FitLabPGH is a podcast about movement and movement opportunities in the Pittsburgh, PA area. Once a week we also highlight a FitLabPGH mover…someone who understands that movement is a lifestyle…not just an activity. The questions are lightly edited to allow for easy readability. Click FitLabPGH Features for more info if you want to be featured/know someone who should be featured.
This Week: Robert Treglia, From Fat to Somewhat Fit
Are you a Pittsburgh native? If not, what brought you to the Pittsburgh area? Yes
What are your three favorite movement activities in the Pittsburgh area? Biking, Hiking, and walking
Describe your fantasy movement-focused vacation…cost is not an object…where do you go and what do you do? I would love to go to Africa and go hiking
What is your go-to weekday breakfast? Your weekend breakfast? Weekday: Overnight oats or protein shakes. Weekend: Eggs, toast, and spinach
What is your favorite thing to eat in Pittsburgh? Note: it does not need to be healthy. Headwich from Fat Heads
What is the most unusual and/or challenging movement activity you’ve done? Would you do it again? I just got back into bike riding after 20 years. I only rode the bike a few times before I did 30 miles on the Montour Trail.
What movement activity/event are you looking forward to in the next year? I am doing the great pumpkin run in October. It’s a 5k where you can run carrying a pumpkin. If you finish with it, you get to keep the pumpkin.
Would you rather go scuba diving or skydiving? I am not allowed to skydive per my wife. So it would have to be scuba diving. However, I cannot swim either. So it would have to be shallow enough for me to walk the bottom.
What is your favorite recovery or self-care practice? I have started doing red light therapy at REDjuvenate
What is the one place visitors to Pittsburgh “must” see? West End Overlook. Everyone does the typical Mt Washington view. The West End Overlook I feel is a better view of the city.
