How did you get started?
My fitness journey started the minute I entered school, I was playing multiple sports and involved in many extracurricular activities such as; tennis, basketball, track, swimming, gymnastics, ballet, and karate.
Where does your motivation come from?
I think you must start anything you like to do by motivating yourself, through motivation and repetition you discover how truly passionate you are about something. That is how I feel about my fitness journey developing into a healthy lifestyle. But of course, I found motivation through all the coaches and trainers I have met along the way. They have all taught me so much and I carry those lessons with me till date.
How do you feel your flexibility helps you both in and out of the gym?
Flexibility is extremely important to me, I associate it with things in my life as they fluctuate because that’s what’s real. Flexibility has taught me to stay present, and feel free even on the days I can’t touch my toes. It’s helped me flow through difficult times.
What workout routine has worked best for you?
I can’t say there is one workout routine that has worked best for me as my training varies on a day to day basis. A mix of things between yoga, pilates and strength training is usually what I do on a weekly basis.
If you had to pick only 3 exercises what would they be and why?
3 exercises would be: Plank, deadlift, downward dog (yes it’s an exercise)
What is your diet like?
80/20 diet, meaning that 80% of the time I’m eating healthy foods; oats, veggies, fish, grains. 20% I eat the not so healthy foods such as pizza, pancakes, ice cream 😉 basically 20% sugar!
What’s the one food you couldn’t live without, and how do you handle food cravings?
I have a huge sweet tooth and I really have trouble finishing a meal without something sweet at the end. I would say probably ice cream. I handle the craving by substituting it with something that tastes similar like maybe yoghurt with a piece of fruit chopped and mixed in.
What’s something not many people know about you?
no comment on this question, sorry 🙂
one of my favorite quotes–
“Security is mostly a superstition. it does not exist in nature, nor do do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing.” – Helen Keller
