- Favorite Event/Fitness Discipline:Â My favorite class to teach would definitely be Zumba. It’s basically a party & a workout, all in one!Â Of the 3 triathlon disciplines, my favorite is the bike.Â The amount of miles you can cover in a short period of time is cool and keeps me going.
- Currently Training for:Â Right now, I have to take it a bit easier because of my pregnancy, but my current training goals are for an easy delivery, healthy baby and quick recovery, then losing all my post-baby weight of course!
- â€œMust doâ€ Fitness Routine:Â Even with my busy teaching schedule, I do Yoga at least once a weekÂ and love it.Â Not only is it ‘me’ time, but it helps with stretching, muscle soreness,Â strength and relaxation.Â I’ve learned to enjoy Hot Yoga which takes things just a bit further.
- Workout â€œmust haveâ€:Â Â I’m aÂ big sweat-er,Â so a towel in class is necessary and a hat while running/biking is required.
- Typical Pre-Race/Training/Workout Breakfast: Â I love toast with peanut butter. It’s a perfect balance of protein and carbs and gives me plenty of energy!
- Guilty post-workout/race pleasure: Â Anything sweet, chocolate, smoothie, etc…

- Favorite Healthy Go-to Snack:Â Apple with peanut butter, or carrot sticks with hummus
Lexiâ€™s Top Health Tip:
