How did your Ultimate journey begin?
My Ultimate life began years ago... years before it was even conceived of... when I met Paula and Vlad in their previous life. I've been training with them for over 15 years and can't believe I ever trained without them. It has only gotten better since they opened Ultimate.
What’s the most rewarding part of crushing a workout at the gym?
I love the high-five at the end of my session, taking a shower and grabbing a protein bar in the Ultimate fridge and then a relaxing 10-minute walk home.
What have you learned about balancing health and wellness with you career?
I've learned that if I don't exercise six times a week that I get stressed and feel a sense of withdrawal. I've clearly become addicted to exercising and know no other life. Exercise has enabled me to exist with much more ease in a stressful business environment.
What keeps you coming through our doors?
The members. The place. The comfort. The equipment. The snacks. The staff. The management. The trainers. The general environment and energy. Everything is great.
A training session with Vlad or Sam and the odd one with Paula when she can gather the patience to put up with me.
Go-to/favourite meal post workout?
I've been really trying to be more vegetarian - I think there's a range - and have started taking veggie protein shakes. They're grrrrreat :-( I do love walking over to Bar Centrale and grabbing a healthy soup (I sound old but I'm just trying to be healthy) and glass of red, or to Black Camel for a veggie sandwich.
What’s in your gym bag?
My boxing gloves. Boxing / jiu jitsu mouth guard. Deodorant. Clean shorts and fitness shirt. And of course a fresh pair of underwear and socks. Oh. And a little bit of weed or weed candy :-)
Any advice to those who haven’t been to Ultimate?
