According to the Washington Post (Friends Provide Glimpse Into U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sotomayor’s ‘Very Full Life’, by Keith B. Richburg, Robin Shulman and Nancy Trejos):
Sotomayor has lately tried to exercise several times a week at the courthouse gym and has hired a personal trainer at the nearby Equinox gym. She has also become an avid bicyclist, sometimes going up the West Side of Manhattan and cycling back down the East.
So glad to see Justice Sotomayor setting a healthy example for modern day women. Work and exercise go hand-in-hand. Exercise reduces stress and increases productivity. Biking outdoors is great for working the lower body, clearing the mind and in Sotomayor’s case, getting out of the couthouse for some fresh air.
