Fera: What keeps you busy?
EDL: When I’m not training and teaching, I’m in my year-round backyard vegetable garden. It keeps me busy! I absolutely love getting my hands in the dirt, being outside every day and watching nature work her magic. I never thought I’d have time for gardening, but it’s my daily therapy, and great exercise, too!
Fera: What's your favorite workout?
EDL: Though I positively love a long run, I’ve have to say my all-time favorite workout is surfing. It works everything, and yet is so peaceful and fun. I’m not a great surfer (yet), but I hope to be one day!
Fera: What is the healthiest thing you do?
EDL: I cook. I believe good health is born in the kitchen, so my husband and I cook almost every meal, and only eat out on special occasions. Not only does it save us money, but we rarely ever get sick, even during cold/flu season. We focus on nutrient-rich, fresh ingredients and are always trying new recipes. Neither of us are natural-born chefs, but I like to think we are getting there.
Fera: What is your strangest beauty/health tip?
EDL: I drink a TON of water. It keeps my skin clear, adds shine to my hair, brightens my eyes and gives me energy. Never leave home without it!
Fera: Fave workout song?
EDL: I don’t typically work out to music, but when I do, I love just about anything dance-y. DJs like Diplo and Kid Koala; funk, hip hop, electronic, you name it. Lately female artists like Santigold and Lykke Li have been at the top of my playlist.
Fera: What's your favorite inspirational quote or saying?
EDL: Not sure who said it originally, but it’s so true: “You're only one workout away from a good mood.”
Fera: Tell us about the last time you wore Fera.
EDL: I was teaching two back-to-back outdoor classes in the rain and it was pretty windy and cold out. I had on my Bliss leggings, a light tank and my Soma ½ zip top. I was worried I might not be warm enough, even though we were running around, but I was snug as a bug! And by the time I got in the car, my clothes were almost dry. Doesn’t get better than that. :) [Ed. note: Watch Emily's full review here!]
