How Did You Get Started In Health And Fitness?
I started training 8 years ago! I had a lot of back pain at that time and after consulting with my Doctor, decided going to the gym would be a good way to strengthen my back. There was a girl at the gym who studied FitnessEconomics, and since learning that, it’s what i’ve been studying too.

What Is Your Diet Like?
I’m really not very strict on myself. I try to eat only 3 big meals and between that, I eat products which are rich in protein with no carbohydrates.
Meal 1: Soya Quark with Protein Flakes and some Protein flavour or 2 Wholewheat toasts with chicken breast
Meal 2: Rice with Beef or Fish
Meal 3: Vegetables with Bacon
Snacks: Protein Shakes.
On training days, I eat carbohydrates in the evening and I like to drink a protein shake! ☺
What Are Your Favourite Exercises/Tips For Developing That ‘Booty’?
Squats of course! I love Squats and they train your booty and your legs the best. I love one leg cable extensions. They are very intensive and train the part of your booty which lifts it up 😉
What Are Your Favourite Exercises For Sculpting Your Abs?
I love doing Russian Twists. They not only train my lower abs and obliques, but also the muscle which connects to the lower back. So people who have a problem there should really try this exercise, but carefully with correct form.
Give Your Best 3 Health Tips That People Can Implement Right Now:
1. Drink minimum 3 litres of water.
2. Smile and be happy when you wake up ☺
3. Don’t overexercise! It will kill your ambition and run down your immune system.
How Do You Handle Setbacks & Bad Days?
I don’t take them seriously. I know my muscles will grow even on bad days, because even a small or bad workout is better than no workout! But if you’re feeling sick, Stay at home!!! Your body needs the rest ☺

Being fit is my job and I love to work with people, to help them be happier and see positive results. Also, seeing other women whose bodies are so much better, makes me a lot more motivated!
