LoveSurf Athlete Izzy Poulin
Q & A:
Q: What is it about you that makes you a Lovesurf Girl?
A: I am a Lovesurf Girl because I am fun, happy, creative, and love fashion! I always have a great attitude and a positive outlook on life. I love making the most out of everyday and feel being unique from everyone is the best way to live. I also enjoy making others happy with my personality. I live a very athletic and healthy lifestyle through the many sports that I do.
I am very passionate about these sports and always will be. I recently got into yoga and will always love trying new things. I strive to succeed in whatever it is I'm doing, especially in school. I have volunteered at many places including the St. Vincent de Paul Homeless Shelter and at Meals-On-Wheels and feel it has impacted my life very much on showing me how fortunate I am.
Q: What is a typical week for you? Do you follow a strict training routine?
A: On a typical week I would say surfing is what I do most. I either go with my dad or with friends and stay out for a few hours. The feeling of catching a wave is definitely one of the best and is one of the reasons why I am so addicted to surfing. I also feel I have a great attachment to the beach, as I have grown up next to it all my life and it is so mysterious and beautiful.
I do not follow a strict training routine accept when working out on my own time. I make sure to do certain things (planks, lunges, crunches, etc.) to keep myself strong and fit. I try and go to yoga as much as possible depending on what is going on during that week.
I practice tennis with my dad often and compete in tournaments every once and a while. In high school I was on the varsity tennis team all four years as well as the surf and swim team my junior year.
I really enjoy living a healthy and active lifestyle through what I eat and what I do because it makes me feel good and makes me happy.
