What do you do for a living (school/job)?
I work at a physical/occupational therapy clinic as a tech. I attend the University of Florida and majoring in a Bachelors of Science in Athletic Training.
Do you think about your health?
I think about my health constantly, especially since I am not entirely happy with my level of health.
How do you feel about the way that you eat?
My nutrition can always improve. I have a tendency to bury my stress in late night binges.
How active were you when you were younger and what activities did you do for exercise? Did you have P.E.?
My childhood was FILLED with activity. You would never find me inside. I spent everyday playing basketball, flag football, riding my bike, or climbing trees. Now for exercise I run, bike, rollerblade and lift weights.
What is your dream in life? Are you working towards that dream?
My dream in life is to build a career and enjoy every second of it. I am very much working towards that dream. I have been for the last three years.
How stressful is your life right now?
If my life wasn't stressful something would be wrong. (Extremely stressful)
How do you cope with your stress?
I try my best to use exercise as my outlet for stress or reaching out to my parents to vent. Other times food is involved.
Do you know how to exercise properly?
I think I know how to exercise properly. I'm sure improvement could also be used in that category as well.
Do you know how to eat healthy?
Yes I know how to eat healthy in a general aspect. Not entirely comfortable or knowledgeable on counting micros and macros.
What changes do you want to see in the health industry?
I would like to see more opportunities to try new things. I am a huge fan of obstacle course races and would love an "American Ninja Warrior" style gym in my area that I can go to no matter the time of day. And will not break the bank as I am on a very limited budget going to a big name school.
Do you think being healthy will ever be at the forefront in society?
I have high hopes that America will wake up and realize how extremely unhealthy this country is. I find it sad that little kids at my son's elementary school are already obese. They are being set up for a disadvantage at such an early age.
