Instructor Name: Selina Santos

Go-To Refuel Food: Hard Boiled Egg and a Whole Grain English Muffin with just a dab of ghee or avocado or a Banana

“Avocados and bananas are key for me in monitoring my blood pressure. They are high in antioxidants and in potassium, which are essential to maintaining a healthy heart. So when my heart rate rises in class, my heart is nice and strong to power through!”

Instructor Name: Mackenzie Pretty

Go-To Refuel Food: Anything Spiralized!

"I really believe that I am only as strong as what I refuel my body with, so lean protein and an insane amount of veggies really helps keep me on my game. Raw zucchini is a great source of magnesium and potassium which helps muscle contraction and strengthen bones."
