FitLabPGH is a podcast about movement and movement opportunities in the Pittsburgh, PA area.  Once a week we also highlight a FitLabPGH mover…someone who understands that movement is a lifestyle…not just an activity.  The questions are lightly edited to allow for easy readability.  Click FitLabPGH Features for more info if you want to be featured/know someone who should be featured.

This Week: Emily Bischof

Are you a Pittsburgh native? If not, what brought you to the Pittsburgh area? If so, why are you still here? I grew up in Johnstown, which is about 2 hours east of here. I came to Pittsburgh to go to the University of Pittsburgh and stayed here because my husband got a job here.

What are your three favorite movement activities in the Pittsburgh area? I love going to our public parks. I enjoy hiking, paddle boarding, and yoga (of course!)

Describe the best vacation you’ve ever taken? Where did you go? What movement activities did you include? I’m a Disney fanatic, so I love going to Disney World. We are always on the go there so I definitely get my steps in while on vacation. I’m not a sit down and hang out kind of person, especially when it comes to vacation.

What is your favorite pre- or post-workout snack? I don’t usually have a specific pre-workout snack. I have a lot of issues with my stomach, so eating before I exercise just never works out for me. My post- workout snack is nuts.

What is your favorite thing to eat in Pittsburgh? Note: it does not need to be healthy. Pierogies!!!!

Do you have a movement activity on your “bucket list”? If not, what’s a movement activity/event you’re looking forward to in the next year? I would like to try boxing or even something with MMA.

What do you think is the biggest obstacle to getting people to move more? I think it’s diet. When I’m not eating right and feeling sluggish, I don’t want to do anything.

What do you feel is the most adventurous movement activity you’ve ever done? My first ever time in a kayak I went through rapids. It was terrifying but also exhilarating.

What is your favorite recovery or self-care practice? I love to stretch after a workout

What is your favorite spot in Pittsburgh? (Bonus points if it is a “hidden gem”) I love the river walk along the Allegheny

Are you a Pittsburgh native? If not, what brought you to the Pittsburgh area? If so, why are you still here? Born and raised!!! Pittsburgh and I have a love/hate relationship lol

What are your three favorite movement activities in the Pittsburgh area? Cycling, Versaclimbing, and Yoga

Describe the best vacation you’ve ever taken? Where did you go? What movement activities did you include? The best vacay I probably took was a few years ago to Cali! I was out there for my cousin’s wedding at the time and I remember my cousins took my sisters and I down to Malibu beach to walk along the beach & admire some of the caves from afar! At that time I was in the prime of my fitness journey so sadly I didn’t really schedule time for the gym like I should have, but walking around Universal Studios could count right?

What is your favorite pre- or post-workout snack? Favorite post snack: Goat cheese & Blueberries (Please try asap!)

What is your favorite thing to eat in Pittsburgh? Note: it does not need to be healthy. Coop De Ville chicken sandwich & anything from Cinderlands! I have LOTS of favorite restaurants!

Do you have a movement activity on your “bucket list”? If not, what’s a movement activity/event you’re looking forward to in the next year? I actually do! My goal for this summer (hopefully) is to get outside more to visit North Park and go out on hikes with my boyfriend/friends!

What do you think is the biggest obstacle to getting people to move more? People have a big problem with Self motivation! I could go on for DAYS about this topic lol

What do you feel is the most adventurous movement activity you’ve ever done? The most adventurous movement activity that I’ve ever done was become a cycle instructor! Never in a million years did I think I would ever be an instructor, but here we are! Also I’ll be becoming a nurse next year too so I’ll count that as a HUGE adventurous movement for myself!

What is your favorite recovery or self-care practice? I’ve become slightly obsessed with infrared sauna sessions! Also will be trying out a Cryotherapy at Restore and plan to do a float session at Victory Float lounge!

What is your favorite spot in Pittsburgh? (Bonus points if it is a “hidden gem”) I have a few places, but first place that comes to mind is the Color Park in south side!
