MY TRAINING

MY TRAINING…

My activity level throughout my life has been very up and down. I started dancing at the age of 3, and fell in love with it. Throughout primary school I danced about 4/5 days a week. When I hit mid-high school, dancing took a back seat. I was still going but only about 1 to 2 days a week, and would skip out when I could – being a teenager was my number one priority!

I moved schools in Year 10 and rediscovered my love for dance. I changed dancing schools as well for something fresh and started back with my 4-day-a-week regime, as well as doing it in school as a subject. My activity level was up again without even realising it, as it was something I loved.

Feeling strong, powerful and content is the means to a much more fulfilling life compared to an insure one constantly chasing an unrealistic ideal.

When I got to the middle of Year 11, I decided I might possibly want to pursue dance as a career after school. I knew if I was serious about this I needed to work my butt off to make up for all the lost years. At the beginning of Year 12 I joined a gym, as well as cleaning up my diet.

I began at first like many newbies to the gym life, doing rounds of cardio with a few abdominal crunches. “Calories in, calories out – right?” .. hello no! It was boring, tiring and lacked results… so I strived for something new!

Instagram has been my best friend in terms of the way  I train now. I found many different fitness accounts and simply copied their workouts. This is how I discovered circuit/hiit training and fell in love with it! I found a new way to train that was time efficient and gave me the results I wanted. It incorporated resistance training alongside cardio, and didn’t take hours.. perfect!

This new passion put me back on the right track. I wanted to be strong and fit.. not thin!

I want young girls to understand the importance of looking after their bodies. I’ve been through that terrible mind-game of not accepting myself. I know we all say it a lot, but social media has a sly way of making us feel like we are not enough, or we need to look a certain way to ‘fit in’.

Feeling strong, powerful and content is the means to a much more fulfilling life compared to an insecure one, constantly chasing an unrealistic ideal. I know this is easier said than done, I really do!

As an 18 year old (especially being a model) I still find myself regularly questioning the way I look and who I am as a person. The quest to balance and self-confidence is a journey with great rewards! Other people’s judgments are worthless, but YOUR worth is forever!
