What attracted you towards Football? When did you realize that you wanted to take up the sport at a professional level?
A lot of my family members played football, so I had to deal with it quite early and started playing when I was 3 years old. I’ve tried some other sports like handball, athletics and tennis but I’ve stuck with playing football. When I was first invited to a professional women’s football club I started to dream of playing professionally. That was when I was 16 years old.
Extensive energy & fitness is required for the sport you play. How do you go about maintaining your fitness level? What exercises comprise your fitness regime or workout routine?
Most of the fitness training needed is covered by my team training. Besides the technical and tactical training, we also work on improving athletics together. In addition to that, I also do some weight training and try to improve my fitness with mountain bike trips.
What diet do sportsperson need to follow? Any special diet you follow or have a strict menu that you follow to remain healthy and physically fit?
Basically the most important part of nutrition is not to burn less calories than to consume. I don’t follow any strict diet but I just try to eat healthy in general. This doesn’t mean though you’re not allowed to eat chocolate or drink coke now and then, just don’t do it too often. 😉
