Ms. Namita Nayyar: What is your motivation to take a multi-faceted personality of a fitness model, personal trainer, media personality and nutritional expert ?
Ms. Alexa Towersey: Attitude is everything. This is the philosophy I live by, and the one in which I teach my clients to embrace – both inside the gym and in their everyday lives. I want to empower women to be fit and strong – psychological strength is just as important as physical strength. Fitness means different things to different people, but if you can develop a good work ethic in the gym, it will translate into every other part of your life. When it comes to me, I’m far more concerned with genuine fitness, as opposed to the appearance of fitness. There is a lot of misinformation out there, so I like that I get to challenge the status quo, and hopefully inspire others to do the same.
Ms. Namita Nayyar: You have glowing skin and gorgeous hairs. Do you take some kind of skin treatment to keep it young and glowing and secondly what you do to your hairs to make them look so stunning?
Ms. Alexa Towersey: I’m always in the gym, or out and about running around, so i’ve never been into makeup, and I think that goes a long way in being able to keep my skin clear and fresh. I’m a big advocate of taking care of yourself from the inside out, from the food you eat, to the water you drink, to the sleep you get, to the products you put on your skin. Most people forget that the skin is the biggest organ in the body, so it’s just as important to nourish it – I’m a fan of natural, organic products – my favorite brand is Acure.
I’m also aware that budget factors into most people’s choices, so organic coconut oil or sesame oil are fantastic natural and cheap skincare alternatives.
Ms. Namita Nayyar: You have done bold photo shoots. What advice you wish to give to the women of today to be body confident in order to do such bold modeling?
Ms. Alexa Towersey: It’s such an exciting time to be involved in the fitness industry, especially as a woman, when the past couple of years, has really seen a shift in how we want to feel, look and train. The attitude has definitely shifted towards being strong and capable, and having a body that reflects this. Lifting heavy and training hard is now embraced more than ever. There is nothing more rewarding that seeing a woman be empowered in the gym, and then seeing how this translates into her attitude towards the rest of her life.
If I can inspire women to want to be fit, healthy and strong by challenging the concept of how a woman’s body should look, as portrayed in mainstream media, then so be it. Bring it on!
