1. How long have you been at B-Fit?
I first came to B-Fit in 2012, but I’m basically the prodigal son.
2. What changes have you made in regards to your nutrition and exercise, and why did you make those changes? What results have you encountered from those changes?
In the last year, I’ve finally started watching what I eat. I don’t have celiac disease, but I do eat gluten-free about 70% of the time. For me, it’s an easy way to make sure I’m eating moderately healthy. I also don’t watch what I eat at all when I’m on vacation.
With that, I don’t drink beer much at all anymore. Though I have a daily glass of red wine…or three.
Finally to nutrition, I intermittent fast 5 days a week and my morning workouts are done fasted if under two hours.
The major changes I’ve done to my exercise are getting a coach for running/triathlon + joining back up at B-Fit for boot camp. Boot camp is the best — none of that pesky lifting stuff. 🙂
I’ve seen a lot of nice improvements. Instead of a big drop in weight, I’ve gradually shed ~ 14lbs over the course of a year. I’m not looking for diets or fast loss exercise plans. I just do what I enjoy and find something that’s sustainable. In addition, I’m back into clothes that haven’t fit me for a very long time, and I think I’ve PR’d every distance I’ve raced.
3. What are your current and future nutrition plans?
Continue doing what I’m doing. It’s working and as stated before I’m after long-lasting results. Discovering cauliflower pizza was a game-changer too. I also eat A LOT of Buffalo-style food including grilled hot wings. The final thing is, I stopped focusing on what I CAN’T have. Eating gluten-free primarily gives me a lot of options for food I really like.
I should eat more green stuff. I might try to add that in but my “salads” tend to be heavy on meat and cheese but really light on veggies.
4. What would you tell others about the training and community atmosphere at B-Fit?
It’s the best. A ton of like-minded people and they all push each other to be better. Bob, Bev, and Brandon are all fantastic trainers and great resources for questions. As well as being great friends.
I’m not sure when they added MyZone, but I love it as an accountability tool as well as a source of fun and friendly competition.
5. What is your favorite and least favorite exercise?
Favorite – The Sauna (or box jumps)
Least Favorite – anything with a barbell.
