Tell us how your winning photo came about?
This photo came about from the collaboration I have with my lovely photographer TheRealHBMedia. We work along with each other monthly to bring about a visual collection of my vision in sharing a love of fitness and yoga. We always want to make it look fun and accessible to be active!
Please briefly share your fitness journey with us.
My fitness journey is one of love. It has all been about fostering self-love along with love for others. I started this journey exactly a year from now and it has grown into becoming an occupation.
We believe fitness + friendship = FUN! What is your favorite group fitness workout?
My favorite group fitness workout is a tie between Vinyasa Yoga and SoulCycle!
While working out is important, so is eating the right foods. What is your go-to pre-workout meal? How do you refuel after a workout?
My go-to pre workout meal is usually oatmeal and blueberries as I tend to workout in the morning. My after-workout fuel is a banana and/or peanut butter (sandwich, protein bar, anything!).
What is one item that is always in your gym bag?
My jump-rope is always in my gym bag! It is the perfect addition to intervals to keep the heart rate up.
What are your top 3 fitness Instagram accounts to follow?
Whoa, only three?! First favorite account to follow is Hannah Bronfman; I am always inspired by the many hats she wears and how she balances it all. My close second is Ally Love who is just as much of an inspiration. Last but not least has to be you guys at PRETTY GIRLS SWEAT! I love the positivity and community of girls and young women sweating together.
What is one thing people would be surprised to learn about you?
I am also going for my masters of social work and will eventually be pursuing my doctorate in Psychology!
What are your top three goals you hope to accomplish in life?
1. To get my doctorate degree.
2. To travel and teach yoga
3. To create a welcoming community embracing fitness
What does PRETTY GIRLS SWEAT mean to you?
PRETTY GIRLS SWEAT means a lot to me. I have followed this account since I was not even in fitness. It means a united community of girls that embraces each other’s fitness journeys in a way that is inexplicable. When more than two get together, there is such power in it!
