Hear it from the U.S. Olympic short track skater Katherine Reutter-Adamek herself, about her preparation for the Winter Olympics 2018, in an exclusive interview with Namita Nayyar, President Women Fitness.

Ms. Namita Nayyar:

You first started speed skating professionally in 2005 at the age of 17 and reached the pinnacle of success by becoming the First American woman to win both an individual (1500m and 1000m) and overall World Cup title. Walk us through this spectacular journey and tell us how it all began?

Ms. Katherine Reutter-Adamek:

I learned how to skate with my Mom and the University of IL ice rink. After some time as a figure skater my family and I realized that I loved going fast and speedskating was a better fit. My Dad was my coach for the majority of my adolescence. When I was 17 I qualified to skate for the Olympic Education Center in Marquette, MI. After 2 years I qualified to train with the National Team in Salt Lake City, UT. Learning from my coaches and teammates pushed me to work harder than I thought was possible. I stayed positive and refused to give up no matter how hard the training was. Eventually that hard work paid off in a World Cup Title.

Ms. Namita Nayyar:

Introduce us to a day in your life, preparing for the Olympics.

Ms. Katherine Reutter-Adamek:

Up at 6:30, at the rink by 7:10, on ice from 8-10, cool down until 10:30, back at the rink at 2:30, lift, bike, run or dryland training until 5. In between my sessions I usually see my physical therapist, chiropractor, psychologist, massage therapist, or Pilates instructor.
