"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."
"A personal exercise program allows me to live my life to the fullest. Healthy living provides me with an advantage in my work, sports and social life. I am mentally sharper and at my physical best when fit and healthy."
