Q.You’re only 19 years old and you’re an ASP Women’s World Champ. How does that feel?
I have to pinch myself all the time. I am so lucky to be where I am at in life right now. It has been a dream of mine since I was little to be a world champ so to have that goal checked off already is unbelievable.
Q.You're constantly in the water. Which surfing event do you look forward to most?
I love the Roxy Pro on the Gold Coast of Australia. It is the first event of our year and the wave is just so much fun! The vibe, people and culture is amazing and there is always so much going on surrounding the event. Never a dull moment.
Q.It's no secret that you win a lot. How do you reward yourself?
To celebrate I usually do something simple like a nice dinner with family and friends. But, I must admit I have done quite a bit of shopping since the season ended though, oops!
Q.You rock a bikini like a true surfer chick. Do you EVER feel insecure in swimwear or is it smooth sailing...
Q.Millions of people watch you on NBC’s Today Show. What’s the most exciting part of being on the show?
By far, the most exciting and rewarding aspect for me is the opportunity to reach millions of people with practical and manageable health messages…in a matter of minutes. And having coffee in the greenroom with George Clooney and Lady Gaga is pretty darn cool, too!
Q.You have a fitness dvd too! What kind of woman did you design Joy Bauer's Slimdown Workout for?
Slimdown is designed for beginner and intermediate exercisers. Best of all, it’s easy to catch on and jump right in, so you don’t have to feel overwhelmed about starting a new fitness routine.
Q.Before you became a nutritionist, you were a trainer. How did you make this transition?
While I was studying kinesiology during my undergrad years at University of Maryland, I taught aerobics and other exercise classes all over town. I then went to graduate school at NYU for nutrition, and...

You better get going before the Fitness Fashion Police strikes!
*MizzFIT Tells US WEEKLY What Celebs Are Wearing 2 Work Out*
Marisa Tomei is one of my favorite actresses of all time. I've loved her since Untamed Heart (yes, bad storyline but she didn't judge Christian Slater for having a baboon heart and that makes her a quality person). Acting aside, Marisa's body is off the charts and now we know how she maintains it -- with hoopBody! Check her out on Ellen.
hoopBody is a fun, low impact home-fitness workout that you can do in your living room or backyard. It's great for your core, especially the abs and waist-line. I can't think of anyone else I'd rather work out to on DVD than Marisa. It's like you want to be her best friend...but then maybe not...I'd be green with envy if I had to hang out with her all the time and watch her steal my boyfriends. Working out with her on DVD suits me just fine (sorry Marisa, you're just too hot). The hoopBODY kit is on backorder until August, but you can reserve yours now at Gaiam.com.
