Get to know our friend Libby Babet from Bottoms Up! Fitness and AGOGA on her breakfast choices, favourite workouts & makeup must-haves.
VIE ACTIVE LIST
Sunrise or Sunset workout? Which do you prefer?
High intensity interval training, mixed with multi-plane functional resistance training (weights or body weight).
This varies, depending on whether I’ve worked out or not, but usually something with protein (eggs, chicken, Sunwarrior protein smoothie)
What’s your ultimate healthy meal?
It’s so hard to choose – I love food and the fresher the better! I love a good fish with salad from Mongers in Bondi though, that’s hard to go past.
What are your makeup must-haves?
Mineral foundation – I love Jane Iredale, Dermaquest, or Nude by Nature.
What’s always in your gym bag?
A bikini, just in case I can fit in a quick swim at Bondi!
Best active holiday you’ve ever taken?
Surfing holidays at “The Pass” in Byron… bliss!
What totally relaxes you?
Reading a book! I love novels and the more magic contained in their pages the better. I know, I know…
What’s your biggest vice?
Dark chocolate! Let me guess… it’s yours too? ;)
What was the last thing you recommended to a friend?
Hexey – I get dinner delivered 5 days a week and I love it – healthy, organic, portion perfect meals delivered fresh every morning. The best thing ever when I get home late!
What’s always in your fridge?
Fresh coconuts, or Raw C coconut water.
What would we be surprised to find in your fridge?
Buffalo milk yoghurt. Not many people know about it but it’s a super delicious, healthy dairy alternative.
Your style icon?
Hmm… I don’t have one! But I LOVE surf gear, so I style-stalk all the surf websites for fashion ideas.
Your "healthy living" hero?
I love John Berardi from Precision Nutrition.
The wardrobe item you can’t live without:
The denim shorts I bought when I was 17 and still own today! I love these things so much that I won’t even leave them on the beach unattended while I swim, in the fear that someone will run off with them. We’ve been together for almost 15 years now and still going strong. Sigh…
The book/s on your bedside table right now:
The Wild Girl by K. Forsyth
Speed Trap by Charlie Francis
Three things on your bucket list:
Spend a week diving on Turtle Island in Fiji.
Launch AGOGA Online (watch this space…)
Have a baby (awww)
Your latest obsession:
Surfing! I’m not very good but I love being in the water.
Number one reason for living an active life:
It’s who I am. I truly couldn’t live any other way!
Message you’d send to the world:
Don’t give up what you want most for what you want right now.
