This Week: Sandor Koppanyi

Are you a Pittsburgh native? If not, what brought you to the Pittsburgh area? Kind of. My mom is born and raised in Sewickley and I personally moved 7x before the end of high school but I always came back to Pittsburgh every summer. After college, I knew that I wanted to move away from Kentucky and made my final decision to live in Pittsburgh since I knew I would have support from family nearby and there is a growing fitness scene!

What are your three favorite movement activities in the Pittsburgh area? Training in Olympic weightlifting at Pittsburgh Fitness Project. Taking my kettlebell or steel mace to a park and doing a random workout for an hour. Working on my “pretty boy,” muscles at my apartment with kettlebells, bands, and perfect pushups.

Describe your fantasy movement-focused vacation…cost is not an object…where do you go and what do you do? This would be later in life when I don’t care as much about brute strength compared to how I feel, but I would spend a summer in India or Thailand and do a yoga excursion. Not necessarily a teacher certification, but just escape reality for a while and enjoy nature as well as be in tune with my mind and body for an extended period of time.

What is your go-to weekday breakfast? Your weekend breakfast? 1 cup rolled oats with a handful of chopped almonds, cinnamon and a banana. Then I soak the oatmeal with a protein shake instead of water. On the weekends I love having a breakfast sandwich with scrambled eggs, guacamole on the bread, then some bacon on the side.

What is your favorite thing to eat in Pittsburgh? Note: it does not need to be healthy. I love a lot of restaurants in Pittsburgh, and with my Hungarian heritage I would recommend Huszar 10/10. You probably wouldn’t get better Hungarian food in America unless someone’s grandma makes it, they are really friendly and they even have some Hungarian alcohol on hand if you’re feeling adventurous.

What is the most unusual and/or challenging movement activity you’ve done? Would you do it again? I’ve done quite a variety and when it comes to unusual, I’d say it would be a Pure Barre class. Unless you were a former dancer there’s basically no way to prepare your body for what’s to come and it can be brutal. But my most challenging workout involved using my street back home that was .2 miles long on Thanksgiving 2 years ago. I did frog jump squats down one end, walked back, then walking lunges down one end, walked back and then monster walks with a slingshot down to one end. It was over a half mile of exercises and my legs were sore for almost a full week!

What movement activity/event are you looking forward to in the next year? I’m competing in the Arnold Classic for weightlifting in the 73kg class. It’s my first American Open meet!

Would you rather go scuba diving or skydiving? Sky diving

What is your favorite recovery or self-care practice? Getting a light pump throughout the body, a long walk listening to a podcast on a beautiful day, work on Pilates or do a random free yoga class.

What is the one place visitors to Pittsburgh “must” see? My 3rd cousins from Hungary visited at the end of this summer but were only in town for a short time and I took them to Mt. Washington overlook. It’s a great view of the city but if you have time I think seeing the strip district is great too.

This Week: Maggie & Puddin – 20K Challenge

We’ve heard you’re participating in the 20K Virtual Challenge from Northeast K9 Conditioning. What motivated you to join the challenge? We believe that movement is a lifestyle, not just an activity.  We want to encourage other dogs, and their humans, to get outside and move more!

Where will you be completing the challenge? We happily walk / jog / hike wherever Ben takes us…now that the weather is FINALLY getting cooler, we’re hoping to complete most of the challenge on the trails of Mingo Creek Park…we especially enjoy hills and single-track trails.

Have you encountered any difficulties since beginning the challenge? Maggie: I haven’t, but Puddin the Puppy sprained her left front paw a few days into the challenge.  The humans are making her rest until it heals. She’s already feeling better, so I don’t think we’ll have a problem completing the challenge!

Do you have any tips for less active dogs who are thinking about joining the challenge? Start slowly! You have until the end of December to complete the 20K (that’s 12.4 miles), so you can start with really short walks and gradually build up to longer walks.  Also, be sure to ask your human for a treat after you finish a walk.

