She's Young, Fit and Loves Pushups -- An Interview with Juliana Llop

1. Tell us something about yourself 

My name's Juliana Llop. I'm 17 years old and live in the small town of Frederick, Maryland. Currently in my senior year of high school I'm aspiring to go to college to major in pharmaceutical engineering. I am a fanatic about self improvement. My daily goal is to work on my mind, body and spirit, and although it's challenging, it's very fulfilling.

2. Single or taken? :) 

I'm in a relationship, my boyfriend and I have been together for about a year now.

3. For how long you’ve been working out and what progress have you made?
I've been working out for around two years and do not necessarily measure my results on a scale. However I have gained a lot more muscle, definition, and knowledge of health throughout those years. I've never felt as good as I do today!

4. Which is your favorite exercise?

My favorite exercise has to be pushups. With the variety of ways you can do pushups (military, one armed, wide armed, etc.), they target a ton of different muscles.

5. And your favorite meal?

My favorite meal would probably be scallops seared in olive oil and kale salad (one bunch of kale, a lemon, 2 avocados, and a little olive oil all mashed together). Healthy and delicious!

6. Which is your actual goal?

My goal is to be better than I was the day before, and so far that's worked pretty well for me.

7. Do guys usually hit on you at the gym?

I actually usually work out at home, so I don't have that issue. When I do go to the gym i'm with my boyfriend so there's not a chance.

8. How can people get in touch with you?
Readers can follow my fitness account on Twitter and message me with questions.

9. And finally say a few words to the readers of!
