Does Zoë look familiar? It's probably because you've seen her all over BodyScience's recent advertising campaigns!
She's been competing since 2010 and has taken some time out of her busy schedule to talk to us about her training, motivation and some important advice for those starting out in the gym.
What inspired you to start training?
I have always being fit and athletic! I was a tomboy growing up and super active! I was inspired to start structured weight training in 2011 after 1 year competing and desiring a more muscular physique. I was already ripped from lots of yoga and Pilates, but I was tiny! I have gained 7kg of lean muscle since then!
What does your current weekly training routine look like?
I have achieved my physique through a combination of strength training, Yoga/Pilates/Tai chi and some cardio. I tend to apply a 70% strength / 20% stretching/flexibility / 10% cardio ratio. However I always listen to my body and if things feel unbalanced then I'll adjust my regime to fix this! I do 4-5 weights sessions, 2-3 Pilates/Body Balance classes and 1-2 interval sessions each week + I walk 1 km on the treadmill before every weights session to warm up.
