Peak Performance: At Work and Play
Last Updated 1 Year(s) ago
Q: What does a routine day at the Recreation and Wellness Center consist of for you?
I generally start every workout with a short run on the track and then either lift weights on the main floor, climb at the rock wall, or continue with a cardio workout. Cardio workouts usually consist of using the Jacobs Ladder machine, running intervals on the track, or a leg circuit for me.
Q: If you were a cartoon character, who would you be?
Sandy from SpongeBob
Q: We’ve heard your passion is “the great outdoors.” Tell us your favorite outdoor memory?
Last semester was a very academically challenging semester for me and in October some friends and I went up to Chattanooga to climb at Foster Falls. The leaves were at their peak color, the weather was amazing, and the company was great. It was a very relaxing weekend.
Q: Do you have any unique abilities?
I was on a unicycle team in elementary school. I’m also on Google maps riding a unicycle on Auburn’s campus in front of the science lab building.
Q: If you could be any piece of rental equipment from Auburn Outdoors, what would you be and why?
I would be a headlamp because they go on almost every adventure and get to see some beautiful places and people.
Q: What is your major and what do you like most about it?
Exercise Science. I want to be a physical therapist and I love that I will have a job where I am on my feet and moving around all day while also getting to help people through an injury.
Q: Are there any Rec Center hacks that you can share with us?
The Jacob’s Ladder machines are great if you don’t have a lot of time but want a hard, full body workout.
Q: If you could only eat three foods for the rest of your life, what would they be?
Spaghetti, Trader Joe’s Cookie Butter, and sweet potatoes.
Q: Finish this sentence: What was I thinking when…?
… I decided to start rock climbing. I am absolutely petrified of heights.
Q: What’s your favorite Auburn tradition?
I really enjoy singing the alma mater after football games.
