Interview with Raw Vegan Personal Trainer, Ramona Cadogan

Ramona Cadogan is a New York-based science teacher, tutor, personal trainer, pilates teacher, hula hooper and a raw vegan chef who enjoys a healthy holistic organic raw vegan lifestyle. She enjoys Olympic lifting, crossfit, and bikini fitness. She has participated in a number of obstacle courses like the Warrior Dash and Spartan Races.

I was lucky enough to catch up with Ramona when she wasn't moving and ask her a few questions about fitness and food. 

How did you end up becoming a personal trainer?
I became a personal trainer to help people get over their challenges with fitness. I provide a fun but challenging routine base on my client's fitness level.

Why did you decide to adopt a raw vegan diet?
I became raw vegan because [I care about] other animals and [because of the] health benefits, even though I did not have health challenges when I was not on a plant based diet.

Did you see that commercial about how chocolate milk is a recovery meal? Bananas! What's your favorite meal or snack to eat after a work out?
After a workout my favorite food to eat would be sprouted quinoa and lentils as well as a large salad with all greens, red and yellow peppers, tomatoes, and lemons as a dressing.

Do you have any tips for people who want to incorporate more physical activity into their life?
In order to incorporate more activity I would suggest splitting up the workout. 10 to 20 minutes in morning, 20 minutes during lunch, and 20 minutes in the evening.

I think it's awesome that you teach people to hula hoop! I love hooping; it's so fun it barely feels like exercise! What are the benefits?
Hula hooping is another form of fitness I teach to connect the mind, body, and soul. When the hoop is going around your body I ask people to meditate and connect to their inner child. Also while you are hooping I encourage people to let their mind rest and and let the hoop flow with your body and connect with your spirit.
