When are you your most genuine self?
I can honestly say I am my most genuine self all day every day. I feel that I have really come into my own in terms of confidence and self-love, which has allowed me to stay true to who I am and what I believe in. Authenticity is currently my main focus and I work hard to separate myself from the competition by being nothing but my true genuine self.
Why is fitness important to you?
Fitness is important to me for many reasons; it provides me with structure, drive, commitment and consistency. It is also a huge mental release and promoter of self-love. I also love the social aspect of it. Fitness has introduced me to many inspiring and motivating women and these introductions have grown into meaningful friendships.
What’s your go-to workout?
I am currently four weeks into a three-month training program with a personal trainer. Our main focus is mobility and really honing in on form and proper movements. This program will eventually expand into heavy weight lifting. In addition to this, I also enjoy a spin class for that extra cardio.
Do you take your protein in a smoothie, or just mixed with water?
I always use unsweetened natural almond milk and add as many vegetables as possible when I have access to a blender.
What’s your mantra (or favourite quote)?
You can’t change without a challenge. You have to fight through the pain and work hard to correct old habits and see what you are truly made of.
Which vegetable is your spirit animal?
I would have to say anything in the hot pepper family – I can be surprisingly sweet, but I’m usually a little spicy and am a great addition to any dish.
Favourite Genuine Health product and why?
Definitely the chocolate fermented vegan proteins+ powder.
