Cycling… One of my fitness passions

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
