My life revolves around music and sports. Literally. When I am not training competitively for Team USA in the Pentathlon and Triathlon, I am instructing music and running my Guitar Cities music schools in Chicago, San Francisco, New York, and London.

Below is the list of the #AmataStepChallenge Grand Prize Winners! The winners went above and beyond to create a path for a healthy habit. The 12 week total of 840,000 steps would have been the recommended 10,000 steps daily. However, our winners exceeded the recommended daily steps. They took this challenge into their own hands by putting their health first. Congrats to all the winners, and everyone who took on the challenge, because that 12 weeks of walking won us all better health!
