Laird Hamilton’s breadth of experience in the world of health, fitness, and extreme training is undeniable. He’s been exposed to the best in the business with access to today’s best trainers, athletes, nutritionists and extreme adventurists. Ever wonder how Laird has pared down all the information he’s had access to? Rather: what health philosophies has Laird adopted for his everyday life?
Summertime means longer days, warmer nights, barbeque and treasured time with family and friends. It can also mean waving “buh-bye” to your time-tested fall routine. Kids are home. Vacations ensue. So how does one master maintaining a healthy summer home amidst all the changes? I caught up with Gabby to get her thoughts: Work With Other Women or Families
