LFT: How long have you been working out and how did you get into it?
Tara: I have made working out a priority since July of last year, so about 8 months. I got into it for several reasons: I got engaged (sweating for the wedding), had a great fit friend that was willing to help me/workout with me, and my health needed it!
LFT: What is your workout routine like?
Tara: I like a variety- so I typically mix my week up with strength/ cardio classes at the gym, running on the treadmill at home or outside, and a few jazzercise classes a week.
LFT: Cardio vs Strength which is your favorite?
Tara: Really just depends on the day-when I first started working out cardio was my favorite, but the stronger I get the more I enjoy strength training.
LFT: What is your favorite exercise?
Tara: I love a relaxing run outside on a beautiful day with friends.
LFT: What is your least favorite exercise?
LFT: When you aren’t working or at the gym, what do you like to do for fun?
Tara: Watching the Chicago Cubs, traveling, and I became an aunt for the first time to the most beautiful baby girl this past month, so I have a feeling that’s where a lot of my free time will be going.
LFT: What is your favorite thing about Lacon Fitness and Tan?
Tara: The instructors/Employees are so friendly, knowledgeable, and very helpful. The other members- I’ve met some awesome people to workout with me because of LFT. I also really love the variety/times of the classes that are offered throughout the week, that way everyone can find something that works for their schedule and fitness level.
LFT: What is your favorite “Cheat food”?
Tara: CHIPS-just ask my fiancé. His nickname for me is Chip.
