|We can see through your social media that you have incorporated health & fitness into your everyday life. How have you managed this so easily?
Haha, it looks easy but it does indeed require some effort and discipline. With all the temptations of the big city it’s very easy to skip the gym and go for a few drinks with friends (and there’s nothing wrong with that, I am often guilty of this myself! So the best one can do for themselves is being realistic about the changes they want to make, start making small day-to-day changes and not being too hard on themselves!
In terms of fitness, I love to mix and match and keep it short and fun. The last thing you’d want is be bored (and our mind and body do get bored and get used to routines easily so introducing some variety to the fitness routine is a good idea). I often exercise with Zova fitness app (an Australian app that helps women stay fit and active with a set of guided exercises) - I learn new exercises with the app and I can exercise both at home and in the gym so I don’t really have any excuses to be lazy! :) In fact, I am working on my own curated set of exercises for the app!
Do you have any advice for people who would like to do the same?
It’s really about finding what excites you and keeps you going. In my opinion, the key is to make small healthier choices day-by-day and thinking long-term, as well as keeping active through the activities you enjoy. If you don’t like treadmills - go running outdoors, if you are scared of cycling in the city - go to an indoor spin class, and when in doubt - just go for a long walk!
We've noticed you're into a variety of things from yoga to indoor cycling. What is your favourite health and fitness activity?
My top three favourite things are having quick workouts with Zova app - whether it’s in the gym, at home or outdoor, spin bootcamp classes (I love the energy I put in and it’s a real full-body workout - try Belinda Shipman’s Edge Cycle Bootcamp class - it’s insanely crazy!) and yoga for mind and body relaxation and balance (I enjoyed a WellbeingYogi retreat in Sussex with Adventure Yogi and Suryalila Yoga Retreat Centre in Andalusia in Spain).
