Welcome to Wellness Confidential, our quick-fire interview series where we ask hard-hitting (okay, entertaining) wellness questions, lightning round-style.
First thing I did when I woke up this morning
Tasted pastries at By Chloe. Most of my days start by tasting all the pastries at By Chloe—who can complain about dessert for breakfast, right?
The workout I’m currently obsessed with
Lifting weights at S10 Training by Stephen Cheuk.
My most memorable sweaty moment
My first Bikram yoga class at Bikram Yoga Herald Square. I knew it would be hot, but I wasn’t ready for just how hot! I learned quickly why people bring more than one towel.
The one place I’d never wear my yoga pants
I can’t think of a place. I wear yoga pants from business meetings to fancy dinners!
If I were a fruit or vegetable I’d be
Avocado. It’s my favorite food. You can add it to almost anything or just sprinkle with salt and eat with a spoon.
The last time I used my oven
Making hot apple cider with rum last Friday night—testing recipes for By Chloe!
I never make a smoothie without adding
Medjool dates. They add a natural sweetness and texture.
The one song that I’ve been playing on repeat
“Roses” by The Chainsmokers because it reminds me of one of my favorite SoulCycle classes with Akin.
My go-to spot for date night with my BF/GF/BFFs
Where I go when I need to be alone
The one wellness trend you’ll never see me try
I firmly believe that a woman can never have too many
Most people probably don’t know this about me, but
I’m a matchmaker. I love setting people up and have successfully paired quite a few couples!
My mantra of the moment
“But then again, maybe it’s just because you’re afraid.” I saw it on a Post-it at my entrepreneur friend Michael DuDell’s desk at WeWork.
