Hi friends! I hope your Tuesday has started off on a great note.
This morning has already kept me busy with teaching a 6 a.m. strength training class and covering a 1-on-1 personal training session. I’m on a short break before my next class, so I thought I’d pop in to chat while I inhale breakfast #1.

Since I had plenty of fun and lots of great eats over the weekend, I plan on tackling this 30 min. total body dumbbell circuit on my next break in between classes.
I seriously can’t get enough of these types of workouts lately. When I only have a half an hour to spare and don’t have time to shower afterwards, they are the short and not-so sweet way to go!
What Would You Ask Gabrielle Reece?
As some of you already know, I will be heading to Los Angeles, California to attend the IDEA BlogFest and World Convention next week! I am absolutely thrilled to get out there and enjoy a handful of days on the west coast.
Just like last year, I am looking forward to reconnecting with some blogging buddies and meeting new ones. I am excited to learn from fitness professionals and attend sessions given by some of the greatest names in the business.
Before the conference, however, I have been graciously presented with an opportunity to interview former Women’s Beach Volleyball League star and fitness icon Gabrielle Reece!
Gabby has been a huge inspiration on and off the pro beach volleyball court, and has used her fitness experience to create her own high-intensity explosive training and conditioning program, HIGHX powered by Lifeline.
Not only will Gabby be the keynote speaker for BlogFest 2015, but she will also be leading a session and workout. I’m so pumped to try it!
So, what would you like to ask Gabrielle Reece?
While I could stick to strictly fitness and volleyball questions, I thought it would be better to include more “real life” type of questions some of you might be wondering as well.
Here is what I’ve got so far:
• It looks like you and your husband do a great job keeping your family on the healthy track! Have your kids learned to love the healthy eating lifestyle?
• How often do you complete HIGHX workouts?
• So, you’ve competed professionally while 5 months pregnant! What tips would you give to pregnant women who are looking to stay fit but not overdo it?
• What is your favorite way to unwind or relax?
I wanted to cap out at five questions, so if you have something in particular you would love to know, feel free to share it in the comments section below.
I’m looking forward to sharing her answers with you soon!
So cool you get to interview Gabrielle. She is such an inspiration and a rockstar! I can’t wait to hear her responses : )
I absolutely love Gabby Reece!!!I’m so jealous! I would love to see a “Day in the Life” overview. What’s her daily eating and workout schedule generally like?
Good questions, thanks Betty!

Very cool! I would ask how she balances health and family life. Also just an update on her career pursuits etc. would be interesting.
Thanks for your questions Lauren!
How exciting! I live in the LA area in the Beach cities. Do you plan to explore around town or stay in the Downtown LA area only? Let me know if you will be near Manhattan Beach or Redondo beach, I would love to meet you!
I’m not sure yet! I might have a half day Wednesday and Sunday, but it depends! I would love to get out to the beaches 🙂
