Modeling involves doing bold photo-shoots. How you are so body confident and advise your compatriots?
To be honest, I have not always been so confident in my body. When I was a gymnast, I had a coach that told me he could tell I had an ice cream sundae. Being a teenage girl, this messed with my head and relationship with food for a little bit. Luckily I had amazing and supportive parents who got me back on track.
Getting into CrossFit was definitely a great thing for me and my body image. As a gymnast, I was always one of the more muscular (if not the most muscular) girls on the team. After I finished college and was done with my gymnastics career, I thought I wanted to be skinny. After starting CrossFit, I realized that I wanted to be strong and muscular. Now I am so proud of my body and what I have been able to do with it. This is not only true for how I look but also what I have been able to do performance wise.
With all of this being said, the piece that I would love for others to take away is that, you should be proud of your body! Do not let anyone else tell you how you should look. If you are comfortable in your own skin, that is what matters. There is only one of you, embrace it and love yourself!
How do you train your abs? One secret to your toned body.
I train my abs by doing a variety of bodyweight movements which is why I created PowerAbs! From my gymnastics background, there are many different movements that I include which are different from what you see most people doing. I wanted to share this knowledge with others and figured what better way to do it than creating an abs program that’s only 10 minutes a day so there is now excuse no to get it done.
One secret to my toned body is consistency and knowing the little things add up. Working out makes me feel great so I make sure I am consistent with my fitness. I also know that the little things add up so even if I only have 5 minutes, then I like to take a little walk or get in a little stretching rather than saying, I cannot do as long as I want so I am going to skip it. Consistency is key and the little things add up!
Five foods you absolutely love and five you keep to a minimum.
Five foods I absolutely love are oatmeal (this is actually probably the food I am most known for because I eat it up to 4 times a day), eggs, bell peppers (red are my favorite), salmon, and blueberries (really almost all berries and fruit but since I could only choose one, blueberries was it). I do not really think about certain foods that I keep to a minimum. However if I have to pick five then I would say pasta (I think part of this is that I ate a lot as a kid), hot dogs, French fries, soda, and white bread.
Five athletic leisure brands you love to wear.
Five athletic leisure brands I love to wear are NOBULL, Lululemon, Born Primitive, Nike, and Gymshark.
