One of the things that most of us have in common is a fast-paced, hectic lifestyle.   The real estate business is no different—it includes odd hours and, at times, there are no days off!


One of the best ways I keep my mental acuity sharp and my physical stamina and energy levels high for my clients is by squeezing in regular and consistent workouts!   I love to mix a variety of things into my exercise routine and my motto is “Keep Moving!”


I enjoy swimming and fitness classes at the Trotter YMCA, I’m also a regular yogi at the Yogaworks studio on Woodway at Bering, and you’ll see me cycling the streets of Tanglewood through Memorial Park up the TC Jester Bike Path and all the way Downtown.   I strongly advocate incorporating exercise blocks if it’s 10-15 minutes or 15-30 minutes at a time!   Short walks, stretching and setting goals is so important!


Keep moving!!
