New York, NY

Fitness Personality:

work hard/play hard, 26.2-er, gym rat

My Everyday Mantra:

Do things that scare you.

My BurnThis Moment:

Qualifying for Boston on my first marathon attempt.  I trained mostly with high intensity bodyweight circuits and proved to myself that you don’t need to run 40 miles a week to earn a respectable marathon time.  And taking the leap with Brian Gallagher and signing the lease for Throwback Fitness’ own dedicated studio.

Best Fit Tip:

Bring a buddy and make your workouts into games and competitions.  You’ll enjoy it a lot more.

Find Me Burning At:

Throwback Fitness, Outdoors

In My Gym Bag:

Short shorts, Jump Rope, Sweatbands, iPhone packed with old school jams and trance music.

Favorite Local Post-Burn Treat:

Bacon and Egg Sandwich from a local deli with a Peanut Butter/Banana/Chocolate Protein Shake.
