Meet the Team — Kate

What's your role at Active Truth? 

I am the digital gal! I work on anything to do with the website and email marketing, both design and functionality. Also, I'm the super under-qualified in house IT support. 

How did you come to work at Active Truth? 

I'd been lucky to be an Active Truth advocate and customer for a while. One day I found myself having coffee with AT founder Nadia and the next, I had a new job! It was meant to be!

We know you shouldn't have favourites  .... but which are the best tights?

The Power Tights in Wine are without a doubt my FAVOURITE colour/print we've ever released! That said, I'll always have a soft spot for a Smart Pocket style.

Favourite Tune?

I think this is the hardest question on the list - I can't pick just one, I love everything! But one of my favourite artist on repeat at the moment (and always) is Missy Higgins. 

Favourite quote?

"You're braver than you believe, stronger than you seem and smarter than you think." - Winnie the Pooh, always has good life advice. 

Best life hack?

Keep your chocolate/treat stash in the vegetable crisper because your kids will never find it. (definitely learnt this one off my own mother)

What is your favourite thing about living in Brisbane?

The community, whether it's your gym, local neighbourhood, book club, it's easy to surround yourself with friendly people. 

If you could do something active anywhere in the world, what would it be?

Ice skate in Central Park, New York City.

Are you a podcast convert?

Nope! I've never listened to a podcast in my life, but the team at ATHQ are slowly convincing me to try it. 

Instagram or Facebook? Who is your favourite personality/brand to follow?

I'm an Instagram addict, one of my favourite accounts to follow is @louieluxe, she's a local creative and her products/feed/vibes are stunning and inspiring. 

What is your favourite way to get the endorphins going?

A hard 12RNDS workout. Or long walk with someone I love — my mum or sister or friend

If you could go for a walk with anyone, who would that person be?

Tom Hanks. I have a super platonic admiration for him for an unknown reason (probably just from watching Sleepless in Seattle too many times).

Favourite snack or meal?

Anything that I didn't have to make myself.

What is your star sign?

Cancer! And I am basically a text book Cancerian. 

Are tights pants?

Yessss. Always. 

Favourite book/blog?

Any sort of crime or thriller novel — I love the suspense. 

What is important to you in a pair of leggings?

A high waist — ain't nobody got time to hold onto their pants during a HIIT workout. 

Introvert or extrovert?

Introvert in every sense of the word. 

Favourite childhood memory?

When we got our first family dog. My Dad bought her home in a cardboard box and asked us to help him 'unload' things from his car — turns out we unloaded a puppy!

Top workout tip?

Do it early in the morning, as soon as you wake up before your brain really understands what you're doing and has time to back out. 

Pockets or no pockets?

No pockets for working out in the gym — pockets for everything else. 

Favourite Aussie small businesses?

Louie LuxeVagaryBon Maxie

What is your secret pleasure?

Watching an entire television series from the start, every time a new season comes out, cause I like to be refreshed and up-to-date.

Must-watch Netflix series?

Jane the Virgin — hilarious and heartwarming and absolutely insane.

OR Money Heist — it's in Spanish so you have to watch it with subtitles, but I don't think I've ever been so addicted to a series, it's so clever and well written. 

Favourite playlist

Mellow sing-a-long songs with beautiful melodies — perfect for easy listening.
