Other Workout I go to the gym at least 4 days a week and do a lot of biking, core work, and weight lifting. I skate outside as often as I can (weather permitting!). I also enjoy skating around my house! There is a long, enclosed patio out back that I love to practice jumps and spins on. I play baseball during the summer which helps to keep me moving outside of practice and the gym. I also do a lot of stretching in my down time; it's both relaxing and does wonders for my flexibility!
Diet Not really...I eat pretty much anything (within reason, that is), but I always make sure to watch for serving sizes. I am a sucker for salty snacks, but I try to keep those cravings under wraps (I NEVER keep chips in the house).

Practice time per week Between playing for the Punishers and Coaching the Hooligans, between 8 and 11 hours depending on time of the season.
Other Workout I do a lot of aggressive rollerskating in skateparks, trail skating, yoga, and some weight training. I'm always changing up my routine! I love home workouts like T-25 and Booty Quake's Roller Derby Athletics videos.
Diet I've been a vegetarian for 10 years. I focus on eating clean whole foods as much as possible and I'm a huge fan of nutrition packed smoothies. But, everyone who knows me knows I have a huge love for pizza!
