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!

Thanksgiving has come and gone, and unfortunately for many of us, the spirit of thanks went along with it. Of course it comes and goes again throughout the year, but with the end of the year right around the corner, our minds tend to shift towards planning (and anxiety) rather than giving or being thankful. The office turns into a hotbox as the end of the year race hits.
