Oc­cu­pa­tion: Owner, Azana Sa­lon and Spa, Brook­field Age: 41

Tami Gem­mell has gone from gain­ing the “fresh­man 15” pounds her first year of col­lege to los­ing that weight, then go­ing on to place 13th out of 121 women in a na­tional-level physique com­pe­ti­tion in New York City in 2001. To­day, she says, “I stay fit so I can en­joy happy and healthy friend­ships.” The Muskego res­i­dent’s rou­tine in­cludes weight train­ing and us­ing the new Pelo­ton bike for 45-minute car­dio ses­sions, both four to five times a week. In be­tween su­per sets of weight train­ing – in which she pairs a ma­jor mus­cle group with a smaller mus­cle group – she does abs. Gem­mell also uses the Wakesurf Edge Bal­ance Board to pre­pare for wake surf­ing at the lake she and her hus­band live on. “Ex­er­cise is and has al­ways been my ‘drug,’” she says. “It helps to clear my mind, el­e­vate my mood and bat­tle the ef­fects of stress. And it helps me sleep.”
