A little over four years ago, after Megan Cushing (@meganmcushing) had her second child with hubby and former pro footballer (and current Texans assistant strength and conditioning coach) Brian Cushing, she made a decision: “I had always been very active,” says the former college soccer star and NCAA national champion. “But I [decided to] truly make health and wellness a lifestyle.” Since, the mom of two has documented her wellness journey via her well-followed social media platforms. And this summer, naturally, Megan Cushing will head the team as general manager at Barry’s Bootcamp opening in River Oaks. Here, Cushing shares more of her wellness secrets.
