Any new group fitness classes you're obsessed with right now?
"I'm a fitness class junkie. My favorite right now is Barry's Bootcamp. It just opened in Boston and while yes, I'm a trainer there, I take class about four times a week. I also love total-body Spinning workouts. In Boston, I go to Recycle Studio. It's similar to SoulCycle, but our own local version. It was started by a former New Yorker who missed SC classes and was tired of waiting for Boston to catch up to the trends so she opened her own."

Fill in the blank: If you see ____ in a gym, you freak out because you're so excited.

Not that I'm training for an Ironman, but seriously, those athletes are inspiration for any athletic event. If I need to lose a few pounds or firm up, 'Change is uncomfortable' or 'I am worth it' are my go-tos."
