MP: What sparked your interest in health and fitness?


TN: I’ve always been into being healthy, but when I came to Melbourne I started doing weights, which is where I noticed more definition and shape. 

MP: You haven’t competed in any fitness competitions. However, you definitely have the body to do so. Are you thinking about competing? If so, what kind of competition are you interested in? 

TN: Yes, I actually was gonna try to compete this year for figure novice, which I started dieting and training for, but it got too much for me. However, I would definitely love to compete at the end of the year. I am going to go for sports model as I prefer the physique and it's a lot less stress on the body.  

MP: What has been your biggest fitness accomplishment to date? Why is this such an accomplishment for you? 

TN: I guess just sticking with it, pushing myself when I don’t feel like it, and making the right choices. I like to be different from everyone else.

MP: What are your favorite workouts to do in the gym and why? 

TN: My favorite would be legs. I love smashing them, especially with plyometrics. 

MP: Do you take any supplements? If so, what have they done for you? 

TN: I have only just recently started using SuperPump watermelon flavor. It is a pre-workout supplement, and I found it just gave me heaps more energy and strength to train. I only use it when I don’t feel like i'm in the mood to train. 

MP: What advice do you have for someone who is just starting out in the gym? 

TN: To not go too hard on yourself and don’t expect results over night. It is a lifestyle and it takes time, but with healthy eating and the right training you will see results. You will be addicted.

MP: Who are your biggest role models and why? 

TN: I would have to say I love Larrissa Reiss and Jaimie Eason They are amazing girly and dedicated all year round 

MP: What do you look for in a man? 

TN: He needs to be charming and a gentleman. He needs to be someone who can be your best friend, your lover, and who can make you laugh. 

MP: What are some things that turn you off on dates? 

TN: Men who are dressed scruffy and have bad breath. Also, I don't like if they have little to say.

MP: What do you like doing on your free time?

TN: I love relaxing spending time with friends

MP: What are your future goals both personally and professionally?
