What does your daily or weekly fitness regime consist of? I do aerobics five times per week and lift three times per week. I spin in the winter and cycle in the summer.

What fitness clubs do you belong to, if any? Westwood Health and Fitness for the past eight years. Currently working out at Waukesha Athletic Club.

Other than the obvious health benefits, how has being fit improved your life? Being fit has increased energy and vitality in addition to a better diet and better sleep.

How does personal fitness affect your work life? Personal fitness allows me to be able to manage stress of the job as well as helping to promote a positive work experience.

How does fitness or wellness affect your overall organization? Improved employee productivity and moral as well as reduced health care costs. Zero percent increase in 2009!

What advice do you have for other executives interested in starting either a personal fitness plan or corporate wellness initiative? Lead by example and work hard to provide a culture where employees feel comfortable and are excited to upgrade their lifestyle.
