We recently sat down and asked Robbie a few questions.

What time of day do you like to exercise?
Always in the morning, starting the day with a workout fires up the metabolism and creates higher levels of energy and endorphins to power through the day.    
Besides “cycling,” how else do you like to work up a sweat?
I love to cross country ski.  Being from Chicago, we have plenty of cold and snow and have to learn to embrace the elements. It is important to keep your motivation up.   
If you need some energy, what do you do for it?
I like to get outside and walk. Something about being in fresh air immediately increases my energy and brightens my mood.
What would be your ultimate adventure?
To take my family in an RV for two months and see the beautiful west cost.
Most challenging experience?
Raising kids and keeping up with their schedules is a challenge.  With tough challenges comes great rewards and my four kids provide that for me.
