Exploring Michigan’s great outdoors and getting a great workout in while doing so is what Cari Draft’s company EcoTrek Fitness is all about. Cari, who lives in Spring Lake with her husband Jeff and their son Austin, is one of west Michigan’s most active and community-involved personal fitness trainers. She talks with Heather about her running and fitness journey, as well as the ways in which she is helping others embrace an active and healthy lifestyle. Her EcoTrek Fitness business now operates out of several locations in Michigan as well as in West Virginia, and she is behind a line of whole food bars (they’re delicious!) She’s a popular fitness guru on Facebook and Twitter, with thousands of followers who know her as @FitGirlCari.
