39, kettlebell training and combat conditioning expert, Philadelphia, Pa.
Fitness philosophy: Fitness should be based on pleasure and joy. Pleasure makes everything easier, including exercise, movement, and play. It's simple enough to understand and we all realize this, but for some reason we've been brainwashed into thinking that training and movement has to be about suffering to be effective. This is absolutely not true. Pleasure makes everything easier. Easy is productive.

Ski slopes or sandy beach? Sandy beach. I prefer mountains, but I can't ski. If it can it be hiking snow-covered mountains, I'll take the mountains.
