Q: Is there a driving force behind your healthy lifestyle? Was it a person in your life, a certain event, were you brought up in a healthy environment? What makes you a healthy individual?
A: I am a goal oriented person. Once I set a goal, I do all I can to reach it. I played sports in High School and have carried on that lifestyle into my adult life. I sign up for several races and usually one other major physical activity each year.
Q: What activities do you engage in to reduce stress?
A: I run, cycle and lift weights daily for a balanced mind and body. During the summer we take bike rides with the kids or play with them at the park.
Q: How would you encourage another person to pursue a healthy lifestyle?
A: Sign up for something...and tell everyone you know about it! You're more likely to stick with it if you have people holding you accountable. Another great way is to sign up for a walk/run through a charity and raise money. You'll help an organization as well as yourself. Join a run or cycling club or get involved in the GVSU pedometer challenge to get started.
