How were you introduced to NorCal Strength and Conditioning?
John Fragoso…and I learned about John via Fleet Feet (Thanks John! )
Not sure how to answer this. I am just gonna say what I like:
Rope climb, lunges, overhead lifts, rowing, push ups, & most anything involving the rings and gymnastics.
I have always wanted to…..
Go to Egypt! Have horses again on my own land, sky dive, learn Italian – really, live and study Italian for a bit in Italy. Have my own rockin’ food garden (veggies, herbs, fruit trees etc.), be lean, strong and fit.
One word people use to describe me:
Hmmmm- it’s been a while since I heard this but something like – strong (in character) I think I’ve heard that one the most.
Outside of the gym I like to:
Dance!!!!!! Meditate, communicate w/ friends & family (phone, email, FB etc.) hike, love my dog, watch movies, and eat! I also love listening to live music of any kind, drink coffee, work at my job, and travel anywhere especially internationally!
Three things you would ALWAYS find in my fridge:
Veggies, eggs, oil
Something nobody knows about me or would be surprised to know about me:
I’ve seen Elvis, I speak German and taught German-high school and college, I live on 16 acres in the woods. I can get REALLY drunk. Most of my friends have at some point seen this side of me . I traveled to the Nevada Desert with no plan or destination just headed that direction and fasted for 10 days on my own camping out near an Indian reservation. I built a sweat lodge and sat in a cave for two days watching the sun go by and the moon go by. I traveled to the middle East by myself (Amman, Jordan) the year after 9/11 to meditate … and more …but some things I don’t want everyone to know
Favorite physical activity outside of NorCal Strength and Conditioning:
Dancing – I do it full on! Hiking with my doggie, skiing, oh DUH! SEX!
Favorite places to eat in Chico:
Raw Bar, Cafe Coda, Sin of Cortez, Grilla Bites
The song that gets me pumped to work out:
GONE by Montgomery Gentry (a lot of rocking songs by MG)
Save a Horse Ride a Cowboy – Big & Rich
She’s Country – Jason Aldean
Proudest accomplishment so far (in the gym)?
6 month goals:
5 legit pull ups, good & confident running speed, to lean out, a 10 sec. REALLY good L-Sit – feet up high above the bars.
If you could invite ANYBODY (currently alive or not) over for dinner, who would you invite? Why?
Well, Jesus would be cool – I’m not a Christian or even religious but he was a super cool dude! Absolutely. He’d be easy to host – so loving and accepting and I know I’d feel awesome in his presence. Just his being here would be a blessing and healing.
Favorite work out attire:
What I wear – uhhh sweat pants that have a nice cut, tighter T-shirt that forms to my body preferably with a little cleavage, and a sports bra. Workout clothes that are not over the top (bright colors-look at me etc.) but are feminine.
