Tell us more about yourself
What are your personal fitness goals?
My goals are very maintainable. I try to stay fit, healthy and toned all year round. I don’t do anything in extremes but focus on health and what my body is telling me. I try to enter events throughout the year to give me something to work towards, like half marathons or paddling events. I generally visit the gym about 4-5 days a week, while still giving myself the freedom to try out new sports and disciplines.
How will you use your #BiogenFaceOfFitness ambassadorship to inspire women to lead a healthy / fit lifestyle if you win?
I would use social media to reach more people to educate, inspire and motivate them through the content I share. A dream of mine would be to host events throughout the country to inspire women to love themselves and their bodies and educate them on healthy living and exercise. I have a fairly well-established brand in my hometown, but because of the way society views women, most of my clients are males. I would love to have the opportunity to specialize in women’s fitness and do more women-focused events and classes.
What health and fitness quote or mantra do you live by?
Exercise because you love your body not because you hate it.
Tell us about your fitness lifestyle
As a biokineticist who runs my own practice, I am in the gym all day, every day! I love training and focus a lot on core stabilisation and glute strengthening. I like to keep things interesting and keep myself motivated, so I change things up every once in a while. I make sure I am well rounded and fit in many disciplines. I generally train 6 times a week – the 6thsession is active recovery. I have a tremendous sweet tooth but thankfully have learned many tips and tricks along the way to limit the amount of cravings I get and satisfy them in the most healthy way possible.
Why do you think you’re the Biogen Face of Fitness?
I am already in the health and wellness industry. I know what it means to ‘live the brand’, to look the part and mirror an image of health and fitness. This is my job and passion all in one. I have a great amount of knowledge and experience behind my name. I am able to educate people on the importance of fitness and the best ways to move their body for their specific goals! It is an absolute dream and privilege to be able to reach more people and have a positive impact on their lives!
