Seeking fitness inspiration? NASA astronauts Mike Hopkins and Rick Mastracchio, along with four fitness professionals and athletes, will share workout tips during a special Google+ Hangout from space at 12:15 p.m. EST Thursday, Feb. 6.

The Hangout can be seen live on NASA's Google+ page or on NASA Television. In addition to Hopkins and Mastracchio, participants are:

-- Jeannette Epps, NASA astronaut
-- Curt Tomasevicz, U.S. Olympic bobsledder, participating from Sochi, Russia
-- Rich Froning Jr., CrossFit Games Champion
-- Jared Crick, Houston Texans professional football player
-- Peter Moore, Men's Health magazine

Hopkins, a lifelong fitness enthusiast, is sharing his workouts from space via the “Train Like An Astronaut” Facebook page and YouTube. Space Station astronauts workout at least two hours each day in order to minimize bone and muscle loss in space. They have three different devices they can use to maintain fitness – a treadmill, a stationary bicycle or the Advanced Resistive Exercise Device (ARED) Hopkins plans to demonstrate the ARED from the Tranquility module during the hangout. 

You may submit questions on Twitter and Google+ in advance and during the Hangout using the hashtag #askNASA .
