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: Jeter Joseph Campbell
Are you a Pittsburgh native? If not, what brought you to the Pittsburgh area? If so, why are you still here? No. I’m a southern dog. Born in Goldsboro, NC. Lived there for my first 3 years and then moved to the snowy north with my family.
What are your three favorite movement activities in the Pittsburgh area? walking my neighborhood, walking North Park and running away when I’m off my leash.
Describe the best vacation you’ve ever taken? Where did you go? What movement activities did you include? Topsail Island, NC. I love to run into the waves to fetch a tennis ball.
What is your favorite pre- or post-workout snack? Milkbone Minis (I’m watching my calories)
What is your favorite thing to eat in Pittsburgh? Note: it does not need to be healthy. McDonald’s French Fries or any french fry, really.
Do you have a movement activity on your “bucket list”? If not, what’s a movement activity/event you’re looking forward to in the next year? I’d like to run free on the field at Yankee Stadium. My name indicates that I love baseball and the Yankees so I’d love to have free reign to run the bases at Yankee Stadium.
What do you think is the biggest obstacle to getting people to move more? Weather, for sure. I don’t like the ice or salt on my paw pads!
What do you feel is the most adventurous movement activity you’ve ever done? Jumping in the ocean waves!
What is your favorite recovery or self-care practice? Napping in the sun.
