Kansas City, Missouri
Hi everybody, I work from home which means I'm entirely too close to the fridge and can find lots of excuses for not going to the gym. My husband loves Oreos but wouldn't touch a them if I slapped a fat free sticker on the package and my child would kill for mac & cheese. In spite of them, I still manage to find treats and cook meals that are healthy and incorporate a wide range of...

Goffstown, New Hampshire
Certified as a Personal Trainer by the NSCA since 1999. Love to work with people who need help in losing weight and learning how to exercise. I was a 'weekend warrior' for 15 years out of college and in the insurance industry and I was getting fat! So I took myself out of that situation and lost weight and became fit and wanted to do the same for others. I've always been active with hiking,...

I'm in the 5th year of my graduate study at Stanford, working on a PhD in Mechanical Engineering. My research is on electric space propulsion devices.

I'm a purple belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, and have been training for about 5 years now.    I decided a few years ago that I had to make a change.

I lost 40 lbs within the first 6...

I enjoy mixed martial arts (MMA). I used to play football and wrestle in high school. After high school, I played soccer for a while but came back to wrestling.... then I got lazy... real lazy and became a foodie.

Racquetball woman!!! I work out everyday -- 4 times a week I play racquetball, 3 times a week. I kick box, turbo box and take a strong class.

I love yoga. Wednesday nights, you'll find me in yoga class, blissful and building my strength, balance, and focus. I have a lot of flexibility already but am adding to it. I (used to but since having baby 2 haven't been taking it) take Muay Thai kickboxing to tone up and add cardio to my exercise roster. I walk everywhere, not only because I can't drive (LOL) but because it's good (not...
