WHY AND WHEN DID YOU START FITNESS AND MODELLING?

I actually started modelling when I was about 15, so a long time before I started working out. It was something that I enjoyed and always had an interest in but every job that came up I didn't think I would be "good enough". I was a pessimist, always negative & always putting myself down. All through my childhood up until my mid 20's I was insecure with who I was.

In 2010 I picked up my first copy of Oxygen Magazine, which is a top women's fitness magazine. At that time I had been exercising for about 6 months but didn't really know what I was doing. I was the typical cardio machine girl, obsessing over being lean & skinny. I had no idea that you shape & tone your body by doing strength training and eating plenty of food including good fats and carbohydrates.

I used to look through countless fitness magazines at the amazing, fit, strong, shapely women featured in them and I decided that I wanted to be like that too! I wanted to be strong, have shape, be fit and healthy and most of all be happy with myself.

WHAT ARE YOUR GOALS AND WHAT ARE YOUR DREAMS?

I entered a covergirl competition for the Australian Oxygen Magazine in 2011 and made it to the top 5. I was thrilled as I was only fairly new to training. I then made it one of my main goals to be on a future cover. In the end of 2012 I had my cover shooting for the Oxygen Magazine, so I reached my goal quite fast.

However, one of my biggest achievements is that I became content with myself! Becoming fit and healthy has helped me immensely with my confidence. It comes as a package. You feel free and truly alive. Right now I am just happy with who I am. I live & breath health and fitness so being a fitness model and personal trainer suits me perfectly. And with my F.I.T. Program I want to help people to achieve their health and fitness goals

WHO IS YOUR FITNESS/ BODYBUILDING IDOL?

I have so many! Anyone who is working hard on their goal or has accomplished or overcome something inspires me. My biggest inspirations are the people around me who constantly inspire me without even realizing it.

HOW DOES YOUR WORKOUT-PLAN LOOK LIKE?

I do a mixture of weights, circuits, sprints and intervals. I listen to my body and if I’m too tired to train I won’t. I push my body to its limits – not passed them.

I think for women legs are the most important part so I train them twice a week. I also do abs every 3 days. However, to get a nice balanced physique you need to work on every body part.

TRAININGSSPLIT

  • Monday - Legs (heavy)
  • Tuesday - Shoulders
  • Wednesday - Bis & Tris using dumbbells & cables
  • Thursday - Legs (light/high rep range)
  • Friday - Back
  • Saturday - Circuit/sprints/tabata/intervals
  • Sunday - REST!

Emily Skye Supplementation

WHAT SUPPS DO YOU TAKE ON A DAILY BASIS?

I take L-Glutamine a few times a day & L-Carnitine before training or in the morning on the days I don’t train. I also take whey protein shakes if I don’t get enough protein throughout my normal diet.

Special supplements to get leaner? To get lean I don’t take any special supplements. Training with less rest in between sets, circuit/tabata training & eating smaller portioned meals help me to lose some extra weight. I eat less or no carbs at night, I cut out sugar including fructose, cut back on dairy & keep active throughout the day!

Emily Skye Motivation

WHAT IS YOUR MOTIVATION?

My motivation is that I know exactly what I want! I keep my goal in focus at all times. I have never felt better physically and mentally and that is a big reason why I don’t have much trouble staying motivated.

When I started I had a clear picture of my goal – it’s nearly impossible to achieve something if you don’t even know what it is you actually want. Every time I felt unmotivated I looked at the photos and reminded myself of what I want & why I want it!

WHAT ARE YOUR TOP 3 TIPPS YOU CAN GIVE EVERY GYMGOER?

  • If you’ve got a dream, you’ve gotta go for it, believe in yourself and know that you can and will do it!
  • If there are stairs run up them. If you are doing a lot of work on the computer, get up every hour or so and stretch, then do quick exercises (air squats/lunges, ab crunches or push-ups). Every bit of movement you do throughout the day adds up!
  • If you want a chocolate - have it! But then, on the next training session train extra hard to make up for it.
  • To stay motivated replace negative thoughts with positive thoughts.
