My Best of Indy: Katie Stam Irk
My perspective on health and fitness hasn’t changed much since the Miss America competition. I’ve always been very conscious about exercise and what I eat. I work out at Indianapolis Fitness Studios with my trainer, Amy Kraner, three days a week, then attend her bootcamp on Saturday mornings. Right after I had my daughter, my goal was to lose the 40 pounds of baby weight I had put on, so I did some extra cardio during that period. Biking and elliptical were my machines of choice.
I don’t go to the spa very often—usually only when I have a major event coming up. But I love Salon 01 for facials. And I do body scrubs at home. I get all of my products at Bath Junkie at the Carmel City Center.
Of course, what you put in your body is more important than what you put on it. I consider food to be a beauty product. We grow a lot in our garden at our home, and we shop every week at the Carmel Farmers Market. My advice: Eat well, sleep well, exercise, and wear fake eyelashes.
