What exercises comprise your fitness regime or workout routine you may wish to share?
Three days a week of leg workouts. I changed this in the last year and it has made a world of difference in my physique. I squat and deadlift regularly, full kinetic-chain exercises, lots of posterior movements. I can tell you older don’t matter and being female lifting heavy weights is the best thing you can do.
How do you train your abs? One secret to your toned body.
I’m a true believer abs are made in the kitchen, although I do abs to failure every day. I mix up the movements, although main focus in the transverse abdominals and rectus abdominals and keep away from oblique’s as my goal is to make my waist look smaller not thicker.
Do you take a special diet or have a strict menu that you follow to remain healthy and physically fit?
In contest prep I’m extremely strict, there is no cheating. I see food as fuel. I find it easier to do when results happen; the science behind the diet mesmerizes me. I can’t get enough of it and to watch myself go through it is exciting. In the off season I stick to healthy fresh foods as well as weekly indulge. I’ve never been one to eat out much besides hunting down the best burger I can find.

You have glowing skin and gorgeous hair. Share with us your hair care and skincare routine.
My skin and hair is a product of my food intake and fitness routine in addition to the amount of water I drink and sweat daily. Plus I have a best friend that is a hair stylist!
I’m big on anti-aging. I take collagen daily, I have my blood tested regularly since turning 40, It keeps all my levels (being vitamins or hormones) in check giving me the ability to take care of things if their off before they get out of hand.
I love Vit C serums for my face and @tk_beaute_ takes care of my regular facials. Lately I’ve been a fan of Ordinary Skincare products.
