Name: Monique Dash
Sports Passion: Teaching aerobics
What She Wears and Why: "Because I teach a dance-based type of aerobics called funk, I like the layered look - boxer shorts, bike shorts and a crop top - because it gives me a street feeling. It's not the standard leotards and tight."
Name: Jodi Adams
Sports Passion: Rock Climbing
What She Wears and Why: "Climbing requires a lot of flexibility and movement. You have to wear comfortable clothes, but they have to be snug, too. You have to be able to see your feet. The one thing I don't like to wear is nylon - especially those shiny tights. I prefer cotton with Lycra."
Name: Barbara Schlaks
Sports Passion: Working as a personal trainer at Physical Focus

Sports Passion: Watching the pros
What She Wears and Why: "I like to wear sport clothes everywhere - Lycra leggings and tops, tennis shoes, a baseball cap. I love horseback riding, swimming and boxing. And because I model, I'm running around a lot, going from go-sees to the gym and back to more go-sees. This uniform is great because potantial clients can see that I'm in shape."
