Anna and­tim

Women's Health Australia - - FITNESS -

They met four years ago, have graced the cov­ers of

Women’s Health and Men’s Health re­spec­tively and, see­ing Anna Hein­rich, 30, and fi­ance, Tim Robards, 34, to­gether on set in Sydney, it’s not hard to see why. Anna, a lawyer, brand am­bas­sador and au­thor of loveal­waysanna. com, has al­ways been fit. But meet­ing chi­ro­prac­tor Tim, cre­ator

of the new 12 Minute Abs Chal­lenge, amped up her passion for healthy liv­ing. “It’s easy to stay mo­ti­vated when your part­ner is as ac­tive as mine,” says Anna. “We’re a team, and

Tim con­tin­u­ally en­cour­ages me to come train with him. I al­ways say, sur­round your­self with pos­i­tive,

up­lift­ing and ac­tive peo­ple and it rubs off on you.”

And what has Tim learnt from Anna? “Start­ing your day off with a smile be­fore you even get out of bed is so im­por­tant to set the tone of your day,” he says.

When asked if there’s an as­pect of health they ap­proach dif­fer­ently, Anna laughs, “I eat the whole block of choco­late while Tim has just one piece.” But she’s also thought­ful about how she ap­proaches food: “I usu­ally eat from a small plate. It makes it less likely you’ll overeat, with­out com­pro­mis­ing on taste, per­ceived full­ness or en­joy­ment

– easy and ef­fec­tive,” she says. “I’ve also adopted, where I can, in­ter­mit­tent fast­ing, which for me means

I’ll some­times com­bine my break­fast and lunch – so my first meal of the day will be around mid­day. Though I’ll more than likely have snuck in a cof­fee be­fore that!”

When we ask them what they’d like to achieve in the next decade,

Tim laughs, “Com­plete

[Aus­tralian] Ninja War­rior!”

(He re­cently lost his grip on the cargo net ob­sta­cle on the TV show af­ter an in­jury.) As for Anna? “I’ll con­tinue to main­tain my ap­proach to health and ex­er­cise like I do now. I’m 30 and I feel fit­ter and health­ier than when I was 20, so I’m hoping that will be the same when I hit 40!”