What are you going to do with the medal when you complete the challenge? Post it on social media, of course…forget about “Medal Monday”…we’re going for “Medal Month”!!!

This Week: Megan Clouner

Are you a Pittsburgh native? If not, what brought you to the Pittsburgh area? I was born in Denver, Colorado but was raised in Pittsburgh.

What are your three favorite movement activities in the Pittsburgh area? The Montour Trail is a go to for our family. We love to run and bike the trails. The old railroad tunnels are always cool to see and run through. Mingo Creek Park – trails paved/off road in the woods, covered bridges, playgrounds, streams for playing/crayfish catching!….we love the options Mingo gives us! It’s a favorite of ours for training or just family fun! Transcend Bodyworks – I go to Bethany in Bridgeville for Hotworx workouts and massages. Hotworx is a program that uses heat and infrared technology while you workout (isometric and HIIT). It’s an extremely effective and efficient workout.

Describe your fantasy movement-focused vacation…cost is not an object…where do you go and what do you do? Patagonia would be an incredible trip. The scenery is unmatched and the area offers hiking, climbing, fishing, and so much more. Sweden/Norway – My family originates from this area. I’d love to just go and explore everything these countries have to offer.

What is your go-to weekday breakfast? Your weekend breakfast? During the week my go to is a protein shake. I need a quick breakfast without sacrificing health. I use Arbonne protein, which is a plant-based source. During the weekend, I typically stick with my shake, but we love making pancakes as a family. I do love avocado toast though too!

What is your favorite thing to eat in Pittsburgh? Note: it does not need to be healthy. I truly can’t think of one specific place! Eating your way through the Strip District is always good! Eating breakfast at Pamela’s, stopping at Roland’s for a bloody Mary, grabbing snacks from all the small vendors on the street! Dinner at any of the restaurants overlooking the city from Mount Washington is never a bad choice! The views are incredible. Sarris in Canonsburg is a must for the old school ice cream parlor.

What is the most unusual and/or challenging movement activity you’ve done? Would you do it again? My family loves Colorado, and with that comes hiking and mountain climbing. We go once a year and always make sure to bag a few 14ers each time. While it’s unusual for most, it is a favorite of ours!

What movement activity/event are you looking forward to in the next year? The Pittsburgh Half Marathon. I ran this race for years, until our first daughter was born race weekend 6 years ago. This year, her birthday is finally not on race weekend! I’m excited and anxious to run this race again! My family has a few ultramarathon trail races in the works too!

Would you rather go scuba diving or skydiving? My husband and I went sky diving and it was an incredible experience. We went to New Orleans when the Steelers played the Saints, Halloween weekend, and decided why not! (Pre marriage and kids lol) Not sure I’d do it again but I think it is something every one should do once! Scuba diving scares me! Maybe snorkeling?!

What is your favorite recovery or self-care practice? I love a good massage post race, or a session in a steam room. Hotworx Yoga is a great way to unwind and stretch.

What is the one place visitors to Pittsburgh “must” see? There is nothing more “Pittsburgh” than the Strip District on a weekend. Mount Washington for the views! The Phipps Conservatory, especially during the holiday season.

This Week: Jackie Baker

Are you a Pittsburgh native? If not, what brought you to the Pittsburgh area? We moved here when I was a baby, my dad worked for PPG. I’ve been here my whole life!

What are your three favorite movement activities in the Pittsburgh area? Yoga and climbing at Ascend is my daily grind; after work I try to get a mountain bike ride or run in on the numerous trail systems within an hour of the city; weekends you can find me climbing, SUPing, hiking or xc-skiing at the many recreation areas we have within a three hour radius.

Describe your fantasy movement-focused vacation…cost is not an object…where do you go and what do you do? I would love to summit more mountains, traverse more long trails, bike across the country, explore more waterways. International travel is high on the list, but so are Alaska, Hawaii, the southwestern desert, the Pacific Northwest…

What is your go-to weekday breakfast? Your weekend breakfast? Banana and yogurt with walnuts and cinnamon, and coffee. Weekends I like to sauté a ton of veggies with my eggs and eat a giant bowl of it with cottage cheese and hot sauce. Also, all the smoothies, every day.

