Tell us more about yourself
What are your personal fitness goals?
I love the skin I am in and feel any woman out there should feel the same. While we all have room for improvement, every day we have a choice, so all I want to be is better than yesterday. Whether that is just drinking more water, or physically pushing myself harder today than I did yesterday.
How will you use your #BiogenFaceOfFitness ambassadorship to inspire women to lead a healthy / fit lifestyle if you win?
Being an ambassador means being the brand and leading by example by also living a healthy and active lifestyle. I want to be real with who I am and be proof to women that no matter your age, and whether you’re an athlete or just want to live a healthy and active lifestyle , that Biogen can provide both options.
What health and fitness quote or mantra do you live by?
“Thank you to all the people who didn’t believe in me. I had to prove you wrong.”
Tell us about your fitness lifestyle
I try to maintain a balance between proper nutrition and training with one rest day a week. I do CrossFit on Monday, Wednesday, and Fridays, and on Tuesdays and Thursdays I am either on a Wattbike or spinning bike, my indoor trainer, or I will go for a jog. On Saturdays my husband and I will be out on our MTBs. Sundays we take our border collie on an outing to do a hiking trail, or we will take him to a dog park and spend the day. I love being outdoors, and enjoy making healthy meals and snacks.
Why do you think you’re the Biogen Face of Fitness?
I want to drive, motivate and empower all women. I aspire to inspire I want someone to look at me and say “because of you, I never gave up.” Although I am in my 30s, I believe that leading a healthy and active lifestyle has got nothing to do with the number on the scale, but everything tp do about how you feel. I want women to focus on exactly that, because we deserve to build each other up and feel confident. I believe that the opportunity and platform this competition gives, will allow me to be that role model to other women, and to live my dream and take my health and fitness journey to the next level.
