work out: SoulCycle addict!
5 things I can’t live without: My hubby Dino, my 95+ pairs of sneakers, Lululemon (everything), my Garmin Forerunner 910 XT, The Bachelor & Bachelorette franchise, and popcorn. (OK, that’s six things!)
On my fitness bucket list: Climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro and completing a Half-Ironman.
I’m happiest when I’m: Wearing Lululemon, a pair of bright Nike sneakers and working out.
My fitness mantras: “You swam in the Hudson River—therefore you really can do anything.”–NYC Triathlon 2009, 2010 & 2012

My favorite way to work out: Running with some good tunes. Some people get bored easily but this is my go-to stress fix not to mention I see results almost immediately!
My biggest indulgence: Pizza! And wine, preferably together?
On my fitness bucket list: Surfing…even though I’m lacking in the coordination department.
My “I Did It” moment: Completing the NYC Marathon 7 minutes under my goal time.
Most embarrassing song I’ll admit I work out to: Really, really awful techno music that would make you think I’m the newest cast member of the Jersey Shore cast. Hey, whatever works right?
My favorite way to work out: Running and spinning are my two faves, but I won’t ever turn down a good pickup soccer game. I’m also really into hot power yoga right now, and I love trying out new-to-me classes. I fully believe in moving out of your comfort zone!
5 things I can’t live without: All workout essentials (that counts as one thing, right?), peanut butter, blogging, magazines, and my friends and family.
On my fitness bucket list: My biggest goal is to run a half-marathon or marathon in every state before I’m 30. But I also really want to go paragliding, take a trapeze class, learn how to surf, run in a relay race like Hood to Coast and finish a Tough Mudder course.
My fitness mantra:“You’ll never regret a workout.” I repeat this to myself whenever I have trouble getting out of my comfy bed for a sweat session, and it works every time!
Most embarrassing song I’ll admit I work out to: “Wannabe” by Spice Girls and anything by the Backstreet Boys. I can’t help but get a goofy smile whenever these tunes pop on – I relive all of the memories with my high school friends and college roommate!

My favorite way to work out: Weight-training! I love plugging in my headphones and squatting away.
5 things I can’t live without: Family/friends, my 5-pound Yorkie Bella, my gym membership, warm weather, and the HopStop app (it truly is a lifesaver).
My fitness mantra: “The moment you want to give up is the moment you need to push harder.”
My biggest indulgence: Peanut butter! I’ve been obsessed (addicted?) since I was little. I’m talking spoon-in-the-jar obsessed.
My motivation comes from: My parents. They’re both personal trainers, in their 50s, and work out like they’re in their 20s. They continually inspire me to challenge and better myself.
