Justine is a Melbourne based sports model, fitness trainer and covergirl! Today she takes a break in between sets to talk to us about her training, diet and how she keeps motivated.
What inspired you to start training?
I have been active from a very young age. I used to dance and play all sorts of sports, so joining a gym when I was old enough felt like the right thing to do as I loved working out and feeling fit.
I began training seriously in 2008, after becoming a personal trainer in 2005 I felt it was time to up the anti and really walk the walk. I was in a much clearer head space and took a leap of faith and began training for my first sports model comp which was in Oct 2008, which I won.
From there the snowball effect happened and I am where I am now because I love the lifestyle and I love everything to do with the health and fitness industry.
Do you remember how you felt after your first workout?
Hmmm, that is testing the memory.. haha! I can remember how I felt after my first Body pump class, I was only 15. I am pretty sure that I was crippled for a week.
