Marielle C profile pictureWhat has been your favourite Tribesports Challenge to date and which has been the toughest?

My favorite Challenge would probably be something like Run for 45 min without stopping, they all are kinda a favorite though because they all get me in better shape and that's why another favorite Challenge was Get your body fat percentage down 5%. I absolutely hate burpees, it's a great exercise but I hate it. 

Your list of resolutions for 2013 is pretty impressive - which event are you most looking forward to?

I am looking forward to all of them, to me they are all big accomplishments and progress, and that is what I strive for. I do think that the losing 10 cm around my tummy and Getting body fat percentage to under 30-25% are the ones that I'm looking forward to the most though.

How do you get so many Challenges completed? Do you scatter them throughout the day or dedicate specific time to workout?

I usually create my workouts around my Challenges, it's a good way to get stuff done and to try things I wouldn't usually do in a workout.

As you aspire to be a Personal Trainer, what would you say is the best exercise to get a good full body workout?

There is a lot of exercises that help for a full body workout, I like burpees (no I don't!) and bicycle crunches, squats, pushups, sit-ups and some tricep dips.

Yoga class in Norway collegeWhich yoga posture is your favourite? Have you tried many forms of yoga practice?

I am very new to yoga, but I have tried a little sun salutations before. I think my favorite pose would be either Warrior or Downward Facing Dog.

What sporting achievement are you most proud of?

I am proud of all my achievements, they all help me in one way or another, whether it's mental or physical.

Which Tribesports user makes your day?

All the users make my day, every comment and everyone taking all my Challenges and all the encouragement. I think that if I have to pick someone it would probably be Tycho and Rick P;they're nice, they help me out and actually talk to me.
