Motivated by her father’s health complications to get into fitness, Alicia Schoroth now counts on her healthy lifestyle as a source of happiness and energy.
With 20 years of fitness being an essential part of her life—she was initially motivated to get healthy after her father passed away from diabetes—Alicia Schroth, 46, says it’s the continued positive effect it’s had on her body that brings her happiness. “I don’t look or feel my age. I am ready to tackle any challenge and activity with my family, and that brings me true joy.”
One of the biggest highlights for her? “The day I won my first competition. My family was in attendance and it was truly a proud moment,” she says, adding, however, that she doesn’t placement in a competition define her. Also, as important as her training is to her, it’s not something she lets interfere with time with her son; he comes first. However, Alicia does believe her process has taught him a valuable lesson: You have to earn it. You have to put in the work.
As for what’s on deck now?
“SUMMERTIME IS DEFINITELY THE FAVOURITE SEASON FOR OUR FAMILY, AND WE LOVE OUR TIME ATHOME.”
Summertime is definitely the favorite season for our family, and we love our time at home,” says Alicia. Originally from the Niagara region (with her husband hailing from Alberta), they each have fond memories of being outside and active all summer. So you’ll find them taking advantage of the trails and parks where they live, paddle boarding in the Credit River, eating every meal outside on the deck, and, of course, in their pool every morning and every night. “We try to spend as much quality family time together as we can, whether we’re relaxing or being active. We have put our son on the path of a healthy lifestyle and we’re proud that we are able to fully participate in life with him..
