This Week: Jessie Hartman

Are you a Pittsburgh native? If not, what brought you to the Pittsburgh area? If so, why are you still here? Yes, born and raised!

What are your three favorite movement activities in the Pittsburgh area? Crossfit, running/hiking outdoors and kayaking

Describe the best vacation you’ve ever taken? Where did you go? What movement activities did you include? I would have to say my favorite vacation (so far) was to Hawaii in 2014. At that time of my life, I was training for and running half marathons so I would get up early every morning to run Kailua Beach at sunrise. It was absolutely amazing. I also did several day hikes around the island, standup paddle boarding in the ocean and snorkeling. Truly one of my all-time best trips ever!

What is your favorite pre- or post-workout snack? Pre-workout I enjoy fruit and nut butter and post-workout I always try to get in some protein and carbohydrates, so usually a protein shake with almond milk and a banana.

What is your favorite thing to eat in Pittsburgh? Note: it does not need to be healthy. Pittsburgh has so many great foodie spots this is hard to pick! Mediterra Cafe or Gaucho Parrilla Argentina.

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 would really like to try jiu-jitsu!

What do you think is the biggest obstacle to getting people to move more? Talking with folks about getting more active, the number one reason they give for not including movement is “not enough time.” I understand life gets busy and schedules can be challenging to work around, but I believe that you have to make time for the things you want to do-like getting up and working out or getting to the gym after work. Create the habit and you’ll find the time!

What do you feel is the most adventurous movement activity you’ve ever done? Probably MMA/boxing. I was so nervous to try it and I ended up absolutely loving it!

What is your favorite recovery or self-care practice? Foam rolling, stretching and massage.

What is your favorite spot in Pittsburgh? (Bonus points if it is a “hidden gem”) Peters Lake Park

This Week: Kristin – @4run2

Are you a Pittsburgh native? If not, what brought you to the Pittsburgh area? If so, why are you still here? Yes. I grew up here, but moved away for college and a couple years after. I’ve been back for about 7 years. Most of my family is here and I love being close to them.

What are your three favorite movement activities in the Pittsburgh area? Running, rock climbing, mountain biking

Describe the best vacation you’ve ever taken? Where did you go? What movement activities did you include? Patagonia. My now husband and I did an awesome hiking trip in Argentina and Chile about 2 years ago. The scenery was gorgeous, the hikes were challenging, but fun, and the food was amazing! My favorite part of the trip was an overnight mountaineering trip we did with a guide.

What is your favorite pre- or post-workout snack? Pre- apples, post- Diet Dr Pepper and pretzels

What is your favorite thing to eat in Pittsburgh? Note: it does not need to be healthy. French Fries

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? My husband and I are hoping to bike the GAP trail from PGH to DC next year! I would also love to do a dog trail race with my pup!

What do you think is the biggest obstacle to getting people to move more? Either motivation or finding something they enjoy doing. It can be hard to stay motivated if you are not seeing the results you want to see or if you are not enjoying the activity. I love to run. I love being outside and I use that hour as me time. A lot of people hate running and see it more as torture than a fun activity.

What do you feel is the most adventurous movement activity you’ve ever done? Lead Rock Climbing

What is your favorite recovery or self-care practice? Recovery- sitting on the couch 😂. Self care- pedicures. Lately I’ve been doing a lot of at home pedicures/foot baths. Running does a lot of work to my feet and I try and keep them looking decent.

What is your favorite spot in Pittsburgh? (Bonus points if it is a “hidden gem”) Frick Park

This Week: Special Feature: the Labs of FitLabPGH, Maggie and Puddin

With many people working from home and/or practicing physical distancing, the dogs of FitLabPGH, Maggie and Puddin, wanted to offer their advice on how to cope and to make movement part of your current lifestyle.

What are your three favorite movement activities that don’t require a fitness facility? We NEVER go to a fitness facility. Are we missing out on something? We like to hike with our human staff in Mingo Creek Park. We enjoy exploring the new trails at FitLabPGH HQ; the teeter totter is pretty cool to. And we LOVE to wrestle…in the backyard…in the living room…at the top of the stairs…the humans object when we do this.

Any advice for humans who wish they could travel right now? Take a car ride to the park. We love to ride in the Jeep.

How about advice for humans who aren’t able to enjoy dining out in restaurants right now? Our staff members have our food delivered to the house…can’t the humans out there have their food delivered???

Any suggestions for humans who are bored at home? Puddin: Let me take this one, Maggie. When I’m bored, I chew things…kitchen mats, dog beds, blankets…I know this makes the humans mad, but it’s quite enjoyable.

Maggie: Don’t listen to the puppy. No need to destroy your home when you’re bored…just take a nap…or run circles around the yard. Our humans seem to enjoy reading books too.

What’s your advice to humans who miss their gyms and fitness facilities? See our answer above about favorite home movement activities! With a few toys and a little imagination, you humans can get your exercise fix at home!

What is your favorite home recovery or self-care practice? This one is easy, and all of you humans should add these two items to your daily agenda: 1) Make sure you get enough sleep! Worried that you haven’t slept enough? Make time for a nap. 2) Take time for daily mobility work – a couple of moves to try: downward-facing-dog and snake (lie on your back and “slither”/wriggle from side-to-side).

Any last thoughts for humans Working from Home? Appreciate the little things, like taking a nap in the sun, barking at the neighbors, or watching Mr. Squirrel and Marvin the Chipmunk try to get to the birdfeeder.
