"when all you got to keep is strong
"...I [exercise] because if I don't, it all falls apart. And I exercise more for my mental stress than I do for my physical appearance. So I run, and I do weights."
"Throughout my career I followed an exercise program in order to maintain my safety and productivity while in space. Back on Earth, I now spend two hours at the gym several times each week. My exercise goal is to stay healthy and maintain an active lifestyle."
"It [exercise] is good for the head and soul and has given me more balance overall.”
"When on-going tasks act like ping pong balls bouncing around in my head from mommy duties to work commitments to household tasks, it is all the more reason to get out and move. A brisk walk helps slow or stop the busyness of life and the ping pong balls begin to settle."
"Gotta keep it movin'
"I workout because it is my hour to find balance in my life and focus on me."
"I move to help keep my mental health in balance. In dealing with depression it is easy to get sucked into the darkness. Making a commitment to fitness, along with leading others in fitness classes has helped me in all aspects of life. My inspiration is in seeing others enjoy fitness and my goal is to inspire even one person to take steps in their fitness regime."
"When my routine is sapped, holiday commitments are high and the new year is fast approaching, there is nothing better than to get into the saddle. The saddle keeps me grounded. And once my legs start to pedal, I get back into my groove."
