This Week: Nala Rae

Where do you consider “Home”? North East, Pennsylvania

What are your three favorite movement activities? Jumping to catch my ball, running with the hooman cousins, and protecting mine house from the stray cats!

Describe the best vacation you’ve ever taken? Where did you go? What movement activities did you include? The hoomans took me to some strange big house once. There were other hoomans and they threw some circle thing for me! There was another dog there too, but she was old and wasn’t happy about how fast I was! The only downside to this place was it took 4 hours to get there! That’s a lot of running for this metal thing we were in!

What is your favorite pre- or post-workout snack? Peanut butter on the bananas is the best!

What is your favorite thing to eat? Note: it does not need to be healthy. Peanut butter and those cold sweet potatoes! Thems are yummy in my furry tummy!

Do you have a movement activity on your “bucket list”? If not, what’s a movement activity/event you’re looking forward to in the next year? I’d love it if my hooman would let me run in the mountains, but she says we don’t have any that’s easy to get to.

What do you think is the biggest obstacle to getting people to move more? A leash really holds you back, somedays!

What do you feel is the most adventurous movement activity you’ve ever done? I once ran as fast as possible from a bee. I left my hooman because I was so scared. That was pretty crazy because I went to someone else’s door and I thought it was mine, until my hooman found me!

What is your favorite recovery or self-care practice? I love to bite frozen peanut butter out of my bone toy while the hooman does my hip therapies! Helps me to ignore her and I get food!

What is your favorite spot within an hour of where you are currently living? (Bonus points if it is a “hidden gem”) I had lots of fun working at this place my hooman’s dad kept calling Pet Supplies. I get to meet all the hoomans, while babysitting mine! She falls a lot, so I gots to be there to help her up or keep others away.

This Week: Lisa Boksenbaum

Where do you consider “Home”? I have moved a lot, searching for “Home.” I’m not sure that I’ve found it yet. I think home is where you feel a sense of connection and belonging. I’m currently living in the South Hills of Pittsburgh.

What are your three favorite movement activities? Hiking (or just walking on the rails-to-trails); yoga and/or pilates; suspension trainer/bodyweight workouts…but my goal for this summer is to move cycling in to the top 3

Describe the best vacation you’ve ever taken? Where did you go? What movement activities did you include? Tough choice! I’m going to go with a two week trip to London (part-work, part-vacation). I walked EVERYWHERE for sightseeing, museum visits, shopping…and tried out several local Pilates studios and other fitness facilities.

What is your favorite pre- or post-workout snack? Pre-workout snack: homemade energy bites (adapted from a recipe by Kathryn Budig in her book, Aim True). Post-workout depends on the intensity of the workout…sometimes trail mix, sometimes a piece of homemade biscotti.

What is your favorite thing to eat? Note: it does not need to be healthy. A tie: REALLY good ice cream (like Millie’s, which is made in Pittsburgh) or excellent bread, cheese, and wine

Do you have a movement activity on your “bucket list”? If not, what’s a movement activity/event you’re looking forward to in the next year? I have a few: Hiking tour of Scotland and Ireland; learn to ride a horse; and a Rim-to-Rim hike of the Grand Canyon.

What do you think is the biggest obstacle to getting people to move more? A combination of the misperception that movement needs to be expensive and/or complicated to be effective and a fear of trying something new

What do you feel is the most adventurous movement activity you’ve ever done? Hiking Camelback Mountain in AZ…followed by the Go Ape High Ropes Adventure Course in North Park (North Hills of Pittsburgh)…heights are not my favorite thing…

What is your favorite recovery or self-care practice? Massage (although I rarely do it), acupuncture, and snuggling with the cats and Labradors

What is your favorite spot within an hour of where you are currently living? (Bonus points if it is a “hidden gem”) The Montour Trail…not hidden, but definitely a gem….and the newly-cut MTB trails at FitLabPGH HQ

This Week: Hallie Buckel

Where do you consider “Home”? North East, Pennsylvania

What are your three favorite movement activities? Yoga, Walking with my dog, and Playing with my niece and nephew

Describe the best vacation you’ve ever taken? Where did you go? What movement activities did you include? I went on a trip to Carlsbad, California, a few years ago. I walked to the beach and back every morning. I am a photographer, so I would do photo shoots with my cousin and on our walks everyday I would go down trails we found and take photos of the wildlife there. I tried my best to do a workout every night I could, on the beach. I remember the sound of the waves and the dolphins in the water being so soothing as was doing my physical therapy.

