Michelle Carter is exceptionally talented and highly accomplished American shot putter. She is two-time Olympian, American Record Holder, seven time USA Champion and 2015 World Championship Bronze Medalist. She is in conversation with Namita Nayyar, President Women Fitness.
Ms. Namita Nayyar: You was born in San Jose, California and raised in Ovilla,Texas, after graduating from The University of Texas, you went on to become a world leading athlete specializing in the shot put. You reached the pinnacle of success on being two-time Olympian, American Record Holder and 7-time USA Champion in shot put. What factors do you consider were responsible that made you achieve that?
Ms. Michelle Carter: The main factor I consider is my faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and His blessings. Hard work, never giving up and believing in myself. It would’ve been easy to stop at my first Olympics but I knew I had more in me and I still have more in me. I want to be the best, but most importantly I want to be my best.
Ms. Namita Nayyar: What exercises comprise your fitness regime or workout routine you shall like to share?
Ms. Michelle Carter: To be a thrower you have to be a great overall athlete. So in my workout I lift weights, throw, plyometrics, and sprints. I have to be in good shape. In college I would tell my teammates that that my workouts were harder than theirs. I wouldn’t work out with them on the track and I still had to go throw and lift weights. I was always the last one there. There’s a lot that goes into throwing the shot put that people don’t think about.
Ms. Namita Nayyar: Do you take some special diet or have a strict menu that you follow to remain healthy and physically fit?
Ms. Michelle Carter: I have always followed a balanced meal and just add extra protein. In the past few years there have been changes in my health. I struggle with hypothyroidism. I am taking my diet more serious and learning what works for the body I have now. I am still working on it. The main thing I am working on is eating clean. Eating whole foods and eliminating process foods out of my diet.
