‘It’s hard to avoid chip shop chips!’ height: 5ft 2in WEIGHT: 8st SIZE: 6-8

Hey Suzanne! What’s your favourite way to work out? I love HIIT (High In­ten­sity In­ter­val Train­ing) cir­cuits and I use the TRX (sus­pen­sion train­ing) quite a bit. I try to work out at least three times a week, but it doesn’t al­ways work out with kids around. Any fit­ness hacks you can share? A great work­out is hav­ing Raffy (Suzanne’s one-year-old son) on my hip and do­ing the house­work with the other hand! Do you have a body part that you strug­gle to keep in shape? Legs. They’re the first place I gain weight.

What’s your killer leg work­out? Squats. They’re the best thing for legs. Run­ning up and down steps too! Are there any foods you avoid? High-su­gar sweets and choco­late have never been for me. The hard­est thing to avoid is chip-shop chips. My mouth actually wa­ters as I’m say­ing it. I’d eat them ev­ery day. Do you fol­low any mo­ti­va­tional so­cial me­dia pages? I like Clean Eat­ing Alice (@al­ice­liv­e­ing). She was my mo­ti­va­tion when I first had a baby. How did you lose the baby weight? I had a bril­liant trainer who works with a lot of mums after they’ve had a baby, so he knows if he pushes you too hard you aren’t going to want to go back to him.