What is your favorite pre- or post-workout snack? My favorite post-workout snack is definitely my vegan strawberry banana smoothie.

What is your favorite thing to eat? Note: it does not need to be healthy. My favorite thing to eat has to be vegetarian chili over pasta. It is not the healthiest thing, but it is so comforting to sit and eat with your family after a long day!

Do you have a movement activity on your “bucket list”? If not, what’s a movement activity/event you’re looking forward to in the next year? The one thing I pray I will get to do one day is go on a hike at Moraine Lake in Canada. The view is gorgeous, from what I’ve seen, and it would be an incredible moment.

What do you think is the biggest obstacle to getting people to move more? A lot of individuals struggle to move more because they can’t afford to go to the gym. They feel that without a gym they don’t have the resources to workout. What so many people don’t understand is if you have room to sit or lay on the floor, you are able to do so many things. I don’t go to the gym and I am able to do yoga every morning and night, and I manage to fit in my physical therapy during the afternoon. All is done in my yard or my bedroom floor. There are so many options that you can do to keep moving that don’t have to be done in a gym!

What do you feel is the most adventurous movement activity you’ve ever done? I once went on a hike through 16 mile crick, I did not hike the whole thing, and at the end of the hike I climbed an old bridge. My muscles were not happy with my climb at the end, but it was so fun!

What is your favorite recovery or self-care practice? The thing that feels amazing to recover after a hard day or a week of activities is a warm bath. Add in your favorite tunes and some essential oils and you’ve got the perfect relaxation time.

What is your favorite spot within an hour of where you are currently living? (Bonus points if it is a “hidden gem”) Every Summer my family and I usually go on a hike through Jake’s Rocks in Warren, Pa. There is a lookout with an amazing view of the Allegheny River and the large rocks throughout are so fun to climb!

This Week: Ben Reuter

Where do you consider “Home”? Home is what you make of it/where your safe place is. Currently ChezR, which is located in the Pittsburgh area

What are your three favorite movement activities? Hiking/trail running with my labradors, mtn biking and gravel biking/fire road riding

Describe the best vacation you’ve ever taken? Where did you go? What movement activities did you include? I don’t know if it is the best, but one of the best was a few days in Salida, Colorado to visit a friend/mentor and his wife. We averaged 4-5 hours of movement a day. Probably the highlight was being able to summit my first 14er – Mt. Shavano. The most memorable vacation, or a combination of work as the medical director and “play” – for a number of years I was fortunate enough to go on the Georgia Games Torch Run- 7+ days of running and biking throughout the state of Georgia promoting the Georgia Games- best memory was drafting behind a police car going up over the bridge to Saint Simons Island on a Friday rush-hour when the sheriff closed down one entire lane of traffic 🙂 thumbs up

What is your favorite pre- or post-workout snack? Pre-work out – espresso. Post-workout: ice cold water and something salty if the workout was long

What is your favorite thing to eat? Note: it does not need to be healthy. Pizza; espresso; very, very good quality bread

Do you have a movement activity on your “bucket list”? If not, what’s a movement activity/event you’re looking forward to in the next year? Pittsburgh to DC on the Rails-to-Trails in 3 to 4 days and San Juan hut tour in Colorado

What do you think is the biggest obstacle to getting people to move more? Fear…of what other people will think of them or that people will judge them.

What do you feel is the most adventurous movement activity you’ve ever done? Probably the first time I went white water rafting. It was the first time I realized that there was something bigger than me that was in control (i.e., the water)

What is your favorite recovery or self-care practice? Sleep

What is your favorite spot within an hour of where you are currently living? (Bonus points if it is a “hidden gem”) There is a spot in Mingo Creek Park in Washington County, Pennsylvania that has a section of trails through a group of maple trees… It is absolutely phenomenal in the fall – almost as good as an Aspen Grove in Colorado