What is your favorite thing to eat in Pittsburgh? Note: it does not need to be healthy. Gooskis Jamaican Jerk wings. Polish Hill represent.

What is the most unusual and/or challenging movement activity you’ve done? Would you do it again? This year I participated in the MS150 Escape to the Lake charity event. We cycled 150 miles on backroads from Moraine state park to Erie over the course of two days. It was awesome! It was the first time I’d ever rode more than 70 miles in a day, and though I’d been training for it for a month, I probably didn’t give myself enough time to train or vary my training terrain enough. It kicked my butt but I’d definitely do it again! Though I’d like to switch up the course next time – I have my sites set on the RAGBRAI in Iowa, or hitting the newly opened Great American Rail Trail.

What movement activity/event are you looking forward to in the next year? A major goal of mine is to be accepted into the Explorers Club of Pittsburgh’s mountaineering school next fall and summit Mount Whitney in the winter of 2021. I plan on working on my technical rope, anchor and rescue skills during the climbing season next year in preparation for this.  I’m also looking to get back into whitewater and feeling a little bit more comfortable paddling after a hiatus this year.  Also, is it ever going to snow again? I’d like to do more cross-country skiing this winter and I only got out a couple times last year!

Would you rather go scuba diving or skydiving? Scuba. I want to look at all the pretty things!

What is your favorite recovery or self-care practice? I love just relaxing with a movie and a jigsaw puzzle and a homecooked meal. Sometimes I just need to recharge my batteries and let my mind wander.

What is the one place visitors to Pittsburgh “must” see? McConnells Mill State Park, or the Laurel Highlands. I really don’t spend that much time in the city

Are you a Pittsburgh native? If not, what brought you to the Pittsburgh area? I’m from Northern PA and Hudson is from Virginia. Our family brought us here to live with them!

Describe your fantasy movement-focused vacation…cost is not an object…where do you go and what do you do? Well one time my mom took me to Michigan and I swam in the lakes. I’d love to do that again but this time bring my brother!

What is your go-to weekday breakfast? Your weekend breakfast? Kibble is our favorite meal because that’s normally all we eat. However, both Hudson’s and my favorite breakfast would have something to do with bacon!

This Week: Bethany Conley

Are you a Pittsburgh native? If not, what brought you to the Pittsburgh area? I was born in Northern Michigan and raised in Wexford, PA. I moved to the City of Pittsburgh for my college studies. The urban environment, arts culture and music scene in Pittsburgh really appealed to me so I stayed. I briefly moved away to another country for a year, which was great, but then I came back to my natural habitat.

What are your three favorite movement activities in the Pittsburgh area? Walking, dancing, and swimming.

Describe your fantasy movement-focused vacation…cost is not an object…where do you go and what do you do? I would love something where I could safely swim from one island to another somewhere. Kind of like in the book/film The Beach, but I’d prefer it with no shark dangers. Also, my friend just showed me her photos from a 4-day camping trek to Machu Picchu and it looked amazing. That’s runner up.

What is your go-to weekday breakfast? Your weekend breakfast? On weekdays: greek yogurt with chia seeds, fruit & nut granola, lemon water, and coffee. On weekends: a poached egg on whole wheat English muffin, with butter and jam, papaya slices on the side, lemon water, and coffee. Sometimes pancakes or biscotti will make a special cameo on the weekend.

What is your favorite thing to eat in Pittsburgh? Note: it does not need to be healthy. Lately it’s been Baby Loves Tacos (in Bloomfield). No matter what kind of taco I get there I am always in tastebud heaven. Also, my husband and I really love Azorean Cafe, Tram’s Vietnamese, People’s Indian and Chicken Latino. You can’t go wrong with any of those places.

