CutAndJacked.com Interview:


Fitness Model Kelly Rennie

How and when did you start training?

From a young age I've always been active with exercise and sports. Gymnastics, Muay Thai Kickboxing and I also played Rugby for five years in my early twenties. I was a member of a gym on and off after that but it wasn’t till May last year that I decided to get series and start competing in fitness & Bodybuilding.

Are you or have you ever been a cardio bunny and avoided the free-weight section?

I first walked into a gym when I was 14, I went straight to the weights section and have been there ever since.. Although their was a period for a year or two in my early twenties when I was stuck to a treadmill but then I came to my senses and started lifting again and that’s when results started to happen.

How long do you spend in the gym during
a typical workout?

I don’t like spending any longer than 45mins to 1 hour in the gym, I feel as though you can get a good enough workout is that space of time. When you have to train up to 2/3 times a day spending any longer in the gym makes life hard. My workouts are intense and I come out every time knowing that I've worked hard enough, so therefore it works for me.

What’s the longest break you’ve had from training?

Longest break I have had is two weeks due to an operation, I enjoyed the rest the though.

What are the biggest obstacles or setbacks have you had to overcome in your life?

I would say probably the operation, I would just call it an obstacle, as I do believe everything happens for a reason. Taking a step back, resting and focusing on the mind can only be a good thing.

How do you manage to stay motivated?

Well I currently own and run two gyms. I have a lot of people that look up to me, so therefore I turn that into my motivation to always keep myself in shape and live a healthy happy life. I want to be a proud ambassador in the health and fitness industry that people can look up to and inspire to follow.

How do you deal with cravings for junk foods,
sweets and salty food?

I’m not a huge sweet tooth and the thought of junk food just doesn’t bother me anymore because when I do eat it I feel so awful the next day its just not worth it. Although I'm a sucker for things like salty peanuts and if I was out for dinner I do love my Thai food but most probably wouldn’t consider that as junk food depending on what you’re ordering.

Who are your favourite, athletes or fitness models?

I now have so many, but my main ones are of course Jamie Eason and Miryah Jade Scott.

What types of cardio have worked best for you?

Well I don’t do a lot of cardio and when I do its mainly up hill Power Walking because my knees aren’t the best. I love my HIIT workouts a lot which gives me my cardio hit.

What is your training routine like?

I do cardio 6 days a week, generally power walk for 45 minutes in the morning or I jump into one of the boot camp classes (interval) down at my gym. I like to keep my cardio varied and exciting. The boot camp classes change every time, so I can get an all over workout without having to think about it. I also hit the weight hard 4 days a week.

What does your diet consist of?

Meal 1: Banana, Protein Shake
Meal 2: 2 Eggs, 2 Egg Whites
Meal 3: Chicken & Sweet Potato
Meal 4: Tin of Mackerel & Veg
Meal 5: Fish/Chicken with Salad
Meal 6: Some type of Protein with fruit.

  2. Get off the cardio machines for hours on end and start lifting weights, will give you more tone and curves for that sexy body!
