What does your daily or weekly fitness regime consist of? I workout 3-4 days per week. The workouts include cardio of 40-50 minutes, most often running and 30 minutes of strength training that includes free weights, push-ups or sit-ups.
What fitness clubs do you belong to, if any? Snap Fitness
Other than the obvious health benefits, how has being fit improved your life? Being fit has always been important to me. At a young age I worked at a fitness center and enjoyed helping other people learn about making themselves look and feel better. As I grew older, I found that fitness helped me deal with the stresses of life and work. And now, being a mother, having a full-time job and being a part of the military, I have to stay fit to be able to balance off of those important responsibilities. I want to be a good example for my son and living healthy is a great way to raise him.
How does personal fitness affect your work life? Personal fitness allows me to stay focused and is a great stress relief. We all need an outlet to refocus both our body and mind and physical fitness is what has alwasy worked for me.
How does fitness or wellness affect your overall organization? Wellness has brought our company together .
What advice do you have for other executives interested in starting either a personal fitness plan or corporate wellness initiative? It starts with YOU!
