In 2020 you aimed for the stars and moved to the USA, with your US TV debut on ‘The Go Big Show’. Share more input about your journey on TV.
I’ve wanted to be on TV since as young as I can remember – I even had a tv clapboard and Oscar statue in my childhood bedroom. It’s amazing that my first-ever performance was in front of 8 million viewers on live TV and even now with over 30 tv appearances and multiple film credits, I still get nervous to be on camera. One of the biggest lessons I’ve learned is to be 100% authentic myself. You can’t fake being genuine – people sense it immediately. I would much rather people fall in love with me than a character I’m playing – and if they don’t love me, at least I love myself!
What is your daily fitness routine? How do you like to kick-start your day?
I begin every day by drinking water and taking vitamins. I love my vegan Omega 3 and I swear by saffron! As someone who is usually quite hard on me, it really boosts my mood and self-appreciation. If I’m not performing I will train 3-6 hours per day which is usually a mixture of archery trick shots, handstand training, and fun! That can be making content or simply dancing like no one is watching. I also love to run usually around 4 times per week – whilst most of my training is indoors these days, nothing can replace the joy of outdoor exercise.
5 key essentials to excel in any sport or hobby according to you.
- Fall in love with the process. I do it by mixing up my training sessions and always allowing at least half an hour to have fun/be silly.
- Remind yourself that resting is training! I used to feel very guilty taking a day off and lying in bed, but now I realize how important the rest process is for improvement.
- If you’re struggling to motivate yourself – just drive/arrive at your training space. By placing yourself within the environment you’ve already achieved the hardest part, which is getting there.
- Change your identity. If you are going for a jog – you are a runner. If you are trying a new sport – you’re an athlete. The moment you identify as the thing you are trying to become, it will alter the belief you have in yourself and strengthen your actions.
- Learn your body! Learn the difference between pushing yourself and causing an injury. Learn how much you can train before you hit burnout. Learn the diet that gives you the best energy for your activity. You can see all the doctors and nutritionists in the world but it’s down to you to fully understand your own unique requirements. You don’t just want to train hard, you want to train smart, and knowing what works best for you will get you optimum results
