BRAND OF WORK OUT CLOTHES
Danielle & Lindsay: We can' choose just one—all of the lines we carry are phenomenal in performance and style, but we really like: Splits59, lululemon athletica and Karma.
Danielle: Anywhere that my husband and I can be active and near the ocean. Alys Beach has gorgeous architecture and very serene surroundings.
Lindsay: I was born and raised on the water in Bradenton, Florida, so I love to vacation anywhere that I am not landlocked.
WORK OUT BAG
We both like just about any lululemon bag out there. lululemon.com
Danielle: I love the Baby Bites from Pastry Art and a large Evian water. At the moment, Red Velvet is my favorite. pastryartcakes.com
Lindsay: My treat is a large chocolate chip cookie from Zoe's. zoeskitchen.com
ENERGY GIVING SNACK
Danielle: I enjoy dark chocolate goji berries, which you can find at Whole Foods. wholefoodsmarket.com
Lindsay: I snack on a honey crisp apple and almond butter, with sea salt.
LOCAL RESTAURANT (depends on the time of day)
Danielle: If it' a special occasion, I love Highlands
Lindsay: I like Jinsei for their fresh food and drinks. They always set a great tone for a fun night.
SKIN CARE PRODUCT
Danielle: I use any of the BioCé© Products from Trump Network. They contain nothing artificial and there are no harsh chemicals, love it! bioceyourlife.com
Lindsay: My favorites are both Rodan & Fields and Obagi products. rodanandfields.com, obagi.com
RELAXING PLACE IN THE HOME
Danielle: Definitely my bath tub! I'm a bath person—it's an everyday ritual.
Lindsay: My screened-in back porch is where I relax, especially in the fall and spring.

GREAT PLACE TO RUN IN BIRMINGHAM: JEMISON TRAIL
Lindsay: I don't love to run, but when Danielle pulls me to do it with her, I definitely choose Jemison Trail.
Jemison Trail is around 2 to 3 miles (depending on the route you choose to take) of paved and unpaved trails. With botanical signs along the way, plenty of shade, and a view of Shades Creek, this is a wonderful place for both runners and walkers.
