What keeps you motivated to stay active?
I am extremely self-motivated by the benefits that staying fit and strong brings to my life. I find working out and being active a great stress reliever, mood booster and fun! I genuinely enjoy being active and pushing my physicality to its limits.
What is a typical workout like for you?
My fitness routines are constantly evolving. One constant is that I prefer to do things that use multiple muscle groups. I have long been a fan of interval training. For the past two years, I have been taking two to three yoga classes per week and working at advancing my yoga practice skills. Living in Los Angeles, I take full advantage of the great hiking opportunities and make hikes a mainstay of my cardio workouts. I was also able to call on my high school track team skills, when I participated in the Nautica Malibu Triathlon raising money for Children’s Hospital Los Angeles’ pediatric cancer department, by doing the running portion of the event.
Do you have a training partner?
I don’t have one person in particular in terms of a training partner. As I mentioned, I have been enjoying my yoga practice, so as that tends to be in a class setting, I do feel a strong sense of belonging to my yoga community. My boyfriend, Bryton James (Devon Hamilton, The Young and the Restless) and I frequently go on long hikes together. We love hiking in the mornings to enjoy some time together, enjoy the beautiful views and catch some spectacular sunrises!
