Strug­gle to force a smile when you’re sweat­ing it out at the gym? Aus­tralian PT Ash­leigh Lawrence en­sures her 16.9k fol­low­ers see the fun side of work­ing out… En­joys A Chal­lenge ‘I like set­ting a goal and see­ing if I can smash it. I al­ways wanted to squat with one and a half times my body weight; now I can do more than that! Now I chal­lenge my­self with ob­sta­cle course races. They keep me on my toes.’ she loves weights ‘I love strength train­ing be­cause I en­joy the men­tal and phys­i­cal chal­lenge of al­ways striv­ing to lift a heav­ier weight. I get a bit bored spend­ing longer than 10 min­utes on the tread­mill.’ the Killer move ‘Squats. They give you so much bang for your buck by work­ing your glutes, ham­strings, quads and calves all in one move­ment. If you’re go­ing heavy, you’ll get a good core work­out, too. Not to men­tion you feel like an ab­so­lute boss with the bar on your back.’ Ash’s Food AD­VICE ‘Fuel your body with ad­e­quate pro­tein, fats and carbs. if you don’ t eat enough good whole foods for your ac­tiv­ity needs, your body will de­mand a re-feed; that’s when you’ll crave sugar. Don’t beat your­self up if you have a bad meal; just get back on track at the next one.’

Ash­leigh’s made get­ting fit fun
