Q: You've been donned as one of the "New Faces of Fitness." What's it like to hold that title? What are your fitness goals for 2013?
A: Working with Jane Fonda was an absolute honor. When she called Karena and I the 'New Faces of Fitness,' my brother said Jane Fonda had passed the torch. This was the moment I realized what I had been working towards my entire life was now embraced by so many other women as an outlet to better their lives! Tone It Up is our opportunity to leave this world a better place, and it's this fact that motivates me to succeed in everything I do, every day!
My current fitness goals for 2013 include getting wedding ready!
Q: You, along with best friend Karena, are the founders of Tone It Up. Why did you want to open a fitness studio together?
A: We started Tone It Up because we wanted to share health and fitness with a larger audience than we were reaching with one-on-one training. We started out with a YouTube channel as a way to help women better themselves through fitness and nutrition; Tone It Up has now grown into more than we've ever imagined! This community of hundreds of thousands of women encourage, inspire and motivate each other to reach their own goals each and every day. And it's taken on its own identify as an outlet for women looking to better themselves by living the life of their dreams!
Q: Oakley was created for world-class athletes, those who see the limits of possibility as just another challenge. What is it about the Oakley brand that you connect with most? And how do you embody this mantra?
A: If world-class athletes can wear Oakley, then everyday women like ourselves can wear it too! Oakley empowers women to find their inner athlete; that's what we love about them.
Q: Why should a woman consider wearing Oakley Women's sunglasses?
A: We've been wearing Oakley sunglasses for years and there is absolutely no brand that compares. They're high quality, lightweight, versatile and offer the most beautiful styles and designs! They work so well for any outdoor activity or fitness routine because the polarized lenses cut out glare and the little details about them, which keeps them on, no matter our sport.
Q: As a busy woman running a business, you're always on the go. What's your favorite pair of Oakley Women's sunglasses to wear as you go from workout to meetings to photo shoots?
A: I love the Daisy Chains and I have a few pairs! My rose gold pair gets A LOT of wear. They're great for anything?bike rides, beach walks, around town and make me feel stylish no matter what I'm wearing! And they never fall off, even during intense workouts, which I love!
Q: What do you love best about Oakley Women's sunglasses?
A: With most sunglasses, I've always felt like I had to choose either function or style. If I want a beautiful pair, they don't usually work for a five-mile run, but with Oakley I have both, and that really simplifies things for me. I can wear my Daisy Chains during an intense hike, somewhere fancy for lunch with my fiancÚ or just out and about.
