This all round inspiring gal shares her top tips to building the all Australian beach body!!
1. Find a style of training that you love
As well as finding the time, you need to find a style of training that you really enjoy so you it keeps you motivated and coming back. I love starting my day with a sunrise run – for me, it’s the best head start and it really sets my momentum for the day. But we’re all different and it’s important to find the thing that works for you. Training should be exciting and fun, not a chore.
2. Train consistently
To get great results, you need to train consistently. Try get in at least three sessions a week, the repetitive motion is what improves your strength and allows you to progress to the next level. My advice would be to know your goals, and always have them in mind. Determination can be a really good motivator if you feel like you’re not up for a workout or straying from your diet. Write down what you’re aiming to achieve and always have a mental image of it in your mind.
3. Get in touch with nature
Nature is what grounds me and I love taking my training outside whenever I can – I’ll do a short circuit session at the park or the beach. It doesn’t have to be all high intensity though, I think it’s also really important to spend time relaxing in nature – walks along the beach, swims in the ocean, bush walks – it’s really grounding.
4. Eat Rainbow!
I like to keep things simple with my diet and stick to fruit, vegies and quality protein. We all have different tastes and you know what your body needs to function at its optimum capacity, just ask yourself a simple question when you ordering or buying food, “is this good nutrition for my body?” I love filling my plate with as many different fruits and vegetables as possible. Dreaming up new combinations of foods, flavours and textures keeps it interesting.
5. Read the label
Wherever possible, check the back of the packet and avoid foods with any ingredients you can’t pronounce. My favourite snack is Blue Dinosaur Bars – they have only 5 ingredients, so you know exactly what you’re eating.

The AABB app also feeds into Sally’s larger objective of combating childhood obesity, a bigger killer than smoking and one of Australia’s most pressing crises. When people train through AABB, they earn free Dream Dollars, which are converted to donating a skipping rope for disadvantaged children.
