Occupation: Partner Trainer with Camp Gladiator
Workout of choice: Any kind of circuit that incorporates running, jumping, and throwing. I used to train for the Olympics in the decathlon, so anything that incorporates the basic movements of the decathlon is fun and allows me to get a total body workout.
Favorite water activity: I love to surf! I miss the beaches of San Diego, but I'm looking forward to the NLand Surf Park opening!
What he's wearing:
Sonoma Hat ($25)
Bomber Floating Eyewear
JACO Bomb ($60)
Naples Santorini ($68)
Occupation: Fitness philanthropist and founder/owner of Melody DanceFit
Workout of choice: Dance. It’s the most fun workout because it challenges your mind, body, and spirit all at once. It allows you to get lost and forget you're even working out. People fear it, but it's seriously a liberating way to work out.
Favorite place to swim in Austin: Barton Springs. I love jumping in natural spring water because there's something purifying and refreshing about it.
What she's wearing:
Floral Couture BY CAROL JILLIAN
Drop Diamond Flutter Bikini Top ($46)
Ocean Side Pant ($40)
Workout of choice: Pure Barre (Westlake) all the way! It's only thing I've found that can get you cut, toned and defined so quickly. A couple times a week and you have a dancers body! Plus, it's great for flexibility and strength.
Favorite water activity: Wakeboarding
