I am a high-intensity individual when it comes to working out

I am systematic and steady in my approach to working out and weight maintenance

1. If I were to take a fitness class, it would probably be a yoga class.

2. What role does nutrition play in your life right now?
I think about what I’m putting in my body and if I really need it. The junk food of my youth is gone. I find myself conscious of what food is good and bad for me.

Rich Severson

In the section below, our respondents were asked to check as many of the boxes that apply to their fitness type:

Finally getting serious about my health and how I look and feel

Have always aspired to be physically fit (I have aspired to, but certainly didn’t follow through)

Have trouble finding the time to fit fitness into my day

I have always made fitness a priority

I wish I could be more consistent with my workouts

I feel out of sorts when I haven’t worked out

I am a high-intensity individual when it comes to working out

I am systematic and steady in my approach to working out and weight maintenance

I am excited when it’s time to work out (All the time? No way, but on most occasions.)

1. If I were to take a fitness class, it would probably be a cardio class.

2. What role does nutrition play in your life right now?
It plays a major role. Since starting the exercise classes I have given up soda altogether. I used to drink upwards of four sodas per day. Now none. My alcohol consumption has also been regulated to special occasions only. No more chips, candy bars, or unhealthy snacks of any kind. My eating habits have changed dramatically for the good. While I can’t say that I have become a health nut, I can say that my eating habits are more centered around a healthy diet.

3. A diet splurge for me would be a:
A large steak with a plate load of mashed potatoes and several cold beers—and a large dish of chocolate ice cream.
