Tell us more about yourself
What are your personal fitness goals?
My personal fitness goals are just to be the greatest that I can be. My fitness journey isn’t for anyone else but myself. I believe that beauty starts within, I look after my body and it looks after me 🙂
I strive to be the fittest and healthiest I can be mentally, emotionally and physically.
How will you use your #BiogenFaceOfFitness ambassadorship to inspire women to lead a healthy / fit lifestyle if you win?
I would use my #BiogenFaceOfFitness ambassadorship to teach women about body and mind positivity. How one person’s journey isn’t a benchmark for someone else’s. I would teach women to start loving their bodies more, and that there is more to living a healthy lifestyle than looking good naked
What health and fitness quote or mantra do you live by?
My protein shake brings the boys to the yard… lol, no.
“I wasn’t born a miracle to be average, I have no desire to fit in, no desire to conform to anyone’s wishes, but I have every desire to improve myself, everyday, every hour, every minute”
Tell us about your fitness lifestyle
I began my fitness lifestyle about 2 years ago. I have never been overweight, but I was incredibly unhealthy… eating fast food 3-4 times a week, the only time I consumed any water was if it was used to make tonic for my gin, I became mentally weak and unmotivated. Until I made a very cliche New Year’s resolution in 2018 to get into shape and eat healthier, something I have said to myself before but never really stuck with it. From January 1st 2019, I have eaten a clean whole food, mostly vegetarian, diet (Except Sunday’s hehe) with strength and HIIT training 5 days a week. I am stronger mentally, emotionally and physically more than I have ever been in my life.
I know my fitness journey has only just begun, but I am so excited to show myself what I am really capable of!
Why do you think you’re the Biogen Face of Fitness?
I believe I am the Biogen Face of Fitness because fitness is more than just a hobby… fitness is my therapy. Fitness has helped me with so many aspects in my life and I am so happy I made the decision to live a healthier lifestyle. Being the Biogen Face of Fitness would mean that I could share my passion with other women just like me, that there is more to fitness than just looking good… I want to empower women, I want to show them that being healthy isn’t just a salad a day and tons of cardio. Being healthy can be delicious, nutritious and fun when you understand how your body works, having this title would enable me to reach more women to educate them about the benefits of a healthy lifestyle.
