What's one tip you'd give to moms struggling to make time for physical activity?

Schedule your workouts like appointments. Make a deal with yourself to do the workout for at least 5 minutes and then you can stop if you don't feel like finishing the workout. I guarantee once you change and start your workout you will finish it. Remember it takes 21 days to form a habit!! You will feel so great after those 21 days you will wonder why you hadn't been working out all along.

What's your best advice for moms trying to get healthy?

Fit in exercise whenever you can, even if it for only 10 minute spurts while your kids nap or are occupied. Bursts of exercise are better than no exercise.

What motivates you to stay active while raising a family?

My family motivates me. I want to be around a long time so I can see my children grow up and have their own children. They are my motivation to stay active!!!!

What's your New Year's Resolution?

Toni Church

I think we should all resolve to change our lives today and not with every year until New Year's to make these changes. What I have done this year is create goals for myself rather than resolutions. My goals this year are: Run 1/2 marathon in 1:45 Run the NYC marathon between 4:00 and 4:30 Finally get my "six pack" abs Make this my best year yet!!!

What's the best age for starting a family?

Toni Church

I have personally have had 2 children one at 19 and one at 30. Having to children a decade apart has left with me with 2 completely different experiences. I love both my children greatly but I feel I was still finding myself in my twenties and appreciated being a mom so much more in my thirties. If I had to say the best age I would say 30.
