Sophie Guidolin is a nutritionist, master trainer, gym owner, author and world-renowned fitness model with numerous titles, most recently winning her IFBB Bikini Pro Card. Her passion for health started after her first pregnancy, during which she gained 28 kilos and developed gestational diabetes as a result of her unhealthy lifestyle. She started weight training and changed her diet, and she amazingly shed 30 kilos. Sophie has developed numerous workout and nutritional plans, transforming the lives of thousands of people, and is dedicated to leading a healthier, more active lifestyle. Counting macros along with weight training was the key to Sophie’s transformation. She believes in the practise of controlling your body fat and weight through nutrition, and controlling your muscle shape and size through weight training, which is her preference over doing hours of cardio in the gym and her program reflects this.
Women Fitness’ President Namita Nayyar recently spoke to Sophie, the inspirational mother of four, about her expertise on parenting, relationships, exercise and nutrition.
You Begin Your Day with?
A workout! The alarm goes off at 4:30am. I get up, get dressed, grab my overnight oats from the fridge (which I eat in the car), hit the gym for a weights session and am back at home before my four children are awake and ready to start their day.
The best part about being a mother?
I feel there are so many rewards being a mum, the moment your children accomplish new skills or the sound of their laughter. I love being the one who can comfort them when they’re sad or feel scared. I love being able to guide them through life and teach them new skills or knowledge.
When did you start enjoying working out?
After the birth of my second son, Ryder. I developed gestational diabetes in my first pregnancy [with son Kai, 11], and began walking while pregnant with Ryder. This later evolved to training in the gym (cardio-based), and I then started lifting weights as my confidence in the gym improved. Once I started weight training, I never looked back – I loved the feeling that being strong gave me, I loved the results, and I loved (and continue to love) the way you can achieve a lean, feminine shape with weights.
Your breakfast comprises of?
Overnight oats are my go-to and I make my own version of ‘Snicker Oats’ which I never get sick of – oats, water, chocolate protein powder, macadamia butter and maple syrup.
