Lorna Jane Clarkson.
An hour of strength training. It makes me feel powerful and capable for the rest of my day.
Moment I fell in love with fitness:
When that first endorphin rush hit me.
Favorite workout shoes:
Best fitness-wear staples:
A good sports bra and supportive tights that flatter my shape. I personally love Lorna Jane’s Pammy bra for its adjustable straps, removable padding and unbelievable fit. My go-to tight would have to be the Lorna Jane Amy tight. It has a soft, adjustable waistband, flattering panel lines and a zip pocket for convenience.
I stay inspired by...
Getting out and trying new things. I have mood boards all over my home, and I’ve been collecting inspirational sayings, images, and mantras my whole life. It’s important to live a creative life to make creativity happen.
Favorite hair accessories:
A great visor or cap. I’m loving our vegan leather cap right now.
I couldn’t live without my iPhone. I use it to play music during my workouts and for the Lorna Jane Now Move It app to keep me on track.
On my workout playlist…
I keep plenty of uplifting and inspiring tunes. I still can’t get enough of Pharrell’s ‘Happy.’
Most unexpected item in my gym bag:
Dog treats! I have them with me everywhere I go because my dog, Roger, is always by my side.
Favorite way to hydrate:
Water, every time!
Favorite post-workout fuel:
A smoothie that is packed with protein.
Fave quickie workout:
I’m a fan of the 15-minute workout. I have a treadmill and a cross trainer at home, so I’ll do one minute relaxed and one minute as fast as I can, alternating back and forth.
What Active Living means to me:
Active Living is the way that I live my life, and Move Nourish Believe is the daily practice that makes it achievable. If you make the commitment to MOVE your body every day, NOURISH from the inside out and BELIEVE anything is possible, living a more positive, fulfilling life is absolutely possible!
Personal fitness tip:
Do what you love and you’ll do it more often.
The women I meet every day who share their Active Living journeys with me, and the incredible way it has affected their lives and health through their daily commitment to Move, Nourish and Believe.
“Never, never, never give up.”
