Typical Workout: I’m training SurfSET instructors now, but I still hike, swim, and surf in the ocean when I get the chance. Best Body Part: My triceps—it’s that pulling motion in a lot of the swimming and climbing I do. Fitness Challenge: Endurance. I’m just not a runner. I like short, fast, high-intensity workouts. Guilty Pleasure: Dark-chocolate-covered pretzels. Must-Have Accessory: I love my Polar heart-rate-monitor watch. Body Beautiful: Cameron Diaz. She’s athletic without being boyish looking.
