There was a time when models simply didn’t eat to maintain their figure. In recent times a more athletic, toned body has gained popularity. For me, this is a welcome change as I prefer to keep my body fit, healthy and well-fueled through proper diet and exercise.
Three days in Western Australia have been full of action.The State of WA is known as one of the two best Muay Thai territories in Australia. While Melbourne has been known as the kickboxing centre of the country, WA and Queensland produce the largest number of Australia’s Muay Thai representatives.
I like to incorporate some weight training into my fitness regime for strength and toning, and I love anything that works my glutes (who doesn't?). I've found that the exercises below target my glutes in the best possible way. Plus they also work my legs and core.
Last week, I had the pleasure of experiencing a spin class at Bodhi & Ride to test out some new Adidas gear. It was an early morning session so I was a bit tired on arrival, but by the end of it I was full of energy and ready to get stuck into my day!
On Saturday morning, I started my day with the killer 'Bayside Booty' class at Total Reformation's health and wellness studio in Brighton, Melbourne. And before I get into the details, let me tell you that 48 hours later my booty is still burning (in the best way!).
Recently, I've noticed that a few little things have actually made a big difference to my fitness. You might think it's all about working out, but a couple of the things actually have nothing to do with exercise. My list is probably blindingly obvious to some of you, but I thought I'd still share my thoughts.
Earlier this year, I travelled to Thailand to spend a month at Por Promin Muay Thai Camp in Hua Hin. It was one of the best experiences in my life so far. Tough? Yes. Rewarding? Incredibly. Not just because of what I learnt (and the increase in my fitness); I also met some great people.
It was 6:15am when I rocked up to Winter Olympian Steph Prem's Premium Performance pop-up Pilates studio to try out her bootcamp class. I'd downed a shot of leftover cold drip from my fridge before leaving the house (too early to show my pillow-creased face in a cafe) and was waiting for the caffeine to kick in. I was feeling pretty tired and stale.
