Tell us more about yourself
What are your personal fitness goals?
I’m in it for the long run. I want to push myself to get out of my comfort zone and become a name in fitness linked to Rise by Hayley T-Rex. My personal fitness goals are to win fitness competitions, become a brand ambassador and to eventually open up my own fitness and lifestyle centre.
How will you use your #BiogenFaceOfFitness ambassadorship to inspire women to lead a healthy / fit lifestyle if you win?
I would post motivational images and messages for women to keep pushing and take that next, necessary step to having the body and lifestyle that they want. I will promote body positivity and self confidence. I will use real-life and personal examples of how fitness has changed my life for the better and how it can also change theirs.
What health and fitness quote or mantra do you live by?
“Just do it”
Tell us about your fitness lifestyle
Fitness is my life. Most days during the week, I get up at 4am to go to gym as work typically starts around 7. Even on weekends, I don’t start relaxing until I’ve finished my exercise. I go to the gym to constantly push myself. If I’m not sore the next day, then I know I wasn’t pushing hard enough. I religiously keep track of my body measurements and take photos to track my progress on a weekly basis. I also keep track of my daily steps and calories burnt. I’m highly competitive and involved in a few friendly step count competitions with a few other ladies, which pushes me to reach and surpass my own goals. I’m very strict with my eating and only treat myself every now and then when I’m happy with my progress.
Why do you think you’re the Biogen Face of Fitness?
With my drive and competitive edge, I feel that I will be able to do an excellent job promoting the brand, as well as motivating and inspiring others to pursue a healthy and fit lifestyle. I have worked hard to get to where I am now and will continue working even harder to get to where I want to be. Fitness is my passion and I believe that I can use this passion for the benefit of Biogen and women everywhere.
