Jessica Harvey Interview
MP: How do you balance your time between being a promotional model and teaching with living a healthy lifestyle?
Jess: With my modeling (teaching and working), im always moving about showing the girls how to walk, stand and soforth im always getting that physical activity though my work and when things quieten down I make sure I go for a jog or a swim. To keep the balance and have a healthy lifestyle I make sure that im always on the go getting that physical movement and eating all the time. I get hungary just hanging the washing out haha…when im working and flat out I make time for healthy foods and I make sure that I have meat and vegatables everynight for tea. I also make sure I get a healthy breakfast and a very filling lunch No matter what I have going on in my life.
MP: Are you more of a weight training girl or a cardio girl? Why do you prefer one over the other?
Jess: I would say im more of a cardio girl, I really feel like I have got a lot out of a fast paced workout that gets the heart rate up. I believe that weight training (muscle building) is boring haha..i like a challenge and to keep up- beat and moving like aerobics and the bikes, swimming and running. I don’t exactly go to the gym and have a specific workout, I just like to get the body moving in any type of physical activity, whether it be through my work as a teacher or running about of a day.
MP: As a model whom competes in various contests, in which your body and figure is being judged, how do you keep in shape? What kind of pressure is this and how do you exercise and train in preparation for these contests?
Jess: I was born very petite and small so I like to keep healthy but don’t push myself to extremes to keep toned and any weight down, because I don’t need to. So there is never really any pressure. Usually before a competiton I’ll go jogging and maybe a swim but that’s about it. I mainly keep in shape through eating healthy vegies and meat at least 5 times a week and I get that physical activity through my teaching and modeling. Haha and through strutting, walking, posing and standing.
MP: You were recently selected as 1 of 12 girls selected for Australia to be a Grid Girl for all the 2010 V8 racing series. What is a Grid Girl and what kind of honor is this? What comes with being a Grid Girl?
Jess: Being a Grid Girl is an awesome job, I did the 2009 v8 races for tasmania and worked on the grid’s assigned to the bottolo car. The job consisted of promoting the brand out around the crouds and holding up the bottolo flags near the car right before the start of the race. A grid girl is assigned to a car to promote them and hand out promotional items such as hats and stubby holders. You also stand with the drivers whilst they are signing autographs. For the 2010 v8 racing series the grid girl will be flown from their home town to where the race will be held for the weekend, all up there is about 14 rounds all across australia. At each event bits and pieces of the girls working as grid girls will be filmed and made into a tv show, to be show on fox sports and fuel tv. Called grid girls australia.
MP: Tell us your experiences with being a Ralph Australian Swimsuit finalist for 4 years straight and winning the Miss Cougar 09 contest. Why is this recognition so important to you and yourcareer?
Jess: Being a Ralph finalist and winning miss cougar were huge recognitions because of the experience that was gained from doing this and ralph and miss cougar are so well known that it looks really good under things that I have completed as a paegent model and promotional model. And you don’t get anywhere in the modeling industry unless you keep trying and trying.
MP: You enjoy doing gymnastics and swimming. What kinds of experiences do you have with these sports and what kinds of positive impact has it had on your fitness level?

Gymnastics for me was an all rounder in fitness it worked on all parts of the body all in one session. I still swim and love it, it’s a real fun sport you don’t feel like your working out. Its more fun. Swimming is a great sport to get that heart rate up and get the whole body moving.

I choose this a one career path because I love what I do and it is only of a night time that you teach and bits and pieces through the day with the managent side.
