Cardio vs. weights: “I would have to say it’s an even split down the middle,” says Deirdre.
Fave feature: “Abs! When you have them and you’re engaging them every day, it’s surprising how much you use them.”
Good advice: Training for competitions and working out regularly has taught Deirdre how to be positive and stay focused on herself. “Don’t try and compete with others,” she says. “It’s not about lifting the heaviest weight or performing the latest moves or routines; it’s about you, your abilities and your goals.”
What’s your favorite clean food? “Zucchini,” says Deirdre. “I don’t think I will ever get sick of it!”
