FF Over 40 was incredibly honored to have been interviewed by Lifestyle Magazine.
Here are some excerpts from the article.
Both of you are fitness models and competitors. Is it easier to relate to each other when having similar interests?
Definitely. Our lives are highly detailed and meticulous. We are on very similar schedules especially regarding eating and training. Obviously we work together and pretty much do everything together. Both coming from previous relationships where we just did not have much in common…we thoroughly enjoy the ability to be with a mate who shares so much in relationship to the other. We know right away what the other might be feeling. Typically when one of us might be having an off day…the stronger one knows exactly what to do to help the other get back on track. We are one of the most synergistically aligned couples I have ever been exposed to. We both feel extremely grateful.
As parents to your children and having multiple careers, how do you make time to juggle everything and also workout? Where does your motivation come from to stay consistent with your fitness and careers and strive to assist others with theirs?
It is honestly just something we’re genetically hardwired with. We schedule everything. Motivation and drive is definitely innate. To have a sense of purpose while continually bettering ourselves, and the lives of the people we influence. It is not easy. You have to make time. Neither of us sleeps more than 6 hours a night very often. We both live our lives with a rule of paying it forward. We both try and live in a state of acceptance and gratitude as much as possible. Accepting others for who and what they are and being genuinely grateful for every waking moment we spend on this earth able to walk-talk, eat and breathe. We are on this earth for a short period, we want each day to be filled with experiences we can grow and improve from. Contrast is a part of our life, due to wearing many hats. We look at the contrast as a learning experience and realize it is part of the process. Our kids are a true joy for us. These young men and women are light in our days and we are so grateful we get the opportunity to have each and everyone of them in our lives. – See more at: http://nmlifestylemag.com/2014/01/interview-fabulously-fit-40-couple-jay-campbell-monica-diaz/#sthash.fjXSDq5R.dpuf
