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.
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.
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.
Longest break I have had is two weeks due to an operation, I enjoyed the rest the though.
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.
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.
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.
I now have so many, but my main ones are of course Jamie Eason and Miryah Jade Scott.
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.
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.
