Where did your passion for fitness come from?
Once I graduated high school, I actually started studying beauty therapy. However, my love of sport and basketball lead to me to Personal Training, and that’s when I discovered how much I loved helping people to become healthier and happier! I have never looked back since, for me it was a great life changing decision. I wouldn’t trade it for anything in the world.
Did you always have such an amazing body?
Definitely not. I had a really tough time at the beginning of high school. I was bullied for being “too skinny” and “weak” by my classmates. This is when I turned this negative energy from my peers into a positive lifestyle change for myself. I have trained researched for years to get my body to where it is today. Now I’m in the position where I can use this information to educate girls to feel happy and confident, like I do now!
Cardio or strength training? Which do you think is more important?
It’s so important to understand that both are vital. One training method will not surpass another as both have different benefits. In conjunction with recovery, there should be a balance between the two training methods.
What annoys you?
People who workout once and complain they don’t have an amazing body. It’s as simple as that.
What does your daily diet look like?
I believe that variety is really important in your diet, so I always try and change it up with what I eat. Despite this my days are quite structured so I generally do plan out what I’ll eat for the day, an average day would look like this:
Breakfast: Toast with poached eggs, avocado with fresh lemon juice, & spinach leaves plus a cup of berry herbal tea.
After morning shift: A piece of fruit
Lunch: Chicken wrap with homemade tzatziki, tomato, lettuce & onion.
Afternoon snack: Tuna & corn salad a piece of fruit.
Dinner: My absolute favourite meal is a fluffy lemon & rice soup called Avgolemono, with chicken.
Evening: I always have a cup of tea in the evening
What is your top tip for losing & toning stomach fat?
Like I say a lot of the time with most advice I give, be consistent! Keep up a regular training program as well as keeping your eating patterns consistent. Your body and your belly will love you for it!
