Interview with News Anchor Erika Gonzalez from KEYE TV’s We Are Austin Mornings

Erika Gonzalez is the anchor of KEYE TV’s, We Are Austin mornings, which airs Monday thru Friday from 5a.m. to 7a.m. I met her at church about a year ago, and ever since then she has become a family friend. She has always been active and has even invited my siblings and I to work out with her. Since she has always liked working out, I decided to interview her about activities and exercises she is involved with and how she became involved with these different activities and exercises.

 

So tell me about yourself.

Meditate on this…

Take a seat. Close your eyes. Relax. Breathe in and out. Let the sunlight wash over your face. Stretch your body out and get ready to read about, yep you guessed it, meditation! I went to my first class at Guari Movement Studio and was pleasantly surprised with the experience.

Vibram FiveFinger Shoes Review

 

Around a month ago I was kindly given a pair of Vibram FiveFingers by Whole Earth Provisions Co. Also around that time, I began running barefoot for the first time. (You can check out my running barefoot blog here). The timing of both seemed to work out perfectly since running in Vibrams is very similar to running barefoot, but with added protection.

The Perfect Painless Recovery

Once I heard about CryoStudio, I immediately wanted to try the cryotherapy a few days after a tough work out, so that I could truly see if the cryotherapy worked. So, two days before my appointment I scheduled a work out at Westlake Crossfit and focused on my legs.
