Cycling has become one of my favorite pastimes, so you will often hear me speak about it on Workout Wednesdays.
Here is an excerpt of an interview that I did with Diatta Harris of Femme Fitale Fit Club that really highlights why I love the sport so much and how I got into it. (Click “interview” to see the entire article with photos)
FFFC: Please introduce yourself to our readers.
TB: I am a born-again athlete. I say that because I played sports throughout high school and most of college, fell off the wagon and found a love for health and fitness again through sports as an adult. As a Physical Therapist with certification as an Exercise, Nutrition and Lifestyle Coach, Personal training certification, one would not expect that I was obese, at one time weighing over 200 pounds, but I was. With Weight Watchers and my two fitness loves, cycling and Crossfit, I jokingly say that I went from fat to fit and haven’t looked back since. Most recently, I went on to become a Crossfit Level 1 Instructor and a Certified Wellness Coach. My passion is helping women achieve a lifestyle of fitness by exposing them to fun fitness activities through my organization, So Fit Ladies
FFFC: How and why did you get started riding?
TB: Actually, my dad started riding the year before I did when he turned 60. When he first told me he rode his bicycle 25 miles, I was like, “is there something wrong with your car?” Eventually, a friend of mine asked me to ride on the Silver Comet Trail (a paved path that leads from Georgia to Alabama). I rented a bike, we rode 25 miles and I was hooked! Within 2 weeks I purchased a bike and haven’t looked back since. Get the rest HERE
