So, I like to eat. Like, a lot. Ok, actually, I'm not going to beat around the bush: I'M LITERALLY OBSESSED WITH FOOD...which means that I have to work out. (I swear this relates to theater, don't give up on me right away.) For years, I despised exercise, and I was absolutely horrible at it (not that I'm so great now, but I'm a lot better). After years of feeling a shiver down my spine at the thought of working out, I've finally started to enjoy it thanks to Flywheel Sports, an amazing chain of indoor cycling studios.
