What motivates you to train?
To break barriers. To push past what I thought was possible with my body and achieve what once seemed out of reach.

What exercise and fitness myth winds you up?
Lifting weights makes you bulky or that carbs make you fat!

How to listen to my body, it’s okay to take time to rest and recover, in fact it’s crucial.

What’s your advice to someone wanting to reach their own peak fitness?
Write down your goals, make them specific and read up or speak to somebody that has achieved it. Surround yourself with positivity and keep working a little everyday to get closer to them!
