I always did sports conditioning as a high school and college athlete. However, I started really working out as a young adult in my early 20's. I was married and working full time but was really desiring to get active again since retiring from college sports. I had not necessarily gained ALOT of weight but I was feeling out of shape. I was off an on with my commitment until after the birth of my first child when I had baby weight to lose. I became much more purposeful and committed to a regular workout program.
My work out of choice is EVERYTHING! I currently mix it up each week. From lifting weights to spinning to Pilate to HIIT to Core Strengthening to Cardio classes to Elliptical to Yoga to Sprinting! I lift about 5 days, cardio 3-4 days, yoga, pilates, and core strength every week.
I haven't done any races except a 5k one time! But I'd like to do an obstacle race some time. I really like free weights but by other favorite piece of equipment is the stability ball. But you said GEAR so then maybe my workout tunes from my phone and my arm band!
As far as dieting and nutrition, it has been quite a journey. I am currently clean eating and trying to stick to first generational foods but I am doing a 3 week experiment of no gluten, red meat, artificial sweeteners except STEVIA, and no dairy. But with this I am still eating PLENTY of calories! My favorite cheat food is ICE CREAM! Either and Chocolate Oreo Blast from Sonic, Mocha Chip Blizzard from DQ, or Mocha Chip Ice Cream by Starbuck's. I usually have a post workout smoothie and I take a natural pre-workout before I hit the gym.

As an aerobics instructor and personal trainer I talk to folks that are just beginning their football journey. My best advice is BABY STEPS! If a person wants to make permanent change then they must incorporate it slowly into their lifestyle little by little. Before they know it they've transformed their lifestyle and lives!
As far as bucket list: it would be an obstacle race. I hope to hit one this June or fall.
Something ALOT of people don't know about me is that I used to sing! I recorded the cd and wrote the music and lyrics for every song. I used to do concerts and even sang the National Anthem for the California Angels several times.
