FFFC: Please introduce yourself to our readers.
BC: Hi! I’m Buffie Carruth also known as Buffie the Body. I’m the owner of Bodynomics.com, a health and fitness site for women.
FFFC: How did you get started in fitness?
BC: After leaving the hip hop industry, I decided I wanted to help females stay in shape and live healthier lifestyles. So I became a CPT through the National Academy of Sports Medicine in 2012.
FFFC: How do you balance making time to get in your workouts with the demands of your career and personal life?
BC: There won’t be a career or personal life if you lose your health! So I always make staying healthy and fit a priority.
FFFC: How would you characterize your body type?
BC: Full-figured, flat tummy and nice arms. I exercise regularly but never considered myself the athletic type.
FFFC: What is the biggest misconception about your body type?
BC: I’ve been called “overweight” because my BMI is not as low as some health experts think it should be. I was never considered overweight until I became a part of the fitness industry.
FFFC: What is your favorite exercise routine?
BC: I love lifting weights and using my own body weight to build strength.
FFFC: What do you consider the most useful workout equipment?
BC: Dumbbells, jump ropes, barbells and a bench.
FFFC: What general tips do you have for the average woman trying to balance family, career with a fitness lifestyle?
BC: If exercising is not priority in life you will continue to make excuses to not to engage in it. You have to decide what’s important. Unfortunately, being fit and healthy is still not important to some of us considering the statistics on diabetes and heart disease.
FFFC: Do you have any words of wisdom to share with our readers who struggle with poor eating and drinking choices and habits?
BC: I don’t have the best eating habits but I’m consistently taking steps towards a better diet. I haven’t completely avoided the things I love to eat, I just try to eat less of it and more of the right foods.
FFFC: What is Bodynomics?
BC: A health and fitness website with tons of videos showing women how to properly exercise and get in shape.
