\What sparked your interest in training?

I started training to clear my mind, I found the only ‘me’ time I got was when I was training, so it became more and more frequent. I have 2 kids and I also work full time so my life is very busy! I was sponsored within a month of training, my trainer saw potential in me and it has been up hill from there!

How do you stay motivated?

I surround myself with only positivity!

What types of cardio have worked best for you?

Walking with my pram every night along the beach, nothing better to clear your head before bed!

What does your diet consist of?

A lot of raw veggies, fruit and of course my diet is very high in protein! I love cooking so I am always making new variations of meals. As I have 2 children so I am always making different foods for them aswell!

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

I find that my chocolate protein powder is enough of a hit in itself that if I am craving something sweet I will have a shake and feel better! Either that or a sneaky cappuccino!

What are your top 3 favourite exercises?

Chin ups, Squats, and Lunges!

Do you listen to music whilst you train?

Haha I get teased a lot about this! Even whilst training with my trainer, I always have one headphone in- listening to Neyo, Usher or 50 cent! My fav track on repeat is Usher Climax at the moment! Not really the usual work out music!!

What is your training routine like?

I do my weight training in the mornings, I wake up at 530am every day to get my kids off to pre school so I can train before work. I do my cardio at night along the beachfront with my boys in their pram!
I have 3 days a week that I train for longer and harder and use those days to do the muscle groups that take me longer- legs, back, shoulders. I train abs 3 days a week.

Do you set short and long term goals?

Short term- Have fun on stage in my upcoming comp! Enjoy and make the most of every opportunity that comes my way!
Long term- To stay lean, I don’t believe in off seasons so I would like to hope I can maintain my figure year round!

What are you most proud of?

My beautiful boys!

Have you had any obstacles or setbacks towards achieving your goal physique?

I have had 2 children, both pregnancies I put on 28kgs, which (obviously) affected my body, but I believe if you want something bad enough, no matter what it is, you will do whatever you need to, to make it happen! I have bounced back really well and believe giving birth is a natural process and that you need to listen to your body every step of the way!

How do you measure your progress?

On how I feel inside, I don’t even own scales!

Who are your favourite, athletes or fitness models?

Larissa Reis! She has an amazing attitude and oozes confidence!

What supplements would you use/recommend if any?

I love the ladybird range, it’s aimed at woman and the bars taste amazing!!
I also use redbak WPI protein powder- it tastes amazing and even if I wasn’t training I would drink it, it tastes like chocolate milk!

What 3 tips would you give to any woman wanting to get a feminine, CutandJacked physique like yours?

  1. Eat clean
  2. Listen to your body- if you’re tired, rest! I sleep 10-11 hours a night!
  3. Train hard!
