It’s like brushing my teeth, it needs to be done. Health is wealth.

What is your favourite workout song?

It changes all the time.

Does dressing up for gym make it easier?

It doesn’t make the training easier, but it makes me feel good to look at myself in the mirror lifting weights in amazing training outfits.

What do you eat on your cheat days?

Whatever I’m in the mood for, but I don’t have cheat days. I believe in balance.

Three exercises we should not be skipping during our workout?

Squats, weights, strength training.
