Valentine's Day is a day of love and sweets. Chocolate and candies and more chocolate galore! What I like to do on Valentine's Day, is make my boyfriend a homemade treat.

Growing up I was always an athlete. I played pretty much every sport under the sun before zeroing in on volleyball and playing year-round competitively for several years. When I went to college, I was tired and burnt out so I picked up a new sport- rowing. After a couple of years, I was having trouble with my lower back and I gave up organized sports all together. For the next two years, I exercised sporadically and enjoyed college life.
I have always liked practicing kickboxing because of the amazing full body workout, the camaraderie between participants, and the stress relief of being able to strike something without having limitations on speed or power!

Every so often our non-dominant hand is a guest to the unilateral day to day activities of the other hand, but this is usually the case only when the dominant hand has better things to do, or when we are consciously trying to make use of the weak limb/hand in the gym because of muscular neglect.
People often assume, because I am a personal trainer, group fitness instructor and dance teacher, that I have always been a “model student” where health and exercise are concerned. That assumption sort of makes me collapse into hysterical laughter.
Being healthy is all about feeling healthy. It's all about making choices that make you feel good on the inside and out. A large part of fitness is making a commitment. I am honored to join the Anytime Health blog team. My personal blog documents my collegiate lifestyle through nutritious eats and exercise. Though I am not a fitness expert or registered dietitian, I do consider myself a fitness guru and health fanatic! I love experimenting with abstract ingredients in the kitchen and the gym is like my second home!
