1. What’s the best thing about being a StrongWoman athlete? What do you enjoy most about it? 

I love the training really hard and heavy while having movements that are technically difficult too. Gives me heaps to work on. 

2. How do you condition your body and mind when training for competitions? How does a typical training for a strong woman athlete look like?   

I make sure my coach and I have a plan, Ialso up my recovery and food leading into a competition. I normally do a strength/technique piece then alll accessories and a possible workout to do. 

3. What’s the recommended diet or fuel when preparing for StrongWoman competitions?

It is different for every single person so I would advise seeking out someone who can help you. However, I will say keep your protein high and don’t skip the carbs 

4. Can you give us one advice for anyone wanting to work their way up and join strong woman competitions?

Just join a group of people you feel comfortable with and who support you, give it a go and have some fun with it.

6. We’ve witnessed the captured moments of your wins, and we all know that behind those high moments are also the lows in the process of getting stronger. 

What were your struggles or challenges as a beginner in the StrongWoman sport and what was your biggest motivation to conquer them? 

Just learning the movements, not beating myself up when things got hard or I felt like I couldn’t do it.My inner strength and my need to want to grow as a person and to be constantly evolving is what motivates me. 

 7. StrongWoman is more than just a sport, it is a community that supports and encourages women to find their strength and practice it through strength sport. Given that, What’s the most valuable lessons you’ve learned from being a part of this community? 

To surround yourself with people who want you to win will make you go further. Enjoy the process enjoy your achievements andlove what your body can do for you. 

8. What are your plans or goals for 2021? 

 To train consistently and to find a gym I can get back into strongman training now that I’m on the Sunshine Coast. To get back to just loving how it feels to move and keep strong, fit and healthy…. And of course to compete as much as I can hahahah
