Why are you taking the Walk The Walk Challenge?
Because Bobby DeMuro is a very charismatic guy who gets people, including me, excited about exercise!!
What do you hope to get out of it?
I want to help raise awareness that a simple hour-long walk a day can change your life, your attitude, and your waistline!
What’s your strategy to win?
I’m putting treadmills in the newsroom, the studio, home and under my desk at WBTV!
What’s your advice for people trying to get more active?
Start simple! Having too big of a goal can cause burnout, and disappointment. If you have big dreams, that’s great! But keep the challenge you’re putting your body through to one it can handle. Build consistently towards that goal!
Why should followers support you and NoFizzUSA during the event?
I believe that grassroots efforts grow into mammoth movements, just like NoFizzUSA did… people were passionate about changing the future! If our “Walk the Walk” competition prevents one child from the health risks childhood obesity presents, then every step will have been worth it!
