What is your athletic background?: I was very involved in the high impact aerobics craze in the Vic Tanny/Bally days. (Yes, I wore those crazy outfits like Olivia Newton-John - don’t judge!) Then I took 15 years off and did nothing using work and the kids as excuses. (Don’t make that mistake ladies!)

What is your favorite and least favorite WOD / movement?: I love the workouts where you keep moving from one exercise to another for a specific period of time. My least favorite is assault bike, of course!

What is your greatest accomplishment? Personal, professional and fitness related. :Being a successful working mother.

Has CFR made you better? If yes, how so? : No doubt. I am stronger and happier now that I have returned to exercise. Being inactive is a waste of life.
