Q. What is your current nutrition regimen?
As a raw vegan, I eat fruits, vegetables and some nuts/ seeds. I have a fruit smoothie for breakfast, but prior to that I drink lemon in water as a detox. Three hours later, I typically eat three mangoes, followed by five bananas three hours later, and a large salad of greens, sprouts, tomatoes, lemon, nori, seaweed ,goji berries, etc. I also drink water from a natural spring through the day. I became a raw vegan to protect animals and to try a different approach to eating. I will not turn back.
Q. What motivated you to pursue personal training and Pilates instruction?
I enjoy the benefits of a healthy mind, body and soul and would like to encourage others to do the same. I want to serve as a role model and help others get into shape.
Q. What is your current exercise/training regimen?
I work out in the morning to start out my day fresh and do yoga in the evenings to prepare me for the next day. I run three times per week, do circuit training three times per week, weight lift two to three times per week, and do yoga three to five times per week.
I have completed the Warrior Dash and Spartan Races. I like to push my fitness and health to greater levels, and races like these allow me to do that.
Q. What advice do you have for someone looking to begin a career in the health and fitness industry?
I advise people to get knowledge through practice and theory. Also learn from successful trainers on their methodologies and learn how they encourage clients to stick to their fitness programs.
