Women Fitness President Ms. Namita Nayyar catches up with exceptionally talented supermodel and wrestler Katie Gannon to talk about her fitness routine, diet, skin care, hair care and her incredible success story.
Where were you born and had your early education? You have a rare personality of mesmerizing beauty with muscle. Tell us more about your professional journey of exceptional hard work, tenacity, and endurance?
I was born in Albany, NY where I went to Albany College of Pharmacy to be a pharmacist. This was a 6 year program that I completed, earning me a doctorate of pharmacy.
Firstly, thank you! I’ve always worked my hardest towards my goals- even though it can be very physically, mentally, and psychologically difficult. My wish is to experience all worlds in this life- the sky is the limit!
Brazilian jiu-jitsu is a self-defense martial art and combat sport based on grappling, ground fighting and submission holds. Mixed martial arts, also referred to as cage fighting, no holds barred, and ultimate fighting. You specialize in both forms of as a wrestler and combat fighter. Tell us more about this spectacular achievement of yours and your training for such fights that is very technical in nature?
When I trained MMA/BJJ and wrestling, I would train at least several days a week and a few hours each training day. This was in addition to going to the gym on my own and studying the sports at home. I initially started training BJJ/MMA to supplement my wrestling training, since many of these moves can be used in wrestling as well. I wanted to improve my submission holds and my overall fighting ability to make me a better wrestler. I usually have matches against larger women so I knew I had to “up” my game.
You are the world-leading social media personality, supermodel, and a health enthusiast, Brazilian jiu-jitsu fighter, mixed martial arts wrestler, Actress and brand ambassador. How do you manage such a remarkable multi-dimensional lifestyle?
It can be very difficult at times! I also am a fulltime pharmacist! I am able to do this through time management (at times sacrificing my own personal social life) and through eating a healthy diet and taking supplements. I really enjoy staying busy and experiencing all these different worlds; it’s my passion and what gives color to my life.
What exercises comprise your fitness regime or workout routine you may wish to share?
I do a bit of everything; I’m always watching videos and reading articles to learn new exercises. I usually train each body part 1-2 times per week for 1.5 hours and perform cardiovascular exercise (my favorite is the stair climber) for 15 minutes after weight training. I also stretch and perform calisthenics at home. Additionally, I have been learning gymnastics. My goal is to be able to do a backhand spring!
How do you train your abs? One secret to your toned body.
I usually train abs every day that I train at the gym (at the end of my workout). I pick 3 or 4 exercises targeting different part of the abs and superset them with as little rest as possible between sets. I’ll usually do 12-20 reps of each exercise and 3 sets of each exercise.
