Your favorite part about HICKIES

Dream vacation
Anywhere I have never been -- I travel to learn. Each different culture inspires me and broadens my perspective.

Favorite training technique
I love looking at a sparse gym or even a hotel room and improvising a super effective functional workout./p>

Favorite post-workout snack
After my workout I make a simple breakfast smoothie with my vegan Champion Naturals protein, green veggies and seasonal fruit. I throw in some extra goodies like bee pollen and coconut flakes for added health benefits and satisfying texture.

How did you get into fitness?
I begged my parents to put me into ballet at age 3! From there my passion for health, wellness and fitness never stopped growing. Those early roots in ballet taught me to always see movement as an art form. Over the years I have added many certifications (Pilates, Barre, Yoga and Pre & Post-Natal, Nutrition and Wellness Counseling to name a few) and I love to combine multiple disciplines to improve upon strength, stability, stamina, agility, coordination, etc.
