5 minutes with Vie Activist Susan Robinson

  • Why is Vie Active one of your top choices for active wear?I choose to wear Vie Active because not only is it functional, but it is also stylish.  I can wear it for my workout and then head straight to lunch or run errands without feeling like I'm still in 'gym clothes'.
  • What are the benefits of wearing this range when training? The material is comfortable next to skin, moves with me, absorbs sweat and does not smell.
  • How does this enhance your workout? and post workout? During my workout, I appreciate the way merino wool absorbs sweat and odor.  I know I won't smell and leave a pool of sweat wherever I go.  Post workout, merino wool dries quickly so in the time I leave the gym to get to my next scheduled event, I look presentable am comfortable (no post-workout chill from sweaty clothing) and I don't smell of sweat.
  • How does wearing the range make you feel? Awesome!  It's cute and I get compliments every time I wear Vie Active pieces.
  • What are your favourite pieces from the range? I love the Libby Hoody to wear to & from the gym, running around town.  The Katrina tank is great option for outdoor workouts when it's a bit cooler and the Lisa Superlight Racerback is perfect for my gym workouts.
  • Sunrise or Sunset workout? Which do you prefer? Typically morning, although late afternoon/early evening mtb rides are fun in the summer!
  • Typical workout? Consists of cardio & strength.  It can be a circuit workout in the gym, bike ride or nordic ski with intervals, backcountry skiing
  • Typical breakfast? Granola w/ greek yogurt, berries & banana
  • What’s your ultimate healthy meal?  Lots of leafy greens joined by some form of protein
  • What are your makeup must-haves? Tinted moisturizer, mascara, lip gloss
  • What’s always in your gymbag? Gym shoes, socks, tank, shorts or capri tights, hair-tie, ipod, antiperspirant, body lotion, tinted moisturizer
  • Best active holiday you’ve ever taken: Road biking trip on Corsica.  Amazing riding, scenery, food and beach time!
  • What totally relaxes you?  Walking my adorable dog
  • What’s your biggest vice? Chocolate!
  • What was the last thing you recommended to a friend? One of my girlfriends was a bit of a fashion “don’t”, so I went into her closet & pulled together an outfit suggestion for her, which she wore & was complimented on.
  • What’s always in your fridge? Fruits and vegetables
  • Your style icon? So many....Sarah Jessica Parker as Carrie in “Sex and the City”.
  • Your "healthy living" hero? Anyone who exhibits strength, resolve and willingness to push themselves outside of their comfort zone.  My “hero” is the everyday person who is trying to be the best they can be.
  • The wardrobe item you can’t live without? Skinny jeans!
  • The book on your bedside table right now  “Perfect Daughters” by Robert Ackerman.  I re-read it when I need a mental tune-up......you caught me!
  • Three things on your bucket list: Live on a tropical beach for at least 6 months to work on surfing & yoga practice.  Live in Italy or France for 6 months to ski and bike. (Both road & mountain) Go to culinary school.
  • Your latest obsession Yoga & circuit training
  • Number one reason for living an active life Health and sanity
  • Message you’d send to the world I feel like everything I have to say is cliche: Live the life you love, be the best you can be, treat others as you would like to be treated, don’t confuse effort with success, live laugh love......but these are some things that have resonated with me and they are easy mantras to follow when I can’t think clearly.  Some of my biggest ‘ah-ha!’ moments have come from unexpected experiences and people.  Don’t be afraid to try something new, listen to others, accept help and laugh at yourself
