What brought you into enduraLAB in the first place? My husband (Cody Martin) kept telling me that I would love it. He bought me the Elements 3-Day Mentorship Program for Mother's Day, and now I'm an eL junkie.
How did you exercise before enduraLAB? Cycling (road), swim, yoga, barre, videos, hiking...used to do a lot of triathlons pre-kids.
What healthy changes have you made since starting enduraLAB? Honestly, I forgot what a difference weightlifting makes in strength. I was mostly doing bodyweight work outs with maybe some light weights, but I've enjoyed getting back in the groove of (attempting) to lift some heavier weights, and am inspired by the super-fit ladies at the LAB.
Tell us what you do outside of the LAB? I'm a National Account Manager for Rubbermaid Commercial Products. I’ve been with the company for almost 17 years in a variety of sales and marketing roles, and even got the opportunity to live and work in Brazil and Mexico.
How have you grown as an athlete since joining the LAB? Even though I almost passed out (Coach Caroline can attest), I was excited to hit the 20-minute marker for the mini-triathlon during hell week. The competitor came out a bit...which is a bit subdued in this life stage.
What is a goal you have set for yourself in the next 6 months? The next year? Well, Coach Roman recruited me for the 28-Day Challenge and since I'll be in Miami/Chicago/NC for work this month, that will be quite the challenge to get those work outs in. That's my immediate goal!!
What is your favorite enduraLAB event? The Buds-n-Suds monthly community workouts.
What advice would you have for a new person starting at enduraLAB? Sign up with a coach to ensure technique is correct. I realized I was squatting funky before Coach Caroline got me back on track.
Favorite cheat meal/restaurant in D/FW? All day every day....Ellerbe Fine Foods. The bread pudding is divine.
