Ms. Namita Nayyar: Your love with rock climbing began at a young age of four years and you started competing at the age of 7. Later your professional career propelled to the height where you have been at the top of the world of professional rock climbing by women, winning recently 2014 Bouldering World Cup at Innsbruck, Austria also at Grindlewald, Switzerland. Tell us something about this journey of success?
Ms. Shauna Coxsey: I guess my journey started the day I first went climbing. I fell in love with the sport straight away. I always dream of becoming a professional climber and winning world cups and I almost still can’t believe where I am now. It’s been a hard, intense and emotional journey but I couldn’t be happier. I am so lucky that I get to have my passion as my job.
Ms. Namita Nayyar: What exercises comprise your fitness regime or workout routine you may wish to share?
Ms. Shauna Coxsey: I work closely with my coach Mark. Since working with Mark I have trained harder than ever before. I’ve spent a lot of time working on my upper body strength, core strength and hanging of a Beastmaker to improve my finger strength. I also run a little bit to keep up my fitness. All of this is on top of climbing. I try to see climbing as fun and separate from training. I love climbing and still get so much enjoyment out of it. I think that ensuring I climb a lot as well as training really helps me to stay motivated.
Ms. Namita Nayyar: Do you take some special diet or have a strict menu that you follow to remain healthy and physically fit?
Ms. Shauna Coxsey: I definitely think about what I eat but I don’t actually follow a specific diet. I have tried a few different diets in the past but I don’t enjoying being strict with food. I think that I’m lucky because I really enjoy good food, I like to feel healthy and I love cooking. However, I also enjoy dessert and I love baking too. I am conscious about getting a balanced diet and having a good relationship with food. I don have to ensure that I have enough protein when I am training a lot and I’ll have smaller pieces of cake if I want to lean up for a competition.
Ms. Namita Nayyar: You have glowing skin and gorgeous hair. Do you take some kind of skin treatment to keep it young and glowing and secondly what you do to your hairs to make them look so stunning?
Ms. Shauna Coxsey: Thanks! I don’t do anything at all. I just get a healthy, balanced diet and exercise a lot.
