You are a leading media personality, supermodel, influencer, choreographer, beauty pageant winner, entrepreneur, and brand ambassador. How do you manage such a remarkable multi-dimensional lifestyle?
First of all – I love life; I love people so I love doing life as weird as It might sound. I just love living my life to the fullest and leave footprints of my work that can potentially make someone’s life better, influence or motivate them to do the greatest things.
Behind the scenes, my life can seem quite boring as I do miss out on social gatherings with my friends, occasional dinners, movie nights, extended holidays and just having a day off sounds a little bit unrealistic in my current climate, but I do get energy from the excitement living this life and achieve results.
At the end of the day, when I feel tired, exhausted or even frustrated, all I can think about is somebody might go to bed now and have some rest or concentrate on a bad day they had. But let me do another couple of hours of work to get closer to many greater things in life that I might miss out!
You have completed Certificates 3 &4 in Fitness and is a qualified Master Trainer and Nutritionist adviser. How this education and knowledge has helped you in your excelling in modeling and beauty pageant career?
To be honest, when I started to compete I couldn’t eat at all and I would starve myself for days before because I was so nervous and felt like any meal will make me feel 10 kilos heavier so I ended up with being super exhausted and with lack of any nutrients which I understood were not healthy for my body and mind. So since I’m a person who likes to challenge myself and deal with the problem, I decided to obtain Master Trainer certificate and start nutrition course – reading about it and educating yourself on diet and exercises are essential for absolutely everyone regardless of what job you do. I believe our gut is our second brain and we have to treat him right. When it comes to exercises – pageant wise, we can improve our posture, our walk developing a stronger core that directly affects our balance especially having heels on. As well as working as a model and posing for hours – you need to train your body and muscles so you don’t get too sore by the end of the day. Improving your posture and toning your muscles through is not something you would do just for a pageant, this is something everyone is battling these days due to sedentary jobs in the office, hospitality workers being on the feet all day, drivers and many more people who underestimate the importance of these exercises.
I did compete in natural bodybuilding competition in ACN and won two NSW titles in bikini section in Australia. I don’t think I did it right as I was feeling sick on stage so I believe doing these types of competitions require a lot of time for training, meal planning and preparation, eating, most importantly -adequate amount of rest and have somebody very experienced to guide you with the right advises. These titles I took – I prepared and trained by myself with no guidance which I think made me feel so sick on stage so don’t underestimate professional advice from trainers who have done it for many years and care about your wellbeing as their first priority.
What exercises comprise your fitness regime or workout routine you may wish to share?
If I am at the gym – pull-down for my back, working with cables triggers to switch more muscles in general, bodyweight workouts are great to keep you in tone with minimizing injuries which we can’t afford these days having our busy lifestyles. I do cardio and I truly love it – which can be an issue or boring for some I understand – but do a big favour to your heart and choose your favorite type of cardio instead of weights to serve your ‘best friend’ so it can supply you with more years of healthy life.
Everyone is so different so whatever suits and feel better for your body are the best exercises because our body knows better and we sometimes underestimate it by following the trending advises that doesn’t suit absolutely everyone.
