Look (UK) - - LOOK FIT -

With three older rugby-play­ing broth­ers, Laura Wright, 26, was ‘on a mis­sion’ to prove to her dad that she was just as strong. We reckon she ac­com­plished that good ‘n’ proper. Rugby, Crossfit, Olympic weight lift­ing and so­prano singing… this girl does it all.

Why rugby? ‘It’s a re­ally open and ac­cept­ing en­vi­ron­ment. The best thing about rugby is that what­ever shape you are there’s a po­si­tion for you, spe­cific to your shape. I loved the fact that al­though I’m a bit taller and skin­nier than the other girls, it works to my ad­van­tage.’ get strong With sprints ‘When­ever I do sprints, I wake up the next morn­ing and my abs are in agony; you don’t re­alise that you’re ac­tu­ally us­ing so many body move­ments. Some­times I take my dog out run­ning and we do hill sprints; you can do them in the park or on an ath­letic track. Start with 60 me­tres and work up.’

Laura’s Mantra ‘Ev­ery­thing in mod­er­a­tion’
