I used to be a dancer so I always had a fit lifestyle. I didn't get into gym until 2008 when I became a personal trainer. In 2010 I entered my 1st fitness competition and that's when my hardcore training started.
What keeps me motivated is my family and my amazing fiancé Gabriel Sey, who is also a WBFF Pro. When I feel low and I don't feel like training he is always there pushing me to keep on going. I call him my angel.
Lol cardio? I'm going to be totally honest, I don't do cardio. If I do it's 10 minutes before I start my weight session. If I want to get a cardiovascular session in I would rather do a circuit. What can I say... I love lifting weights.
My favourite healthy recipe would be a sweet potato shepherds pie. Actually any recipe that involves mince I love.
My diet consists of lean meat, like chicken, mince, steak, white fish, sweet potato and basmati rice. I don't eat a lot of bread or white potato. Oh and of course my cheat meal every week. That's a must.
I have a huge sweet tooth and I find it really hard going without a sugar fix. So what I have found that helps me are these amazing Atkins bars that are low in everything. Also making protein cookies. Without these I would find it extremely difficult with competition prep.
My top 3 favourite exercises are pull-ups because not many women can do them. Single leg press because I can feel my Glutes working every time and clean & press because it engages every muscle.
If I'm training by myself I have to listen to music, it's what gets me through that last set. On my playlist at the moment I have R&B, funky house, slow jams, kings of Leon, a mixture of everything.
Monday: Calves and quads 5x5
Tuesday: Back 4 sets 8-10 reps
Wednesday: Glutes 5x5
Thursday: Shoulder 4 sets 8-10 reps
Friday: Hamstrings and calves 5x5
I don't isolate my biceps or triceps often because my arms react quickly to exercise and my arms get huge.
I have one big goal and that's to improve on my legs and glutes as you can see by my weekly workout. I do fitness competitions, which I class as my short-term goals. They give me something to train towards.
At the moment I'm so happy that I finally got my pro card, it makes all the dieting and training worthwhile. Outside the gym I'm proud that I'm a self-employed personal trainer and that Gabriel and I have a business that we are striving to make successful. ( iam-fearless.com ) "Fearless Fitness Academy"
The only set back I have had in regards to my physique were my legs. But since my 1st comp in 2010 I made sure they were my 1st priority and that they were in proportion with my upper body.
I measure my progress with pictures. I believe pictures can show you your progression better than scales mirrors etc.
My favourite athletes would be women that compete in athletics, like Denise Lewis and Florence Griffith. It takes so much hard work, dedication and determination.
I don't tend to use a lot of supplements but I can't go without:
Multivitamins - Grenades ration pack
Pre-workout - Grenades 50cal
Protein - Reflex micro whey
To get a CutAndjacked physique like mine I would say...
