Freelance writer Penny Carroll grew up working the floor at her parents’ health-food store and continues to share her enthusiasm for wellness via Australia’s best-known magazines. From elliptigo bikes to vibrational yoga, she’s tried just about every fitness trend in the name of work, but reckons nothing can compare to an early morning run in the great outdoors. When she’s not investigating the psychology of sports performance or trialling the latest wellbeing hacks, you can find her sneaking off for avo toast at her local café or taking her beloved vintage bike for a spin down to the beach.
