Miller Moss

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!

Melody Afkami

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.

Hannah Walker

Occupation: Model

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
