Lisa and Tony ZappaAnd just like that, we are in Phase 2! It’s crazy to think that we were just getting ourselves prepared to kick off the Challenge, and now we are so far in. It’s been such a fun, crazy, challenging ride. One of the biggest hurdles for us has been the alarm clock! As we’ve mentioned before, we are both early risers, so we can get our workouts in first thing, but we’ve no doubt had our days when we just want to stay in bed, especially with the change of seasons.On days when Tony has to fly back to work from the States, he has to leave our house by 3 to 3:30 a.m., so that means 1:30 a.m. wake-up calls for both of us. This is…

It’s prep time, everyone! We have less than a week before Hannah Eden and Paulo Barreto kick off America’s Fittest Couple Challenge 3, and we’re counting down the days. Who else is super excited?To say we are preparing may be a bit of an understatement. LOL. Anyone who knows us knows that we are HUGE planners, especially when it comes to preparing for something we plan to give 100 percent of our effort. We’re lucky enough to already have the concept of meal prepping instilled in us with the help of Alexa Uherek, Hannah and Paulo’s nutritionist. And we have, of course, been in the gym for quite some time now, so making that adjustment shouldn’t be TOO hard for us. Thanks for watching!Visit WebsiteHowever, to be completely honest, to…

Overcome Challenges as a Couple Through Fitness

America's Fittest Couple Challenge 3
There is nothing I can appreciate more than the fact that my husband is as passionate about fitness as I am. However, it didn’t start out that way. Hannah Eden and Paulo Barreto transformed together through fitness.When Paulo and I met, he was into body building, and I was into...absolutely nothing that required physical exercise. A few years of working in the service industry - in bars and restaurants - left me extremely underweight living an unhealthy lifestyle. Luckily, I stumbled across CrossFit thanks to a friend who invited me to try it out one day. I got into fitness at a time in my life when I was looking to fill a hole.Thanks for watching!Visit WebsiteI quickly became addicted to CrossFit and began to transform my mind and body. At the same…
