NMF: Has fitness always been a major part of your life or was there a catalyst/point in your life when you made it more of a focus and priority?
TB: I have alway been active ever since I could remember. I never liked to just stay at home and do nothing. I always had to be moving because I thought active games were a blast! Now I stay active to stay healthy and fit. However, I still find it fun :)
NMF: What are a few of your go-to healthy snacks/drinks that help keep you on the straight and narrow?
TB: 1. Cucumbers and bell peppers with different kinds of vinegars (my sister makes it for me).
2. Sunflower seed butter, bananas, cacao nibs, chia seeds, and agave on eziekel bread.
NMF: How do you train your mind and stay motivated?
TB: I made myself a dream board of all my future goals and dreams. Whenever I feel like I am feeling lazy I just have to remind myself why I am training and practicing. Looking at my dream board is very inspiring to me!
NMF: How do you change your body?
TB: Eat clean and exercise frequently!
NMF: What are your fitness favorites?
TB: My favorite exercises are running, jump squats, planks, medicine ball throws, and push-ups.
