Amanda was a competitive gymnast from age 5 to 22, then fell in love with running in her early 20s, tackling a few marathons as well as 10-mile races. A few years ago, she joined a CrossFit gym, took a shine to group training, and went on to participate in several CrossFit competitions. Amanda especially likes exercising outside. “I wish I could spend all my time outdoors—hiking, camping, or downhill skiing,” she says. “I’m obsessed with travel. I try to travel outside the United States at least once per year.” When she’s closer to home, Amanda likes spending time at the lakes, playing golf with friends, and scouring the Twin Cities to find the best ice cream.