What is the most unusual and/or challenging movement activity you’ve done? Would you do it again? I guess jumping rope/running, while singing. This helps me with singing in my band (Balloon Ride Fantasy). It’s hard to sing when your heart rate gets up, so it’s pretty unnatural at first.

What movement activity/event are you looking forward to in the next year? On Saturday, October 26, our band is playing an annual party in Bloomfield called the Evaline Halloween party. This year it is “moon” themed. We go every year, and we have so much fun there, running around the curated rooms and yard, dancing and hanging out. It’s open to the public and everyone in Pittsburgh should check it out at least once.

Would you rather go scuba diving or skydiving? Sky diving. I’ve been wanting to go for a while. I’m looking for someone to give me a figurative push. I will probably need to be a little medicated in order to go through with it, but I do want to check this off my list as a life experience.

What is your favorite recovery or self-care practice? Stretching and massage.

What is the one place visitors to Pittsburgh “must” see? The Panther Hollow trails at Schenley Park are impressive because there’s a lot of beautiful woods and open green space there, in surprising proximity to the city. It’s a lovely escape from the concrete jungle.

What is the one place visitors to Pittsburgh “must” see? West End Overlook. Everyone does the typical Mt Washington view. The West End Overlook I feel is a better view of the city.

This Week: Emma Yourd, Fittsburgh Project

Are you a Pittsburgh native? If not, what brought you to the Pittsburgh area? I’m a Pittsburgh native, born and raised in the South Hills! I spent 10 years away for college and then my job, but moved back in 2018 to start grad school and ultimately a new career here in the city.

What are your three favorite movement activities in the Pittsburgh area? Is it biased to say my own free fitness group?? Fittsburgh Project is definitely one! I love trail running, mostly at South Park. And I’m a fan of vinyasa yoga-still trying to find that perfect studio in the city.

Describe your fantasy movement-focused vacation…cost is not an object…where do you go and what do you do? I haven’t spent that much time out West, so I’d love to go there for a week. Maybe Colorado or California, wake up early and do some morning trail runs. Spend the week hiking the mountains and end everyday with some yin/restorative yoga to stretch and unwind. I love vacations where you can work fitness into your daily activities instead of it being something else I *have* to do.

What is your go-to weekday breakfast? Your weekend breakfast? I’m in grad school right now, so breakfast has to be enough to fuel me but also be fast and convenient. I do a lot of smoothies and overnight oats during the week, something I can make the night before and then grab and go. Weekends can be more relaxed, so I mix it up with eggs – a favorite is cottage cheese topped with a fried egg and Tabasco. I also love a good waffle.

What is your favorite thing to eat in Pittsburgh? Note: it does not need to be healthy. La Gourmandine almond croissants.

What is the most unusual and/or challenging movement activity you’ve done? Would you do it again? Pilates is SO HARD. My mom and I recently went to a few classes at Moxie Pilates and I definitely went in with an ego, thinking “I’m so fit, this will be fine.” It was the most difficult workout I’ve done in years! They force you to work all these smaller muscles that runners don’t normally develop and I was shaking 10 minutes into class. 10/10 would love to make that part of my regular workout routine.

What movement activity/event are you looking forward to in the next year? I spent six months last year sidelined from running with a stress fracture, so I’m looking forward to signing up for a race this fall and just getting back into the competitive aspect of running that I’ve missed so much.

Would you rather go scuba diving or skydiving? Scuba diving! I’ve been snorkeling a few times and would love to get closer to some of the things I’ve seen from the surface. Also, falling out a plane sounds terrifying.

What is your favorite recovery or self-care practice? I LOVE yin yoga for relaxing and really stretching those deep connective tissues. I also try to do weekly Epsom salt baths to help with recovery and muscle inflammation. Journaling has been a huge part of mentally recovering from my injury last year.

What is the one place visitors to Pittsburgh “must” see? I know Mount Washington is a popular place for visitors, but I think that the view from behind the Pirates dugout in PNC Park is the most beautiful view in the city. Also, I always take visitors to the Strip District because I think it gives you such a flavor for Pittsburgh.
