Iron Man Triathlons- Emily Williams-Birch
Ironman Triathlons are a series of long-distance races that include a 2.4 mile swim, 112-mile bicycle ride and a 26.2 mile run, all without taking a break. Largely considered to be the hardest single day sporting event in the world. With Emily it’s as much about mind strength as it is about body strength, and the three different sports training plus strength training is great for mixing it up and never getting bored. For people who are just getting started with working out she says, “You have to find something that you can’t wait to do, something that, even when you’re tired, you have the internal motivation to do it. I do triathlon for me. For a healthy body, mind, and for FUN! I have the coolest TRI friends and I experiences I get through training and races make for excellent life stories that help me transform and impact the lives of the students I teach. “
In addition to being an Iron woman Emily is the Director of Education and Music at the Savannah Children’s Choir
Bodybuilding- Tiffany Laumeyer
Tiffany Laumeyer is a bodybuilder who says strength training is an important part of her fitness program, “Many women miss out on the benefits of strength training out of fear of developing bulky muscles. This is a misperception. A regular strength training program helps you reduce overall body fat while improving strength and endurance.” She says when it comes to eating she is equally passionate about nutrition as she is about fitness, “Proper nutrition gives your body the fuel it needs to perform as it highest level. Even if you’re not an athlete, you average day to day life will be much improved.” To those new to strength training she admits starting a fitness journey can be overwhelming but if you take it slow and set small goals it will keep you focused. “If you are not sure of where to start or feel uneasy doing it alone, hire a personal trainer. That’s what I do and I love it!”
