The Hadads are typical 9-to-5ers. Toni, a 1983 AHS graduate, is 47 and works full-time as an art director at Timberland in Stratham, N.H. where she spends her lunch hour running fitness boot camps. She’s also a freelance art director and designer who is currently redesigning the Memorial Hall Library logo. She is the force behind her coffee shop’s attractive seasonal decorations.
Rich Hadad is a 1987 AHS graduate, and is a certified public accountant. The couple has two children, Evan, 8 and Skylar,13.
It’s living by-the-minute for this busy couple as the alarm goes off at 4 a.m. and working out at Yang’s begins for Toni around 4:30 a.m. At 6 a.m., she is at Ultimate Perk, making sure it’s ready for business, then it’s back home to get the kids ready for school. She works from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and goes to bed at 9:30 p.m.
Sure, it’s a demanding schedule, but she loves it.
“You’ve got to move,” she said. “If you have five minutes, you can find 30 minutes in a day for a workout. So, do it even it’s early in the morning...I do it because it’s fun, I do it with my husband and I want to be around for my kids.”
